Overview

Telegraph is an application used to automate common tasks used with online forms. Some of the most common Telegraph tasks include:

  • Sending emails
  • Validating form data
  • Writing form data to a spreadsheet or database
  • Processing credit cards

WordPress sites usually use Gravity Forms instead of Telegraph, but should use Telegraph for special functions (e.g., credit card transactions).

How It Works

Telegraph uses HTML form code similar to PonyExpress, but with a separate XML configuration file to control form actions. Additional actions can be added to a web form by adding new directives (commands) to this configuration file.
