    Struggling with Contact Form

    Hi All,

    I am busy editing a template and want to use formmail.php for the script. I have made the required changes in formmail.php however it is the basic HTML code that I am struggling with.

    I have been told I need to insert the following however which I have done.
    Code:
    method="post"
    This also needs to be inserted however I am not sure where to put it.

    Code:
    <input type="submit" value="Send">  <input type="reset" value="Clear">
    Any assistance would be appreciated, herewith the form code.

    Code:
    <form id="form2" method="POST" action="formmail.php" enctype="multipart/form-data">
    									<div>
    										<div class="form"><input type="text" value="Name:" /></div>
    										<div class="form"><input type="text" value="E-mail:" /></div>
    										<div><textarea name="textarea" cols="20" rows="20">Message:</textarea></div>
    										<div class="alignright"><a class="link1" href="" onclick="document.getElementById('form2').reset()">clear</a>  &nbsp; &nbsp; <a class="link1" href="" onclick="document.getElementById('form2').submit()">send</a></div>
    									</div>
    								</form>
    Regards
    Brendan

    You put it in the right place, it goes in <form>

    If it still isn't working... I don't know. you might want to switch to a CGI script.

    Your current hosting package or service MUST allow SMTP ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simple_...nsfer_Protocol ) to work. Otherwise, no email can be sent.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the responses. I will check if my webhost allows SMTPs and PHP.

    Where do I point the links to Clear and Send, they are both set to # at present?

    Cheers

    If you can't get around the fact that your host won't allow SMTP, you could simply INSERT it into a MySQL database and then check back every once and a while for new records.
