    Creating a contact form

    You probably get this a lot.

    But how do I create a contact form that stays entirely on my site, and doesn't open up an email client?

    I just want it so they can fill it all in, and they're done

    You use php's mail function. There is a lot of form processing scripts out there. If you want to make your own you can use phpmailer help which makes it easier to create the processing part.

    http://phpmailer.worxware.com/

    They also have a form to email script that takes whatever you send it and sends it to the email address of your choice. Kind of like formmail.

    You will need to know some php to implement these. There are other services but they have ads everywhere.

    I've attached a PHP Contact form I use whenever I need one. I've found it to be simple but effective, and easy to install. You can style it and what not
