Any Suggestions on Replacing Exported Forms of Webflow due to GDPR?

Thanks again for taking your time to give me kindly feedback. I have to ask, I don’t understand where the $120 number comes from?

That is what I expecting. Thank you for this documentation. Simple and clean. Hope it will many others. I will start implementing in on my sites in few days.

$120 yearly - $10 a month :wink:

My forms have stopped working. If I go to dashboard settings forms I can see the entries but the details are not being forwarded to the recipient. Anyone else had this issue…seemed to happen from 1st May approx.

Thanks

Hi guys hope you don’t mind me dropping in here, i see lots of questions regarding forms and how to implement the change over from the Webflow service. If you are understanding how to be GDPR compliant (if this is applicable to you) there are many guides as to how you do this, one is here:

If you are hosting your own sites (without the Webflow database/attributes which is not exportable) you can just build your own e-mail submission form based on the above GDPR compliancy.

https://www.w3schools.com/html/tryit.asp?filename=tryhtml_form_mail

W3schools is probably THE most important resource for anyone learning web-design or having to tackle code. For anyone who is using Webflow, which takes away all the hard coding, eventually you will have to tackle code in some sort of way and it is important to know how to do this.

When you export your code for your own hosting you access your public_html directory on your server (cPanel) locate your contact page and edit the code, the code you create within W3schools (or inside a text editor) you just paste where the Webflow form code is, replacing the existing code.

As long as you are using the GDPR guide and collecting information correctly the form submission will send visitor contacts under new GDPR regulations.

I hope this helps or makes sense, i know there are lots of great solutions here but thought some of you may find this resource very useful, especially for anyone that is new to coding or wishes to learn. W3schools also teaches you Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) and a multitude of useful coding solutions that will help you to build beautiful websites that function as they should, or to the point, how you want them to.

…and it’s free!

Hi Folks,

Jesse here from FormToEmail. Our forms are compatible with Webflow and offer a variety of other integrations such as Mailchimp, Salesforce, and even SMS notifications.

For those of you effected by GDPR we wrote up a short guide here to help you get pointed in the right direction for compliance: https://formtoemail.com/support/gdpr_compliant_forms.php

Feel free to post here or direct message me with any questions.

-Jesse

I think that FormToEmail is the perfect option for Webflow users. Making just a few simple changes in Webflow’s Element Settings >Form Settings and adding a couple of hidden fields (using the Embed component) will enable you to continue using your existing Webflow forms without any other changes. I have used FormToEmail for many years, before signing up to Webflow, and have been really happy with them. I am now updating all of my Webflow forms to be processed by FormToEmail. I can thoroughly recommend this guys - they are helpful, responsive and have a great site too!

Not sure if I’m the only person having this issue but during my testing, forms sent using mailchimp only seems to work if the senders email address is NOT existing within the database. Makes sense for a mailist list as you dont want duplicate email addresses but for sending website enquiries if someone sends a second message, the email just seems to disappear.
Is there a setting within mailchimp that I’m missing that allows duplicate entries coming from the same email address?

I’ve been out the mailchimp site and it looks like it’s not possible to use mailchimp for a “Contact Us” type of form where the same email address may get submitted many times…

Hi folks,

Just wanted to say thanks for all your support. We’ve been getting a flood of signups as people convert their forms over to FormToEmail.

We’ve had a lot of requests for a step by step so we created a couple videos:

Here’s the success javascript sown in the video above:

$(document).ready(function(){
function formtoemailSuccess() {
	var params = new URLSearchParams(window.location.search);
	if (params.get('success') == 1) {
		$('#wf-form-Email-Form form').hide();
		$('#wf-form-Email-Form .w-form-done').show();
		}
	}

	formtoemailSuccess();
});

I’ve been using Tectite mailscript for several years for my exported sites, works fine and it even supports email template in html .
Here is the original post I found it in How To on using your own form processor with webflow form

Totally free, I think it is odd to pay monthly fee for your mail forms. Little subscription here, little there and it builds up to be a hundred a month with all the cookie bots, amazons (since we still can’t upload any file to our own hosting on Webflow…oh well), zapiers etc…

Super grateful to @adtastic for sharing this solution, saved me quite some money and time

Usebasin.com is great. Does everything and more that Webflow forms do. And it’s only €5 per month.

I figured out a way to keep the default AJAX posting and Webflow interactions while posting to a third-party service (Basin). I posted about it in Tips & Tricks: Form submissions to third-party service with native interactions

You could probably use the same code and methodology with other 3rd-party providers, as long as they offer an AJAX submission option.

A little late to the party here. You can use our platform’s form module to connect your exported Webflow forms: https://jinglebell.io/

It was built for Webflow, so you’ll have the same functionalities and a similar interface.

Also the pricing is very competitive, at just $6/month, for unlimited forms and submissions.

Feel free to reach out if you have any questions or need help setting up a form!

If you have more than one form on a website, will the custom code still work? Or do i need to add a custom code for every form?

You can use the same code for multiple forms on multiple pages. However you won’t be able to differentiate the source or set unique settings to each form and the submissions will show in a single list. So it just depends on your requirements for the different forms.
