I am a 'newbi' when it comes to building webpages. I have experience with computer graphics and with many programs like pagemaker, coreldraw and photoshop. Due to financial constraints,I decided to build my own website using a program similar to desktop publishing software. I chose BlueVoda because of it’s ‘BlueVoda website builder’. I have had a few problems but the wonderful support staff of BlueVoda helped me to correct them. For that I am grateful. I have designed an extremely simple one page site that’s only mission is to find homebuyers and collect their homebuying criteria and of course their email address. I have only one problem left to fix before I can begin to market this site. When perspective buyers submit their criteria, they get two security warnings. By using the BlueVoda forums and knowledge base, I have found out that I need to use an ‘index.php page’. I am not able to use this information. I have one page with one small form. Do I have to put the form on a second page? Do I simply make my original webpage a php page? The answers in the forums consist of placing script into the site. I think the ‘website builders’ write scripts for people who don’t understand scripts. Does BlueVoda website builder have a feature that solves this problem. As you can see, I am very lost . Can anyone please give me a step-by-step ‘analysis/how to’ rid my site’s reporting system of the security warnings? I have watched the forms tutorials many, many time and have spent hours trying to fix this problem with information in the forums .
Please Help.

Please read Basics about Forms (http://www.vodahost.com/vodatalk/bluevoda-tips-tricks-shortcuts/4363-basics-about-forms.html) I think this will clear things. If you need further help, make up your form in it's final version, and post back, with the form URL, so i can check it and give you a script

Dear ,
I have gone through the tutorials and read everything but I still am lost.
I have connected my form to a php feedback page. It does not work. Do I need the email
Account to be a vodahost email? I am so lost and the cost of not having the site up
will be great if I waste much more time. I plan to market the site using google
or yahoo ‘pay per click’. I may need to hire someone to finish the job.
This is my sites url
