Form Script Help...so appreciated

Recommended Posts

Hey there ya'll...I'm trying to get this simple form together to be sent back to an email address.
Can someone help me out with the correct coding? I keep running into problems! (here are two different pages: 1) the form page, and 2) the sendmail.php file the form requests to send the information
Thank you...

<form name="form1" method="post" action="sendmail.php">
          <table width="600" height="700" border="0" align="center" cellpadding="5" cellspacing="0">
            <tr>

The email supposed to return all of the form fields returns this information only:
[i]From: www@host28.christianwebhost.com[/i]
[i]Class Date and Locaion:

EPSA CAP2 Evaluation Results[/i]


  For some reason, I'm missing the correct variables to grab the information from the form, and return them in the email...

Thanks thorpe...

if (mail("$to","$from","$subject","$body","$Q1-Q10"))

you are trying to send your variables as a fourth argument to the mail function.  If you read the manual, you will see that the 4th argument for the mail function is for additional headers. 

also, i don't know what this whole "$Q1-Q10" business is... I hope that's not some attempt to have it automatically echo all of those variables out.  Unless that's some kind of shortcut I don't know about? Doesn't seem to work for me...

try this:

if (mail("$to","$from","$subject","$body $Q1,$Q2,$Q3,$Q4,$Q5,$Q6,$Q7,$Q8,$Q9,$Q10"))

you might wanna look into using an array for your questions though... it might just make things a bit easier for you...just FYI...

Thanks for the last response...
I've changed the code to a much simpler, much easier way for me to understand. I just keep getting stuck on two more things:

1) I keep receiving this error in the code, although the form still sends.
        [i]Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/tltaylor/estateplanningschools-www/sendmail.php:2) in /home/tltaylor/estateplanningschools-www/sendmail.php on line 46
[/i]
2) Also, how do I format text within the php script (say, when I receive the email of the user input information, can I make some titles [b]BOLD[/b] when it comes to me in an email?

Here's the new code:

<title>sendmail.php</title>
<?
  $email = $_REQUEST['email'] ;
  $name = $_REQUEST['name'] ;
  $classdateandtime = $_REQUEST['classdateandtime'] ;
  $instructors = $_REQUEST['instructors'] ;
  $address = $_REQUEST['address'] ;
  $city = $_REQUEST['city'] ;
  $state = $_REQUEST['state'] ;
  $zip = $_REQUEST['zip'] ;
  $phone = $_REQUEST['phone'] ;
  $Q1 = $_REQUEST['Q1'] ;
  $Q2 = $_REQUEST['Q2'] ;
  $Q3 = $_REQUEST['Q3'] ;
  $Q4 = $_REQUEST['Q4'] ;
  $Q5 = $_REQUEST['Q5'] ;
  $Q6 = $_REQUEST['Q6'] ;
  $Q7 = $_REQUEST['Q7'] ;
  $Q8 = $_REQUEST['Q8'] ;
  $Q9 = $_REQUEST['Q9'] ;
  $comments = $_REQUEST['comments'] ;

  mail( "myemail@mymail.com", "EPSA CAP2 Evaluation Results",
  "From: $email
  Name: $name
  Class Date and Time: $classdateandtime
  Instructors: $instructors
  Address: $address
  City: $city

  Phone Number: $phone
 
  This learning Experience was: $Q1
  Were the stated learning objectives met?: $Q2
  If applicable, were prerequisites appropriate?: $Q3
  Were program materials both accurate and effective?: $Q4
  Did program materials contribute to the achievement of the learning Objectives?: $Q5
  Was the time allotted to the learning experience appropriate?: $Q6
  Were the facilities and/or the technological equipment appropriate?: $Q7
  Were the handouts and advanced preparation materials satisfactory?: $Q8
  Was the classroom facilitator's knowledge and experience satisfactory for the course material?: $Q9
 
  Comments: $comments" );

header( "Location: http://www.estateplanningschools.com/thankyou.html" );
?>

the cannot modify headers problem is because you have html output before your header function at the bottom of the script. I see this:

<title>sendmail.php</title>

at the top of your script.  that's html output.  get rid of it. you can't have any html output before a header function call.  not even a space before your <? tag. 

as far as making text bold in your email, you would do it just like normal html.  however the user's email program may or may not be set to allow html code, so it might not show up for them, just FYI.

Thanks for the help!

Though I didn't think html could work within the <? and ?> of the php code?
I tried it and the email came back with the <bold> </bold> tags inside the text of the email.
Hmm...

Thanks you anyhow...

Hmm, I've tried that and am having trouble with that form.
I need to figure out three things that aren't happening at the moment:
1) check to see if each form has been filled out
2) send the results to my email lee@thesudanhouse.com
Here's the code:
[code]<?php
if (isset($_POST["submit"])) {

// Check for empty fields
if ($_POST["email"] == "") {
     die("Please fill out all fields");
}

if ($_POST["name"] == "")
{
    die("Please fill out all fields");
}
// And so on for each required field ...

  $to = "lee@estateplanningschools.com";
  $email = $_POST['email'] ;
  $subject = "EPSA CAP2 Evaluation Results";
  $name = $_POST['name'] ;
  $classdateandtime = $_POST['classdateandtime'] ;
  $instructors = $_POST['instructors'] ;
  $address = $_POST['address'] ;
  $city = $_POST['city'] ;
  $state = $_POST['state'] ;
  $zip = $_POST['zip'] ;
  $phone = $_POST['phone'] ;
  $Q1 = $_POST['Q1'] ;
  $Q2 = $_POST['Q2'] ;
  $Q3 = $_POST['Q3'] ;
  $Q4 = $_POST['Q4'] ;
  $Q5 = $_POST['Q5'] ;
  $Q6 = $_POST['Q6'] ;
  $Q7 = $_POST['Q7'] ;
  $Q8 = $_POST['Q8'] ;
  $Q9 = $_POST['Q9'] ;
  $comments = $_POST['comments'] ;
  $message = "From: $email
   <strong>Name:</strong> $name
   Class Date and Time: $classdateandtime
   Instructors: $instructors
   Address: $address
   City: $city
   State: $state

   Phone Number: $phone
 
   This learning Experience was: $Q1
   Were the stated learning objectives met?: $Q2
   If applicable, were prerequisites appropriate?: $Q3
   Were program materials both accurate and effective?: $Q4
   Did program materials contribute to the achievement of the learning Objectives?: $Q5
   Was the time allotted to the learning experience appropriate?: $Q6
   Were the facilities and/or the technological equipment appropriate?: $Q7
   Were the handouts and advanced preparation materials satisfactory?: $Q8
   Was the classroom facilitator's knowledge and experience satisfactory for the course material?: $Q9
   
   Comments: $comments";
if (!mail($to, $subject, $message, $headers)) {
    $error = "<p class=\"error\">Couldn't send message!</p>\n";
  }
}

echo isset($error) ? $error : '';

   header( "Location: http://www.estateplanningschools.com/thankyou.html" );
?>[/code]

3) I am desiring to use this code to output the information into a .pdf file that is self-written by the script.

Does that make sense? And from your experience, is it possible to accomplish?
I've been looking at pdfLIB and feel that it is...
Maybe you've got some experience with where to start?

Thanks again...
