    Hi guys, just wondering if i can get a hand with creating a webnote box system. Ive created the form HERE but i havent got a clue how to set up the PHP page it links to :( Ive gave the PHP page read.write permissions etc but i dont know what code i need to use to get it to work.

    Just wondering if anyone had any useful guides to setting these things up or if anyone could give me a little help.

    Any advice is gratefully appreciated.

    Hi there,

    First of all, does your webhost support PHP?

    You could try storing the webnotes into a database and reading off the database...I would wait for someone else to suggest something, as there might be a more feasible solution...

    Thanks...

    Sounds like a good solution to me.

    Take a look at http://www.w3schools.com/php/default.asp to start your php knowledge. Also http://www.php.net/ will have some valuable information.

    Would it be easier for you to have the form e-mail you what people input into it? If so, then maybe I can help...

    Hi there,

    If you are interested in the Webnote system you may want to have a look at this page for how to implement databases: http://www.freewebmasterhelp.com/tutorials/phpmysql/1

    If you want the contact form, then your contact php processing page would be something like this. If you need more help with this I can help on here or you can add me to msn at: ruudbarron [at] hotmail [dot] com.

    Thanks...

    I'll send the files to the e-mail address in your trust if that's ok because I can't upload them anywhere at the minute... :o

    Wow, thanks guys :)

    I tried both the options given to me and decided to use Triggers as i found i couldnt get Conrads working for some reason :(

    A big thank you to all that gave me help, and indeed one of my webspaces will not support PHP it seems, but the other does :)

    Anyone wanting to check out the site can do so HERE

    Thanks again :D
