Hi Ralph

Hope it'll help. you have to create a table in the opencms db.
and a new key called GUESTBOOK...

Comparisons with the NewsModule Source will also help.

There are some modules src in CVS study them also and RTFM ;-) carefully.

Subject: [opencms-dev] Webform and dynamic output


I am not very experienced in dynamic web stuff. I am wondering if I can
realise the following scenario:

I have a webpage in OpenCMS. This webpage processes as soon as it is
accessed, dynamic output via a content template and a Java class which runs and
generate the dynamic output HTML and is included in this content template (like
described in the OpenCMS documantation at page 40/41 (section 2.3.2)).

Now I want another HTML website with a text field and a submit button. The
user fills out the text field and presses the submit button. The website
test.html website (also in OpenCMS) should be called.

<form method="post" name="cityeventform" action="test.html"
My name is <input type="text" name="name_input" value="bla" size="15"
I am looking for ... <input type="text" name="user_input" value="xyz"
size="25" maxlength="25"/>
<input type="submit" value="Submit"

How can the test.html website access the parameter from the text field (or
any other field in general)?

Is there are mutch more elegant method of how to do this? I am working with
5.0 RC 1...

Thanks a lot in advance!
