    I am designing a few websites that utilize forms. I have having a problem with my forms.

    When someone fills out a form and the hits "Submit", I would like the information posted directly to the website. The site I am doing has free classifieds on it. I do not want to spend a lot of time posting those adds one at a time by hand, and would like them to post directly to the website. I have seen it done on a few pages a while back, but I can't find any examples to learn from. I am a HTML/Frontpage junkie. If anyone could help me with this I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thank you,
    Lars

    You can (easily) adapt a guestbook script to do this. Sorry for the shameless plug, but I know some people have used my guestbook script to do this: http://ekstreme.com/phplabs/egbook.php . It's written in PHP.

    Thank you for the help. It looks like I am going to have to learn PHP after all. I was trying to avoid learning it. Can you check a test page I am doing and tell me if your program will be suitable for my site. I hope it isnt against the rules to post my site here. This is a smaple page of what I am trying to put together. There will be at least two pages listed like this on my website.

    PHP isn't that difficult to grasp, at the most basic level -- e.g., that needed for editing a script. So it shouldn't be all that difficult.
