    Having form entries organize in a database-- how?

    We have a site made in Weebly with some custom forms, and we have them set up so form entries come to us via email.

    But we would like form entries to go onto a database, or a json file or something like that.

    And to make it complex, a customer fills out a few different forms. For example, page 1 is name and address. They hit continue to go to page 2, which asks for birth date and sex, etc. I want all form entries per individual to organize on 1 page or in 1 place.

    Any tips on how to do this?

    With Weebly, can you use a database? I didn't think you could do any PHP scripting.

    No I don't think you can.

    So, is there a better CMS environment were we can do this? Wordpress? Drupal? concrete5? Something else?

    Get your own real website with a shared webhost like godaddy and also your own domain name. Then you have all possibilities like wordpress or your own hand-made scripting. You can do anything you want.

    We have our own domain and the site is hosted by godaddy.

    All the forms are done with embed code from a separate form builder.

    Is there not a way to make these form entries go into an organized report?

    Sure there is. It'll require a database and code to put the form contents into the database and generate whatever reports you want. Max never said there wasn't.

    Now, if you're looking for a Joomla/W*rdPr*ss/Drupal or something, that's hard to say because it depends on the forms themselves and what you want them to do. Personally, I'd suggest learning how to code yourself and build the forms.

    You also have another issue here that is important. It sounds like you are asking the customer to give personal information, like birthday? How much information are you obtaining? Perhaps you should be using a secure webhost server, something GoDaddy offers, but at a higher cost?

    Each form they fill out get written to the MySQLi database. Once all data is in place, you could use PHP FPDF to create a one-page PDF output of the customer information. I'm not sure how you want to display or present the final information.

    Can you show us the forms that are filled out? That might help me answer this better.
