Hello,

I admit I am a dummy when it comes to creating web forms from scratch.
So I used and online form builder at phpform.org (free version) and downloaded it.
That free form builder is creating the forms without the info where to send it, where to redirect the success, required form field.
Before I sign up for their premium product, I want to learn some basics:

Q: How do I have the form be sent to me and redirect to a certain page, mark required fields on this particular form?

Thanks!
