View Full Version : 'Submit' buttons



11-10-2001, 07:28 PM
In building my website, I decided, to help prevent spam, to make a email form instead of just giving my email address. Once my website was not far from complete, I got to the form building. I managed to make it to my needs, but when you click on 'Submit' nothing happens. What is the code, or whatever, to allow the message to be sent to my address?

I built my site using Frontpage Express 2.02.1131 AKA ver 2. The site contains frames, this make any difference?

I have also tried using different hosts, but no difference was made.

Please tell me how to do this.

To get this to send directly from the web form, you'll need a email script attached to your site.
I have one here (if I can find it) that may work for you. Email me at mike.l@ywamalumni.com and I'll send it to you and try to help you get it to work.

Add an action to the form tag as follows:
<FORM ACTION='mailto:me@wherever.co.nz'
NAME='GadgetForm'
METHOD='POST'
ENCTYPE='text/plain'>

Note: replace the me@wherever with your email address and give the form a suitable name.
