Contact Form with Captcha and form validation
I am not a good coder, I can get my head around if else statements etc but not around very complex php code. For years I have been using dreamweaver extensions to create contact formss alone with separate captcha and form validation, but to say the least most that are out there at the moment are crap.
i was wondering what you guys use to simplify your contact page, most of the time yes there is a need to ask clients their name, email address, and get there message. other times maybe one or two other fields are required.
Do you guys use a tool for this thus. you complete all the details and upload a few pages and BINGO it all works. I would like to be able to control the captcha aka with regards how many letters one needs to copy into a textfield. I also like to be able to change all words in the name area to be first letter capital.
All in all I just want something of an all-rounder to create my future contact pages, a bit like this cms, as I am confident with css and front end, also calling variables from database.
Do you guys use a tool for emails ??
I would prefer not having to make my own though. I can build a very impressive cms and site on the likes of Dreamweaver no problem but I now come to you guys for a cms as I want to be able to do things faster. The same goes for the contact form. I have checked out your links and am grateful.
But at the end of the day were others to be using a specific GUI type system to build contact email forms I would be grateful to know of such.
Have you looked at Forms-To-Go? http://www.bebosoft.com/products/formstogo/overview/
I like it. You still have to build the HTML file, but then it does the rest for you. I use the php engine and am very happy with it.
