Hi,
For my sins I have been given the task of updating our local Museum's web page and so far it has worked well and nearly everyone is happy with it.

Madam President has decided that online forms are the way to go and this is where computers and I part company.

I believe that html to PHP is what I need. I have the four forms that need to be on the website but they are in PDF format.

Is there any one who can take the Forms and turn them into PHP for me?

Regards

The PHP part is the server-side scripting language that processes the form code you have on your web page(s). Are you wanting PDF files to be editable online? Believe that is possible, but converting PDF forms to run with PHP is a little more complex.

Hi and thank you for the reply.

The forms can be in any format.

We just need people to be able to fill a form in online and email to the Museum.

The only reason the files are in PDF is thats the way they were.

If there is an easier way I will change the file format.

I have never done an online form before.

See if one of these sites will allow you to customize a complete form with all the information you need emailed. Just following the instructions for installing.

Your current hosting package or service MUST allow SMTP ( http://en.wikipedia....ansfer_Protocol ) to work. Otherwise, no email can be sent.

Hi Astranut,

Thank you for that.

I didn't realize that online forms were available.

I am checking them now and I will let you know how it goes.

Google Docs are also a pretty easy way of getting forms online: http://docs.google.c...en&answer=87809

Hi Admin,

Thanks for the tip, I didn't know that I can download Forms straight into Word.


It seems I am Microsoft Office challenged, I am a semi retired photographer but recently purchased my first digital camera.

If you are making the form for a web page, I hope you are not going to use Word to create the HTML file. Word, WordPad, Publisher and even the infamous FrontPage, including many Microsoft web editors should NEVER be used for web pages. They guarantee that your web pages will NOT be cross-browser compatible because of all the Microsoft Schema code it adds. Only IE and Maxthon understand this code. Additionally, FrontPage requires server extensions be installed to work correctly. Recommend a proper web editor.
