View Full Version : very simple instant quote script

04-16-2007, 04:37 PM

i have no idea how to script just not in my jeans :-( so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Something like this http://www.click2translate.com/quote/quick_quote.asp

choose high, medium, low - High adds 20% medium adds 10% low 0%
input a number
select a currency, dollars, pounds, RMB
choose a language
choose another language
click go

I have seen plenty of scripts but nothing this simple

Can anyone help me..I guess it would be a nice simple script to make.

Thanks in advance

that's it

I think you meant genes not jeans.

and what are the percentages? 20% / 10% of what?

Sorry i am chinese my english is soso

The 20% and 10% are added to amount of quote

(input a number)number of words x currency + 10 or 20%

I hope this is OK

If you make the HTML form, I could write the PHP code for you (as I am sure some others would as well).

you can just post it on here.. but make sure to wrap it in [c.ode] [/c.ode] tags without the periods.

also, does your server support php? because it would be a shame if we wrote the script and you didn't have supprt for it

this is a very simple form - sorry i am not good and check boxes not work properly - please have a look for me you can only check one and not the other line.

check document type
check delivery time
input number of words
select currency
choose source and target languages
click get quote

number of words x curency selected (amount coded i.e. 1 word = 0.10 dollars)
total has this added check delivery time - normal (0%) express (20%)
total has this added check document type - general (0%) others (20%)

output total of quote
details - quote amount
number of words
delivery time
document type

I hope this is ok and clear to understand

many thankyou
