Inserting form data into a database  (See more user questions)


Glad the script is doing a job for you!

There isn't a facility in the script to insert data into a database. You
would need to code it yourself to do so.

I can give you a clue, though! All the submitted form values are in the
$_REQUEST array, so for example, the name would be here:


...the email would be here:


...the comments would be here:


Note that 'name', 'email' and 'comments' are the exact (case sensitive)
names of the fields on your form.

So an example line of code to insert into a database, would be like this:

mysql_query("INSERT INTO contact (name,email,comments) VALUES

In the above code, "contact" is the name of the database table and
(name,email,comments) is the name of the fields in the table, which don't
have to be the same name as the form fields.

I would recommend you put your code in the script after the email is sent.
Put it after this line:


Hope this is of some help.

Best wishes.
