Fact file6.9 Processing forms

 

When the ‘submit’ button is clicked, a form is then processed in some way. This usually involves a script running on the web server. The simplest way of dealing with a form is to send it via email. Other forms may talk to a database to check a customers username and password, or store their shopping order and process it for delivery. The commonest way of processing a form is using a CGI script.

The form wizard in Serif WebPlus allows you to quickly set up a form that is emailed without having to add any scripts of your own.

Simply enter the email address that the form should be sent to, and the form will be sent to that address. However, as explained, the form will not work until the site is published on the internet.
