Let's create the easy coding for the web form, which will be used to get URL inputs from the users.

Note: the blue font color is for the code discussion or description.

//Start session for captcha or security code






<!--Start the head tag as well as display the page title-->





<title>PHP XML sitemap code generator</title>





//Check if the form is submitted


if (!$_POST['submit'])



//If the web form is not submitted, display the web form




<!--This is the actual web form-->


<br />


<!--This form will submit the data to itself using PHP SELF-->


<form action="<?php echo $SERVER['PHP_SELF']; ?>"


<font face="Verdana" size="2">


<!-Below is the form content, instructions on how to use-->


<!--You can enter any content here for your own web application, a sample content is shown in the screenshot below-->


<!--The Text area HTML code which will accepts user inputs in terms of URL-->


<!--It also includes the captcha or the security code-->


<textarea name="url" rows="18" cols="120"></textarea>

<br /><br />

<img src="/xmlsitemapgenerator/antibot.php" />

<br />

Type the anti-bot code above:

<br /> <br />

<input type="text" name="captcha" size="10">

<br /> <br />

<input type="submit" name="submit" value="Generate Sitemap XML code">


<a href="/xmlsitemapgenerator/xmlsitemapgenerator.php">Click here to reset or clear this form</a> 

The above is the complete web form code. An example of the completed form should look like this:
