    Question Forms

    I am wanting to place a 'Review' form on my work's website and was wondering if there is a way to have a form post the review onto the website or is it easier to have the form contents emailed to me then I upload it manually.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    It would take a bit of scripting to do that, unless you are using a content management system already, in which case that facility would probably be built in. If you just have a normal contact form, pasting the comments in is the main option—but it's a bit tedious. There are some scripts out there that you can just plug in to your static website, like this one:

    We use Pegboard.

    I have had a look through and it seems that it only has the ability to send the form data as an email and not post to the website.

    At a quick glance, it seems to have a series of modules. You could probably use the Blog module to post items and then receive comments. That's how most CMSs do it.
