Sorry, this should be
(:input form action="http:/example.com/mailman/subscribe/my-list" method=POST:)
To join our mailing list,\\
enter your email address\\
and press Subscribe:
(:input text email style="width: 90px;" size="30" value="">\\
(:input submit name="email-button" value="Subscribe":)
Using input markup does not mean you have to use a PmWiki form
processing script, like Fox or PmForm. The markup is just helping to
build a form. Which script is processing it depends on the
'form action=.....' parameter.
Fox does not use this (:input form action=... :) markup, but uses a
custom (:fox formname ...:) markup instead. PmForm does likewise.
But both result in HTML which has a
<input form action=$ScriptUrl method=POST> and a
<input hidden action .....> tag
which makes pmwiki.php the processing script, using a ?action=...
parameter. In Fox case this is action=foxpost, which calls the main
Fox function to process the input.
I hope this helps a bit in clarifying the use of input form elements.
