We would like to make a template of a 'Request Form' where anyone who would ask for help can just simply fill out the spaces describing the products such as its respective versions, operating systems, and plug-ins used.
We are also looking into the possibility of including an option for them to attach a snapshot of their product so that we could use it as reference while helping them.
Is there any way for us to do this? We are looking forward to your suggestions.
How to make a template of a ‘Request Form’
To be able to create the request form template, you will need to have basic knowledge in programming using HTML and PHP. I will share with you a little something on how you can go about creating the request form using PHP and HTML.
You will need to create two files, one an html file called contact_form.html and another a PHP file called contact.php. The request file is processed using the second file that is the PHP format.
For the html file, you can try out the code below using an application like Dreamweaver or any other html editor:
<form action="contact.php" method="post">
<input type="text" name="cf_name">
<input type="text" name="cf_email">
<input type="submit" value="Send">
<input type="reset" value="Clear">
The two important attributes that should be contained in the<form> tag are the:
action=”contact.php”– which specifies where the data is to be send,
method=”post”– which specifies how the data is to be send from the form to the specified file.
