I have been asked by a client if I can build a website for a takeaway whereby the customer can choose the food items from a menu and send them through by email to the Takeaway.

Is this possible ? and how ?
I am using DW CS3

It is possible using a form to mail PHP script. Look at this tutorial http://www.dreamweaverclub.com/dreamweaver-php-form.php

Sory I wasn't explicit enough. I meant it will be a food menu as in Takeaway. Boxes would have to be ticked and then somehow sent to the shop by email.

Is that possible ?

you can do this using PHP and a MYSQL

You need to know how to wield these technologies of course as its not something you can just cut and paste.

Its not a difficult project really but I would say that looking at it from my perspective.

You need to start learning

I think I shall tell my client that customers are better off reading the food menu online then picking up the phone !!! Getting food orders by email in a busy Takeaway will not work in my opinion.

Thanks anyway

I've been approached with similar situations.
What we found out is that taking orders on phone works pretty well, so they ditched the idea.

You could do this if you know how as do the likes of Dominos Pizza's but if you are a local takeaway the phone will not be beaten.

You're right. Orders will get missed, customers will get pi**ed off and business will be lost! Sometimes even the phone doesn't get answered on Friday nights in my local eatery and you have to go down there.
