    Hello,

    I am relatively new with site design. I have all of the design aspect down perfectly. But I want to get more into forms a programs. I already tried an HTML email form, but all it is, is a glorified mailto: code. I need help on this one...

    I tried following ASP tutorials to the "Tee", but came up with errors, and I don't understand how to implement PHP into my site to make it run. The page will display the form in Dreamweaver but when I preview it, it just shows up as code.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    I don't know much about this, but when it comes to your website you should just be able to ask your host to install php on your server if you haven't already got it.

    Also when you use php you need to save teh page as blah.php, its probably the same for asp.

    If you could post your code, we can help you further.

    Also you can configure PHP/your server to parse html files as php, meaning you could have PHP code in a .htm/.html file.

    If it shows the code, then the scripting engine is not installed or is misconfigured.

    If you're talking about a remote host here, you'll have to find one that supports PHP. If it's a server you control yourself, you can have a look in the tutorial sections here with regard to how you install PHP and Apache.

    A Google will turn up a lot of tutorials as well. If you try one of them and fail, then please report back, and we'll try to sort out what's going wrong.

    Some hosts have forms available to you!

    For example, if you look around in 1and1's FAQs, they have and support a certain form mail script. I recommend asking your host.
