Making Forms in HTML
Psychology 212h with Prof. Davis
Step 1: Creating the form:
All the essential elements of a form
(including text fields, pop-up menus, radio buttons, and submit
buttons) can be found under the Insert menu at the top
of the screen, and then under the Forms sub-menu.
It is necessary to insert a Submit button
for users to respond to a form.
Step 2: Directing responses:
Responses should be directed to:
Do this by inserting a Hidden Entry
(also under the Forms sub-menu).
This will automatically bring up a window
in which you can enter the appropriate recipient:
Step 3: Form action:
Information is submitted from forms by a
mechanism similar to email.
Because Netscape gets confused
between forms and email, forms must use a program called
FormMail.pl to send information.
