Hey everyone,

Forgive me if this is a dumb question but I can't figure out why my data that I've typed in or selected in the form doesn't show when I actually send out an email once I click the submit button. I get an email stating the subject of the email that I sent but the content isn't there..why is this?

<?php
error_reporting (E_ALL ^ E_NOTICE); 

$to = "gene.howell9@gmail.com";
$subject = "Submitions from College/University Admission Services Form";

$Sname = $_POST["Sname"];
$Fname = $_POST["Fname"];
$Mname = $_POST["Mname"];
$Lname = $_POST["Lname"];
$email = $_POST["email"];
$history = $_POST["history"];
$age = $_POST["age"];
$sex = $_POST["sex"];
$country = $_POST["country"];
$SchoolsAttended = $_POST["SchoolsAttended"];
$CriminalRecord = $_POST["CriminalRecord"];
$record = $_POST["record"];
$status = $_POST["status"];

if($_POST['submit']){
    if($Sname == '' || $Fname == '' || $Mname == '' || $Lname == '' || $email == '' || $history == '' || $age == '' || $sex == '' || $country == '' || $SchoolsAttended == '' || $CriminalRecord == '' || $status == ''){
        $feedback = "<b>Fill out all the fields please before submitting</b>";
    }else{
    mail($to, $subject, $body, $header);
    $feedback ="<b>Thanks for your submition! Your form has been sent!</b>";
    }
}

$body = <<<EMAIL

Form submitted from $Fname $Lname.

Surname field: $Sname
First name field: $Fname
Middle name field: $Mname
Last name field: $Lname
History field: $history
Age: $age

Schools Attended: $SchoolsAttended
Criminal Record: $CriminalRecord
If yes was selected, list of details: $record
Marital Status: $status

From, $Fname

EMAIL;

$header = "From: $email";

?>

Here is the form as well:

There's no dumb question. It's much easier just start over! I feel like you didn't follow the format for email form.

Choose either examples:

http://php.about.com/od/phpapplications/ss/form_mail_3.htm

or

http://www.freecontactform.com/email_form.php

Both are very easy to modify to fit your email content.

The reason why I said easier modify because I already test it out with your data!

@LastMitch,

Thank you for being a big help! does this look right to you?

 <?php
    $to = $_REQUEST['myemailaddress@myemail.com'];
    $from = $_REQUEST['Email'];
    $name = $_REQUEST['Name'];
    $headers = "From: $from";
    $subject = "Submitions from College/University Admission Services Form";

    $fields = array();
    $fields{"Sname"} = "Sname";
    $fields{"Fname"} = "Fname";
    $fields{"Mname"} = "Mname";
    $fields{"Lname"} = "Lname";
    $fields{"email"} = "email";
    $fields{"history"} = "history";
    $fields{"age"} = "age";

    $fields{"SchoolsAttended"} = "SchoolsAttended";
    $fields{"CriminalRecord"} = "CriminalRecord";
    $fields{"record"} = "record";
    $fields{"status"} = "status";

    $body = "We have received the following information:\n\n"; foreach($fields as $a => $b){    $body .= sprintf("%20s: %s\n",$b,$_REQUEST[$a]); } 

    $headers2 = "From: noreply@mywebsite.org"; 
    $subject2 = "Thank you for contacting us"; 
    $autoreply = "Thank you for contacting us. Somebody will get back to you as soon as possible, usualy within 48 hours. If you have any more questions, please consult our website at www.mywebsite.org";

    if($_POST['submit']){
        if($Sname == '' || $Fname == '' || $Mname == '' || $Lname == '' || $email == '' || $history == '' || $age == '' || $sex == '' || $country == '' || $SchoolsAttended == '' || $CriminalRecord == '' || $status == ''){

    }else{
        $send = mail($to, $subject, $body, $headers);

Would this work?

{
    echo "All fields are mandatory!";
    exit;
}

if(IsInjected($email))
{
    echo "Bad email value!";
    exit;
}

$email_from = '$email';
$email_subject = "Test";

$headers = "From: $email \r\n";
//Send the email!
mail($to,$email_subject,$email_body,$headers);
//done. display thank-you message.

  else

@geneh23

What are you trying to do? Why are you changing your content? When I gave you those 2 links, either one you can used you should just follow the format and enter the same detail that you have with it. I'm not going to post the form that I did with your data. So you have to follow the format.

It's getting late.

@LastMitch I'm trying to submit a form that has the data that I either selected or imputed and have the data that I put, show up in an email. ...and I thought that's what I did..I used the form from the two links that you gave me..and I substituted my info to fit within what the form had...

I removed the die(); now I get this: "We are very sorry, but there were error(s) found with the form you submitted. These errors appear below.

The age you entered does not appear to be valid.

Please go back and fix these errors."

I don't know why I am getting this error since it's an input field and I entered two numbers..could someone help me figure out why this is? Thanks in advance!

After line 55 ($string_exp = "/^[A-Za-z .'-]+$/";), put $number_exp = "/^[0-9]+$/";
On line 71 change (!preg_match($string_exp,$age)) to (!preg_match($number_exp,$age))
The age was being validated as a string.

@geneh23

What change you made? There shouldn't be a problem with age or any category.

The issue is with this $string_exp = "/^[A-Za-z .'-]+$/";

You are missing something

It should look similiar to this

$email_exp = '/^[A-Za-z0-9._%-]+@[A-Za-z0-9.-]+\.[A-Za-z]{2,4}$/';

it should be one of those combination.

so every category is reading the same preg_match
