Support » Plugin: Insert PHP » PHP With Forms

  • Good Morning,

    I just installed your plugin and having it working fine with some sample code you provided.

    I have very little/zero PHP experience so forgive me if I’m asking some pretty obvious questions.

    I have some php code that will allow me to send my html form to a mysql database. In the html form I am referencing “gamesheet.php” and the php script is called “gamesheet.php”.

    How can I make the html form execute using php code written with the “insert php” plug-in?

    SAMPLE HTML Header:
    <h2>Home Team</h2>
    <form action=”gamesheet.php” method=”POST”>Team Name:

    If I understand your question correctly, this is what you have:

    ~ A form.

    ~ A separate PHP script to process the form when it is submitted. The PHP script updates a MySQL database that is not the same database as WordPress uses.

    My recommendation is to install the PHP script separately. Then put the form on a WordPress post or page.

    The form can then submit to the PHP script directly (the form tag’s action attribute value being the absolute URL to gamesheet.php, like ).

    Then you won’t need to embed the script into a WordPress post or page. Less hassle 🙂

    Let me know if I didn’t understand your question.
