I have a form in ASP and I want to convert it to PHP and I am stuck on the basis, I know it will involve calculations and store the ad text and weeks to run, etc What I have pasted is what I have above.

Here is what i am trying to do but in PHP - http://www.starmedianetwork.com/o-ifpa.aspx

After you run it it brings you to fill in the name, address, etc. I am thinking just having it on one page. Any other suggestions on the rest? I am stuck on that part, I know it will involve getting a word count calculating the number of words by the price.

Would this work - http://ordinarywebguy.wordpress.com/2006/09/22/getting-a-number-of-words-in-a-string-using-php/ for getting the number?

Thanks!

<?php

	$weeks    = $_REQUEST["weeks"];

	$ad       = $_REQUEST["ad"];

	$fn       = $_REQUEST["fn"];

	$ln       = $_REQUEST["ln"];

	$company  = $_REQUEST["company"];

	$email    = $_REQUEST["email"];

	$phone    = $_REQUEST["phone"];

	$date     = $_REQUEST["date"];

	$comments = $_REQUEST["comments"];

	$price    = "565";                 // price for ad

	

?>	

<h3>Step 1 - Ad Text</h3>

<form name="calculate" action="#" />

	<label for="name">Weeks to run ad:</label>

	<select name="name">

		<option value="1">1</option>

		<option value="2">2</option>

		<option value="3">3</option>

		<option value="4">4</option>

	</select><br />

	<p>$565 - 15 words</p>

	<label for="ad">Ad Text:</label>

	<textarea name="ad" rows="5" cols="15"></textarea><br />

	

	<label for="fn">First Name:</label>

	<input type="text" name="fn" /><br />

	<label for="ln">Last Name:</label>

	<input type="text" name="ln" /><br />

	<label for="company">Company Name:</label>

	<input type="text" name="company" /><br />

	<label for="email">E-mail:</label>

	<input type="text" name="fn" /><br />

	<label for="phone">Phone:</label>

	<input type="text" name="phone" /><br />

	<label for="date">Starting Date:</label>

	<input type="text" name="date" /><br />

	<label for="comments">Comments:</label>

	<textarea name="comments" rows="5" cols="15"></textarea><br />

	

	<input type="submit" name="submit" value="Calculate!" />

</form>

Hello catonthecouchproductions,

The number of word in the comments could be found as follow:
$arrayWord = split(' ',$comments);
$countWord = count($arrayWord);

Regards,

So those two lines willl work for getting the word count of the textarea? And then from there I can do a simple calculation

$cost = $countword * $price;

Is that right?

Doing that you will charge $565 per word.

I should have added a "." haha Some of the ads will have:

   $25 words = $1195
   Additional Words = $45

How would I go about grouping that?

Sorry, I don't understand
$25 words = $1195

Do you mean
25 words = $1195

is the rule 15 words = $565 still valid?

That was my bad, sorry for the mistake. Yeah, I meant some will have:

25 words for $1195, and in the long run I want to hook it up to a DB and pull each value out therre will be a bunch
