Using HTML Form tags


Can you add HTML form tags to a page within DNN? 


DNN does not process the HTML correctly, as the form will not be displayed. 

Root Cause

HTML doesn't allow nested forms and every DNN page has already a <form> by default, causing any child <form> not to be displayed.

Note: DNN is built on top of a .NET Framework that uses web forms provoking the behavior mentioned above.


If you need to gather information in a form we would suggest using the DNN forms or javascript/AJAX to send the information from the page with an onclick event.
