  • Email Form Not Working

    Im having problems with my website contact form. I cant get form to actually send an email.

    <form method="post" action="mailto:[email protected]" class="userEmail"> <!-- The class is for the contact_ui.js mail code -->
    <input type="text" class="sender_name" name="name" value="Name..." />
    <input type="text" class="emailFrom" name="emailFrom" value="Email..." />
    <input type="text" class="subject" name="subject" value="Subject..." />
    <textarea class="message" cols="0" rows="0" name="message"></textarea>
    <input class="submit" type="submit" name="submit" value="send email" />

    Cheers Neil.

    Yeah, that’s because every website that’s even just remotely to be taken seriously is telling us that forms with mailto: action are unreliable at best. You should use a server side script that does the processing such as PHP. There is a good script on http://www.tectite.com/formmailpage.php
    Stop solving problems you don’t yet have!
