Pmwiki vanilla forms (without any forms-processing recipes) doesn't really
support *doing anything* with the forms - they just allow you to embed the
form on the page, but don't do anything with the information you put there.

I quote from: http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/PmWiki/Forms:

Input forms don't actually handle processing of the form data -- the
feature simply allows creation of forms inside wiki pages. Forms processing
can be found in the Cookbook

So to do what you are looking to do: either you write your own PHP code to
do something with the content entered in the form or else you use one of
the existing forms processors.  Probably the 2 most popular forms
processors are Fox and PmForms.  Personally I like the flexibility of
WikiSh, but it's got a learning curve if you aren't familiar with the
Bourne Shell scripting language.
