I have been looking for some advise about forms and putting them on a website. From what I found all forms I find email the form once completed to yourself. I dont need the form to email to me, I just want to fill the form out and then have it give the results at the bottom or on a different page.
I am not trying to use this to make money or for a business.. I need a form because I work at a tech support company which requires me to take notes and then submit then later for tickets. It would save me some time if I just use the form and click submit and then get a summary to cut and paste. So far I got the form uploaded to the webpage it is not exactly formatted like I want I can always work on that. I just need help making it give me a summary once I click submit at the bottom. Any ideas, any help would be appreciated.

Here is what I got so far.

You will have to write the PHP processing file to do what you want. You are using XHTML for the form page so be sure to use the proper syntax for XHTML. A few minor errors on the page. Just valiodate and correct:

Why Validate?: http://validator.w3.org/docs/why.html
CSS Validator: http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/
HTML Validator: http://validator.w3....ri with_options
But it Doesn’t Validate : http://net.tutsplus....oesnt-validate/

Many of the following sites will set up the form the way you want it which can be customized to the theme of your page(s). Some will provide the PHP process form which may have to be modified as most of these are Contact Form makers:

If you decide to use the form to send an email instead to you, your current hosting package or service MUST allow SMTP ( http://en.wikipedia....ansfer_Protocol ) to work. Otherwise, no email can be sent.
