    Required Form Fields

    HYPER83
      I've got a booking form here http://www.investix.co.uk/multiflex3/booking-form.html

      Everything is working fine except I'm getting a lot of forms through without some of the important fields being filled in by the user (ie; booking date, name, email etc) and its quite annoying, so I think I should make all of the fields required before the form can be submitted - I think this is fairly standard now.

      Anyone know how to do this in DW? I know some forms use red asterisks beside each field that needs to be filled out before the form can be submitted, but I've never known how to do this in DW.

      How much work is involved in doing this? Is there an automated method of doing this in DW?

      Thanks for all your help in advance guys.

          you are using the remotely hosted formmail.com to process the data.
          Check their info about optional form field names for one named "required"
          It's in the formmail script so they probably have included it in the
          remotely hosted setup.

            Hello,

            Unrelated, but I wanted to pass on that the menu is badly broken in IE7 and
            FF.
            "Why Investix" and "Coaching" are below the rest of the menu, and the
            dropdowns stack in one spot.

            Take care,
            Tim
