    Submitting form content to an email plus a 'thank you' page

    Actually I am not even sure if this kind of form handling is even allowed, but here is what I want to do.

    I have the following HTML form and piece of javascript code to submit the form to my email and show a 'thank you' page after submitting.

    HTML Code:
    <form id="form" method="post" name="form" onsubmit="submitForm();">
    <input name="to" type="hidden" value="user@domain.com" /> 
    <input name="feedback" type="hidden" value="thanks.htm" />
    <table>
    </tr>
    <tr>
     <td>
      <label for="first_name">First Name</label>
     </td>
     <td>
      <input  type="text" name="first_name" maxlength="50" size="30">
     </td>
    </tr>
    
    <tr>
     <td>
      <label for="last_name">Last Name</label>
     </td>
     <td>
      <input  type="text" name="last_name" maxlength="50" size="30">
     </td>
    </tr>
    </table>
    
    <input name="Submit" type="submit" value="Submit" />
    </form>
    Javascript:

    Code:
    $(document).ready(function(){
    
        function submitForm() { 
        	
        	emailForm("form"); 
        	
        } 
        
        function emailForm(myForm) {
    		myForm.submit();
    	} 
        
      });
    But when the submit button is clicked, nothign happens. I appreciate if anyone could tell me what the problem is.

    Thanks in advance,
    Atrisa

    Add in the action attribute to the form tag specifying the thank you page.

    If you mean like this:

    <form id="form" action="thanks.htm" method="post" name="form" onsubmit="submitForm();">

    I have done this; It goes to the thanks page now, but doesn't deliver the form to my email.

    to send email you need a language that can interact with your smtp or simply email server. you can do that very easily using PHP.

    The problem is that I can't use php or perl, because this form resides on Liferay server on tomcat 7 which is JAVA based; I could use Liferay's own web form, but that is some lame.

    then you may use supported language. JSP if it supports. or simply you can upload a file to another server that supports PHP and set your form's action to that server (Although its not a proper way but worth a try)

    Thanks Zabi. I am now trying with JSP. Where can I get or download this "/blx.tld" file as it is complaining about it. I have been googling, but doesn't get me any where.
