I've been pretty keen on PHP recently and WSM has decided to develop an article about the basics of that programing language for our next issue. It's easy to learn and fun to play with - especially when it comes to interacting with website visitors.

Most of the pages on the Web however are still static HTML! As such, if you are looking to add some interactivity to your static HTML site then using forms and scripts to collect data, record information and engage your readers with the page they are visiting at your site is extremely vital. You can learn some of the basic components of HTML forms on W3C Schools guide to HTML forms and input. It's a little light on the "input" side, essentially leaving out any discussion of action attributes (for my money the most important part), but it is an excellent starting point to learn about the basic structure of HTML forms.

If you're looking for a nice PHP script to process form actions, check Giuseppe Calbi's Free Scripts.
