Hi

I Have created my fist form in DW and im really proud of it, however. Im not really happy with the clumsy way the mailto: action works as this is a really awfull way to submit the form.

so my question is what are the alternatives,(and how would a noob do it) my form is just a collection of data such as email address, radio button results and a bit of text.

Thanks for your help as always

you need a mail script written in a scripting language

php, asp, jsp or perl

you have to have a host that supports these before you can use them and you will pay a little extra for asp. Chances are a host will have some perl email scripts already available to its customers

If you are looking for a script, go to the tutorials here http://www.dreamweaverclub.com/dreamweaver-php-form.php on the DW Club and see the tut on "Using Dreamweaver and PHP to send for results in an e-mail". You just need to make sure you host supports PHP
