View Full Version : Totally frustrated with email forms

Can anyone help me with my form? You can see it at www.re-flections.co.uk/contact.html (http://www.re-flections.co.uk/contact.html). When you submit the form it just gives me the option to send an email. I've read that PHP script is better than mailto, but I have no idea how to make a script. I've tried the suggestions on the tutorial, but it's not worked. How can I configure this form, so that it will send me the details? Please help me!

3) Try again, and if you fail again,,,try again.

the HTML page the the form is on should have the same name as the PHP page.

Lets see the PHP code you are using. Post it here.

Email forms are not easy for me. They give me headaches. Even after watching the videos I still can't do them. Can you see anything wrong with this script?

$email = $HTTP_POST_VARS[email];
$mailto = info@re-flections.co.uk;
$mailsubj = "Enter Your Subject Here";
$mailhead = "From: $email\n";
reset ($HTTP_POST_VARS);
$mailbody = "Values submitted from web site form:\n";
while (list ($key, $val) = each ($HTTP_POST_VARS))
$mailbody .= "$key : $val\n";
mail($mailto, $mailsubj, $mailbody, $mailhead);

I've done it and I can't believe it! After days of trying I've managed to do it. Thanks so much for your help. It was just pure carelessness on my part. I re-read the php script and it dawned on me that I had left some information out. Thanks for your suggestions.
