Hello All,


I've been attempting to build a guest access sign up Database, to allow clients to sign up for access to a studio space on campus.


I have FMPS13 running on a mac Mini.


I've been attempting to do this via webdirect and it has been working, but I've run accross some issues with web direct, especially if the browswer window gets refreshed and the record being viewed changes to another persons record when the web page refreshes.


Also in the URL address it shows in web direct record=10 in the URL address. if you change the 10 to say 20 and hit return, it refreshes the page to the databases record #20.


So I'm thinking which option say php or xml would be best to make a simple web page with, first name, last name, address, city, state, zip.... those types of fields for someone go to in a web browser and fill out a form and hit submit button. No other scripts except, submit, no finds, no sorts.



Thoughts. I'm a total newbie to web design. So I was hoping that web direct would work but it may not be what I need.
