I am trying to make a custom form and insert into the database but when I click submit nothing happens. Please help me. I did research and changed my code but still same result. I don't know why.

This is the code:

<?php
/*
Template Name: Student
*/
get_header();
?>    
<?php echo "google";?>    
<?php

    if($_POST['Submit'])
        {
         global $wpdb;
         $name=$_POST['aname'];
         $roll=$_POST['aroll'];
         $dept=$_POST['adept'];
              if($wpdb->insert(    
                  'std', array(
                               'name' => $name,
                               'roll' => $roll,
                               'dept' => $dept
                               )
                               ) == false) wp_die('Database insertion failed');
     else 
          echo "<p>Database insertion successful</p>";  
?>
<?php
}
else //else we didnt submit the form, so display the form
{
?>
<form action="" method="post" id="addcourse">
<label> Student Name:<input type="text" 
name="aname" size="30" /></label>
<label> Roll:<input type="text" 
name="aroll" size="30" /></label>
<label> Department:<input type="text" name="adept" size="30" /></label>
<br />
<input type="Submit" id="addcoursesubmit" value="submit" />
</form>
<?php
}

{
}
?>
<?php get_sidebar(); ?>
<?php get_footer(); ?>

I read your whole code there is a small mistake done by you. Try to put name on your input submit.

<input type="Submit" id="addcoursesubmit" value="submit" name="Submit"/>

I want to create a database table with a column corresponding to the time in my wordpress site, so that I can save user actions into this table and know when they did it.

Creating a table:

$sql = "CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS $table_name (
        id INT NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
        actiontime NOT NULL DATETIME,
        PRIMARY KEY (id)
    ) $charset_collSate;";
    require_once( ABSPATH . 'wp-admin/includes/upgrade.php' );
    // execute the query
    dbDelta( $sql );

Is this correct?

I would want a time stamp such that I can get the difference on minute/second intervals.

I have 4 tables from the first table, I took all data from the two columns and displayed it in the view. For each data, I have two text fields and the user is supposed to fill those data. Having filled data into the text field, how can I insert all the records into the second table using one form only?
