Adding a Form to your Yahoo Website

If you have a yahoo website, here is a simple HTML script you can use to create simple forms.  You can edit the script to give your form the look and feel you want.

 

See example on: www.vcprojects.net/form.html

 

So a form talks to your server, and then the server sends an email to you.  Because of that, getting a form to actually work can be a little bit tricky; there are many things with your hosting company that you have to get right in order for a form to work.

You can do javascript forms, css3 forms, html5 forms, php forms, and other types of forms.  There are many scripts available on the internet.  The problem is getting those scripts to work with your server properly.

In our case, mostly our server is yahoo, and I got this script directly from yahoo.

You can find it, too, if you log into your account at smallbusiness.yahoo.com, go into email control panel, and make sure you have set up at least one email for your account.  So set up something like “info@mysite.com” or aisha@aishassite.com or whatever you like.  AFTER you have done that, test it, by sending an email to your new address, and check to see if it’s working.  NEXT, go back into the yahoo account, and do the following:

and then into “Email Forms”

Then you copy paste the script they generate for you, into a new html page on Dreamweaver, and give it a try.  Once it works, then you can begin customizing how your form looks and what info you are collecting.
