  1. What I'm trying to do IS a simple task: just have the form send me a simple email with the email address the subscriber put in. I've said nothing about email lists, creating templates and whatnot. And if there were no simple tasks that could be solved by copy and paste then why would W3Schools have loads of "try it yourself" copy and paste solutions just like the link 'dsonesuk' suggested? Read 5 tutorials? I already have the form page ready to go, all I need is a how-to for configuring the file already provided by the suggested link.
  2. 'dsonesuk', thank you for responding. :-) In the W3 link the first example seems easy enough. So do I make a .php file (with any name on it I guess?) and then upload that along with the form files? What would have to be modified in that example file to refer to the form, and/or the other way around? Daniel
  3. Hi, it's been awhile since I've posted here. Maybe that's a good thing in that I guess I'm doing things right? :-) Anyway, something that I find confusing is the "process input" when it comes to forms. An example would be a subscription form. Many, many designs out there on the web but few of their authors explain simply how to get the form to work. And by work I mean how to direct the form info to a particular email. In this case it would obviously be an email of mine where I could receive the subscriber's email address. Here is the html code section for a subscription form: <body> <section class="subscribe"> <div class="subscribe-pitch"> <h3>Subscribe</h3> <p>Subscribe to our newsletter to get the latest scoop right to your inbox.<p> </div> <form action="index.html" method="post" class="subscribe-form"> <input type="email" name="email" class="subscribe-input" placeholder="Email address" autofocus> <button type="submit" class="subscribe-submit">Subscribe</button> </form> </section> </body> It looks really good, I've customized it, etc. Now all I need to know is where to place the email where the info is sent. I think it might be a separate PHP page on the server but not sure. I hope someone here has a simple solution. For those wanting more specifics, here is the page from where I got the code. You'll notice in the comments section others asking this same question yet the author doesn't answer. Thank You for any help. Daniel

    Submenu where art thou?

    I haven't uploaded my page yet but here is the page I've been working from. You can get the source code and css from it. Notice the chapter 1-5 titles. I just want a dropdown from one or two of them and if possible that they show in the collapsed mobile view. As to whether in the mobile view they show fixed or with dropdown I'm not sure if that's automatic or requires other code.. http://dbushell.github.io/Responsive-Off-Canvas-Menu/step4.html#
  5. Hi, first post. Recently I discovered Dave Bushell's Off Canvas menu. His description of it is here: https://www.smashingmagazine.com/2013/01/off-canvas-navigation-for-responsive-website/ It's a nice menu and I've been able to incorporate it into a website. But what I have been trying to do yet not able is to figure for submenu(s) dropdowns from the categories. An example of this is the W3 Schools simple css dropdowns: http://www.w3schools.com/css/css_dropdowns.asp The coding is simple enough and I thought I could use it for Bushell's menu. When I did so the submenus appear on the page like the other categories. When collapsed to mobile the submenus show (fixed, not where you click/touch for dropown) so in that sense it's okay since for the moment I don't need that many submenus. So, the thing is how can I code it for a simple dropdown when you hover over a category? I've tried different methods along with the W3 example but I usually end up with things like half the dropdowns showing, the submenus showing in the collapsed part but with erratic styling completely different than what is originally there, and so on. I'm sure for someone here on the forum it's a breeze to do this but for me it's been a little on the windy side. :-) Thanks for any help and suggestions. Daniel
