    I'd like to pay for a script please

    Hi, I am looking for a script to be created and I'm more than happy to pay for it. The script is to allow site visitors to get an instant quote for glass splashbacks, similar to the system on tradesplashbacks.co.uk, but a LOT simpler.
    The visitor would choose a colour from a colour chart, choose the glass type (2 options), insert the width and length and then a quote would be generated. The calculation would be fairly simple, based on which of the 2 types of glass they choose and width x length.
    The code has to be embeddable in a website created using websiteliberty.com (I'm sure you're all way to advanced for a wysiwyg website maker, but please don't give me any flack!!). The code would embedded into an html snippet, which seems to cope with most codes absolutely fine.
    Thanks a million!

    Anybody want to take this on? A similar (and simpler) quotation system can be seen at http://www.showlitewindows.com/quote...ry=splashbacks

    Thanks in advance. Any questions, please don't hesitate to ask

    What server side language does your site hosting allow? The example you provided uses ASP.

    Only javascript I think. I've had a reply from elsewhere and it seems that although the calculator would be relatively easy, a process whereby the visitor's details would be collected before the quote is given may not be possible using the web builder....

    They were correct, html and javascript are great for webpages but not for what you are trying to do. You need at a minimum php which they do have free hosted websites that do have php where you could do this.

    What colour chart are you using? What are you expecting from that? Hex code or specific choice or ...?

    What two glass types and how does the choice affect the quote?

    How does width x length figure into the quote?

    You said "Thanks a million!" but I expect to be able to do it for a lot less than that.
