Problems creating/using a form.

Post by beldog41 on March 9th 2012, 7:29 pm

Im new to this so bear with me.... I have been reading up on creating forms and posting that information gathered to a thread on my forum. I have created the form I want with a html module?
http://ugfclan.4umer.com/h1-recruitment-form

I am not sure how to get this to post to a current thread though. The code is as follows:

<form action="/post" method="post" enctype="text/plain">

<legend>Player Information</legend>
<br>

PSN ID:<br>

<input type="text" name="PSN ID">

<br><br>

Age: <br>

<input type="text" name="Age">

<br><br>
Location: <br>

<input type="text" name="Location">

<br><br>

Microphone:<br>
Yes:<input type="radio" name="Yes" value="Yes"> <br>
No:<input type="radio" name="No" value="No">
<br><br>
Which game types do you play?<br>
TDM<input type="checkbox" name="game" value="TDM"><br>
DOM<input type="checkbox" name="game" value="DOM"><br>
SND<input type="checkbox" name="game" value="SND"><br>
KC<input type="checkbox" name="game" value="KC">

<br><br>Comments:<br><textarea name="comments" rows="6"
cols="65"></textarea>
</form>
<input type="submit" value="Post"><input type="reset" value="Reset">


Any help would be great!!! And thanks in advance Very Happy

I seem to have the form working, just need information on "post modes". When I hit post it gives me the message "no post mode specified". Im assuming this is where I would direct the information to a current post. Not sure how to do that though...

Please don't double/triple post.

Your post need to be separated by 24 hours before bumping, replying or adding more information. Please use the EDIT button instead.

There are lots of hidden inputs included in the forms which post threads an posts in the forum, if you continue your research on forms and read about hidden inputs.

You'll then need to look at the forms on your forum to see what hidden inputs are needed, and the values mean.
