Hi all,

Im doing my myspace profile and im using submit buttons in a form and the form action as the url for the page that the user gets taken to, however my external links dont work, and i also want them to be opened in a new window. How can i do this?

This is the current code for a link to my website:

<form id="form2" name="form2" method="post" action="[URL]http://www.grafax.co.uk[/URL]">
 
<input type="submit" name="Submit2" value=".:Grafax:." style="width: 80px" />
 
</form>

The link dosnt work, it comes up with an "internal server error" but is ok wen i try typing in the url, and i also need it to come in a new window but i cannot use javascript! just CSS and HTML!!

Thanks every1!!

i am fairly new to this but i'll give it a go so corrections would be appriciated.

i think the problem is the fact that you are using attributes that you do not need

id/name inless somthing is going to call this (unlikely/wasteful on MySpace) you should remove this.

but the main problem is the method attribute...you are posting sumthing this is ent to the server but there is no information held within the form. THIS IS WHY YOU ARE GETTING THE ERROR!!

so simply remove the method attribute and you are done. the form name attribute will not be nessasary. better to remove it (the removing of the name/id attribute will not affect anithing...its just not needed...if it is then of course leave it).

hope that was useful.

method=post means you want to write new data to a file. You have no file open, and you do not intend to write to a file.
