[Done!] Join Us! form
« on: October 19, 2006, 01:10:13 PM »
I am looking for some kind of form - when the form is submitted it should create new thread in specific forum.

I think somebody should have it - seems to be simple - unfortunatelly I am not PHP expert :(

Thank you in advance

*************  UPDATE ******************

OK I did it by myself  :laugh: - my first TP block and even my first PHP code

The HOW TO is located >>>here<<<<

Updated code by JPDeni will be posted here:

Example here: http://www.exiledglory.com/forums/index.php top left menu click the join us then click the join us on the bottom of the article.

It doesn't require that you go in and change the code to specify email to send to. It's made to use the css styling and theme of your forum. It works with the permissions system of SMF.

Frankly, your request wasn't something that could be answered as it lacked a lot of the definition necessary. You gave no details as to the type of form you would want to post to a thread (form values pulled from database for dropdowns and option buttons or s couple of simple fill-in-the-blank fields). You didn't say anything about hoiw it's to be used and by whom (guest posting is different from user posting). You didn't say whether the target board and topic is or is not something the submitter would/should have access to in order to edit.
