The Editable Form Builder Widget is a Game-changer, enabling TabSite users to build forms for specific needs and uses, giving you the freedom you need to customize fields and field names, and to edit at any time.  


When the Editable Form Widget is dragged to the tab work area, the setup box opens to enable users to easily create and/or edit their form. Simply add an e-mail address that forms are supposed to go to upon submission, then enter a message for users to see after submission of the form, or enter a URL for the user to be redirected to after submission (via URL Redirect tab shown below).

Click the box (shown above) to edit the Field Name for each field in the Form Builder.  Use the arrows to move the fields up or down in order and click the "+Add Field" link to add a new field to your form.


You can also customize the text on your "submit" button to another word or another language.  You control what your submit button says! 


You can manipulate the appearance of the Content Editor widget by clicking on the Container Properties tab in the upper right-hand corner. 

From here you can change the default font color, link color, heading color, and background color. Please be sure to uncheck the Transparent box if you choose to use a background color.

Another option available in the Container Properties is adding a Background image. To do so, check the box next to Use Background Image and drag the image that you want to use to the Drag To Upload area. There are options to set the Horizontal and Vertical positioning, along with the ability to have the image repeat.


 EDITING A PREVIOUSLY CREATED CONTENT WIDGET: To edit the content that you have previously added to your TabSite, right click on your Content, and click on edit. This will bring up your editor again.  

You can also go to the "Layers" tab in the TabSite Manager below "Widgets" and click the Edit link next to the Content Widget you want to edit.





After your inputs have been made, clicking "Accept" creates the form on your tab.
