How to make a form

This is a beginners tutorial on making web forms.

Let us first see the working of a web form.

A form has two parts: the client-side and the server-side.

PHP form processing

PHP Form Validation Tutorial

Client-side form validations help in giving immediate feedback to the user. It is also required to add server side form validation in your form processing script. The user can disable Javascript on their server or even auto-bots might try to submit your form as well.

The server side form validations help keeping the form submission data consistent. The validations also help in lesser server side errors. For example, if you have set length limit in the database for a text input, it is better to do the validation before it actually gets cut off by the database system or even getting an error thrown.
