Hi guys,

Half way through designing a site for a local conference and weddings venue, just put in the e-mail contact form, but unsure on how to setup required fields for Name, Tel, E-mail, etc. Can anyone advise me on the easiest way to do this?

The site is temporarily up at www.gregfindley.com/courtstairs

Thanks!
Greg

(edit) also forgot to ask is it easy to change the colour of the boxes? on Name and E-mail fields its currently a light yellow?

on Name and E-mail fields its currently a light yellow? This is most likely a local setting in the Google Toolbar on your browser to indicate which of the form fields can be filled in automatically.

Thanks dom, that figures as it doesn't show up in IE where I do not have the G toolbar installed! I'll leave that then :)

Any ideas on the required fields side of things?

Thanks,
Greg

PS- what do you think of the design so far? This is their existing design- http://www.thecourtstairs.co.uk/index.html)

I think it's certainly time they upgraded their website!
I really like the site you've designed Greg, the style, colours and design fit well with the venue and their line of business.

Regarding your contact form. Javascript is a good way to do the required fields bit on your form. Have a look on Hotscripts or somewhere like that for further info.
