Maybe I'm missing something here, but I just wasted about a 1/2 hour publishing my form from my local development to the live site.
I set up the form locally and had styled it with custom css based on id's and class's that included "1_" (which references the forms id #- which I didn't know). I wanted to put the form on the live site, so I exported the form XML and then imported it onto the live site. I then deleted the previous form and realized that I needed to reset the short tag on the page where the new form will be displayed, because the form now had an id = 2. I updated the short tag and went to view the form in action on the site. A lot of my css additions had disappeared and unbeknownst to me the id's and classes had changed their # prefix to "_2". In the end, I ended up exporting the local tables from PHP myadmin and overwriting what was on the live sites database. I looked into changing the id's of the forms in phpmyadmin, but couldn't figure it out.
My point here is that there must be a better way to do this, that I don't know about. Can anybody lend me a hand?
