hello everyone,

I am brand new to php and mysql. I have developed some basic personal web pages in th past using FrontPage but nothing extremely complicated.

I have purchased a beginner's and have begun looking through it, but am curious about the actual form development inside PHP. Can I use a tool such as frontpage or dreamweaver to create what i want and then somehow "connect it" to php and mysql or does everything ususally get created by me doing the coding myself??

Again, i know that this is a dumb question that I will look back on in 6 months and laugh at, but right now, i'm not laughing.

Yup.. there's no problem with doing that at all..

Create the form in whatever, and normally it will ask you to input the "action" filed ( looks like <form action="somephpfile.php"> )

As you can notice, that's where the "hook up" happens [=
