Hello there folks,

Total newbie, just taught myself DW CS3 over the last couple of months and now put a site together which is almost finished.

The last main thing I want to be able to achieve is putting together a PHP script that speaks to my web form, but I know 0% PHP... great huh? :wink:

So, just looking for a bit of advice about where to start in terms of setting it up. Is it best to:

Source a pre-made script and edit it to suit my needs (links?)
Are there any scripts built into DW?
Can anyone post a common script that's real easy to use?

My form consists of:

Firstname (text field)
Lastname (text field)
Email (text field)
Message (text field)
Submit button

I've checked and my Unix server host supports all requirements.

All advice greatly appreciated...


Steve

there are plenty of pre made scripts that will work,
there is one including tutorial on this forum (see tutorials)
nothing in DW im afraid but there is some validation functions
