Contact form completion

Posted 26 February 2010 - 06:52 PM

Hey all, I am coding a small email form for the frontpage of this site and I am wondering if something I am wanting to do is possible.

   <div id="contact-area">
		   <label id="title" for="Name">Sign Up for the Mail list!</label>
			<form name="contactform" method="post" action="contactengine.php">
				<label for="Name">name</label>
				<input type="text" name="Name" id="Name" />
		    	<label for="Email">email</label>
				<input type="text" name="Email" id="Email" />
                <p><a href="javascript: submitform()">submit</a></p>
				<script type="text/javascript">
					function submitform()
			<div style="clear: both;"></div>

Now what I am wanting to try and attempt is that when the a user enters their name and email address and clicks submit, instead of taking them to totally new page usually "thanks.php" or something like that, to just replace the contact form with a div containing some text saying "Thanks".

This would then stay that way until the user refreshes the page.

Any ideas or resources for such a replacement method with php/js I'd really appreciate it.

You're gonna need some AJAX for what you want to do. I would suggest using JQuery as it makes things much simpler and browser compatibility is not really an issue with it. JQuery Documentation
