Lost form data

Recommended Posts

Am a total idiot/ novice at php. I was tring to get a very basic guestbook for my local NGO/ interest group set up and thought I had it. Everything works except that the form data, the most important part, never comes out in the e-mail at the other end. Can someone help? Thanks.

 

I have the following form html on a web-page:

 

<form action="sendmail.php" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data" name="input">

<h3><font color="#003366" face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">If you have any comments, news or ideas please take the time to fill out this form.</font></h3>

<p><font color="#003366" face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">Name:<br>

<input type="text" name="name"

value="yourname" size="20">

<br>

Mail:<br>

<input type="text" name="mail"

value="yourmail" size="20">

<br>

Comment:<br>

<input type="text" name="comment"

value="yourcomment" size="40">

</font></p>

<p> <font color="#003366" face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><br>

I am interested in taking out a membership, please send me some more details:

<input type="checkbox" name="InterestedinMembership">

</font> </p>

<p><br>

<input type="submit" value="Submit">

</p>

</form>

 

The php file is coded thus:

 

<?

$name = $_REQUEST['name'] ;

$mail = $_REQUEST['mail'] ;

$comment = $_REQUEST['comment'] ;

$InterestedinMembership = $_REQUEST['InterestedinMembership'] ;

 

mail( "me@myorg.com", "Feedback Form Results",

$message, "From: $mail" );

header( "Location: http://www.myorg.com/thankyou.htm" );

?>

 

 

Any ideas? Am I missing the obvious?
