Hi,

I have a web template from colorlib and all goes well with my low level of HTML knowledge but am stumped with the webform. I have posted HTML below which defines container size etc but need to get the webform to work and as I didnt build the 'skeleton' not sure how to get it to operate. Could one of you kind guys point me in the right direction please. For reference the contact form is at the bottom of this page www.landseerllc.com.

HTML

<section class="site-section bg-light bg-image" id="contact-section">
<div class="container">
<div class="row mb-5">
<div class="col-12 text-center">
<h2 class="section-title mb-3">Have a question or request a quote: Contact Us</h2>
</div>
</div>
<div class="row">
<div class="col-md-7 mb-5">



<form action="" class="p-5 bg-white">

<h2 class="h4 text-black mb-5">Get In Touch</h2>

<div class="row form-group">
<div class="col-md-6 mb-3 mb-md-0">
<label class="text-black" for="fname">First Name</label>

</div>
<div class="col-md-6">
<label class="text-black" for="lname">Last Name</label>

</div>

A form in itself doesn't do anything at all. To get the data actually sent to you, you need a script on the server and then you put the URL to that script as the value of the action attribute in the FORM tag, which is now empty.

How is your site hosted? Some hosts offer form handling scripts ready to plug in.

Good. It probably comes with instructions so it's easy to set up. You will need at least one other attribute in the FORM tag, method. You get to choose between POST and GET. The script is likely set up to work with one of them, but not the other, probably POST.

It fair to trust your host uses a safe script. That's a problem with downloading such a script, not all of them are secure and can for example be used by spammers to send span through your server, which will get your domain blacklisted.
