Does any one know how this works where do the emails go?
Do I have to make a text file and direct to?
Do I have to add my email address into the code?

More Info Needed, Do i just link to the html page or add it to my page?

I have been trying or not trying to create subscribe to put on my website to Add and And direct input of email and name to a text file (in my root) on my website.
So from time to time I can copy text file and add to a list.

Or maybe even direct it directly to my email?
to collect visitors email and name still don't know how to do it cant figure it out

To take advantage of the email soliciting feature of this script one generally needs a server side interface such as possible with PHP, asp, ASP.NET, etc. Once the email is obtained it can, for instance be added to a database for future mailings, or to have the email address be sent to you, or to have a standard email sent to the user immediately, etc.. In other words, this script simply supplies a functional, attractive interface for soliciting user's email addresses. Once obtained, what you do with those email addresses is up to you. A standard form element is supplied, by editing its action attribute, upon submission of that form, server side code can take over.

Well, as it stands now, the user/customer if they're using this script can submit their email address via a form to a server side script. That's the default setup. But you can have other things happen instead, none of which would be useful if there isn't anything on the server side to pick it up.

Now I don't know what your host requires/uses, but there's a chance it can be adapted to appear in the popup (the content of the popup is completely editable). You can ask for more than just the email there, it's up to you what HTML code to put there and it's up to you, when it's submitted - well you can decide how it's submitted and to where on the server. Since I don't know what your host requires in that regard, I can't say much more. Ask them if you can have a form of your own devising submitted and, if so, what information it has to have, and where it would be submitted to. It's possible their method is too proprietary to fit that model though, if so, ask them if an AJAX call would work, and if so, to what page/script and again what information is required. And again, might not work with what they have. There's no guarantee this can be worked out. But if you get no help from your host, give me the address to what (the page where you currently get user info) they do accept as far as the inputting of user/customer info. I MIGHT be able to figure it out from that.

Yes, server and host mean about the same thing. The host is the company though, the server is the specific equipment they're dedicating to your account. Often though these terms are used interchangeably, as the host can mean the host server.

As for the information sent me in private, it may take me a bot to sift through it to see what MIGHT be able to be done. Have you communicated with your host? They would, if so inclined, and it's possible, probably be more able to tell you what you need to do.

From what you've been telling me though, it sounds as though they may require a specific proprietary method of loggin user information that includes a login. IF that's the case, there's nothing you can do other than follow that or get a different host, or at least a different type of account with the current host.

I'll still have a look at what you've sent me in private, but you really should be talking to your host or at least contacting their customer service to see if there are any suggestions they might have to offer.

Any one know hot to use these DD script with Formspree?

Is this possible?

From what I can see, you would build and host your own form on your own website, and then you just point the form "action" to the Formspree website for it to process.

If that's the case, you would follow the installation instructions for the DD scripts, and install them on your own website using the demo code provided as reference.

If you are having problems installing the scripts on your own website, please provide a link to your page so that we can see what you're having problems with.
