I am trying to work out how to create and use a data base driven form using the PHP Code Widget and putting it (via shortcode) into the main section of a page or post. Has anyone done this successfully? Does anyone have code examples?
Creating the data-base driven form has been no problem for me. The part that is not so clear to me is how best to handle the form data (which I am sending back with a POST). I know how to do that in a standard PHP page entirely outside of WordPress. I am not sure, however, how (or if) that is going to work in this case. I am about to try that, but I thought I'd also ask here to see if anyone has already done that and can help steer me in the right direction.
Any help or suggestions would be most appreciated. Thanks.
