    Default Forms

    I know how to put in a form, but I don't know how to make the submitted [text] go to somewhere specific. eg. my e-mail address, or in another page, like a guestbook.

    HTML Code:
    <form method="post" action="mailto:youremail@whatever.com">
    That is for submitting it towards your e-mail.

    To make a guestbook, follow this here link to show you the basics.

    Note that the post above requires the client to have a proper mail program set up to handle mailto links.

    Hope this helps

    Ideally you'll want to use a server side form submission script, instead of relying on JavaScript, as the later is unreliable, and very limited in what can be submitted. Check out some of the scripts listed here: http://cgi.resourceindex.com/Program...rm_Processing/
