Hi I am looking to hire someone to help us at my work, I tried posting an add on craigs list and of the 12 responces that we got, not a single person answered all the basic questions that we posted for people who are intrested.

So I figured maybe if I make an online form for people to fill out. For example we would only need a few drop down boxes and some text box fields.

I did this many years ago but can not remember how I did it. I do have dreamweaver but can not find info on how to set a custom form up. I dont know the advanced computer languages but I know basic html. Any ideas?

Do you have an Internet site available to you? You will need to host your site first.

You can host for free on www.wordpress.com. And here is an article on how to create a form without a plugin, which are not available for free WordPress sites:  How to create custom forms in WordPress without using plugins?

I don't think a form is going to get more people.   But simply a form is

<form method="post" action="https://www.mysite.com/receive.php">
    <input name="fullname" placeholder="Your Full Name">
    <button type="submit">Submit</form>
</form>

Open in new window


If you let  us know what you want on a simple form and if you have the ability to accept it we can help.

You can also use  Google docs https://drive.google.com  Click Create, then Form.  You will get a form and wizard to help you create a spreadsheet to accept the data.
