Forms & Auto Additions To Page


mystic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I was wondering if theres a way I can have a form on my site and once they fill it out it automatically gets added to a certain page on my site? Also after they fill out the form and submit they get an email autoresponder letting them no they got added and a link to the page where they got added.

 

I'm using front page 2002 and my idea is that i want to make a page on my wholesale directory that is a "product locator" so bascially people come add a request or respond to the request if they have what the other person is looking for. also i was wondering if theres a way i can have a login for both the buyer and the seller. So if someone wants to post an item that there looking for they'll have to login first and same with the person answering to the request.

You would need a database and some PHP/MySQL knowledge (or a program built on them).

 

If you know PHP, it sounds like a pretty straightforward thing to set up. The email responder wouldn't be a problem. If you don't know PHP, you could always adapt existing software--a forum would work, a blog might work, a content management system like Drupal would work but would be a little overkill (although you could use it to control all your site content).

 

The forum would probably be the easiest to adapt for your purposes, although you might have to look around for one that will send email responders. I couldn't tell you how all this would work with Front Page, though--I haven't used that program in ages.

None of what you are asking are 'frontpage' territory, you need a script, either perl/cgi or php.

 

Sounds like some type of classifieds is what you are looking for.

If you do a search, you'll find many hits on script classifieds.

 

As mentioned, a forum would also work, most have email notification when a topic is replied to.
