Submit form to email

Post by DeathsEssence on May 12th 2011, 6:06 am

i've used some websites to generate the form for me... mostly and i've added a few things myself from my VERY VERY limited, HTML knowledge, But pretty much i wanted this whole "form" to email to my email and i didnt know exactly how, and i cant find links that explain it in a way i understand, hell i dont even know if i'm asking the right questions. please help?

I realise, there are parted here that arent needed, im hosting this on Forumoition.com ... http://www.noeit.com/

currently, it doesnt email me, and just sends me back to my index Sad

(i edited the mail: so eveyone doesnt know my email, and Snipped the main body of text out to save space.)
Code:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
<title>www.NOEIT.com</title>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="view.css" media="all">

Posting consecutively is not tolerated unless separated by 24 hours since the last post. In future, please use the edit button to avoid receiving any warnings.

You'll need to create an HTML page and paste the code there.

Form submission like yours will not work on forumotion forums. In your case, you need a file named myemail.php that reads the submitted form data and sends the email. But PHP is not available on forumotion forums (and never will be), so I'd suggest moving on to something else.

No problem! While you wait for someone else to give you the same answer, perhaps you might want to brush up on your HTML:

What does that have to deal with anything? He told you that it isn't possible and it isn't.

i dont take the word of anyone that takes advantage of the little website icon to try and get people to delete their forums... i clicked it to view his site and wasn't impressed i dont know much HTML if any, but his word instantly became dirt in my eyes at that point. i wanted someone elses opinion.... the rules about putting your website link says it has to be a Forumotion forum..... clearly he broke the rules that should be the only explanation i need....

btw... getting slightly off topic... but if it cant be fixed then my problem remains, is there a way to make a submittable form on Forumotion at all?

Actually that link is to allow a member to unsubscribe from a forum. It's a question that comes up here on a fairly regular basis. The only way to delete a forum is through the ACP, and only the founder can access that page on the ACP.

And to answer your new question, of course it's possible to create a form on forumotion. You just can't use the ACTION attribute to submit it to the server -- you must use javascript to parse the form when the user clicks the appropriate button.
