How To Manually Update Standard Forms

Requested by Winlink users and supported by the Winlink Development Team, these HTML form template files are used to send formatted documents and messages between users of Winlink Express. The small .xml data file (form content) that is sent, can be opened and rendered as a received HTML form with Express. Once displayed they can be copied, saved, printed, or sent on in their normal fully-rendered size to non-Express recipients. [The interactive forms HTML process from sender to receiver only occurs within Winlink Express].

Content is also sent as plain text within the body of the message, formatted as best as possible, to allow viewing by anyone without the form template. A non-Express user such as a normal email recipient, can read the information. The attached .xml file is ignored and need not be opened. These templates are as close as possible to original forms. Some differences or additions may be seen to accommodate radio delivery and work within the parent software Winlink Express. While HTML has a set of standards, not all browsers display the form input boxes exactly the same way. Adjust your browser screen size or text size if any of the fields appear wrong.

Winlink Express templates are designed to work from Express to Express without internet for radio delivery.

All code is open-source. You can modify forms locally, but if you do so, they may not be compatible with Standard Template release versions of HTML templates. If you wish to have new forms added to the official library or feel your modifications should be published and supported, please submit them to me. I welcome questions/suggestions and will respond as best I can.
