There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes. Thanks a lot to the people who helped in all these years, especially Larry and of course: Paul. Take care and stay healthy -- Flynn, Atahualpa developer, Sep 2021

adding form info, buttons or drop down lists in page?

hello, the theme is great. i am messing around with it. i am trying to add some form info and some buttons in a page. what i am doing is making a page so someone can check a button and add some text and then submit to an email adress.

i see that you can do it from looking on the test site. but i dont know how to add them to a page.?

thank you for any help.

maybe i should rephrase that. i see in the apearance area that you can setup forms and stuff like that. do i need to know programmering to insert a form or radio buttons?

You can insert them manually but usually you'd use a form plugin for that because that's easier. For instance

Contact Form 7

Cforms II

Here's a selection of more form plugins

To install a plugin, see the instructions in a README.txt file or something similar inside the plugin files that you downloaded. Usually you'd upload either a single file xxxxxx.php or a while directory /xxxxxxx/ to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory on your web hosting account, then activate that plugin at Site Admin -> Plugins

Atahualpa Theme Options -> Forms is just for (visually) styling form elements, not for creating forms. A plugin might have it's own styling setting on its own settings page.

You can use a CC as well after you clicked the Donate button. There should be link at the bottom ("Don't have a paypal account? Use you credit card or bank account...")Thank you
