jhwjhw, Apr 28, 7:32am
Im after a Inquiry box, that sends the contents to a recipient when Send isclicked.

As per the bottom of this website... php? entit

Any ideas how/where I can learn this skill.

Generally, by copying and pasting/borrowing the code from others. Perhaps try googling for a php contact form and go from there - there's plenty of community resources around that you can use.

Assuming of course that your web server supports php. Is this for a new website or for adding to an existing one?

Your after a contact form script, there are a ton of them already made on the net, google is your friend.

This should do the trick

You will just need to sign up, create your free form, add where you would like form to be send (e. g your email address), then it will produce a code for you to copy, then just paste it into the html code in your dreamweaver site and it will create a form on yoursite. When the data has been entered and they push send it will forward the info onto the email address to specified in the code

look into mysql and php combined. mysql is the database end and php is thepage coding end.

Thats a lot of unnecessary steps when you can do it all in a script and get the same result.

Don't need mysql for a contact form.

I have a program that creates PHP forms but there are a lot of free scripts available that you can configure and cut and paste into existing code.

Its 2 steps, create a form, upload it to website. Not everyone has the script code just lurking on their computer

Are you just wanting name e-mail phone number message? No indeph questions etc

jhwjhw, Apr 29, 5:35am
Yes, all Im after is what was at the bottom of the initial weblink, maybe a phone number as well.

So, Im after, Name, address, phone, details and an email link to send all inquiries.

I use Frontpage alot, I was hoping I could just Paste the script into the code and go from there.

Ask your webhost, they should be able to give you access to a shared formmail script, or show you how to set that up for you, its really basic stuff.

Maybe it's too late but. .

You need to use: txt

save this file as send_form_email. php

then get the html from: txt

edit the lines in send_form_email. php to the email.
add/remove php code as per the script for more/less fields.

The last few lines in send_form_email. php can be changed to include html instead of the thanks message. Must start with <html> etc
