      Instant Web Publishing: Mailing List Sign Up

      Your post

           Hi, I am a long time FM user but first time to web publish. I am simply trying to give my web customers a way to sign up to my mailing list and want to keep their info on a FM Pro 12 db. I cannot figure out how to hide records so that I do not inadvertantly publish private info. I would like to show the form without the ability to display records, allow new record insertion, then hide that record.  Can this be done?

               One way is to set up a layout with global fields for each field the user needs for entering data in order to sign up. They then click a "submit" button on the layout that performs a script that creates the new record and moves the data from the global fields into corresponding fields in the new record.

               This way, there is no other data available to the user on the sign up layout except for the data they are entering into the global fields.
