I am new to Html and I am searching for code to embed into my webpage that will do several things:

1. Create a form that gets a visitor's name and email address (has a 'Submit' button).
2. Adds the name and email to a list (maybe just a txt document or a database). --> Note: I don't have a database set up, and I do not know how to code one (so I would need a lot of code for this option).
3. When the submit button is clicked, an email is sent to me (xxxxxx@yahoo.com) with the updated list of emails as the body of the email. The subject is : "New member has joined"

Can you please provide code. It will really help me. Thank you so much.

HTML is quite limited in regard of handling a membership based website, to be efficient you need a server side language like PHP, ASP, Coldfusion etc.

Do you have oe of them available on your server? Or if you are hosting your website with a commercial host do they have one available?

Oops, sorry about that, ok let start with the registration form, there is a signup script available here who can do a lot of the stuff you need for membership based website it's called vSignup 2.5 and you can downloaded here

the script use a database system (mysql) do you have MySQL available? Most webhost who offer PHP also have MySQL available.

The script look complex but there is only a few parameters you need to provide to install the script.

Let meknow if you have any problem installing the script.
