Beginner PHP email submit form

Recommended Posts

Hi guys. I am very new to PHP and have little or no knowledge at the moment. Currently I have a live site but would like to add a email submit form that would send the users information to a certain email and number of emails. A file submit option would be handy too.

I have tried a few pre made scripts and templates but just cant figure out how to make any of them work. I use Dreamweaver to code and manage my live site.

Below is a picture of the message I am getting in Dreamweaver and a link to the script I am using.

For real simple, try something like the following.

if(!empty($_POST['subject']) || (!empty($_POST['message'])) ) {
    mail('youremail@example.com', $_POST['subject'], $_POST['message']);
<!DOCTYPE html>
        <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
        <form method="post">
            <input type="text" name="subject" />
            <textarea rows="4" cols="50" name="message"></textarea>
            <button type="submit">Submit</button>

Your DreamWeaver error message is telling that the site definition is incorrect. Go to Site > Manage Sites, select your site definition in the list, and click the edit button. You'll want to select the 'Servers' panel, select your server in that list, and click the edit button once again. There, update your server location, default path, username, and password, and click 'Test'. This will let you know whether or not the information you entered is valid and able to be used by DW.
