How do I get javascript to display and save the information entered on my form.
I have very little knowledge about this but what I want to have on my site is to get the information entered on my form to be displayed public(that is right away) after clicking the submit button.

Do you have an access to a server-side language (asp, php, jsp, etc)? This is done better in server-side. But if you don't have one, you can also use javascript.

Using GET as form method (<form method="get" action="page2.htm">), the form data are appended in the querystring. You can use this script (http://www.codingforums.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=25786) to parse the querystring in the next page. If you don't want this method, there are other ways (http://www.webxpertz.net/faqs/jsfaq/passvars.php) of doing it.
