Hi, i recently created a website and im wondering if anybody knows how to create a form for my website, where in which people can sign up for a charity walk, and needs to answer a range of questions which we need. I also would like the form to be able to send the submitted forms to a certain e-mail address.

Thanks in advance

Joe

HTML is the only way you are going to be able to include a form in an HTML page... and that is just the easy part. Emailing a form from just a web page is a little more difficult.

Like groovicus said, HTML is the only option. But HTML is actually a very easy language to learn (but it's true that forms are possibly the most complicated aspect of HTML)


Try visiting this tutorial. It is pretty good and offers a step by step approach to making a form that will be e-mailed to you using the client computer's e-mail program (i.e. Outlook Express). But, if the user doesn't have an e-mail program configured. You'd be out of luck.


Many companies offer free form submission services to their members. Many eons ago, I used Bravenet.com's free form submission service. They were quite good for the price. They have a simple Form Builder that you can use to create simple forms without having to know any HTML. They (the forms) were not that super and when I was using it they pasted an ad on my form. I circumvened thid by designing my own form and using their script to handle the form. This wan't a violation of their TOS back then, but you should check that out before doing so. In any case, you should put a "Form Submission Provided By Bravenet.com" notice on the form, if they don't.

I am having a similiar problem. I have created the forms, but I am not sure how to send them directly from my webpage. The company that hosts my website actually has a file that already handles my emails called process.php, and I checked just to make sure. That file is setup to send where I want, I am just not sure of the code I should use to post to that file. I have a couple of things on the form.
1. Name
2. Address
3. City
4. e-Mail
5. Message

I need those to send to my email account. What is the code I should use to do this. Thanks so much for the help.
