Hi There,

Im new to these forums so sorry if this is posted in the wrong place, basically I have tried to find a good contact form for my website and finally found one with captcha and have successfully put it on my page, however it will only position in the bottom left hand side of the page, i used photoshop and sliced the images to create my html pages and then converted it into a php page and used

<?php include "index.php"; ?>

within my images ready slices where i wanted the form to be, however it still appears on the bottom left hand side of the page, ive tried everything i can think of and really need help fixing this, you can see the page at http://www.scouttheuk.com/contactus.php

(im relatively new to web design so please ignore any design issues, however if you have any suggestions to make my page look better they would be much appreciated)

Thanks

Danny

Hi Danny and welcome to the forum

All of the experienced designers would advise you very much against your method for creating your HTML. Photoshop isn't designed to write code so you really need to hand cut your graphics and rebuild it in DW using HTML and CSS for positioning. This will help you to learn how to position your form correctly.

You've also managed to create two web pages in one. You have re-referenced the head and body tags. If using php includes you must take out the code that DW automatically writes for you when you create a new page as it is not needed twice.
