Editing EZSurvey files in HTML editors
EZSurvey can edit web surveys and forms directly, since the EZF file
format is based on HTML.
When doing so, EZSurvey will preserve all formatting and text outside of the
<FORM> section of the HTML file. Everything within the survey form section
will be replaced by the changes you make in EZSurvey.
In order to run survey forms on your web server, you need to have directory permissions
set correctly. Usually, web servers are set up this way by default. Your scripts
directory should have only Execute Scripts permission. This will ensure the
maximum security of your web site.
To make a form without a Submit button (like the one on the main Raosoft page), you need to edit the HTML file that is generated by EZSurvey. Each multiple-choice response in the HTML file gets an <INPUT> tag. On the last question, add the F.submit() command to the onClick entry so that the HTML code looks like this:
Returning responses through email
cannot place scripts on your web server, you may check the Return responses via
email option when you generate the web page. Try the form out with a few
different computers before you ask people to answer your survey. Beware: not all
web browsers can submit survey forms via email.
