    Form results to email (Frontpage 2000)

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by WebGenii on 09-Jan-03 22:12. to add hyperlink)</P>I have created this small suggestion box in a website. http://www.aapnz.org.nz/info.htm.
    I know I must have made a mistake in the HTML somewhere. When you click on the "submit" button, it submits fine, it automatically goes to the "done" page and defaults back to the home page.
    However, !!!! when I receive the email is says "

    <font face=". I checked and double checked. I am sure it is something silly, but I would love to get it working.
    Please help because it's giving me sleepless nights <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Thanks

    This doesn't look like FP's usual WEBBOT code:

    <FORM METHOD="POST" ACTION="/java-bin/clear/form2mail">
    <INPUT TYPE="HIDDEN" NAME="target-url" VALUE="http://www.aapnz.org.nz/done.html">
    <INPUT TYPE="HIDDEN" NAME="mail-to" VALUE="karat@netsource.co.nz">
    <INPUT TYPE="HIDDEN" NAME="mail-subject" VALUE="Form Submission">
    <INPUT TYPE="HIDDEN" NAME="mail-body" VALUE="Message submitted from customer inquiry form ...

    What script are you using? Is there online documentation for it?

    Re: Form results to email (Frontpage 2000)

    Thanks for the responses. What I have done is the following. I have one form on my website that works fantastic. So I copied and pasted it to the new form.
    The "<FORM METHOD="POST" ACTION="/java-bin/clear/form2mail" etc bit is actually suggested by my ISP.
    I am a novice when it concerns forms.
    My ISP supports FrontPage because the other form works and so does the theme I use.

    Cathrine in reply to your post. I think I have. Again I have copied and pasted and the other form has about 20 questions and they all work.

    Thanks anyway

    Where in the email does the <font color=blue>"

    <font face=". </font color=blue> appear? Subject line, body?

    We've got our detective hats on now!

    Actually Jefferson - I think you've got it there.
    If you look at the line:
    <font color=blue><INPUT TYPE="HIDDEN" NAME="mail-body" VALUE="Message submitted from customer inquiry form </font color=blue>
    it isn't terminated with a > bracket. The next right bracket pops up in the ...
    Oh, wait a minute - in the

    <font face=" that follows there is only one ". Put in a double quote with a value inside, and see if that solves the problem - after that go back to the previous lack up bracket problem.
    Probably a combination of things.

    What is the URL of the form that works? I suspect there is some difference in the code.

    Re: Form results to email (Frontpage 2000)

    Hi there, thanks so much for all your help.
    I did have another look at the HTML and as WebGenii suggested I had a " and a > missing.
    The form now looks as follows on my email
    FORM DATA BEGINS
    <S3> "the entry"
    FORM DATA ENDS

    Again thanks heaps for all your help
