    </head>
    
    <body>
    <form method="post" action="getform.php"> 
      <p>
        <select name="type" size="1" id="select">
          <option value="site" selected="selected">Dive Site</option>
          <option value="boat">Charterable Boat</option>
          <option value="slip">Slip</option>
        </select>    
      <p>Name of Site:
        <input name="dname" type="text"><br>
      <p>Latudude:
      <input name="lat" type="text">
      <br>
      <p>Longditude:
      <input name="lng" type="text">
      (If you don't know leave blank and put a detailed explination of the location in the discription)<br>
      <p>Discription:<br> 
        <textarea name="desc" rows="15" cols="41"></textarea>
        <br>
      </p> 
      <p>Your name:
      <input name="yname" type="text">  
      <p>
        <input type="submit" />
        <input type="reset" name="Reset" id="button" value="Reset" />
      <br>
     </form>
    </body>
    </html>

    Not sure if this is what you want but... you must think about injections as well research code that will help prevent them... Its a start

    PHP Code:
    $email $_POST["email"];
    $message $_POST ["message"];
    $meemail ="your email";

    $email_from $meemail;//<== update the email address
    $email_subject "Message from $dname";
    $email_body "your messgage".
        
    $to "email address";//<== update the email address
    $headers "From: $meemail \r\n";
    //Send the email!
    mail($to,$email_subject,$email_body,$headers);
    //done. redirect to thank-you page.

       
    ?>

    I can get that much so far but I either get errors or only the first item gets submitted how do I get the "$email_body" to include multiple form fields?

    PHP Code:

    $email_body 
    "We have received a new message  \n".
        
    "Here are the details:\n
    Name: 
    $firstname $surname \n 
    Email: 
    $email \n 
    Message: 
    $message \n 
    Contact information: 
    $contactinfo \n" 
    Thats how to include multiple form fields

    If the example doesn't work you need to post the email code as well so we can have a look at it

    I keep receiving a syntax error on line 9. But the $email_body part is error free now.
    PHP Code:
    <?php 
     $to 
    "diver@nicholasmanuel.net"
     
    $subject $_REQUEST['dname']; 
     
    $email_body "We have recieved a new site submission \n
         
    $type \n
         
    $lat$lng \n
        
    $desc \n
        
    $yname"
     
    $headers "From: divesites@nicholasmanuel.net" ;
     
    $sent mail($to$subject$email_body$headers) ;
     if(
    $sent
     {print 
    "Your dive site was successfully submitted"; }
     else 
     {print 
    "We encountered an error submitting your dive site"; }
     
    ?>

    Change this:

    PHP Code:

    $yname

    To This:

    PHP Code:

    $yname 
    \n".
