Need some web guru/form help

Ok......

I either need a highly modifiable form developer or some kind of way to build a form that will take information submitted and post it to a website.

Specifically, I would like several text input forms and then a few drop down menus that output as text. I would like a captcha type security setup as well.

I can be more specific once I have a dialogue going.

In the end, I anticipate a specific and fancy craigslist type setup.

Any leads on forums or people that know how to do such a thing?

Microsoft Infopath is what i use to make forms. that is what is does specifically. im not sure about if it can be submitted to a website but it would most likely work somehow. its very easy to use and can do drop down menus and all that jazz. they even have a 60 day trial.

Interesting product, I'll have to read more about it. On brief overview, it does not seem to do the web stuff.

If infopath wont work i would give adobe dreamweaver a shot, it should definitely do what you need.

web design software, HTML editor | Adobe Dreamweaver CS4

If you need a basic html page to post to another page, all you have to do is write the code which essentially consists of a couple of lines just with different parameters.

For example:
<html>
<body>
<form method="post" action="somwhere">
Input field: <input type="text" name="sometext"><br>
Select field <select name="selecttext"><option value=1>test1</option><option value=2>Option2</optin></select>
<input type="submit" name="submit" value="submit">
</body>
</html>

This is obviously very simple code but this provides the idea. The key is to make sure that you post to the appropriate page. Also, if you don't want to post to a page but just prepopulate the page, then all you have to do is post to the page with the same field names and it will populate the page for you. Let me know if I can be of help.
