That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I discover an decent answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could give you an answer..

He Kevin,.

I just used plain HTML for it, but I didn't know wich language to choose and how to do it so I posted a thread....

I thougth that it was a smarter otherwise I made a page wich didn't work and I had to throw it away when the scripting couldn't be implented....



Sorry for my poor English..

Hi bloged,.

Which server script you use will depend on your server. PERL is still the most widely offered server side script. PHP might be the next followed by ASP..

I know some PERL myself, so I do things using PERL whenever possible..

There are many online sources for free scripts/forms, you might be able to find one that can be adapted to your purpose..

Button1 to page2.

Button2 to page3.

The HTML is pretty simple, example:.

<input type=submit name=submit value="Continue to page 2">.

<input type=submit name=submit2 value="Continue to page 3">.

When your script recieves the data from the form, it needs to be programmed on what to do depending on the input, somthing like:.

If ($FORM{'submit'}) {&do_page2;}.

If ($FORM{'submit2'}) {&do_page3;}.

If you don't understand what I'm telling you, you may not have enough experince yet to make your forms and scripts..



Comment #5

I think I'll understand what you mean..

Only I don't have that much time to learn everything, so I only learned plain HTML and the rest will come when I need it....



Comment #6

If you want custom form/scripts, you have to learn some server side programming, there is no way around it. HTML code really only displays the form, it can not process the data or do anything with it..

PERL is the easiest to learn in my opinion. Maybe not the most popular anymore, but for processing some simple forms, PERL is perfect..
