I am a new "web designer" if that's what you want to call it. I am currently in the process of developing a website for a consulting company.
I want to have a form where user's can fill in information and click "submit" or whatever.
Then the information will be stored in another .html file called "secret.html" or whatever. Where the owner of the company could go and view all the submitted information.
As it is a small company I am not worried about hackers, I will beef up security later. I am quite good with security in my opinion. But the problem is HTML I have no idea what I am doing.
First off you are designing a site for a client
and you have no clue about HTML?
Thats like me saying I plan on doing brain surgery but have never taken a single medical class...
Small company or not you need to be worried about security ESPECIALLY if this is for a client and not yourself and ESPECIALLY if you are going to have users fill in their information. Seriously, knowing what I know now by your post I would NEVER submit my information to a site you designed since security is of minor importance and now my information can be easily compromised.
Worry about security mate.... And learn HTML....
Just my 2 cents...
