    I made a form in Dreamweaver but it won't display properly in WordPress. I'm pasting it in the page html. I have a css for the form. Do you think I will need to put all the form elements in DIVs to work in WP?

    Is this for a page or a post?

    Ok I figured out how to style the form.. I have to define styles for form elements in my theme's stylesheet. But I'm concerned if sending information via the form will work.

    Using dreamweaver on WordPress is like using a jackhammer to fine tune a stereo. Just use one of the many fine plugins for this purpose or create your own from scratch using available classes for this purpose.

    Thanks Johnson. I was using cforms but I experienced many errors with it. I'm using a very long form and I suppose that's why. I manage to create a form in dreamweaver with a custom css and I'm using it on a non-wordpress page in my server but wordpress interferes when I submit the form. It's supposed to pick up my form's .php file but instead it loads a wordpress page not found. Does anyone know how to solve that?

    I have a question.... if I create a simple form with the submit to go to a database that a programmer is making, (she will provide the link) will this work on a page?

    I don't want to mess with plugins.
