HTML5 Netlify form 'page not found'


I’m struggling to identify the issue i’m having with getting Netlify forms to work on my site. I’ve followed the FAQs page around making sure unique names are used for each field. But i’m still having issue with a ‘page not found’ page when submitting the email sign up and contact forms.

Not sure if i’m missing anything here, really value help here.



Hiya, sorry you are having trouble getting your forms to work.

This Support Guide is the first port of call to debug any forms issues. There are also many other Support Guides for forms - you can find them here: #Netlify-support:support-guides

We also recommend trying to search the forums or look at topics tagged Netlify forms if you haven’t already - it’s likely your question was already asked by someone else!

If you are still having problems, please provide more information such as what you have already tried, and a link to your live form. :slight_smile:

There are no Nelify attributes on the form:


The FAQ page covers this.

That’s interesting, i didn’t look to see what had been stripped out. This is my code before uploading to Netlify

Okay, my bad, I didn’t see the entire code. Netlify strips the Netlify attributes and adds the hidden input with form name during processing. Generally this tag gets inserted right after the opening form tag and since yours didn’t have that, I assumed your form is not getting processed at all. But now that I see, you do have that hidden input at the end of the form and it seems like you’re manually adding it. This is a simple HTML5 website without any frameworks, or anything, am I right? If yes, you don’t really need the hidden input. Netlify will add that itself. Also, I’m assuming the cause is the difference in case between form name and the hidden input name. Just to be safe, try removing the hidden input for now.


Yes, there is no framework used. Your suggestions worked perfectly! thank you for your help.
