Any recommendations on sites or places that offer PHP forms either in a template format where I would just change the customized values to what I need or in a form building software type of solution? I want it to be customized enough where I can make the form fields be close together, so it looks like a very short and easy form. But doesn't have to be super customized. Any solutions out there for that? Thanks.

Whew! That's alot to ask. Thing is, there are so many different criteria, depending on the app, that an 'out of the box' solution is nearly impossible.

Building the form is one thing. Checking the data after submittal is crucial and really cannot be 'canned'.

If you're talking about form-to-mail type scripts, then you can find many but I haven't seen anything that will build custom forms. I wish!

Thanks. Wishful thinking I guess. I can settle for the generic form builders I guess. Since learning how to script this stuff myself would take more time then I have right now. Too bad.

There are some form-generation classes that people offer, but they still probably require more coding than you're looking to do.

Do a google search on "php form class" and you'll find several, but they will require that you write code like

$mail_form .= $form->text("from_mail", "", "From:");

or something like that
