Hosting / Forms
Create forms for your sites. CloudCannon sends named form data to email addresses of your choosing. Alternatively, use a hook to integrate with services like Zapier or IFTTT.
To create a form:
- Add an HTML form to a file
- Set the
methodattribute to post
- Set the
actionto where the visitor is redirected after the form submission
- Add form fields with
nameattributes to collect data from visitors
Use these fields to customise the email CloudCannon sends through the form. The fields can be hidden or visible depending on your requirements.
The address (or addresses) that CloudCannon sends the email to. Send the email to multiple addresses by separating them with commas.
_hook is defined, this field will not be used.
The value used for the Reply-To header in the email. Use this to ensure clients reply to the visitor rather than a default CloudCannon address.
The subject of the email.
The value used for the CC header in the email. Use this to send a copy in another address (or addresses) without sending it directly. Send a copy of the email to multiple addresses by separating them with commas.
Instead of sending an email, a webhook can be supplied for the data to be sent to.
Honeypot field for preventing untargeted spam. CloudCannon does not send the email if this field has a value. Hide it with CSS to prevent visitors filling it out.
For better spam prevention try using Google reCAPTCHA.
