The Action attribute is crucial. It means, “Where do you want the form
sent?”. If you miss it out, your form won’t get sent anywhere. You can
send the form data to another PHP script, the same PHP script, an email address,
a CGI script, or any other form of script.
In PHP, a popular technique is to send the script to the same page that the
form is on send it to itself, in other words. We’ll use that technique
first, but you’ll see both techniques in action.
So you need to change the form you have been creating in the previous
sections, the one that should be called basicForm.php. Locate the following,
and amend the ACTION line to this:
<Form Name =”form1″ Method =”POST”
ACTION = “basicForm.php”>
So we’re going to be sending the form data to exactly the same page as the
one we have loaded to itself. We’ll put some PHP on the page to handle
the form data. But for now, save your work again and then click your submit
button. You won’t see anything different, but you shouldn’t see any error
Once your script has an Action attribute set, you can
then Submit it. Which we’ll see in the next part.
