Hey everyone,

Does anyone know of any software that I can use for people to type there contact information into a laptop (so we can add there information to our database and their email to our listserv)?

Thanks!

Just make a simple web-based form, and leave the laptop with that page open.

Form.html:
Code:

<html><body>
<form action=store.php function=GET><br>
Name: <input type=text name=Name><br>
E-Mail address: <input type=text name=Address><br>
<input type=submit></form>
</body></html>


store.php:
Code:

<?php
echo "<html><body>";
---open database---
$name=$_GET['Name'];
$mail=$_GET['Address'];
---make new row in database: 'name' column=$name, 'mail' column=$mail---
echo "Stored successfully.";
echo "--- Javascript for redirecting to a new page: Form.html---";
echo "</html></body>";
?>


Yeah, I'm too lazy to make the mysql queries for you, and I'm also too lazy to look up an appropriate java script.

Both are easy, and you can get plenty of help doing it. In fact, somebody else would probably do it for around 200frih$ if you asked for it in the marketplace.

Here is a a few websites that can help you do that, maybe not exactly what you are looking for. However they are pretty neat.
