HTML Forms

HTML forms allow users to enter and submit data from your website.

Note: In order for a form to process, you'll need a processing script. Processing scripts are built with server side scripting languages such as PHP, Python, ASP and more.

<form method="post" action="someScript.php">

        <input type="text" name="name" placeholder="Your Name">
        <input type="email" name="email" placeholder="Your Email">
        <textarea name="message" placeholder="Your Message Here"></textarea>
        <input type="submit" name="submit" value="Send">

The above is an example of a simple contact form. If you submit the form you will see a 404 Error page because the script it is looking for does not exist. You will learn how to create a form processing script in later tutorials.
