I have a joomla 1.5 site with a customized series of Question/Answer forms I created that stores user's input into a stand alone database (not Joomla's). I did NOT do this by creating a module or component. I am new to web development and just did the simplest way possible.
The Project: Securing the forms using Joomla features to accomplish this.
The custom app is currently working. It uses AJAX to submit the form and then uses a lightbox to display the work they just saved.
I need someone to both do the work of securing the forms (at least the first one) AND walking me through the basic concepts (using screen sharing such as GoToMeeting). To my understanding, the best way is to use Joomla's built in features for this.
If you are an expert at Joomla and securing forms, AND you don't mind connecting screens to TEACH me the basics, I'd like to hear from you :-)
