Some of the more interesting things you could put on your website…

You can use forms to collect data from your visitors. Once collected, the data could be emailed to you, or stored in a database. In this example, we’re storing the data in a database. Once in the database, the owner of the website could view data from the table in a special webpage, accessible only to them.

Below is an example of a form and the owner’s view of the data stored from the form. If you fill in the simple form in the left tab and submit it, you can then click on the right tab and see your form data at the top of the table of submissions.

* mandatory fields

Arrival Date Duration of stay (days) Room Type Date and time of booking

You could use tabs, to help keep your data in logical sections and also fit a lot on one page.

The sections of this page are organised in tabs. Move your cursor over this paragraph to highlight them.

Or you could use the structure shown below, which is called an accordion in the web development world.

What is an accordion?

An accordion is another way of overlaying several bits of information in the same area.

How does it work?

When you click on a section header, that section opens and the previously open section closes.

When would it be used?

It’s an attractive way of presenting quite a lot of information when you have a limited amount of space to do it in. (Obviously, in this example all the information could be shown at once, but it’s only a demo!)

OK, I’ll admit it, this is a bit of an excuse to have a few more photos of Alfie and Pebbles! But a picture gallery like the one on this page can be useful on many types of site.
