    Form Page

    MichaelCo Level 1
      I have designed a form asking for usual stuff like name,address etc.
      How do I attach a CGI script to the form - is it some kind of formula - does my form page go in to the CGI Bin folder ?
      All of this is new to me so I am probably missing something very simple -
      I think that making the form page is very easy but getting it to actually work is giving me headaches

          Michael, when I first began to use Dreamweaver, forms were my biggest nightmare!! I would always design it and trick the host tech people into attaching the CGI stuff.

          There are some good Tutorials that can help. Most web Host companies supply a "how-to" on their FAQ's page. Each host is slightly different in terms of what they require, but the differences are great enough to hinder in any way.

          Or, you could always resort to tricking the tech-people ... On second thought, just learn it - you'll benefit in the long run

            you can also get rid of it by using a great service at www.Mycontactform.com it is totally free...

            however, if you want to develop your own script.. try searching some tutorials on gogle.... good luck ! By the way... there is a good one at: www.kirupa.com

            Cheers webmate...
