Hey jecia!

You can either use php or cgi to create your forms. CGI might be easier. PHP you'll have to work around a database and MSQL/CSV data logging etc.

Here's one I found for use with cgi scripts:


If you would like to go into php and databases, here are some form builders for that (I wasn't able to find any FREE form builders, so you'll probably have to buy it and then download the script. There are some free demos, I'm not sure exactly how far in depth they go though):




One of the advantages though of php scripts is that you won't have to worry about bots spamming your form.

If you need any help, let me know. :thumbsup:

Good luck!

As far a php, a database would be dependent on if you need to store/save the data from the form; you can also simply email the submitted data if you want without saving in a database.

I suppose it would be prudent to see exactly what functionality to your website that you wish a form to provide. There are a ton of different ways to manipulate client data once it gets back to the server, and HTML does all of the work to get the form data back to the server. There are other means besides Php for accomplishing that particular task.

A web form is pretty trivial to create. Just using basic HTML one can create a functional form; perhaps not very pretty, but functional.

Thank you for suggestions. So far I found freedback and this free <a href="http://www.emailmeform.com">html form</a> builder which unlike freedback does not show any advertising in the free plan! ;-) :thumbsup:
