    More than one actions per form?

    Hey

    How do I add more than action per Form?

    I have a registration form which sends data to a database on submit. I want it to send data to a mail aswell...how do I do that?

    Regards
    Dennis Ingham

    You can only have one action statement for a form... but that action can point to a script that can do any number of things.

    Here's a rough outline (treat as pseudo code... it's probably riddled with errors)

    HTML Code:
    <?php
    
    if(isset($_POST['submit'])  ){
    
        //validate
    
         //Do other stuff
         //e.g., Store in a database
        //e.g., send an email
    
    }
    ?>
    <html>
    <head>
    </head>
    <body>
    
    <form action="<?php echo $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] ?>" method="post">
    
    <input type="submit" name="submit" value="Save">
    </form>
    
    </body>
    </html>

    Hi again.
    I can post the data to the database, but I can't figure out the mail - maybe it's because i'm using the wrong PHP script:

    My codes looks like this:
    <?PHP
    if (isset($_POST['submit'])){
    echo $editFormAction;

    $to = 'info@ingham-sejlerskole.dk';
    $subject = 'Ny tilmelding';
    $message ='Der er kommet en ny tilmelding';
    $headers = 'MIME-Version: 1.0' . "\r\n";
    $headers = 'Content-type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1' . "\r\n";
    $headers = 'To: Dennis <info@ingham-sejlerskole.dk>' . "\r\n";
    $headers = 'From: Dennis Ingham <info@ingham-sejlerskole.dk>' . "\r\n";

    mail($to, $subject, $message, $headers);
    }
    ?>


    I'm a little newbie in PHP programming so...maybe I just picked up the wrong script.

    Anyone who knows how to sent mail with PHP scripting?

    I added . before the = sign. Try that.
    PHP Code:
    <?PHP
    if (isset($_POST['submit'])){
    echo 
    $editFormAction;

    $to 'info@ingham-sejlerskole.dk';
    $subject 'Ny tilmelding';
    $message ='Der er kommet en ny tilmelding';
    $headers 'MIME-Version: 1.0' "\r\n";
    $headers .= 'Content-type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1' "\r\n";
    $headers .= 'To: Dennis <info@ingham-sejlerskole.dk>' "\r\n";
    $headers .= 'From: Dennis Ingham <info@ingham-sejlerskole.dk>' "\r\n";

    mail($to$subject$message$headers);
    }
    ?>
    My settings

    Browser :: FireFox 1.5
    Resolution :: 1152x864
    Connection :: Cable Modem 2Mbs

    Using $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] in that context is insecure.

    Yes, you're quite right. Laziness struck me again.

    Thank you all...now it's working

    To bokeh: how can I change $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] into a secure statement, but with the same function?
