I have a single long page and want to have multiple forms offering to collect the same information on it. Is there a way or suggested way to do this? I'm using Front Page (as if it matters?). I'd like to retain some sort of validation so I know that may be tricky. It would basically require seeing if the information was filled in on any of the other forms and then fill that data back on the original so that required data was filled in (email address).

Kevin,

There should be no problem placing multiple forms on the same page. As for the auto-fill in stuff, this is not possible with myContactForm.com.

Thanks,

Nick,

My concern is that if I'm requiring certain information - such as email address - and desire to have the same form in multiple places - that individuals will have to fill in their email address twice and other required fields twice/three/four times.

Here's an example of what I want to do

WEBPAGE

TEXT TEXT TEXT
PICTURE

Please fill in the form below for more information:
Name*:
Email Address*:

TEXT
TEXT
TEXT
PICTURE

Please fill in the form below for more information:
Name*:
Email Address*:

I'm sorry, but limitations in server side internet technologies do not make this possible. You may be able to do this with some client side technologies (ie javascript) but it is not a possibility using myContactForm.com. You would have to make these changes on your one from your end after you get the HTML we provide. Just be careful because it may break your forms.

Thanks,

They will not all come in a single email. Only the information provided for the given form will be put into the given email. They all however can be configured to go to the same address.

Sincerely,
