so does this imply that forms should be created in php and referenced rather than putting the form code and it elements/attributes in your html.

I am trying to tweak an older website that has the form in the html. It used to edit errors and now it does nothing to flag errors. I can't find the error. It is apparently beyond my knowledge base at this point. It is using a function to send alerts if the field is not entered, but no alerts are showing up and it transfers to the thank you page even on pressing enter. I am stumped and I have not yet found the solution within these lessons. Any possible assistance would be appreciated.

You can upload the files to a server or install xampp or wamp

  • Once the submit button is pressed, the data is sent to the server for processing
  • Some forms, likecalculators, do not need to go to the browser
  • Back end programming is needed to communicate between a form and server
