Help Please - PHPformgenerator through Fantastico Cpanel

I installed PHPformgenerator on my site with Fantastico.  I need to collect first, last names, email addy and have a text area.  Then I need to store this info and then email the results as well to two people.

I really need help with code, as I'm not a coder at all........ the installation sure what easy, but I suppose I need more than just the 4 fields..  I know about hidden inputs, but I don't know how to use those in this setup.  Do I include these in the number of fields for the form?  I would really appreciate some sample code, as well as a quick walk through using this formgenerator.. and I hope it's not over my head to plug this into this form generator.

I never used PHPformgenerator.

>>>Do I include these in the number of fields for the form?
You need to collect hidden filedss data as you do for normal text fields. For example


<form name="test" method="post" action="post.php">
<input type="hidden" name="hidden_field" value="hidden value" />
<input type="text" name="visible_field" />


echo "value for hidden field".$_POST["hidden_field"]."<br>";
echo "value for visible field".$_POST["visible_field"]."<br>";
