    Cool Auto Responders

    Hi Guys
    I am trying to set up a Auto Responder, but when I try and put a link into the main text body, it wont come through as a link, just text.... any idea how I get it as a link?

    Another one, if I set up an auto responder how do I get to keep the email address that I am sending to? If they are no getting to my inbox?
    Thanks
    Beca

    In Control Panel modify your message.

    Tick the 'HTML message' checkbox

    type in the body

    <a href = 'http://www.yoursite.html/'>Type what to display here</a>


    I don't quite understand your second question.

    If you use outlook you need to set up an account in it to receive your mail from your autoresponder email address.

    The auto responder just sends the writer a reply but their email will still be sent on to you.

    Regards
    Richard

    When you set up an auto responder with your mail, there is a text area where you can type your message...

    In so far as sending different messages to the same people one day, two days, three days later ... you would need to do this via an email list and send out a newsletter or such ...

    The auto responder works when someone emails you ... and doesn't repeat itself unless they email you again ...

    I get a response from it as well and it notifies me that the form or whatever ive done there has been used and the contents of the form.. or just notice that the thank you page has been hit. It goes to your person too if thats how you have set it up.

    You are having it redirected to a thank you page instead of the old way.. thats why you create the success page.

    ok so what is it i have to do. so i know when i used the bv php method it states that you need to create a success and error page. SO is that blocking my "thank you message" from going to the person? I may just have to manually send he messages out if i have to "twick" the program..

    You can look up the old posts about making the forms and copy the code. It will notify and email the sender. Its here on the forum in the forms forum i think.

    Actually no thank you. I will just take my entire site down and will end up using another program such as dreamweaver to do it. I really dont have time to tweak programs when they should have been built correct the first time before putting them out for the public to use. I have numerous problems with bv from not loading in IE to the forms. And the whole idea of spending all day "trying" to find the answer to question in a forum is ridiculous!! No offense to you Karen. Thanks for all your help and getting back to me when you could. But im ready to go to another hosting service.

    Its much harder to do the forms in dreamweaver. I mean I could go find you the codes. Its not that the form is coded wrong.. its coded to do exactly what you chose it to do, with the success page templates. You can add your code or take a couple of minutes and find it on here. Not that difficult really. I could go find it for you.. but I have things to do at times too. Ive been around the block a few times...youll find out that vodahost is pretty darn good.

    Im sorry im not understanding...a code for what??? To tweak it...?? The form is fine, nothing is wrong with that. The problem is the auto responder. So i have to find a code to fix the problem that lies with the program. I would rather learn dreamweaver and learn the correct coding for something that i know will load in ALL browsers, than to spend time lookin for an answer to fix one of my many problems with BV.

    No.. You have to have coding/script for the form. The problem is NOT the autoresponder. The script you chose to use sends it to the success page.. let me see if i can find that tutorial and show you how to do one from scratch. Even if you do one in dreamweaver you will still need coding/script to make it go to the autoresponder.

    OK... I just found out the original posts have been deleted.

    Make a page and save it as action, go to page properties and change them to php. You can title it THANK YOU and put whatever you want on the page itself.

    Go to page html--start of page-- and copy and paste this code in:

    <?PHP
    if($_SERVER['REQUEST_METHOD'] == 'POST')
    {
    $mailto = "youremail@yourdomain.com";
    $email = $HTTP_POST_VARS['email'];
    if ($email == "") {
    $email = $mailto;
    }
    $mailsubj = "Email from Our Contact Form";
    $mailhead = "From: $email\n"
    . "MIME-Version: 1.0"."\r\n"
    . "Content-Type: text/plain; charset=utf-8"."\r\n"
    . "Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit"."\r\n"
    . "X-Mailer: PHP v".phpversion();

    reset ($HTTP_POST_VARS);

    $mailstart = "Values submitted from website form :\n";

    while (list ($key, $val) = each ($HTTP_POST_VARS))
    {
    if ($key!="submit")
    {
    $mailbody .= "$key : $val\n";
    }
    }
    $mail_message = $mailstart.$mailbody;
    mail($mailto, $mailsubj, stripslashes($mail_message), $mailhead);

    $responder_start = "Thank you for submitting your info.
    Here is a copy of your submission";

    $mailhead = "From: Your Site Title <$mailto>\n"
    . "MIME-Version: 1.0"."\r\n"
    . "Content-Type: text/plain; charset=utf-8"."\r\n"
    . "Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit"."\r\n"
    . "X-Mailer: PHP v".phpversion();
    $responder_subject = "Thank you for contacting us!";
    $responder_message = $responder_start.$mailbody;

    mail($email, $responder_subject, stripslashes($responder_message), $mailhead);
    }
    ?>



    Make sure that on the form page, which is a different page you title the form box "email' in lower case. You can edit the parts in red, You change the email address of couse and in the form properties you change the action to action.php . Use multiform/data and post.

    You can probably change/edit the form you currently have. This will email your client.

    Send all thanks to NavalDesign as he gave me the codes.

    Hi, Karen

    My name is Frank. I have a question regarding the autoresponder code
    and what I want the autoresponder to do for me.

    I've set up the autoresponder already and I do get the imputed text
    in the fields on the forms of my website so that's ok.

    My question is, how do i get a sample message when I enter my own
    info on the forms? I want to get my own created message to see if I
    did the email correct with formating and such.

    When i did this on another website I was also getting the sample
    message sent to me along with the entered text of the prospect and
    now I can't make it send me my messages for my approval!

    What could I be doing wrong?

    P. S.
    I did try your version about inserting the code in the start page and all
    I got was a confirmation that I filled the form and that's ok but I would
    prefer my prepared message that I created in the control panel under
    autoresponder, by the way i created also a main email account with that
    autoresponder address as instructed, so I don't know no mo!

    Here is my website, it's a two field form at the bottom of every page.
    http://www.TheFiveStarMarketingGroup.com and the contact us page.

    I want to thank you ahead of time just in case you can make this happen
    for me, I'm just out of ideas! I just wanted to see my own email first
    before I sent it out.

    Thank you
    Francisco Tinoco Jr

    Opps!

    I forgot I do have this code in my contact us thank you page

    page html - beginning of body -

    <?PHP
    $mailto = "franktjr@thefivestarmarketinggroup.com";
    $email = $HTTP_POST_VARS['email'];
    if ($email == "") {
    $email = $mailto;
    }
    $mailsubj = "From the Contact us Page";
    $mailhead = "From: $email\n";
    reset ($HTTP_POST_VARS);
    $mailbody = "Values submitted from web site form :\n";
    while (list ($key, $val) = each ($HTTP_POST_VARS))
    {
    if ($key!="submit")
    {
    $mailbody .= "$key : $val\n";
    }
    }
    mail($mailto, $mailsubj, $mailbody, $mailhead);
    ?>


    That's it!
    Thanks
