    Missing "textarea" form info

    Hello,

    I've set up a form on my site, but for some reason, when the form is completed and sent to my email addy, key info is missing. Infact, the actual textarea box title is missing all together.

    here's my coding:

    Code:
    <tr valign="top">
                <th align="right"><font color="#FFFFFF">Scheduled Performers:</font></th>
        <td>
          <textarea name="Scheduled_Performers" rows="3" cols="50"></textarea>
        </td>
      </tr>
    I would appreciate any help in figuring this out.
    Thanks!

    It's not the HTML form's fault (at least, not in isolation). Whatever program is called by the action attribute of the form element is apparently not aware of your textarea field. As such, we can't really give you a useful answer without seeing that program.

    Hi NogDog,

    Thanks for replying.

    But I don't have a problem with the other textarea that I have further down the page, so is it possible that the program would exclude one?

    Code:
          <form action="http://fortwaynehiphop.com/v-cgi/forms.cgi"
          enctype="application/x-www-form-urlencoded"
          method="post">
    <table>  <tr>
                <th align="right"><font color="#FFFFFF">Your Name:</font><font color="#cc0000">*</font> 
                </th>
        <td>
          <input type="text" name="Your_Name"  size="50" />
        </td>
      </tr>

    Sure it's possible. If the script is looking for particular fieldnames to process and does not "know" anything about the field you added, then it is not going to get processed. However, this is all an educated guess on my part, since I cannot actually see the script that does the form processing.
