. You can get the values using Javascript, and Ajax them in, but you still need a server side language to do something with the values. If you're not planning on sending or storing the user form data, what is the form for?

If you just want to get the values of some input, and not send it, you just use on of Javascripts methods for getting values (or jQuery if you decide to include that library). You don't use a form, thus you don't have an action or method.

To have an action and method on a form, you need a server side language to handle that.

Truth be told, it's pretty easy to send emails with the PHP mailer website, and almost all hosting servers, even your most basic shared plans have PHP installed on them for you. Thank You :)

You're welcome :] .

If I understand this question correctly, yes you do. With Rails is one way to do it.

It depends on what exactly do you want to achieve. If the login/password is saved in a database, yes, you need a running server and some code (in php, pyhton, ruby or whatever). If you want a simple password protected page you can do it in javascript.
