    Default Contact widgets/forms that are free for use with Xara Web Designer Premium 16?

    I am using Web Designer 16. The widgets this software offer are really good, but where are the Contact Us forms or widgets for a Contact Page? I have seen posts stating there are several sites offering widgets for a contact form. Is there a listing of a site offering free widgets that work with Web Designer 16? I have used other software and written codes in PHP in the past - but this should be something that is offered in Web Designer Premium - if you purchase the full version in my opinion. I am disappointed in what is offered with forms in this software.

    Also: Is Web Designer phasing out? Does anyone know if it will be updated or retired in the next build.

    Dear "generate", it is not clear if you have the Premium version or not. My bad, it is in the Thread Title!

    In Premium, I can access Form Widgets through the Online Content Catalogue > Components > Print & Web Components > Forms.

    Xara sites are static and stateless. They can run from local storage. They have no concept of server code.
    Contact forms can be written in PHP and added to Placeholders.

    XaraTemplates.com includes some very effective Contact Forms that are close to plug 'n' play.

    Web Designer is not being phased out. Personally, WD16 (basic) should be dropped as it is so cut down that it is next to unusable.

    Acorn - My currently active Xara software: XDPX (current, v15, v12 & 11 (64-bit)), unserviced XWD Premium 15 & 12, XPGD10, X3D7; lots of licences back through time (to CC's Artworks). If your Post identifies a Xara software fault, please raise it directly with Magix --> support2.magix.com.

    Take a look at jotform.com

    You can setup a free account for 5 forms and upto 100 submissions per month. The software is very easy to use, along with being quite robust, and has Xara listed as an option to generate the code for your site. You simply create a placeholder and copy and paste the code from jotform. One of the companies I work with has over 80 Xara sites using JotForms. We researched about half a dozen options before selecting JotForms.

    The forms work just fine with multiple Xara variants. I do modilfy the codes slightly for the different size variants. And when I say modify I mean post the code in the placeholder and simply change the size numbers for height and width.

    Be happy to assist you if you need more help.

    Also check out Cognito forms. To my mind, much more flexible that jotforms.
