Hi, I want to create a simple mailing list signup form for my site (which will be entirely in flash) similar to the one here:
accept without the zip option.
I have access to MySQL using phpMyAdmin. I was thinking that I could just store the adresses to the db. Problem is, I don't know how to do it in flash mx. I am a novice when it comes to flash, and I'm sure I'll have many questions for you. I also have several other questions about the site in general that need to be answered if anyone is interested in investigating them.
So, Problem: need functional mailing list in MX.
1) How do I integrate the form and PHP into MX so that PHP sends the addresses to the db?
2) What's the easiest way to setup the db (I don't know that either)?
3) Once the db has the addresses stored, how can I retrieve them and send out my mailer?
4) I also have Mojo Mail on my server; is there a way that I can use it to collect the names from the db and send them?
I really need answers as soon as possible.
Remember, I don't know what I'm doing, please try to simplify your explainations.
If anyone knows of any relevant tutorials, please post them as well.
Thanks very much for any help.
