    Submitted a Form?

    I have a dilemma, and I am unsure how to tackle it, hopefully somebody out there should know.

    Basically I have a static website (not CMS), and I have a form on it. The form is being send using mailto, and as you can imagine this launches Outlook, or in my case Thunderbird.

    The problem is this, it looks terrible, the person I did the site for is also complaining, and many of his friends are complaining too, which hardly helps my situation.

    Is there a way to have a form send on a static website, without the need for it to send it using mailto.

    Any information would be appreciated.

    No need for a full CMS, but you do need a script that can process the form. Can you install anything server-side on the host? If so, there are lots of donloadable mail sending scripts. Be careful WRT security, but that should get ya there.

    The server can run PHP, it's just I am not that good at PHP. At my previous job we had a script that basically we put some random ID into the form. From there we use to log into a website, and put some credentials like url, form name, page to be redirected. I was hoping for a similar solution.

    I have found a solution, http://www.ibdhost.com/contact/, all I have to do is implement it on the current form.
