I would like to create a form that would aloud my user to change several variable on the site.

Form will ask:

What color for the background?
 
What name to use?

Then went the user submit the form the response will be included the actual site.

The background would be “Blue” or “Red” or whatever color the user included.

I Have the form completed with all the fields, I also created the web page now how do I get the two to work together.

All I need is maybe a tutorial or a url with reference as to how to get this done.

Thanks

Watch Question

you have to simple html forms  to send that information to php
<?php
      
      if((isset($_REQUEST['clr'])) && ($_REQUEST['clr']!=""))
      {
            $bgcolor = $_REQUEST['clr'];

            print "<BODY bgcolor=$bgcolor>";
      }
?>


<form name=htmldetails>
<input type=text name=clr value='#660033'>
<input type=submit name=submit value=sub>
<form>
I did not understand why you need name..
You should use SESSIONS

Do not include anything else before the <?php.

<?php
     if(isset($_POST['customize']) && $_POST['color'] != "" && $_POST['uname'] != "")
     {
          session_register(user_name);
          session_register(user_color);
     
          $_SESSION["user_name"] = $_POST['uname'];
          $_SESSION["user_color"] = $_POST['color'];
     }

     if(!session_is_registered(user_name))
     {
         print "<form action='testdatabase.php' method='POST'>
                 Color: <input type='text' name='color'><br>
                 Name: <input type='text' name='uname'><br>
                 <input type='submit' value='Update' name='customize'>
                 </form>";
     }

     print "<html><body bgcolor='".$_SESSION["user_color"]."'>";
     if(session_is_registered(user_name))
       {
             print "Welcome, ".$_SESSION["user_name"];
       }
       else
       {
          print "You are an unknown person!";
       }
     print "</body></html>";
?>
