    Hi Guys,

    I need to make a page of a website with a form and then the form details emailed to someone.

    I believe that there is no way to do this via CSS & HTML alone, is this correct?

    I do not know php at all, although I have given this a bash via a coding book I have, but it does not seem to work.

    Can someone tell me what I have done wrong or help me in any way as I am starting to get frustrated?




    if (array_key_exists('Notify', $_POST)) {
    $to = '';
    $subject = 'Notify when Live';
    $expected = array('Name', 'Email Address');
    $required = array('Name', 'Email Address');
    $headers = 'From: My website<>';
    $process = '';
    if (file_exists($process) && is_readable($process)) {
    else {
    $mailSent = false;
    mail($to, 'Server Problem', "$process cannot be read", $headers);
    if ($POST && isset($missing) && (!empty($missing)) {
    <p class="warning"> Not all required fields were filled in. </p>
    }else if ($POST && !$mailSent) {
    <p class="warning">Sorry, there was a problem sending your message. Please try later. </p>
    elseif ($POST && $mailSent) {
    <p> <strong>Your message has been sent. Thank you for your feedback. </strong> </p>
    <?php } ?>
    <form action="<?php echo $_SERVER['PHP SELF']; ?>" method="post">
    <input type="hidden" name="subject" value="notify me from site" />
    <input type="hidden" name="redirect" value="" />
    <p> <strong> Name </strong> </p> <br /> <input type="text" name="Name" size="30" />
    <p> <strong> Email Address </strong> </p> <br /> <input type="text" name="Email Address" size="30" />
    <p> <input type="button" name="Notify" value="Notify" /> </p>

    HTML Form :

    <form name="form1" method="get" action="sendmail.php">

    <input name="yourname" class="input-bx" value="Your Name" onClick="this.value=''" type="text" />

    <input name="youremail" class="input-bx" value="Your email" onClick="this.value=''" type="text" />

    <input type="submit" name="Submit" value=" " class="submitclass" />


    PHP code :

    $emailid = $_GET["youremail"];
    $yourname = $_GET["yourname"];


    $to = "receiver email id";

    $subject = "subject here";

    $mailbody_client = "message text here";

    $headers = "Content-type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1";
    @mail($to, $subject, $mailbody_client, $headers);

    header("Location: thanks.html");

    I have a feeling the one Alex L points to will do the job plus a lot more. It's pretty intensive. Literally copy, paste, change bold areas job done. :)
