I have created a seurevy for a website using an html form. The idea is for people to provide feedback and use the radio buttons and checkboxes.
Do I need to know a programming language in order for the server to process the form? Can anyone explain how this works and what i need to do?
I don't think you'll be able to get round doing a bit of coding, I'm afraid.
PHP is probably a good choice for the job. It's installed on most hosting environments and it's easy to get started with.
Also, if you Google "PHP survey tutorial" you get a whle bunch of hits and even some ready made scripts.
This might be quite a good place to start: http://net.tutsplus.com/tutorials/php/creating-a-web-poll-with-php/
If it's something you have never done, it might be best to find an app such as Survey Monkey (which SitePoint often uses) and let it do the work for you.
Here is a pretty good tutorial for a PHP contact form. You will have to modify the form fields to your needs but it will get you started,
Hope that helps,
Man that guy likes forms. His site has about 100 tuts all about forms.
I would suggest if you are not so good with php and other languages, you can use other quiz creating softwares which create quiz and then you can simply create the quiz in HTML Format or download it as zip file and upload to your directory using ftp.
I have used Tanida quiz maker.
Also, Proquiz is a good software.
Let me know if you need any other assistance.
