Hi everybody. I am new to this forum and have been very impressed with everybodies helpfullness.

I have been reading over most of the posts and have learnt so much. I just have one question.

I have built a new site and would like to add a form function so that people can contact me and subscribe to my e-newsletter. Can someone please explain to me how you can make a form that all the results are emailed to you?

Thanks in advance for all your help

Jared

Welcome to WebmasterWorld jaredgravatt.

I'm not a DW user so I can't give you specifics there. However, a basic form will need to be processed by something in order to send you the information. A popular method is to have the results e-mailed to you. A good way to start looking for what you need would be a script repository like hotscripts.com where you can find ready-made scripts, often for free. Look for "form processing scripts" or "e-mail form scripts". Something along those lines should get you headed in the right direction.

Your host may even have one or more of these scripts available already for you. In fact, they may have ready-to-use form examples you can use.

I've kinda forgotten how to build a form in MX, but I do remember that I used to do e-mail forms easily. Have a look at the help in the package, you should be able to figure it out from there. These days I use php. Google for formtoemail and you'll find an easy php script for this.
