    [RESOLVED] How to email from WEBpage?

    Dear Friends,

    I have built a website with a Page named Contact.html, here the viewer will enter all his data Like
    Name |__________|
    Email |__________|
    Sub: |___________|
    Msg |______________________________________________________|

    | Submit| < when he clicks the Submit button the msg will be mailed to the email address mentioned already in the Contact.html page.

    I tried a lot of combinations, but failed..Can you guys help me ?

    Thanks
    Rahul

    Re: How to email from WEBpage?

    PHP has to be run through a web server or else it won't be interpreted. I'm guessing you're just trying to link to the PHP page in the form's action.

    For example: The URL will have to be http://servername/page and note file://c:/page. If you don't even have a web server, then you need something like Xampp.

    Dear Peejavery,
    Thanks for replying , I dont have the faintest idea how to mail from webpage,
    I just googled some forms downloaded them & tried but failed.

    I have a website http://www.cormed.co.in , there I have this Contactfrm.html & email_form.php files , I just did whatever was mentioned in that page how to do it.

    But nothing worked out it only says You mail is sent successfully , we will contact you later.( This is a string already inserted at the page it self.!!
    Please tell me the steps in order so I can make it work
    Thank you once again

    PHP's mail() function will not return an error to the PHP console. That's why it says it's successful. And since you have no idea what I'm talking about concerning PHP...you need to contact the server admins of that domain.

    I've already told you...it has nothing to do with client-side HTML. Do some research! This will help you.

    I already told you...you cannot do it with HTML. And, if you aren't willing to use PHP...then quite simply you cannot have a mailer.

    Re: How to email from WEBpage?

    The very first line of contact.php needs to be removed. There is no PHP on that page at all...so you wouldn't open a PHP tag (and it's invalid anyway).

    In your send_contact.php file...

    • $from address as listed as a posted variable. Make it plain text. It isn't from the POST data in the form.
    • $from_name has a space in the $_POST variable call
    • $body is empty...so the e-mail won't have any text

    Dear PeejAvery,

    But the Contact.php shows all the boxes & msgbox properly along with submit button.
    I can not use it???? !!!
    /q $body is empty...so the e-mail won't have any text /q>

    What has to be done in the $body part?

    Thanks

    I never said that at all. Do you honestly never read the posts?

    Opposite of empty = fill. So...fill the variable with text!

    In the past I have given up on you simply because you put no effort into your work at all. You expect everyone else to do everything for you. That is not why CodeGuru exists! So...here is a completely functional example of PHP mailer (which I have already linked too as well). If you cannot figure it out from this...then you need to research and learn.

    mailer.php (You only need 1 file...not two)
    PHP Code:
    <html>
    <body>

    <?php
    if (isset($_POST['email'])) {
      
    $email $_POST['email'] ;
      
    $subject $_POST['subject'] ;
      
    $message $_POST['message'] ;
      if (
    mail("your_email_address@domain.com"$subject$message"From:" $email)) {
        echo 
    'E-mail sent';
      }
    }
    else {
    ?>
    <form method="post" action="<?php echo $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']; ?>">
      Email: <input type="text" name="email" /><br />
      Subject: <input type="text" name="subject" /><br />
      Message:<br />
      <textarea name="message" cols="40" rows="15"></textarea><br />
      <input type="submit" value="Send" />
    </form>
    <?php ?>

    </body>
    </html>

    Dear PeejAvery,

    Thank you so much, You are a real friend.I am eager to learn, the Books , confuse me. Programmers like you, they know the subject well, I can always learn from them, but when you need to learn from them, they are either offline or they do not reply. The problem with me is , I learn the first line, then When i Study the 2nd line, I forget the first line., after a few days I forget the whole thing.have pity on me.

    Anyway I am now trying the thing with your code.If anything comes across, can I seek help from you ?

    Thanks & Regards
    Rahul
