Hi. It is a while since I was on here but I am slightly forward from where I was a year ago, despite only really starting to use RW7 in anger this month.
I have, with the kind help of Will Woodgate, managed to launch my first RW site and everything worked fine (eventually) except the contact form. I was just getting a 404 on that page. I later discovered that our host does not support PHP, so I went in search of a solution. I discovered “HTML Contact Form” a stack by Doobox which worked beautifully.
Except that none of the filled forms were forwarded to the nominated email address I pointed the form towards. After much head scratching and enquiry I discovered that, contrary to what I inferred from Gary’s web site, the Doobox stack still requires PHP support! So I had spent £7 to get a non-functional form to render on the web page.
Before anyone says it, changing the host is not an option. However, the host has been quite helpful in offering advice on how to use a perl script to get a contact form to work. The sad bit is, I have not a clue how to get a perl script to work with RW; it is a realm of coding way above my pay grade. I am game for most things but this one assumes I know far more than I do.
Does anyone here have experience of making their own perl diy feedback or contact form? If so, would they mind giving me a dimwit’s guide. Can it work with the form already available in RW or do I have to write my own HTML form? I cannot write HTML but I can copy and paste :0) Any help will be very greatly appreciated. I asked Gary but have not heard back yet.
