PHP Contact Form with HTML & Simple CAPTCHA Free Download

Finding a simple PHP contact form with a working, equally simple CAPTCHA that you can style to match your website design isn’t as easy as you might think. So I decided to offer my own solution as a free download. This contact form will allow the user to send the inputted details to a specified email address – this address can be an email address linked to your website or a stand-alone email like Gmail – it works with either.

Once installed, the webmaster has the included ability to make certain fields mandatory with a warning message to the user to go back and try again if they fail to fill our all the required fields. While the CAPTCHA is as simple as it could be and has effectively eliminated spam from bots filling out my forms 100%. Yes, that’s right – a 100% success rate. That’s because Fizz Web Design is a small company and isn’t under the same sort of scrutiny as larger companies like Tesco or Amazon.

Should Designers Now Make Responsive Websites as Standard?

When I first started making websites, we were basically just evolving from adding style code to the HTML file rather than adding it neatly to a separate CSS file and linking to it. As soon as we managed to put that one to bed, the looming horror of multi-sized screens became a reality (or nightmare if you prefer!) leaving us with more work to do to get the same end result – a website that works well.

Make CSS Background Image Fit Dimensions of Div

Using in-line styling, you can adjust the size of an image in your HTML code; but it often poses a problem for coders when they require a background image to be resized to fit the constraints of an existing div.

Why would you want to do this, you may ask? Well one example of usage would be when using an image as a send button perhaps or more likely these days – when using responsive design where your div will respond to the size of the user’s browser (desktop, iPhone, Android, Tablet, iPad etc etc).
