    so I used this website : to build a form (which was supposed to act like a php form and send back the inputted information.

    I’m trying to figure out a solution to build a form to email us back the responses so we can fill out a document and email it back to the recipient.

    it’s for a Privacy Policy that is being offered. (

    we ask for the Business name, web address, the current date and the email they would like the final document sent to.

    once we get back the information we could edit the proper file input their information and send it back them.

    I’m re-reading the statement on the website

    ” By clicking on the form controls with this website it is possible to create the code for a HTML form with the supporting PHP code which processes the output and sends the data by email to the user. Javascript validation with this code is also included which checks the inputted entries for mistakes. By using this free service you can create a HTML Form with PHP processing in minutes without any programming knowledge.”

    does that mean that it uses php in the form to somehow associate to a database? or simply that the website uses php to create the form?

    on top of this, when i tried out the form as an example to see how it works, when clicking the Submit button, it directed me to the Opera browser and asked what mail client would i like to use.. so my assumptions are that it doesn’t actually use php in the form, rather uses php on it’s own site to create the form. here’s a link to the site i’m using as an example:
