    Need to create a very simple form that sets a cookie

    Asked by Peter on March 22, 2012 at 03:20 PM

    I need to create a very simple form page. The page would list terms and conditions of usage of an internet connection. The person would type their full name into a single field, check off a checkbox for "I agree to the terms and conditions", and would then click "submit". This action should set a cookie in their browser that would then allow them to bypass this page the next time they connect to the internet. Their name, the checkbox "answer", and their IP address should then be saved to a MySQL database.

    Is this something that JotForm can handle? If so, are there any tutorials available that would explain how I can set up such a form?

    In order to insert your terms and conditions you can use the Free Text Html tool, you can find it under Power Tools

    Here you have an example on how it would look like

    In order for you to get the IP addresses, names and type of  answers , you can go to Submissions and then set what fields you would like to have included


    Regarding to your Mysql request, kindly refer to this guide
