To configure any form with Form Processor Pro, you only need to do four easy things:

  1. Point your form to FPP and give your form a name. You should point the action attribute of your form to the FPP directory and give your form a unique name by inserting a hidden field in the form's HTML just after form tag.
  2. Handle with error messages. Put the <!-- FPP_ERROR --> tag in your form's page in place where you'd like to display error messages.
  3. Create the required Email, HTML and/or Log templates. Use {# and #} brackets and hash signs to include any variable (field content) in the template. If you have a text field with name="email" then you can use this variable in any template by putting it in brackets like this: {#email#}. This will be changed to the submitter's entered value after processing.
  4. Edit simple config file with required configurations. Set actions to perform, validation rules etc. All available actions, validations and modifiers can be found in this manual.

In this example we have a domain: and Form Processor Pro installed in the “fpp” public folder under the www root. In other words, Form Processor Pro can be accessed through:
