We can definitely help you get your form working! Our form handling will work automatically for valid html forms but there are a few things you need so our form-handling can find your form. Here’s a few common things to check for:

  1. You form tag has a netlify (or data-netlify=true in javascript frameworks) attribute, mentioned here.
  2. You have a “name” atribute for your form tag to let our system identify it as a unique form. Also mentioned here.
  3. You have a “name” attribute with a unique value for each form field in your form. Something like <input name="email" ...> or <textarea name="message" ...> is what you need, so we are sent each of your form fields from the browser. Make sure you don’t have two of the same field-name on a single form; this will make one field override the other in unexpected way.

Just make sure you have those things in your standards-compliant html form and you should find your form in your dashboard! There’s some more useful information and a good example here. Let us know how it goes in a comment below!
