So you all know what forms are : submit, text fields, comments etc......

What I want to know is how to make the submit button work and all the information you type in these fields to be saved but when you click the submit button nothing happens
Please help and if you dont understand what I am saying ask me questions

I dont think it is possible to save out to the database, they dont allow you access. And even if you did i dont think they allow you access to the server side code.

It is possible to send the information of a form to an e-mail. But not sure that is what you want to do.

Did the form post back or refresh the page when you hit the submit button? Could you also post your form tag in here so we could take a look?

I am just talking about in general


example: You can register here by putting stuff into forms and then submitting them

I want to know how to do that and how to get people to post comments on HTML pages

Ok, i dont think that you can. In order for you to save comments you have to be able to store that information somewhere, usually in a database.

The reason the forum works is because behind the scenes they have another coding language that takes care of communicating with their database (probably php or asp).

Without access i dont think it is possible, unless they have some built in module as part of their server side code we can use.
