Hey Guys,

I just set up a contact form on my site and used an image as the "send" button. When I get an email from the form, I get x= some number and y= some number. So the form is sending the coordinates where the user clicks on the image over the email but I receive no other information. I obviously want the email address and message info and not the image coordinates. Thanks Guys

<div class="contactform">
  <form action="FormToEmail.php" method="POST" name="contactform" id="form1">
                     <h5>Your Email</h5>
                        <div class="form"><input type="text" value=""/></div>
                      <h5>Your Message</h5>
                        <div class="textarea-box">
                           <textarea cols="10" rows="10"></textarea>
                           <div class="alignright"> <input type="image" src="images/sendbtn.jpg">

			</div>
                        </div>
               </form>

I appreciate and help!

The code from formtoemail.php may help here

The code from formtoemail.php may help here

Here is the FormToEmail.php code

<?php

$my_email = "art@nicholasmcgowan.com";

/*

Enter the continue link to offer the user after the form is sent.  If you do not change this, your visitor will be given a continue link to your homepage.

If you do change it, remove the "/" symbol below and replace with the name of the page to link to, eg: "mypage.htm" or "http://www.elsewhere.com/page.htm"

*/

$continue = "http://www.nicholasmcgowan.com";

/*

Step 3:

Save this file (FormToEmail.php) and upload it together with your webpage containing the form to your webspace.  IMPORTANT - The file name is case sensitive!  You must save it exactly as it is named above!  Do not put this script in your cgi-bin directory (folder) it may not work from there.

THAT'S IT, FINISHED!

You do not need to make any changes below this line.

Wheres my php guru at?! Any other options or suggestions to make this contact form work???

Thanks,

NIck

the problem might be that the input and textarea tags do not have a name attribute.

Try this:

<form action="FormToEmail.php" method="POST" name="contactform" id="form1">
    <h5>Your Email</h5>
    <div class="form"><input [B]name="email"[/B] type="text" value=""/></div>
    <h5>Your Message</h5>
    <div class="textarea-box">
        <textarea [B]name="textarea_box"[/B] cols="10" rows="10"></textarea>
        <div class="alignright"> <input type="image" src="images/sendbtn.jpg"></div>
    </div>
</form>

<button name="name" value="submit" type="submit"><img src="image" alt="alt"></button> creates a form submit that does not care about its own xy loaction

Booya! You guys were right on. Thanks a lot! If you want to pick my brain on any design stuff let me know.

Cheers,
Nick
