Creating forms/tables for WP (5 posts)

    I am new, 2 months now, to WP and blogging, and this is my first post to the forum.

    I have my site up and running now. I LOVE WP, and first want to thank everyone who has had a part in it's creation and support. I hope someday to help with it myself, as I learn to make my own themes and plugins.

    I searched first to look for information on creating forms for WP. Have not found what I need. I want to be able to do 2 things.
    1- create a form for my websites to capture information that the veiwer can imput, and be able to save it for my use. Example, filling in an application.
    2- create a form/table, that is tied into a database. One example, I want to collect information on plants and trees, etc. Imput it into a table/form that is searchable. Columns could be: Common Name | Latin Name | Annual | Bi-annual | Perinial | Propagation Method | etc. I would gather and imput the info, and the visitor could view it, and search it. Just like an MS Access file.

    How do I do this? Is this already in place in WP? Where do I find the information?

    Again, thank you all for your help and support.

    None of them seem to be a WP-specific question.
    It's about writing code, programming, knowing php and mysql...
    When you have a working script you can ask how to "combine" it with WP.

    Yosemite,
    Maybe you misunderstood my question. I'm not looking for forms in emails. I want it for my wp site. For imputing info on my site and to display it on my site. Like an access database and queries.

    Thanks though.

    Hi I have posted elsewhere trying to achieve this same thing, I'm sure it must exsist. Blog reader request info re a specific post and the form contents go into a database and can be emailed to a variety of email addresses. Have you had any success with this ?
