    I want to make a form where people submit ideas on my blog and then I post on them.

    I'm wondering how to make a form, that goes on a page or any page that collects details much like a forum signup. That way when they submit it, it goes to my email and I can post about it.

    Thanks Guys!

    Try Gravity forms. There is a download somewhere on here. For me, the best form creator currently out there. Easy to set up also.
    The forms can be manipulated to the style you need, this assuming you are using wordpress of course!

    I use contact form 7 and another plugin called postie. Once the user submits in the contact form is is then automatically emailed to a email address. Postie then checks that email address as often as i want it to, gets the email and posts it in my wordpress as a draft. I go in and check and publish it.

    I have heard alot of people speak about gravity forms here on BHW thou.

    +1 Contact form 7
    You can set it up on any page. You might wanna install captcha with it though, to keep out the spam.

    I also use Contact Form 7, and definitely do install some sort of captcha on it. You can do the easy "answer a question" kind (I ask if they're human).
