Need a contact form
« on: July 19, 2007, 03:15:02 AM »
Hello,

I need a contact form on my website, that will send to my email address what the visitor enter in the form fields. The problem is that I can't run any php scripts.. is there a way to use some html form?
 :)

You could use JavaScript to embed a form hosted on another server -- I've never used any such service personally, but Kontactr provides such a service.  Other than that, if you can't use php or any other scripting language your next option [that I am aware of] would be a mailto input form--but it's going to launch the contents in their mail client rather than submitting via cgi.

If you are looking for web forms, another good service is Wufoo.

Thank you for your suggestions! I found a site that offers remotely hosted contact forms, www.emailmeform.com . Basically, I paste the html code in my website, and it calls the php script on their server who sends the email. :)

Hmm... Careful with the possiblity of having email addresses stolen for spam lists, though :(
Those guys don't seem to offer any payed service, thus, as nothing comes for free, their catch must be just that.
