  1. I went ahead and updated the ticket with a request to check the log. Please keep in mind that I only implemented the suggested fix for the Contact form only. The Reservation and Comment forms still have the old code. Thanks.
  2. No I haven't. I'll go ahead and give that a try. Thanks.
  3. Does anyone know of any other resources that I can pursue? I've looked on quite a few discussion groups and forums but I don't see anyone else having this issue. Thanks.
  4. I've seen autoresponders work on other Flash sites. I suppose I'll have to keep looking.
  5. Thanks again. I implemented it but it's still a no go on the autoresponder. The form comes through fine but no autoresponse is received. Strange...
  6. Thanks. The form works now. However, still no autoresponder coming through. Do I need to put an actual email address in this snippet "-freal-email-address" ?
  7. I tried inserting -f"real-email-address" but it causes the form to fail (I replaced "real-email-address" with an actual email address). Am I doing something wrong? On another note, is there anyway to remove the two email addresses I mentioned in the original post? I believe the spam bots are already picked up on them.
  8. Oooh, it's too early. Now I see it. Thanks for forwarding that! I'll give it a try.
  9. Thanks. I realize that I need to have the script send email as a real user. I'm just not sure how to go about it...
  10. I've been having unable to get the TCH Autoresponder to send an autoresponse to the form recipient's email. However, the Autoresponder works perfectly if I send an email directly from my email client. I have programmed the PHP sendmail script to work in conjunction with the Flash at my client's website, lafamiglia.com (the forms can be found at the following pages within the site: Comments, Contact, Reservation) The following is the response I received from the TCH Help Desk in regards to my issue: The mails that is generating from the php/cgi mail forms as "nobody@habs.tchmachines.com" - not with any other specific email. The auto responder is trying to send out to this mail account nobody@habs.tchmachines.com and it will not work Please see the mail logs of a mail that is generated from Contact form 2009-01-18 21:51:11 1LOkEJ-000679-2J <= nobody@habs.tchmachines.com U=nobody P=local S=640 2009-01-18 21:51:11 no host name found for IP address 2009-01-18 21:51:11 1LOkEJ-000679-2J => reservation <****@lafamiglia.com> R=virtual_user T=virtual_userdelivery 2009-01-18 21:51:11 1LOkEJ-000679-2J => webmaster <****@lafamiglia.com> R=virtual_user T=v There is upgraded version of mail script available that will generate mails as a real user than "nobody" - then you can set auto responder for that. I'm not really sure how to get this to work or how to upgrade the script. Anybody have any ideas? Here is the PHP script that I am using: <?php $search = array('&', 'ñ', 'Ñ', 'á', 'é', 'í', 'ó', 'ú', 'Á', 'É', 'Í', 'Ó', 'Ú'); $replace = array('&', 'ñ', 'Ñ', 'á', 'é', 'í', 'ó', 'ú', 'Á', 'É', 'Í', 'Ó', 'Ú'); $fecha = date("D-M-y H:i"); $mymail = "****@lafamiglia.com, ****@lafamiglia.com"; $subject = "Website Comment"; $contenido = "Name: ".$_POST["name"]."\n"; $contenido .= "Email: ".$_POST["email"]."\n\n"; $contenido .= "Comment: ".$_POST["comment"]."\n\n"; $contenido .= "The message was wrote ".$fecha; $contenido = str_replace($search, $replace, $contenido); $header = "From:".$_POST["name"]."\nReply-To:".$_POST["email"]."\n"; $header .= "X-Mailer:PHP/".phpversion()."\n"; $header .= "Mime-Version: 1.0\n"; $header .= "Content-Type: text/plain"; mail($mymail, $subject, utf8_decode($contenido) ,$header); echo "&estatus=ok&"; ?>
  11. Possibly but unlikely since I employed a mangle script over two years ago. Perhaps it's from a post from a job listing site or something like that...
  12. Thanks for the responses. Yes, I'm sure it's a spoof. I'm running Mac OS X and doubt they're being sent from my machine but from somewhere else. I guess the consensus is that there's nothing I can do to prevent it.
  13. One of my Web site's addresses has been hijacked by a spammer. I keep receiving countless bounce back e-mails from invalid addresses. Anything I can do to stop this assault? Thanks in advance for any assistance.
  14. Thanks for the response Jim. I found this article last night, http://www.elixirsystems.com/seo_tips/avoi...ent-penalty.php They recommend using an online app, http://www.copyscape.com/ to see who's stealing content. It works gloriously. After running copyscape, I noticed that there is a lot of my site's content that hasb been indeed hijacked. Looks like I need to rewrite my content as there are too many sites that have hijacked content from several pages from within my site.
  15. My client's restaurant site has been hit hard by the bourbon update and has yet to return to the very high rankings that it's had for the past five years. We were number one on Google for several different key phrases for Philadelphia Restaurants. We still hold the top positions for the same phrases on MSN and Yahoo. Google crawls our home page every day but only crawls the rest of the site on a monthly basis as the site content does not change that often. I've already submitted a reinclusion request to Google but have yet to hear back. Not sure if it was necessary since we're still in the index. I've added a permanent 301 redirect, absolute links, removed all duplicate content. As I was reviewing the site, I discovered a few things that seem strange. FYI: The site 1. Google indexed back in January, some pages that do not exist on my site' server. eg. http://www.lafamiglia.com/Awards.html?PHPS...235fb95b2021529 There a handfull of these dyanamic URLs that are still showing up in the index. Any idea where they came from? I have two valid PHP pages on my site that ask the user to reserve a table or send in a comment. They contain an image verifier script via a formmail.php file that I downloaded from tectite.com. 2. I have noticed that there are countless restaurant/wine related Web site directories that have hijacked a lot of my site's content/wine list/menus, and posted on their own site (which, in turn, back link to our site). Could this duplicate content on these other Web sites be a contributing factor in my site's severe loss in page ranking? Thanks for any assistance.
