    Well, I have a teacher that I made a website for, and he sells Han's Devices for motorcycle riders.

    What I would like to know is how would I make an order form or somthing like that to where the person fills out information such as:

    First Name, Last Name
    Product x Qty
    Mailing Address
    Etc.

    How would I go about doing this?

    I know how to make the boxes and radio's and everything, I just need to know how to make the actual form to where it submits to an email address or somthing like that.

    Easiest way would be to use PHP.

    Your webhost needs to support PHP and PHP Sendmail.


    Create a webpage with the form like this:

    <form action="sendform.php" action="post">
    .
    .blah blah
    .your form here
    .
    .
    </form>


    Give us a link to the form, and we'll give you a PHP
    script to upload into the same directory as your web page.

    You can also just go to any website and copy their HTML form.
    We can work with that and show you what to change.

    FYI, some places give the "tip" of making the form "send" to an email address. Instead of a POST or GET, it sends the result to a mail client. however, that's bad for many reasons, not the least of which is IE6 doesn't support them.
