I made a registration page with forms and it looks great. But where do I go to figure out how to make it "Submit" the info (securely) where it needs to be compiled? I know there are several ways to do it (email, or into the server) but I don't know which way is best or how to do it. It has to be fairly simple, though. I plan to use "Captcha" for the security part.

I'm really lost at this part! Thanks for any help.

Well, with further research, this looks promising.

Anyone have any experience with this outfit or advice on using it? Or should I just go with my hosting server and CGI bins?

The sound of your question suggests that you're not sure about how to make the form do something?

A registration form? What are they registering for? That will help with the appropriate answers.

If you're just gathering data to be handled by an email I can recommend this PHP script:

http://formtoemail.com/formtoemail_pro_version.php

If it's more complex than that, then you need more server side processing, for which the form is just the front end - tell us what the proposed requirement is.

If you're looking for a more useful looking online form processing service try this one:

It's probably more complex as it's registration for a trip with a tour company. I think I'm looking at server side processing here. Still not sure how that's done but I'll contact the server for starters. Thanks for the reply.

Update: Hosting company said it was outside their scope of their giving online help. Wufoo is a good idea but my client wants to stay inside her website. If anyone has suggestions for a crash course in PHP or MySQL or CGI-bins that will help me get this one page working, I'd sure appreciate it! (The HTML part is all done and looks great).

Tony Crockford: I think your suggestion of "formtoemail" might be just what I'm looking for! I'm going to try the free version and if it works, I'll use that system. Thank you very much for your help!
