Our first foray into web forms was the development of an email form. Scott made one that sent him an auto-notification. Brant made one that allowed users of his site to send registration information. I created one that allowed users to send an email to the restaurant from the web form. We learned that your host MUST support the correct version of PHP, and picked up some syntax tricks along the way.
See the [cref email-form-tutorial] Post for instructions for implementing this.
