Hey I have two questions
First, I have made a few forms and placed buttons at the bottom of the page. I was wondering if it was possible to, when the submit button is pressed, send the information to an e-mail address. If so, what is the scripting?
Second, is it possible to send the info to another page and have it displayed like a guestbook for all to see. I've looked at the guestbook HTML source but i can't see how they make the info appear on the page once submitted, please help

One more question, what is the scripting so that when a certain option is selected from the pull down menu it goes to a certain page. For example if option 1 is picked (Music) it goes to the music page whilst if option 2 is picked (stories) it goes to the story page.

To see how to redirect a user to a page when they choose from a drop-down box, then view the source on this page, its right there.
To start processing forms, you need a server side language such as PHP, Perl or ASP.Net.
For some free scripts, try http://www.hotscripts.com .
If you want to learn about making your own scripts, then I recommend starting with PHP. Its the best, and is the most accessible. Try http://www.php.netIf one of our members helps you, please click the icon to add to their reputation!

to send the results of a form to an email address, use a scripting language, like CGI, Perl. make sure your host's server supports it.
to display the results of a form, u also have to use a scripting language, ASP is good for that, and really easy to learn as well. try http://www.asp101.com or just use google to search for tutorials.

//in <head> add this
if (restore) selObj.selectedIndex=0;
//for frames, change main to frame name (in <body>)
<select name="select" onChange="MM_jumpMenu('parent.frames[\'main\']',this,0)">
