I have an idea to add SMS functionality to a PHP website. The idea I may use is to have an HTML form, that allows the website visitor to enter a phone number and the message text. This HTML form can be submitted by clicking on a button. After submitting the form variables will be processed by a PHP script. This PHP script will post the SMS message to the an OzekiSMS Gateway (it will send and receive messages, I was suggested to use this). http://www.ozekisms.com/index.php?owpn=204
HTML Form will be used to get the recipient telephone number and the message text from the website visitors. Source of the html file:
The php script will get the recipient, message fields from the HTML form and will build a URL to send the SMS message. This URL will pass the SMS message to the OzekiSMS gateway. The URL is invoked in the PHP script using the file command.
<h1>My SMS form</h1>
<form method=post action='sendsms.php'>
<td><input type='text' name='recipient'></td>
<td><textarea rows=4 cols=40 name='message'></textarea></td>
<td><input type=submit name=submit value=Send></td>
Do you think it is an easy way to do it or do you have any other idea?
