FormMail++ is a next generation html form handler inspired by the cgi script first developed by Matt Wright. When Matt first introduced FormMail in 1995, web hosting was expensive and cgi was inaccessible to most users. FormMail’s novelty was converting form data into email. Today, hosting is cheap but HTML has evolved far beyond the basic markup of the 1990s. The novelty of FormMail++ is that its output is visually identical to the submitting form.  It does this by reading the form page directly from the server’s file system, replacing the <form>...</form> content with a confirmation report, and returning the reconstructed page to the visitor’s web browser. Users never leave the main website, never see popups or new tabs, and never have to navigate backward nor follow return links after submission. Continue reading “FormMail++”
