has provided you with an easy-to-use CGI form script. Forms
on web pages do not work unless you have linked them to some
program or script on the server. The form.cgi script provided
at http://members.valley.net/cgi-bin/form.cgi is that program.
When you create a web page which uses forms, you will need to
link it to the http://members.valley.net/cgi-bin/form.cgi script
in order for the information to be sent to your email address.
will find the basic information you need in the information
and sample code provided below. Copy, paste, and modify the
code (with your specific settings) into your form web page.
If you are using a "What You See is What You Get"
web design program like Front Page, do not paste this text into
the Design Window (this will just write your page so it shows
all this code to the user). Instead, find out how to view source
code (or html) inside your design program and paste the following
information into *that* window. Make the necessary changes (your
domain and your email address) right in the source code (or
HTML) window. Now you are ready to go back to the design window
and add or remove fields and other elements in your page.
note that this CGI is placed here as a service to ValleyNet
users. If you would like to use it on other servers, please
contact the the author, email@example.com.
Though Valley Net does not officially provide support for writing
CGI scripts or web pages, if you need some basic help/support
in getting your web page or form running, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
