Automatic text field creator.

Automatic text field creator.


OK, so im a little bit new to php and I found that the best way to learn is to ask questions.


Ok, so im in need of building this feature. The idea is that a user could add another text field just by clicking a link.


He would add information into the textbox, and click the submit button. After he hits the submit button it would add the information into a tinymce WYSIWYG editor.


The only thing im having trouble with is how to build the feature that will add another text box..


Any information on where I  can learn how to do this would be awesome.


Check below for some example pictures.

Is the text in these inputs ('Hello#') the name for the new field or is this the information that will populate the new field?


In any case, unless you want to do a POST (click a 'Submit' button and refresh the page) it looks like you're looking for jQuery, which will allow you to manipulate DOM elements on the fly.
