Thread: Forms

    Default Forms

    Just before everything went offline over the weekend, i had posted asking if there was any gadget etc I could use to put a page on mt site for people to subscribe for email updates.
    The answer I got was that it had to be done by a third party so I knocked up a page myself using Open Office and tried to post it for people to assess.
    However, the post doesn't open when I click on the new post conformation in my email folders so it looks like it's been lost.

    As it stands though I have found a superb alternative.
    I did a bit of searching for a free account and found Cognito Forms.
    Fantastic. Basic with options to upgrade but I don't need anything fancy,

    Just thought I'd post so that others needing similar can find it.

    I use a PHP form maker tool for simple forms and host everything on my site. This way you are not relaying on a third party to host the form and send you the information. Your site has to have PHP enabled in order for it to work. Here is the website for the form maker http://www.formmail-maker.com/formmail-maker-home.php

    It does look interesting but pricey if you need PayPal payments ($24/m == ). It does appear comprehensive but I always worry about such entities hosting my data, especially as it is called Cognito. I might have been drawn were it named InCognito. I would probably go down the XT-CMS route () for a payment service but roll my own simpler forms in PHP and self-host (free) or even use the worthy forms provided through XaraTemplate.com ().

    I'm currently looking at https://jqueryform.com/.

    I needed a contact form for several websites I had developed, and didn't want to go the third-party route. So, using the "HTML in a placeholder" feature of Web Designer I wrote some HTML code that works well, has a "Recaptcha wannabe" input field,and uses a .php file for input validation. The .php file also sends me an email with the collected contact information. If you want to see the sample code and the .php file, let me know and I will send it to you.

    You can see (and try out) the form at https://nresystems.com

    Hi capnjackp and welcome to talk graphics. You being a new member I can’t send you a pm. I like your form and would like to see your sample code and the .php file. Perhaps you can put it in this thread for all to see and benefit. Thank you for your offer.
