Web Forms

On my ETP Marketing site I have converted over my existing storefront to Prestashop, an open source e-commerce solution. I tend to like using Open Source Software since I can generally modify it to suite my needs plus there is usually no shortage of talented people contributing with theme, plug-ins, and extended functionality.  That’s why I’ve been using WordPress for all these years and I see PrestaShop on the same path.

I have begun adding a few web forms to my store over the past week.  I will try to add a form each week. I had considered creating the forms using Flex or FlashBuilder but given the fact that the audience I’m targeting for these forms are people who may not be actual developers.  They could be people who may be building their first website or they’re only familiar with the basic HTML development IDE’s like Dreamweaver or NVU .

Whatever the case, I am creating these forms such that they don’t require a database and come with instructions allowing the user to easily customize and upload the code to their site.  A typical example is this contact form I added today.
