    Hi all

    is there anyway that I can have a page with an email form (I use aweber) that has a submit button but when the user fills out the form and hit submit they are being subscribed to multiple lists

    Preferably not all on aweber but on my own auto responder lists located on different domains (Loads of them)

    Hope that makes sense and hope a smart programmer is laughing at how tecky noooooooobish I am and comes back with a simple working answer

    I have a few ideas for this if possible

    oscar....

    yes. You can create a custom form which submits the data to a worker process that then posts those details to all the other forms you specify. This is of course if there are no captchas to get in the way...

    I used to do something like this. I used Java script. I first made numerous forms to submit to each whatever, then used style sheet to make all forms but first one hidden. When you filled out one you were filling out all forms. You really only need 2 forms. One to go to Aweber, and one to go to your worker process like genie1 said.

    it would be a hell of a lot easier to make a server side script to do the multiple submits for you, using the information from a single form submit.

    If you don't have to adhere to any Awebber guidelines, howdoyou is right. When I did my script, I had to have my page conform to certain requirements for the first submit.

    thats essentially the same thing as the child/worker process we were mentioning.
    This is a simple "provisioning" concept which has been done many times before...
