A new community center in my area wishes to have a Web Site wherby persons can get on and order lunch for the next day at the Comm Center. My question I can make up the web page OK- but what would I need for these (hungry people ) to be able to sign up for the next day lunch. All of this keeping in mind that they don't wish to pay for it and if they did-- very little $. Is there a small BB program that I could get and link it to the site--Thanks, I realize they could E-Mail-that would get complex I think. :flowers: :thumbsup:

Hi EdBee,

For personal security purposes, they are safer using e-mail, unless you have a password controlled BB that precludes the web crawlers, etc.

Posting on a board opens up all manner of security threats for the participants. At the least people should only reply via a secure e-mail link.

regards,
~Koan

Thanks Koan--

How about, if the participants had a pre selected code word or number they just entered in on a list on the page. And then make the listing not available to anyone but the owner of the page? How would this work? Possible? thanks for your input.
I would want the web page open to all-but the part where they could sign up under control. :flowers: :thumbsup:

Well, you could run it off a database. Person signs in, PHP page calles to the database for member information and also dispalys today's menu. Text input box in available for them to enter their selections or you could put radio buttons next to the menu items.

They make their selections and then hit submit and the data is stored to the database.

When the admin logs in, The PHP page shows all of today's menu selections that have been stored in the database. That should be fairly secure.
