I want to add a contact form to my website instead of displaying an email on there which will get picked up by the spam bots.

Can anyone recommend a contact form builder that generates the code for you?

If you can build the code for the form yourself there are solutions that will generate the required PHP code. I use one from tools4php (Google it).

Yeah - I think I could build the actual structure of the form myself in Dreamweaver - is that what you are saying?

Yes, do the form in HTML then just follow the instructions on the package and it does the rest.

I use phpformgenerator by sourceforge. Just google it for the web address.

I have been very happy with the security of the PHP Ultimate Form Mail script (not to be confused with the old Perl "FormMail" form handler).

If you have a cut price hosting package that doesn't support php then check with your provider to see if they give you a form processor, I know that a lot do. IIRC it is notmally called formmail.pl. My ISP does for people who use their free, HTML only, hosting but the information is well hidden in the small print.

The other thing to watch is if there are restrictions on the destination address. My hosting company will not let me use an address other than a mailbox on my domain. I can't route an email direct to a Hotmail or Gmail account for example.
