I am bemused by this problem, I've run the php code through an online tester and there are no errors but when I click Submit without filling out any fields it just refreshes the page, no errors are displayed. When I complete the form and click Submit the same thing happens.

I think the html form etc is all good so now I'm stumped, any help is much appreciated.

<?php include ('./includes/header.php');?>


<?php  

if (isset($_POST ['submit'])) {

    $name = $_POST ['name'];
    $email = $_POST ['email'];
    $phone = $_POST ['phone'];
    $message = $_POST ['message'];


    $name = mysql_real_escape_string($name);
    $email = mysql_real_escape_string($email);
    $phone = mysql_real_escape_string($phone);
    $message = mysql_real_escape_string($message);



    $to = "example@gmail.com";
    $subject = "Web Inquiry";
    $body = "From: $name\n\n E-Mail: $email\n\n Telephone: $phone\n\n Message:\n\n $message";


    $errors = array();


        if (empty($name) || empty($email) || empty($messge)) {



            if (empty($name)) {

                $errors[] = "You must enter a name.";

            } 

            if (strlen($name) > 50) {

                $errors[] = "The maximum amount of characters for name is 50.";
            }

            if (empty($email)) {

                $errors[] = "You must enter an email address.";

            } 

            if (filter_var($register_email, FILTER_VALIDATE_EMAIL)===false) {

                    $errors [] = "Email address invalid.";
                }

            if (strlen($message) < 5) {

                $errors [] = "Your messgae must be at least 25 characters.";
            }




            if (!empty($errors)) {

                    echo $errors;

            } else {

                // send message
                mail($to, $subject, $body);
                header('Location: message-sent.php');
                exit();


                //insert message into database
                }

            }

}

I think the issue you are having is with your isset function in your first if staement and with the lack of IDs on your input elements.

I think this is what your code should look like. I have also added an Else clause to the first if statement this will echo out an error if your form fails during the isset evaluation.

<?php include ('./includes/header.php');?>
<?php  
if (isset($_POST['name'])&& isset($_POST['email'])&& 
    isset($_POST['phone'])&& isset($_POST['message'])) {
    $name = $_POST ['name'];
    $email = $_POST ['email'];
    $phone = $_POST ['phone'];
    $message = $_POST ['message'];
    $name = mysql_real_escape_string($name);
    $email = mysql_real_escape_string($email);
    $phone = mysql_real_escape_string($phone);
    $message = mysql_real_escape_string($message);
    $to = "example@gmail.com";
    $subject = "Web Inquiry";
    $body = "From: $name\n\n E-Mail: $email\n\n Telephone: $phone\n\n Message:\n\n $message";
    $errors = array();
        if (empty($name) || empty($email) || empty($messge)) {
            if (empty($name)) {
                $errors[] = "You must enter a name.";
            } 
            if (strlen($name) > 50) {
                $errors[] = "The maximum amount of characters for name is 50.";
            }
            if (empty($email)) {
                $errors[] = "You must enter an email address.";
            } 
            if (filter_var($register_email, FILTER_VALIDATE_EMAIL)===false) {
                    $errors [] = "Email address invalid.";
                }
            if (strlen($message) < 5) {
                $errors [] = "Your messgae must be at least 25 characters.";
            }
            if (!empty($errors)) {
                    echo $errors;
            } else {
                // send message
                mail($to, $subject, $body);
                header('Location: message-sent.php');
                exit();
                //insert message into database
                }
            }

}else{
    echo'there is an error with the isset statement';
}

Just spotted I inexplicable omitted name="submit", can't test it as server is down but hopefully this is the reason, but if you spot anything else I'd appreciate it.

Hello Sway, I just tried that but no errors are displayed, for some reson Array os printed on the screen but for the life of me I can't figure out why !
