Hello to everyone.First I'd like to welcome everyone and let you know I'm building quite possibly an advanced website. I just needed help with a few tweaks, so first let me tell you about my host.First my host does not allow PHP/SQL/CGI or other server side code. So, I'm in need of some help because I'm trying to do a lot;I need forms on my website, the forms functionality is to be a guest list sign up to events. I need the data from the form to give to the event host, is this possible to do without PHP/SQL/CGI? If so, how would i create the forms and use the data from them?Secondly am in need of a calendar, but stumped on this one completely. I want to show event information on the calendar.I feel I could be asking a lot, but everything I have learned so far is self-taught without mentoring or help thus far. I am guessing I need to learn about client-side code?

You could hard-code a calendar using a table. But if the calendar needs to be updated, you would be happier with a database. Likewise, there is no way to process form data without server-side scripting.You either need to get access to server side processing or look at your project a different way.

sounds like you need to get a better host. It doesn't help to be working on a project more advanced than your environment.

Well my host does offer Javascript, but I'm not sure that's going to help much.Hmmm.. Well thanks for your help, both of you. I might need to reconsider where I host then.

:) Now you've got to define host. A lot of "hosts" use the facebook or blogspot model, and they forbid JS because it can lead to XSS and other evils. Edited by Deirdre's Dad
