It Works Like This

A major draw to Dreamweaver MX 2004 is its ability to easily produce server-side code. To many, this means databases, master-detail page sets, and writing SQL statements. There’s more to server-side coding than just databases, however. One of the most common requests that clients have is to place a contact form on their site and have the entries of that form sent to an email address—frequently to their sales or customer service email address—so that someone within the company can respond to the visitor who filled out the form. Here are the basic steps of the project:

1.
Use Dreamweaver’s sample CSS style sheets to give your pages a styling jumpstart.

2.
Create a ColdFusion, ASP VBScript, or PHP Contact Us page with a form on it using a table for layout.

3.
Use Dreamweaver form objects to add text fields, radio buttons, a select menu, check boxes, a textarea, and buttons to your contact page form.

4.
Build a Thank You page using the DWMagic Mailer Server Behavior that can process site visitors’ form submissions on the Contact Us page, and then send an email containing those form entries.
