Hi,

I'm wanting to create a system in which people can submit information in a form, and then it upload onto a page.

What I mean by this is that for each submission, it will go onto a place, in which it can be searched using a simple search box.

Each submission would not need to have it's own page, because it's not possible to automatically create pages with Yola (Is it?), just be able to be searched.

Hopefully it is possible, and that you understand me,

Kind Regards,
Amar

Amar,

A really good solution to this issue is to use Google Forms on Google Apps. If a person fills out your Google created form, the data is then stored on a spreadsheet within Google Apps. This is easily searched and although not online on your website it is connected and easily accessed.

You can then manually copy the spreadsheet periodically as an html formatted spreadsheet and place it directly on your web-page. A simple search facility would easily locate a record online from this.

Similar solutions are available with many of the other form providers as they store the incoming data in a spreadsheet format which then allows you to use Excel or another spreadsheet solution to locate the data.

I do run Google Apps for my email and Blog, so that might be a viable option, I'll look into how I could make it work.
