I have a html website for my business which suits me fine.

I have just found a really nice php script for an enquiry form and would like to add it to my site on an exsiting html page.

Is this possible without turning it into php page as this would change the url from contact.html to contact.php and i dont want to do that.

So the main question is how to go about achieving this?

    It is possible to allow PHP code in the .html files using .htaccess. I have never done this so I do not know the code but it should be possible to find it in google easily.

    If you don't want to change html file to php file then you put <form> tag into your contact.html file
    then you need to write php file to recieve data from contact.html and redirect to thankyou.html or page which you want.

    Hello Nealh,

    Firstly create a contact.php page and paste your script which have you found. Upload it on server then use this code in .htaccess file

    "RewriteRule ^contact.html$ contact.php [L]"

      There's a good chance you will have problems. If not right now, then the next time php is updated. I tried this a couple of years ago. Altogether I got about 6 different versions of ways to do it with the .htaccess file. 3 from this forum, and 3 from my host.

      None of them worked on my site. Apparently they had worked on earlier versions of php.

      It's certainly worth trying. If it does work, let us know, but I'm losing my interest in doing it this way. Personally I'm just going to use redirects and change my remaining html pages over that way. It has the advantage that while I'm at it, I can reorganize with more folders.
