caspio capabilities

Question

Is Weebly the only web platform that can handle caspio forms other than WordPress? I am finding that Caspio is not compatible with Wix, GoDaddy, Google or any other web page server I can find. 

I am able to post a single page, but cannot pass parameters on anything but Weebly.

Also, am I correct that there is no phone number formatting within Caspio? Such as (999) 999-9999 ? Seems odd. Is this industry standard since foreign phone numbers can have a variable number of digits?

Thanks for the clarification.

The others are putting the embedded websites in an iframe container, this prevents the forms from passing the parameters. You can deploy it as iframe, however, it will act independently from the webpage, it will redirect on the iframe only and not the page. Weebly and WordPress does not use these iframe container, I believe Weebly CMS does, but Weebly Website Builder doesn't, I'm not sure.

 

For the Phone Formatting, Caspio's form are extremely simple, but, I guess this is a good feature to do since there are a lot of sources that has the phone formatting for each country anyway. You can create one yourself, tho, through Virtual Fields, your users would just have to input their numbers part by part, and then you can append everything, add the special characters, etc.,  on the actual field (set it to Calculated Value) OR use JavaScript

Hi, just to add in the previous comments above, phone formatting is also possible using calculated fields, calculated values or even in Formula fields.  You may use this formula:

CASE WHEN
[@field:Phone_Number] != ' '
THEN
'(' + SUBSTRING([@field:Phone_Number], 1, 3) + ') ' + ' ' + SUBSTRING([@field:Phone_Number], 4, 3) + '-' + SUBSTRING([@field:Phone_Number], 7, 4)
ELSE
[@field:Phone_Number]
END

Hi, if you are still in the process of building your application, I suggest checking this presentation from Caspio regarding the best practices in establishing your table. It was also mentioned in the presentation that numeric values that are never used as numbers such as phone number, social security number, zip code, etc. should always use text (255). You may check the article through this link:
