how to keep state of checkboxes and textfields

Posts: n/a

I'm struggling with a checkbox and textfield problem, for which i can't find
any solutions. Maybe the goal is a bit exceptional, but i'll try to explain
to this group anyway.

I have created a simple webpage for only 3 users. The page contains a form
with several checkboxes and textfields, which have to be checked, unchecked
or filled in by the users. The things one user changed should be visible for
the next user and so on. Eventually the page should display an actual status
of all the individual users changes, with checked boxes, unchecked boxes and
filled or empty textfields.

For example: checkbox A, B and C are all unchecked and textfield D is empty.
User X checks box A and puts "message for Jack" in the textfield. The next
day user Y finds box A checked, boxes B and C unchecked and the message in
the textfield. Now this user can do it's changes on the page, which will be
presented in that state when the next user visits it.

And there is the problem! As soon as the page reloads, all the changes
disappear because the fields are reset to their original, empty values. I've
looked for scripts, programming possibilities for FrontPage 2003 and so on,
but found nothing relevant.

Who can help, preferably in simple A-through-Z-steps?
Thanks a lot!
