    Using Forms to create output to a webpage?

    Hullo!

    Maybe not the right board, but I'll give it a try.

    I need to create a Form that can send the output to be displayed in a formatted style on a webpage.

    So for example:

    Field 1
    Field 2
    Field 3
    etcetc

    Would then display either to an individual page, which the output creates, so that you could archive all the Form inputs once you had enough, by simply filing all the new pages;

    Err. I think that's it. Probably explained it really badly.

    So you go to the Form, slap in your data, and hit submit. It would then create a new webpage that it would provide the link for, and you could then go and see your output data, and others could view it too.

    Any ideas? I'm starting to confuse myself now.

    Thanks!

    -Edit-

    Actually, I've just realised something. I use Cutenews, which is an excellent little news interface for your website. Now if it was something along the lines of that, but with lots more fields, then that would be perfect.
    So I've just realised that's not simple at all.
    Or is it?

    Essentially, either the output goes to a new webpage, which is fairly straight forward, or else it does something like Cutenews does with its news articles, in that you can re-edit, categorise, etcetc.

    Thanks again!

    Well it can be a simple task if you are will educated in the art form known as "PHP/mySQL"

    PHP/mySQL is a server side language that can take information that a user inputs and send it back to the server and back to the users PC or browser and display it. You can controll how it is displayed also. Just take a look around and google php and see what you think. Or ask a few questions in the PHP forum, im sure they can help you better than here.

    Bring this over to the PHP boards. They can probably be of better help.

    Just a little correction.. "PHP/mySQL" is not a server side language, is 2 different things:

    PHP is a server side scripting language that can interconnect with MySQL databases, they can certainly be used separately.

    In this case, using both PHP and MySQL would be a good option for the OP.
