Hello all,

New to CSS here,

I am using a pre-made free template for my site and and everything about it is perfect for me except for the comment form.

I dont really need a comment form but I do need a Contact form.

Is it possible to turn the comment form into a contact form and if so how would I do that?

And if it is possible how do I then sync the contact form to my email?

Here is the page in question. Contact
I have modified the text to read Contact but it is still a comment form.


//mod edit: This is not a css issue. Moving to "off topic". ~gt

Mid-tier scripting

As a contact form, simply change the text as needed and be sure that the needed info has a place to live in the form. The real difference occurs at the server where the form data is manipulated.



If your web page is as clever as you can make it, it's probably too clever for you to debug or maintain.

This is actually fairly

This is actually fairly common if you are using Wordpress. We have seen several other development companies do this as a way to track contacts in the admin area. The only problem is when you are letting people comment on other pages too. Then it gets a bit confusing as the comments/contacts get mingled.

With that said. Are you coding the site onto a CMS solution or are you leaving it as a static html/css page?
