Quick and Simple Form Creator for PHP

by Keith D Commiskey

Welcome to the quick and simple Form-a-Form creator for PHP!

Form-a-Form is live again, as of August 17, 2017, and is now open to Everyone!

As of Sep 8, 2018, I have done my best to upgrade the code to PHP 7.2 specs.

If you find any PHP ^7.x discrepancies, or have input on a 'best practices' adjustment (please be specific; I'm actually more of a front-end tech type :)), you can use the form below to let me know.

Form-a-Form will allow you to create a form that you can use as a template, or rather, as a really great start for your forms. It not only generates the HTML code for the form, but generates the PHP query aspects of the form as well. It is quite simply to get you started, and get all the monotonous and boring form tags setup stuff out of the way up front, allowing you to concentrate more on the analytical design concept and form tweaking instead.

What this form does is ask for some information that will help layout your form, then provide the html code for you to use.

Although you don't have to use the database storage and retrieval functionality that form-a-form provides, if you do, form-a-form currently only supports PHP and MySQL database integration. However, as form-a-form is intended as only a get-you-started application anyway, you can (and most likely will) tweak the final code to your liking and needs anyway.

    Form-a-form will provide the code for:

  1. The initial form (form preview), as a user would see it when they first arrived,
  2. The form as it would be if the form were posted back to itself (end user), and
  3. A link to my Database Record Selector and Editor (DB-RSE) which allows for editing of recorded data (admin).


Cost for using Form-a-Form:
Free! (it's also open source)

I have open-sourced this code on GitHub: https://github.com/KDCinfo/form-a-form

Additionally, I have opened up this online form generator to the general public (effective August 17, 2017).

Click the `Create Your Form!` button above to begin generating your own form.
