    Can I have my submissions go into my own Website database?

    I like the form but would like to have the data go into a table in my website's database directly.

    It is possible to send the form submission to your own MySQL database using PHP. However, you will need to create a script that will serve as the landing page for the receiving post data. That script will insert the submitted post data to your MySQL database. Please refer to this guide: How-to-send-Submissions-to-Your-MySQL-Database-Using-PHP
