Forms perform an essential function in modern websites, making it possible to gather information from users and validate that information. In this course, Adobe Certified Expert Candyce Mairs shows how to create forms to email user information and validate user data using various methods of form validation. These validation methods include client-side, server-side, and custom validation; CAPTCHA images; and Spry validation fields. You'll also see how to set up a PHP testing environment and preview PHP pages in Dreamweaver. Along the way you'll build your skills in areas like using admin consoles, commenting code, working with variables and includes, and much more.
Welcome to this course on working with website forms, using Dreamweaver. My name is Candyce Mairs, I'm a web designer, web developer Adobe Certified Expert, and Adobe Certified Instructor. You can get more information about me at my website. I'm completely self taught so I know how hard it is to make that jump out of pure static pages into interactive pages using a server side language. I'll walk you through the steps of making your forms active and getting those forms, sending information via email, and also validating them. This course is for anyone who wants to better understand how to work with forms and create action scripts in a server side environment. A form is the only way to collect data from a user, and we want to gather that data and have a way to work with it.
So let's get started working with forms and setting up our testing environment.
