In this video, you will review the basics of the structure and function of HTML forms, and add a sample form to the project.
- [Instructor] In this chapter, we will learn to use PHP…to build pages which have forms for submitting data,…and we'll begin, by reviewing the basics of HTML forms…and then adding some forms to our project.…There are two main ways in which we can interact…with websites using the HTTP protocol.…The first is what we've been doing in the last few movies…and that is, GET requests.…Whenever you type a URL into your browser bar…or when you click on a link, you're going to be issuing…a GET request for the server,…and it's called GET because the idea is…that we're getting back information.…
We're making a request to read information…back from the server.…Forms work differently, because with forms,…we're not just reading data back,…we want to submit data to the server,…so they use a different method, they use POST.…So those are the two main ways that we communicate…with the web server.…They're not the only ones…but they're by far and away the most common.…Links allow us to GET data; forms allow us to POST data.…This is what a basic HTML form looks like,…
