If you are using my Dreamweaver (older than Dreamweaver 8) and RoboHelp books, you have probably noticed the forms you learn to create during the book no longer post when you test them. Sadly, you receive the "Page Cannot Be Displayed" error, even if you typed everything perfectly.
The instructions in the book, while correct, link to a CGI script on our server. The script has worked for years, and still does. It sends the form results back to you in the form of an e-mail.
But for security reasons, many Internet hosts, including ours, now prohibit the use of CGI scripts for a page unless the page is on the same server as the script. Since the form you created is not posted on our server, and therefore could present a security risk, you will be unable to properly test the form.
The Workaround: Use the following link in the Action area of the Properties panel:
While your form will not process any data, you will no longer receive the error message.
