    Hey so i used to do web pages back in the day, nothing special just basic html shits in dreamweaver. anyway i got proposed with a job to build a webpage for a client thats hosting some sort of conference. she wants to the site to have info on the conference and allow people to register for the conference. anyone know the easiest way to make a registration page? i need to know everything from how to design it to how to tell it where to send the results to and collect the results. if its to complicated for me i'm going to tell her no. but i'm hoping not cause i need teh cash:x:

    I'm not sure of your knowledge, but I'd recommend a couple quick things.

    If you aren't familiar with CSS and don't have the time to learn, then first build your registration form in a table. You'll need input boxes and a submit button.

    Then, as was mentioned above, you'll need some sort of page that does some scripting. I'd recommend PHP. If you google "PHP Registration page" I'm sure you can get a quick dirty script to do what you need.

    Then, whether she wants to either A) House the results in a database or B) Have the results emailed to her, or C) both.

    A) Use mysql and google "PHP and MYSQL store results" or something generic, again there will be hundreds of results.

    B) Google "sending email with php" and follow instructions you receive.

    C) Do A + B

    This advice isn't what a pro would do, but it should help any novice create a quick, dirty, and cheap registration page.

    Go download a demo of Dreamweaver, otherwise there are hundreds of free text editors out there.
