    On line Form

    I set up my first website a couple of years ago and at that time asked quite a few questions here and always got great answers.

    Now, having done no websites in the meantime have another idea which I want to try.

    I need an online form, to capture
    Name
    Address line 1, 2, 3 and maybe 4.

    email address
    message

    Previously I managed to find a free online html code / php script which worked great, but that was only for name, email and message.

    Now I need more information and I am again looking for help, if this is possible.

    I have read a bit about php, but there is no way in hell that I would be able to write my own program.

    Has anybody got any ideas please.

    Of course, if I really had to, I could use my existing form and simply ask readers to type everything in the message box ... but that would probably look a little amateurish.

    thank you

    Formmail from tectite should do everything you need.

    Do you want the information sent to your email box, or where to?

    Many thanks for that, I'll take a look at it

    I assume to an email, but where else can it go to ?

    I want to take information from visitors to a website, then upload only a small amount of it to another part of my site. I will keep the rest of their data, to use later.

    Is there a better alternative to an email for the data. I don't know anything about databases etc, so anything involving MySQL or whatever it is called, is out of the question.
