I've been using an extention called HDW Form2mail for Dreamweaver for a while. It has always been a simple way to get info from my site without a database. But it's not working right in DWCS6. I notice that while placing form elements in my form that the info box that use to pop up in DWCS5 no longer comes up. You use to be able to insert labels and other options. Is that now removed?
Anyway, when I go back and creat the form in CS5 and use Form2mail it works perfect. But in DWSC6 it does not.
Here are examples if you have moment.
This is the one created in CS5 that works perfect:
This is the one that doesn't work done in DWCS6:
By the way, I contacted the maker of this extention and downloaded the latest version.
Any insight would be so appreciated!
Thanks for your reply.
So Dreamweaver no longer inserts the code for you like it used to? For instance I now how to manually write in labef for command? It's much easier to go back to DWCS5 to configure my forms? I don't see how this would make it easier for me? Seems like more work. I thought the whole advantage of Dreamweaver was that it made things easier. I don't get it.
I appreciate your response and could still use more of a tutorial of hoe forms are done now in DW6.
And why did they make this change anyway?
If you have a form that works, put that code in your Snippets Folder for quick insertion into other web pages. Working this way, I have little need for Form tools.
For Cloud users, DW 12.1 update introduced a significantly re-organized Insert Menu.
If these changes adversely effect your workflow, tell Adobe about it.

Good advice. Thanks.
I had already filled out that form for Adobe and let them know how I felt.
I also had already done the 12.1 update which is exactly when it all changed (not for the better in my opinion).
Thanks again for your time.
