How to make a Tree-branching kind of solution to find answers?

How to make a Tree-branching kind of solution to find answers?

How to make a Tree-branching kind of solution to find answers?

I want to setup a solution to find answers by elimination.
For instance, starting off with the most basic and obvious question. Then if the answer is yes the user will be moved on to the next question, or given an answer. And so forth. Some answers may have exceptions.
I know the basics of forms and inputs, but I have never needed to make a form. And most importantly I don't know exactly how to setup the "if this, then that. Otherwise, this." part.

I would appreciate it if someone could share some leads.

Thanks in advance guys,


RE: How to make a Tree-branching kind of solution to find answers?

Not with HTML and CSS alone. You'll need some type of programing language for that.

So first define what programming language you wish to use, like Javascript, PHP, ASP etc...?
forum434: PHP
forum216: Javascript
forum855: Microsoft: ASP.NET

And then draw out the general flow of what you want the questionnaire to work like.

Once you have a general flow, you can start designing the forms for input, and the background logic with some type of programming language.
