Capture E-mail
« on: August 21, 2004, 01:43:51 PM »

Hi folks!  I was wondering how can I make  a small ad pop up so that I can can prompt vistors to my site to enter their email.  I writeing a newsletter that I will be sending out each month.  It will be free to all visitors who leave their email address.  Do I need to use HTML or what should I do?  Thanks in advance for all your help.

It depends on what you plan to do with the information once you've got it.  One easy thing to do is to create a form then on submit, send yourself an email with the data.  It won't be stored in a database (unless you input the data again) but you won't have to worry about .php or the like.

To be honest, I've never had to do this via HTML.  You might be able to do something in the FORM Post but I think you'll have to go with CGI to get this done.
