Hi Gurus all,
a little help needed and if anyone can the dopers can.
I’m doing a free website for a charity local to me, a guy rescues seals in these parts, and his dedication is most admirable, he’s had his property shot at with rifles, dead seals hung on the fence outside his home (and his wife and children have to suffer this too) etc. by ignorant fishermen who wrongly say that seals eat the fish, put them out of business etc.
Hopefully I can raise some public awareness for him with a website, and even more hopefully some funding from here and there.
The sites only half way to being a beta version at the moment, but I’ve run into difficulty with a mail form for a page where people can volunteer to go along and work at the rescue centre.
Forms are something that I don’t deal with in my line of work (although its site related). I’ve got the outline of the page together, containing all the elements it needs, but am at a loss as to the next step. There’s a cgi bin on the server, and I can run anything, perl to cold fusion depending on which server I map the domain to, whatever (not going there).
Presumably now what’s needed is a script of some description, to take all of the input fields, turn them into something comprehensible then mail that info to a pop3 box. (this is my pure speculation as I don’t know)
I’ve trawled the myriad of free script archives, but they all seem to be for a format they set out themselves, and some which host it remotely which is not required. The idea is to make life as simple as possible for the guy running the sanctuary, so that what he gets as a result is a mail with all his questions answered.
There is no budget for the site, it’s a gift from me, and as such all expenses are mine to pay.
If I have to pay to get this script done then I will, and if so can anyone recommend where such a service can be found (the cheaper the better)?
Better still can someone help me get it done with knowledge they possess - anyone willing to assist will receive not only a great deal of gratitude, but a bottle of 12year old malt from the northernmost Whisky distillery in the UK!! – it can be sent anywhere in the world.
The page which needs sorting is
and you can see the context in which it is relevant to the site by going to
and clicking the volunteer page link, please remember this is very unfinished i.e. lots of content yet to be placed.
Any suggestions to help me help the seal rescue centre would be deeply appreciated, I can only spare one bottle of Whisky, so its first solve first receive for that one unless any of you wish to form a collective and consume it at an appropriate Dopers meet
Any further questions, anything at all my email is email@example.com
Thanks in advance
