Help with Forms on exported site


How may I get Forms on my site working (independently) once exported and self-hosted on a VPS (Linode).

Client wants an email upon form (with custom fields – date and dropdown selection) submission.

Then, if you still have issues or need assistance, Could you please update your post with some more information so we can help you faster? Things like your read-only link in Webflow or the published site with the form helps out smile

Thanks in advance! smile


Hi @cyberdave,

What the client wants, is to have a contact form on their site. Client does not want however, the form to go through Webflow servers, in addition to self-hosting it (Linode VPS).

So what I'm asking is how may I go about with a solution to having a contact form running independently.

Preview Link (Go to Contact):


after you export your code, change the form's "action" to what is needed for the other form processing service you have chosen to use.

Sorry if that answers sounds a little vague. But, maybe I can help more if you can let us know what third-party tool you'll be using to process the form's data.


Hi @PixelGeek, from what I gather online, I plan to use php's mail() function which directly emails form data to my client. If there's a more efficient way, I'm all up for it.

Thanks in advance!


Ok. Just change the form's action attribute to point to your code that will execute the PHP mail funciton. smile
