Hi Y'all,
I've been thinking of this for months now: I've got a website set-up and hosted but I need to know what methods are available for getting the results of the online forms. A list of the methods would be available together with highlights on the methods that would not require 'much' programming. Thanks in anticipation.

The form element in an HTML page is all one needs to send the results of a form to the server. There needs to be some sort of a program on the server to get the results though. Then you will need to do something with the results, I suppose. I don't know what you want to do, or what you consider not 'much' programming. The easiest way would be to email the contents of the form. There are a bunch of threads on how to do this, so I am not going to take the time to explain them again. Just use the search feature for "email forms".

it also depends on what server you are running and whether it has php or asp etc... maybe give a little more information?

There are loads of results on google for "contact form for website" here's a link http://www.google.com.au/search?hl=en&...orm+for+website

There's no place like 127.0.0.1

@Groovicus: Thanks. I'd use the feature and see what I can come up with. @KamakaZ: Well, this new form is for the server I talked about in my other thread. It's NOT going to be connected to the internet and so, eMailing the form results is not ideal for me. Maybe having the results appended to a certain page each time a user hits the submit button would be ideal for me, dont know exactly how to do this (especially as I am not familiar with CGI). I do not need the server or any other service to process the results, it's basically gonna be for feedback purposes so something simple will do.
Thanks Groovicus and KamakaZ, you guys have been good to me!!!

Are you familiar with PHP, or ASP, or Java? Do you have any programming experience at all?

Programming experience??? NO, working on that (first things first). But I believe they should be ready-made scripts (GCI or whatever) out there I could manipulate to allow my form results to be written to a page; that's what I'm looking for at the moment.

Hi Groovicus,
I've bene through the documentation in the link you provided. Interesting combination of HTML and PHP you've got there; BUT I haven't figured out how this can help me set-up a machinery where users fill my intranet form and the results get appended to a particular page each time. Perharps I'm not seeing something you are, would appreciate clarification on this, thanks!

Sorry Groovicus, but i'm also a little lost...

You could look at this: http://woork.blogspot.com/2009/05/how-to-i...l-facebook.html

I used it once before to imitate the "wall" on "facebook"... Works rather well, had a few problems, but once ironed out, worked a treat!

The thread shows how to send form data to a server, and then display the data in a new web page. The fact that it is a password and user name combination is irrelevant. It is form data.
