Greetings: I've recently taken over responsibility for managing the following website:

Home Page

Note the "site visitor email address collector" found under the header "Free Tips, Discounts & Promos". Presumably, site visitors can enter their email address in order to receive the site newsletter. Additionally on the same page, see the submission form under the header: "No Job Too Small... Get Your Free Estimate Today!". Again, the site visitor is encouraged to submit first name, last name, email address & phone number, and a brief description of needed work vis a vis the form.

Can someone identify the specific code (in its entirety) which governs this site visitor interaction? Essentially, my goal is to "update" or otherwise "swap out" the email address currently associated with these 2 site visitor interaction opportunities (submission forms) so that contact details provided by site visitors (specifically those who choose to provide contact details) are routed properly to an email address of my choosing.

There are a few more submission forms found on other related site pages. One can be found here: 7 Things You Must Know Before Hiring a Painter

And another here: 5 Suggestions To Choose Paint Colors

My goal with posting this thread is to:

1) better understand what specific script(s), even if those scripts are remotely-hosted), is being invoked when a site visitor chooses to submit contact details through one or all of the above site interactions &
2) understand exactly (step by step) what process or code edits/modifications are needed to ensure site visitor-provided contact details are routed to an email address of my choosing.

Thanks in advance --

Remotely hosted seems to be spot on. Look at the action attribute in respective form tag. For the "Free Tips, Discounts & Promos" form the script is located at https://chesapeakepainting.us2.list-manage....p;id=3c04e1ef5b . list-manage.com is a domain used by Mailchimp so I'd say you have an account with them. And there's where you can change the email address.

Pandy: Apologies for my delayed reply. I very much appreciate your point out of the mailchimp-related attribute. I'll check into that and revert, if needed. Again, danke...

Thanks for your direction regarding the embedded submission form titled: "Free Tips, Discount and Promos" found in my original post, and here: Abacus Custom Painting Home, I was able to correct the submission/account email address associated with that working form, thereby regaining control over email addresses submitted via that form.

If you could, take a look a bit further down that same page. There is another submission form titled: "No Job Too Small... Get Your Free Estimate Today!"

Looking at source code I believe to be related to that form, beginning with line 297 in the attached "view source", I'm unable to identify which form technology was used to create the form.

My objective is to:

1) identify all website source code responsible for end to end form operation(s), and,
2) edit/modify existing website form source code in order to capture all data entered into this form by a given site visitor

Would you mind taking a look and sharing your thoughts/re-direct(s)?

I'm sorry, but I don't understand what you want to do. Can you rephrase?
