So I'm creating a form where I have a couple text fields and I'd like the information sent to me somehow (without paying a service preferably). I was going to use the action="mailto:______", but that seems to simply ope up the default email application.
Is there a form action that will simply send the information to an email address or database as soon as they click the submit button?
Also, how can I program the submit button to redirect to a specific url?
You would have to use a back end language like PHP or something similar. HTML cannot perform this action alone.
