Topic: Form issues

I have an issue with forms, a big issue and that is, the PHP part of it. I can create a form, but have no where to put it because I don't know any php. I would hate for people to fill it out and then have to use their email like Outlook or Windows Mail or iMail or something. Any suggestions? Should I go for using Wufoo? Or does that not help either.

Try this FormMail to get you up and running quickly.  Study the code and learn how they do it.

Re: Form issues

Do forms require PHP?

Or are you working in WordPress, which seems to require PHP knowledge?

Re: Form issues

Adrian,  I have a great mail form!  Unfortunately;  i had to pay for the code through hotscripts.com and because of their stated terms and conditions;  i cannot give it away!  The main reason that i'm bringing this up is because the way it works is that it has 3 files.  I had to style it with css which works great!  I think that if you use a mail form;  you should look for one like this one.  It does not give them your original e-mail address.  It gives them a form to fill out and when they submit it;  it then sends it to whatever e-mail address that you put in the code without their knowledge of that address.  It uses html;  css and php if i remember right!  It only cost me $2.00.  If you want;  i can see if i still have the purchase info and let you know how to obtain it!  I would love to give it to you;  but me being a *CHRIST*ian must obey all man made ordinances for the *LORD*s namesake.  If i can be of any help;  let me know!  I do not know much about php either; but this form is really simple to use and is commented well!  Have a great day!

Sorry Adrian!,
    I have found it and i can use it on as many websites as i wish!  It says that the license is unlimited;  so i guess from what i'm reading i can give it to you!  It does not state any terms or conditions along those lines!  I had it confused with other code or software i have!  So if you need it let me know!

Re: Form issues

If you're still looking for a form solution, have a look at: http://www.swiftmailer.org/  I don't know much php but I got my form working in no time!  I use swift for all my own stuff now and it works great.

@Dwayne Witney If you can share that link, I would love to have the code so I can use it for future references. I am learning some php at the moment, but haven't gotten into an emailing form yet.
