Many Problems! Webmasters Gurus! Rescue Me! by Nobody: 2:17pm On Mar 26, 2009
Hi Webmasters,

1. Im using frontpage to design a website.

My main problem is the submit button! I dont know how to use it. PHP or what do they call itsef,

Please can someone recommend a good software for me so that when the submit button is clicked. It will save all the data info and send it directly to the webmail.


2. Dynamic Effects, e.g. http://www.dynamicdrive.com/
How do I apply this to my website! To display those effects/animnations and paparasky! Im so confused.

Gurus help me ouT!

1) By default, hitting a submit button will submit your form. If you are to do it my way, you will need to do the following:

a) Have what I call a "processor page" which you put in your form's "action" attribute like so:
<form action="submit_processor.php" (other attributes go in here)>

b) You will need PHP or some other backend language to capture the form field values from the previous page
c) You will need mysql or some other db program to store the values in a database
d) You will need PHP or some other backend language to send say, a "thank you" email to the form filler.

2) You add the effects by following instructions on the page. Most examples put everything for you in a zip file and all you have to do is modify the code where necessary.

Good luck!

I doubt he's got any solution. You know how you do it, ask him to PM you so he can get some of those "secret codes"

Hello NL, can anyone help me with this PHP code.

Pls help me to finetune this PHP code to mine from my Db with particular reference to a form item.
e.g.
select *from DB where StudentID = "$text_StudentID"

What I want here is ("$text_StudentID"wink is a form item that will use the studentID in the form as a basis of searching the dD among other items.
Pls correct the SQL for me as i know its wrong, not fecthing from the db.

Thanks.

I'm surprised you are working on a database without knowing how to connect and call stuffs from your database. Well, just look at the below code and see if you can understand it.

$sql="SELECT * FROM students WHERE username='$username' && password='$password'";
$result=mysql_query($sql);


Formulate what you want from there.

@ poster.
Dynamic Effects are good to use. Most of the codes are in two sections.
Take a good look at the codes, u need to copy and paste some at the head section of your page before it can run effectively. e.g

<head>
the stuff and some CSS here
</head>


then the second part goes into the body section of the page most especially in the td section that will habour the effect.
<body>
<td> the code for the effects </td>
</body>


You can now edit the code to siut your personal need for your site.

Hope u can find your way out here.
