hello all- i'm updating an old website and they have a sort of self-serve reseravtion system for their ski club. members fill out a reservation form then when submitted, the simple text data shows up on this other page that they can access to see reservations that are already made. It seems like a simple thing to set up but i can't figure out how they did it. i have the new site and form set up in dreamweaver but i can't figure out how to coax the completed form data into another page.

 

here's the old site info:

randolphskiclub.org

reservation page: http://randolphskiclub.org/secure/reservationpage.shtml

data page: http://randolphskiclub.org/secure/reservationout.txt

password: skiRSC2018

 

any help/clues would be greatly appreciated.

When the form is submitted, the action page - http://randolphskiclub.org/secure/reservation.cgi - handles the process. I assume that it enters the data into the text document.

to be clear, get the new form to similarly send the data to a text file or html page.

You can set the action page such as

<form action=/secure/reservation.cgi method="POST">

and it will do the same as it does currently.

I haven't touched Perl / CGI in ages.  A list was published in 2014 of the 5 programming languages marked for death: Perl, Ruby, Visual Basic, Flash and Pascal.

 

PHP was inspired by Perl. Nowadays, PHP is preferred over Perl for web applications.  Since you're rebuilding the site anyway, this might be a good opportunity to upgrade your form processing scripts, too.
