    Website database form old and in need of a new fresh design

    Hi All,

    Ok so I have a small issue regarding a couple of websites I work on.
    So basically the databases for which we receive quotes online is quite out dated and in need of re design.

    It is done in ASPX and opening the file shows a lot of coding I am unfamiliar with.

    I am looking at some design concepts that might help with a transition to a more traditional but modern take on our quote form system.

    I will show you what we have in place currently.
    I would really appreciate any constructive feedback on what my options may be.
    I am family with standard HTML CSS and JAVA.

    The quote form load times are pretty bad so please be patient. This system is basically what we use on three other website that I am currently in charge of.

    Java or JavaScript? Since people quite often confuse the two, that's why I asked.

    Here's my take on this...and I'm one of the few .NET people on the board so this might carry a bit more weight.

    First of all, whether it's dated or not doesn't totally matter in this case. The major issue with that form isn't design...at least not "design" in the CSS/graphic/Photoshop sense. The major issue is "design" in what front-end developers call the "UX", or "User Experience", sense (I hate the term personally because it sounds hipsterish, but it's the term). What you need to do before you can figure out what your options are is to split one form into several. Gather the pertinent information first...name, address, phone number. Don't even worry about what they're moving at first. The important thing is to grab the lead. Once you've done that, then ask "what room(s) are you moving?" and list off the rooms. From there, present one form, possibly using some form of AJAX, for each room that the user selected. This gives the user the option to say save it and finish later rather than trying to enter it in all at once, for example.

    Once you solve that issue, the rest of the design stuff is pretty trivial.

    Hi theGAME1246,

    I respect your honesty. I am familiar with Java Script. You have some valid points that I will take into consideration.
    Thank for the feedback and I can keep you posted as to the progress if you like.

    If you are interested in moving over to a js/php form let me know I'll send you a zip of a contact form script that I wrote. It validates in js and processes (validates again and emails) in php.
