Since CGI and PHP scripts aren't available yet for Yola.com, which scripting languages are available? I'm looking to take input from the Form Widget and export the data into a file of any type at this point but can't without either CGI or PHP scripts.

Hi there Terry,

Unfortunately, at this time, scripting languages like ASP and PHP cannot be added to your website through the Sitebuilder.

The reason for this is that both these languages work by delivering and acting upon files which actually remain offsite and stay located on the host server. Given the broad spectrum and possibilities of actions that these languages are capable of, and then combined with the fact that constant input into the Yola hosting servers would be required- there is a degree of damage that could be done and it poses a security and stability threat to the websites of Yola users.

I am sorry I can't be of more help with this.
