Well... i have create one that kind of works. When I was teseting it, I hit the "submit" button, it automatically goes to my e-mail address so I can send the comment. How do I stop it doing this?

i want the feedback to go to an e-mail address... (but i dont want them to have to send it via their e-mail, after pressing submit). or maybe you know of a better way of doing it?

You need a script to send the email. Does your webhost support a server-side language such as PHP, ASP, CGI, etc?

Erm... maybe? probably? I'm using Angelfire to host the site at the moment, but have plans to move it to a proper domain name.

This is for AngelFire only.
Create the form in HTML.
Set the form tag to:
<FORM ACTION="/cgi-bin/script_library/form_handler_mail" METHOD=POST>
Use a hidden form field to specify your email addy
<INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="email_to" VALUE="[email protected]">
and another hidden field to specify where they will be redirected after submitting the form
<INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="end_display" VALUE="http://www.YOURLINK.com">
