guys i really need your help. im not sure how to even explain this so here goes.

i want to create a page where u enter a text and then u click a 'convert' button and the text is inserted to a larger text

for example lets say u enter 'john' into a field and then click 'convert'

it should now say 'my name is john, how are you?'

hope this makes sense.

Its really simple, converting textfield value and inserting it to your page. Ok il show how its done.

Here's a little working example, for this issue...
