Hey all, I'm hoping you can help me find a script to use on my site.

My site has information articles and at the bottom I want to add a section that simply asks Was this page helpful? with two buttons, yes and no.

Ideally I want the responses to be entered into a text file or database for later review. Even better would be if the script would pop up a box that asks how could we improve on the page if the person answers no.

I don't think I'm up to the task of writing such a script from scratch, my skills are a bit below that. So I'm hoping someone can give me a suggestion on where to look for such a script.

The browser side should be done in ajax (Don't worry, it's just some javascript). This is because you want interaction of a page with the user without reloading the page itself.

The server side -which could be done in php- then becomes relatively simple: you just get the data, validate it and dump it in a database/flat file and answer success back to the ajax on the client to let it know it's done it's part.
