Contact Form


Recommended Posts

Hi I am a newbie with PHP. I created a contact form following a tutorial online and have uploaded the index.html and contact-form.php form to a server with php enabled.


I am getting an error message


Warning! Please fill all the fields. ”; } else { mail($to,$subject,$msg,”From:”.$email); echo “


I am wondering if anyone can advise me?



The PHP:

	$to="calming1@yahoo.co.uk";/*Your Email*/
	$subject="Message from the website";

	$date=date("l, F jS, Y");
	$time=date("h:i A");


		Message sent from website form on date  $date, hour: $time.\n	
		Name: $name\n
		Email: $email\n	
		Message: $message\n
	if($email=="") {
	echo "<div class='alert alert-danger'>
			  <a class='close' data-dismiss='alert'>×</a>
			  <strong>Warning!</strong> Please fill all the fields.
	} else {
	echo "<div class='alert alert-success'>
			  <a class='close' data-dismiss='alert'>×</a>
			  <strong>Thank you for your message!</strong>


<form id="contact" class="form-inline" action="contact-form.php" method="post" accept-charset="utf-8">	
					<div class="form-group pull-left">
						<label class="sr-only" for="name">Name</label>
						<input type="text" class="form-control" id="name" placeholder="Name" name="name">

					<div class="form-group pull-right">
						<label class="sr-only" for="email">Email</label>
						<input type="email" class="form-control" id="email" placeholder="Email" name="email">

					<textarea class="form-control pull-left" rows="8" placeholder="Message" name="message"></textarea>

					<button type="submit" class="btn pull-right">Send email</button>

I copied your files and uploaded them to my server. They worked just fine when I filled in all the fields. When I didn't though the message came out with a bit of garbage at the start of it. That anchor tag I suspect. So I removed it. What is the purpose of the anchors in front of your messages, or don't you know?


PS - It is recommended to use the appropriate array to search for your inputs. Since you know it is coming from $_POST, why do you look in $_REQUEST?
