Recommended Posts

I have been working on testing this code for wahile and have everything working excpt teh selct boxes. I am not sure of what is causing the problem. The php /html code is below. Some html elements are cut out. Some useful info below:
a) Your PHP version, platform (operating system), and webserver : PHP 4 /windowes webserver: Xampp
B) Your hosting company: localhost
c) Pertinent php.ini settings (SafeMode=On, for example).: included in code. otherwise default
d) Error messages if any are generated: none.
e) Code snippets, enclosed in the php bbcode tags:

[code]
<?php
//set ini variables to override php.ini fo rthis form
ini_set("SMTP","localhost");
ini_set("sendmail_from","jtesolin@localhost");

  if ($_SERVER['REQUEST_METHOD'] != 'POST'){
      $form_send = $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'];
?>
