Actually, I believe this is pretty simple and straightforward. However, sometimes the simple things are buried in places you wouldn't expect them.

This link might help, although I know the Webform module has gone through many upgrades since then:


Typically I don't see functionality being taken out of a module, so I'm going to (dangerously) assume that it's still possible to do this.

Let me know if that doesn't work, and I'll drop into one of my dev sites and try it out for you.

Good luck!

Thanks for your reply, but i can't get the screen where i have to chose a fieldset name. There is no advanced settings for form elements...

It seems (and I'm using webform 3.9 for Drupal 6) that they made it easier to use. I'd never needed to use a fieldset in a Webform, and it's good to know you can now :)

The process is like this:

- go to your webform components (in my case it's node/54/webform/components, but it's basically the place where you would create fields)
- create a new field, and pull down the menu to "fieldset" to create the new fieldset, name it, save, etc.
- drag the fields you want in the fieldset to the right slightly and down to the new fieldset...the fields should be indented below the fieldset name (you'll need Javascript on to do this...if you don't have the ability to drag by the little cross symbols then that's a different story)
- save

After you do that you should have a fieldset containing the fields you "dragged into" the fieldset. Voila!

Let me know if that's not working for you and take a screenshot of your webform components page (if you can) and attach it so I can see what we're working with.

Otherwise, hopefully that'll do it for you. :)
