I want to get form mail working but for some reason when I fill in the blanks on my form mail test page I get the e-mail sent to me with no info from the fields of the form. All i get is a row like this ***********

What could be wrong ?

Mike

Probably something to do with how what's been typed in is being deciphered by the script that you are using for the forms back-end.

Try this link which allows you to design the form and all you have to do after that is copy and paste the code into your webpage. You do have to register though, but it works really well.

Hope this helps.

What is your backend for the form?

Sorry, that wasn't a very good response on my end. On a web form there is a usually a script or some type of application on the back-end that processes the form inputs then creates and sends the email. This is identified on the form by the action attribute, so it would looks something like this...

NOTE: angle brackets replace square brackets in the following

Code:
 [form action="some_url" method="post or get"]  .. .. [/form] 



This all might be moot with Cozanostra's posting. That site looks like they host the script that processes for form, so you really don't have to do any programming. The only draw back to this that I see is that you rely on the different site to be up/available/in business/etc. If not, your form might be up, but the script that processes wouldn't be.

A lot of times your ISP provides samples on how to implement the form handling on the same server. Check their FAQ.

I hope this helps. You can also contact me directly if you have very specific questions.

Hi,
I don't want to do all that right now. What ever is wrong did work at one time so it should be able to be fixed. I am only helping a friend out with the site but this is a little over my head..
