CGI/PHP form to a post (3 posts)

    Is there a way (or a plugin) to take data from a webbased form and have it parsed into a WordPress Post?

    Here is what I want to do. I would like to have the form at http://www.kidseatfree.com/submit , when filled out, make an automatic posting into the WordPress blog.

    Currently it posts (a CGI post, not a WP post) to a PERL script which gets parsed into a propriatory data base as shown here:
    '
    <form METHOD="POST" ACTION="cgi-bin/kidsubmit.cgi">
    '

    But I could easily change the HTML to have it post to a PHP script or a plugin.

    Any ideas?

    This plugin will allow for a form to processed into a draft.

    That's a cool plugin, but it only does the form with two fields. One called Title and one called Text.

    I'd like to be able to use my custom form.
