You would need some sort of server side processing. I'm using an HTML form with a CGI script. I think it is something you can do in PHP but don't quote me as I've never used it. It can be done in ASP.NET too.

Yes, PHP, ASP, ASP.net, Ruby and I believe all other server-side langauges can be used to take form input and use it.

You will also want to have a database of some sort. I suggest MySQL ass it is seen quite often, but you could use a number of other databases as well.

If all you know is html you will either have to learn PHP with some database connection stuff or I recommend using an engine already built for you like Wordpress.

PHP isn't that hard to learn. Given a couple of days (or weeks depending on how much time you have) you could probably get something working nicely.

I didn't mean to offend you or doubt your skills, just saying, PHP is a server side, Object oriented language that's completely different from PHP. Not saying you can't do it. I just attempted something along the same lines as you're doing. Except I built an entire blog engine from PHP. However with the time it takes I actually found it better to use wordpress due to the plugin system that they have and the number of plugins. This would take weeks and weeks of a professional development team to built something equivalent. So why waste your time when there is a really really good system already out there?

Cheers
