Hello,

I have a wedding coming up and wanted to handle our reservations (aka RSVP) online. My question is, does anyone know a good way to create a form that we can use to collect RSVP info? I'm also hoping to have a report that I can use from the admin section to view the RSVP data.

I've tried PHP Form Generator, but I didn't like it's flexability. I'm kinda of hoping for a one-off source code sample, but would take assistance in any form.

Any help that you can provide would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

Jeff.

Oh yeah, I suppose I left something off my previous post. By my description I'm obviously thinking that the RSVP form and report would post/get data from a geeklog database table.

However, if there was a way to also email the form results to a specific email address that would be great too!

I hope someone out there has some thoughts on this...

take a look at blaine's gl_events plugin at portalparts.com
glFusion - Technology Fused with Style - www.gllabs.org

Yeah, Blaine's glEvents premium plugin is pretty amazing. However, it appears to necessitate that people using it must be logged in users of the GL site; this isn't something that I imagine all our wedding guests will actually be.

I've also took a look at PHP Surveyor last night, but the admin facility to assemble a survey/rsvp form was a bit difficult to comprehend.

So, unless someone's got something available or a nice set of code that's re-useable I suppose I'll just have to buckle down and figure out some PHP code.

Any thoughts?

Alright, I've put cobbled together some code that I've found online, but I'm still having some problems. Here's what I've got:
PHP Formatted Code
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">

if($_POST['submit']) //If submit is hit

   //then connect as user
   //change user and password to your mySQL name and password
   //global $_TABLES;
   mysql_connect("localhost",USER_EDITED_OUT,PWD_EDITED_OUT);
       
   //select which database you want to edit
   mysql_select_db("DB_EDITED_OUT");
       
   //convert all the posts to variables:

Any ideas why this code isn't posting to the database?

Ok, now I've managed to submit data from my RSVP form into the database. I created a static page with an iframe within it that links to the following page of code:
PHP Formatted Code
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="Javascript">
function validate() {
   if (!(rsvpform.accept[0].checked || rsvpform.accept[1].checked)) {
      alert('Please select either Accept or Decline, thanks!');
      event.returnValue=false;
   }
   else {
      rNv=rsvpform.name.value;
      if (rNv=='') {
         alert('Please enter your name so we can properly track responses, thanks!');
         event.returnValue=false;
      }
   }
}
</SCRIPT>

That code successfully loads all the data into my database correctly. Now, I'm trying to design a simple report that'll pull out the data and display it in a simple table format. Here's the code that I have so far:
PHP Formatted Code
<TABLE>
<TR>
<TD>Accept</TD>
<TD>Title</TD>
<TD>Name</TD>
<TD>Entree</TD>
<TD>Shuttle</TD>
<TD>Flight</TD>
<TD>Transport</TD>
<TD>Email</TD>
<TD>Comments</TD>
</TR>
<?
   //connect as user
   //global $_TABLES;
   mysql_connect("localhost",USER_EDITED_OUT,PWD_EDITED_OUT);
       
   //select which database you want to display from
   mysql_select_db("DB_EDITED_OUT");
       
   //Insert the values into the correct database with the right fields
   //mysql table = gl_rsvp
   //table columns = rsvp_id, accept, title, name, entree, shuttle, flight, transport, email, comments
   //post variables = $rsvp_id, $accept, $title, $name, $entree, $shuttle, $flight, $transport, $email, $comments

//   $result=MYSQL_QUERY("INSERT INTO gl_rsvp (rsvp_id,accept,title,name,entree,shuttle,flight,transport,email,comments)"."VALUES ('NULL', '$accept', '$title', '$name', '$entree', '$shuttle', '$flight', '$transport', '$email', '$comments')");


   $result = MYSQL_QUERY("SELECT accept, title, name, entree, shuttle, flight, transport, email, comments FROM {$_TABLES['gl_rsvp']}");
   while ($A = DB_fetchArray($result)){
      $retval .= '<p>' . $A['accept'] . '</p>';
   }
   return $retval;
?>
</TABLE>

 

It doesn't seem to function properly. Does anyone have any input? I'd be greatly appreciative of any help, thanks!
