  5. When you are happy with the fields proceed to the last stage of the form which is to create the HTML code to place on your website.

You can add the form to any website you wish by copying the code into the HTML code of the page you want it to appear on. If your website is on our old editor, you can add it easily by:

  1. Click on the "Manage Pages" and then "Content Pages" menu item in the "Website" side of thewebconsole.
  2. Click on "Edit" next to the page you want to add the form to (or if you don't have a page, click on the "Add a Page" button).
  3. Click on the "Source" button in the top right hand area of the toolbar.
  4. Paste the code into the page by right clicking on the page and selecting the "Paste" option that appears or just press "Ctrl + V" ("Cmd + V" on Mac) when your cursor is placed where you want the code.

Test the page to ensure it works as desired.

  3. If you already have a section where you would like your website sign up form placed you can simply drag a text box into the section and follow the steps below, otherwise drag out a section to the desired place from your drag and drop menu on the left hand side of your page.
  4. Hover your mouse over the text box and click the pencil on the right hand side to edit the text box.
