Anyone know how I would add an online petition to my website? I want people to be able to enter their name and address to a database (I guess), that I will be able to use at a later date. I want to be able to display the total number of signatures as the number goes up. Any ideas?

Thanks

You will need some sort of script to process the data that is submitted by a form that inserts it into a database. And then some code to retrieve the total number of entries from a database.

You may want to check hotscripts.com and see if they have an existing php petition script...

You could probably use a guest book and make it clear that entering the guest book is part of signing onto the petition.

I have never used a guest book so someone else might be able to say if this is an option or not. I believe there are guest book scripts in Fantstico in CP.
