Not very happy you doing away with the online custom form feature. It came in handy.

What do you need? You can add/change fields using the manage forms to customize. It does not currently have some of the field options, but we do hope they will come. They have been requested of the development staff.

I couldn't agree more about the loss of custom forms. I don't need a basic "contact me" form. I have an application form that has 40+ fields using drop downs, check boxes, list boxes, etc. (go to http://www.eastcountytennis.com/CampSummer2017SignUpForm.html to view form). I'm so bummed as I just spent 5 hours creating a new site that needs such a form. Stupid of me I guess... I had created almost ALL the other pages before I tried to create the form page. Only to see that the feature isn't available. PLEASE add this feature to Website Builder. PLEASE!

Richard you might try the form maker at www.mycontactform.com and see if that will do what you need.

Thanks Susan. I did just subscribe and created a form and it is a work around. Thank you for that. But I'm hopeful Homestead doesn't just fall back on this as the long term solution. I certainly like the new features of Website Builder, but it really would be much better if forms were internal rather than external.

I totally agree Richard. Forms are an integral part of web sites and hopefully as time goes on the developers will include the ability to create more complex forms. Glad that the other one worked for you so you could get up and running.

Please tell me how to get to the "managed forms" area. As I don't see it.

Click on the form in the editor and on the right side you should see the properties editor.

You're welcome. Unfortunately, some options, like check box and drop downs are not yet available, but you can build a much large form and customize the fields somewhat.

Since custom forms does not have all the necessary elements as yet, is there a way to use HTML snippet as a workaround? I need a form that will submit the content to an email address. Is there a way to customize my HTML form so that it works?

Unfortunately, just like Sitebuilder there is no way to access the code. You could use an HTML box to write a complete form in HTML, or use a 3rd party form builder that can provide you with the needed HTML.
