    hello all

    ive just started a web design course and our first project is to design a hotel site and so far so good. ive got to the last page of my site which is the online booking form and im a bit stumped. Now before i approach my teacher i would prefer to try and find out how to do it on my own, ive scoured google trying to find a tutorial but all i find is people trying to sell me products that build forms for me.

    anyway if any of you guys know a good link or if the code is simple enough, i would really appreciate any help.

    thanks

    you can use a regular php or perl form for that. Try Googling PHP forms. You may want to also store the information in a database, like MySQL.

    hi Diddy

    thanks for the reply.
    atm we have only covered HTML & CSS (its only week 8 of the course). the php tutorial you posted made sense to me but id be lying if i said i understood the purpose of the characters in the code. now while i would like to impress my classmates and teachers with a fancy booking form, i would also like to know exactly what i wrote down so i think that for this project ill have to stick to a more basic system.
    i forgot to mention in my OP that these sites are purely ficticious and wont even be uploaded onto a server so i dont know if any database would have a purpose.

    but tbh i dont have a clue what MySQL is at this stage and i would be hopeless at trying to use it.

    thanks for your help nonetheless.

    Well if its not going to be put on a server, then the methods I suggested couldn't work. Also, since you're not learning them, (at least at this stage) then you probably shouldn't be using them.

    So I'd suggest just a basic HTML form. This is a mailto form, so basically it mails the information entered into the form to your e-mail address. Only problem is, it's not widely supported. . But you may want to check out some online tutorials on this.

    Google search:

    This site I found useful. Just remeber that it is a bit outdated and isn't XHTML, so just modify it for XHTML.

    Diddy, he could install PHP and a Database engine on his local machine.

    It makes sense to have PHP installed, saves you FTPing files you are working on.

    How could your teacher expect you to do a booking form that really works
    without using PHP or some other server-side scripting?

    I guess you could simulate something using Javascripting (local to your PC).
    It would be like a made-up thing that doesn't really do anything.

    You could use a flat database I guess. That way you don't need server side just simple html file writes.
