Many newbie web designers want a way to put a contact form on their website but do not know how. Allowing visitors to contact you through your website is an important way to both allow quick contact and also helps to eliminate spam by hiding your email address from spambots. Unfortunately, many newbies attempt to use the "mailto" scheme as their form's action. This is bad for many reasons. Still others use what is called "Matt's Formmail" script for their form's action. This has been regarded as unsafe and certain versions of that script has "become a favorite tool of spammers".
I've created a very simple and easy to use contact form system for use on some of my sites and it is now available as a download complete with instructions. This "system" comes with the complete code for the form, the script, and the redirect.
