HTML/PHP Form To Submit CV Details

Hi

I am developing a website to accept CV details from various candidates. The website environment is Linux/Apache/MySQL/PHP. I would like to find a general purpose form that I can change to suit our requirements. That will allow visitors to the website to enter their CV details.

Does anybody know where I can get the basics of such a form.

Thanks

You should know that users find those types of forms incredibly annoying, because they need to type all their stuff into a million little boxes. Any accidental keypress, closing the window, etc, can cause them to lose their work.

Think about allowing users to enter just the bare minimum of for fields then upload a word or HTML document with their full CV. You can use a tool like antiword to extract the text from the CV for use in full-text searching.

Hope that helps.

Yep.  If you do end up using a huge form, PLEASE make sure you setup the HTTP headers on your pages to cache.  If you pages don't cache, then anything they enter in the text boxes will disappear if they reload the page, accidentally hit the back button, etc.

header("Cache-Control: private");

That's my two cents :)
