I'm am in need of FREE form mail. I have found a few that are free but the free forms that I have seen are simply for comments.

 

I need an order form for email. I have my html all set up and ready to roll.

 

If anyone knows of a good FREE form mail for ordering please let me know.

Okay. I tried both of those site. I think my problem is that I am using dreamweaver and have no knowledge of php script. (or anything other then html)

 

I pasted code, from the dodos read me, into dream weaver and I somewhat get the idea. Problem is that I don't see any place in which my, potential, senders can submit information.

 

The Ultimate form mail confuses me completly.

 

 

Thank you for you help Lisa. I appreciate it very much.

Hey BellaAna,

 

The general way formmailers work is you just create your form in dreamweaver, copy the formmail.php file into your web space, and make the action of the form in dreamweaver point to the PHP file.

 

Ususally there will be some variables for you to change by editing the PHP file before you upload it. Ususally it will tell you what to change in the comments of the PHP file itself.

 

Different formail scripts may also require certain names of your e-mail from, subject, name fields etc. It should tell u in the documentation and possibly the PHP file what these name should be.

 

Hope that helps you to understand a bit more how they work!

In Dodosmail.php

just edit the second line to use your address

removing the ## before it.

 

##$your_email_address="you@******";

 

upload the dodosmail.php and the test.html which is a form

and goto the test.html on your site and try it

it should work.

Then just modify the test.html to your needs.

Or you can copy test.html and insert it into one of your pages for your contact page.

okay... this is helping.

 

I think I am beginning to understand.

 

I changed the email to what I need it to be in both the note pad thing as well as the webpage (within dreamweaver)

 

it isn't working.

 

This is what I get when I test the form http://www.persona-designs.com/dodosmail.php

I dont know if this will help, but see if you have

>AddHandler application/x-httpd-php .htm .html .shtml

in your htaccess. If not add it and see if it helps. If it doesnt, remove it.

I'm sorry. This is foreign to me. I don't understand script. I use dreamweaver very well and that is the extent of my knowledge.

 

When you say htaccess. I don't know what you are referring to. (It is very familiar)

 

I don't know where to put this code.

 

 

I thank you for your help though. Greatly appreciated.

oh I get it! htaccess is within my folders on the cpanel or ftp. I found htpasswds. Does this sound right?

 

- I added it to my htpasswds and got nothing back.

 

 

I'm wondering if this has anything to do with my little problem:

 

QUOTE:

 

"FormMail-clone is a clone of Matt Wright's FormMail.cgi under a less restrictive liscense. It should behave almost exactly as FormMail.cgi, but it is completely written from scratch so there might be a few minor visual diffrences.

 

The Actual Script is here.... http://persona-designs.com/cgi-sys/FormMail.cgi

 

The documentation for Matt Wright's FormMail.cgi might be helpful if you have never used FormMail before. It is avalible here. Please note that the Cpanel 3.0 developers are not associated with Matt Wright's Script archive in any way.

"

 

I found this on my cpanel when I clicked the form mail button. This is all I get. Nothing more, nothing less. (not that there is much less to see)

also... there is a buttong on the cpanel that gives me the option to install perl modules. Is there a differnce betweel perl and php? If not then this may be the error.

 

I know that I have php capabilities... I had a php chat room on the site. (which has since been taken down)

First in the file test.html

remove the line

<input type="hidden" name="your_email_address" value="you@******">

do not add your address to the form

 

be sure you uploaded dodsmail.php

with the second line edited to your adddress

and removed the two # in front of it.

 

 

The file dosmail.php is not in the same place as the test.html file

so the form wil not work.

once you edit dosmail.php and upload it goto test.html

and fill out the form and it should work.

Oh My! It worked!

 

First of all, Don, you were (of course) right. I didn't have the files in the same place. I read that they shouldn't be together so ... I didn't put them together.

 

I did test the page and php file in the same place but I kept getting this error page. When I slowed down and read it properly I realized my problem.

 

There was an error on line 2 of the php file. Basically I had the <? and the email info on separate lines when they shouldn't have been.

 

I thank everyone for you GREAT support. This is why I love coming to these forums. I know that when I have a question there will be someone to answer. (and always within minutes.) What do you guys do? work 24/7?) Lisa was working with me right away. (Thank you!)

 

Everyone helped out little by little. Forgive me for being for illiterate with php. This little problem has pushed me to teach myself the inner workings for php. (I hate not knowing things)

 

Thank you Lisa, Thomas, Don and PurpleSpider (adorable name btw)

Thank you very much guys!!
