    Hi,

    I need help with choosing the most appropriate method of developing something with the following requirements:
    • A survey that stores responses in a database and then emails results to the user
    • The survey must also have the capability to allow a user (with no IT background) to login and update questions as necessary
    • The survey must be implemented on an existing wordpress website. I do not have access to this website, so I need to develop separately and then handover to the website owners with some direction for installation, noting the website owners have little to no experience in IT.
    • It is for a project, so I cannot use an existing plugin
    I am considering a the following options:

    1. Develop using the HTML editor in posts within the Wordpress admin dashboard
    2. Develop using external theme .php files
    3. Develop using a plugin

    Can you provide advice on what would be the best option (or if there are other options) and how would I best approach the implementation of said option?

    Any advice will be much appreciated!

    Thanks
