Yup, although you might wanna make sure and wait for another commenter to confirm my answer as I am not completely sure. Better yet, why don't you call the iPage guys because they can answer your iPage question better...
A way for you to use php is open a free iPage domain with lycos (they support php) and just have only your script on that domain. Point your form to the script and then have it redirect after the submit to your site..
You can use my easy to setup mail script..
Lycos supports PHP?.
Are you sure? Because I have an account on Tripod and I don't know how to use it. At first I uploaded a file with phpinfo(); in it. Then I put it in the cgi-bin directory. But still, it doesn't work. Maybe I am doing something wrong. Can you show me how I can use PHP on Tripod?.
I also have another question. When you said that I should point my form to the script on there. What script do I need to have there?.
Cgi-bins are for perl scripts not php..
I was mistaken. My buddy told me that they did support php. But, I dont know, so look around for some free web service that offers php support. I like the structure of php better than perl so I feel it would be worth it..
If you go to that link I posted earlier it takes you to a mail demo. Try it out and send an email to your self. The demo only has the minimal features. But you can click the download link and download the zip file to your desktop..
Open it and you will see mmex.php & a tutorial..
There is no need to alter it!.
Just read the tutorial and have your html form point to the location where you uploaded mmex.php (<form action="adomain/../mmex.php">).
Hope this helps...
Thanks for the reply. I managed to upload mmex.php to a host that supporst PHP. I didn't alter it in any way. For a while it was working. But now there is a problem..
<input type="hidden" name="recipient" value="">.
<input type="hidden" name="subject" value="Subject">.
<input type="hidden" name="ip_address" value="yes">.
That's the code up until "recipient". I didn't include the rest of the code because it wouldn't matter anyways right?.
Once again, when I am taken to that page, I get.
Recipient is empty.
Subject is empty..
If recipient & subject are hidden types, they wouldnt need to be in "req_fields"..
Required fields are only for the fields that the user can enter..
So there is no need to put any hidden type in the "req_field" value..
Recipient is only required in the demo because the user has to enter it. In the actual php script (mmex.php) that you download, recipient is assumed as a hidden type & the code is written differently..
Sorry about any confusion but that should fix the problem..
If you cant get it to work, email me at.
That worked. Thanks a lot..
That's a really helpful script.
But now I am having more problems with my form. I put my form on my webpage and I customized the colours to fit my website. Now the only thing that is missing the drop down arrows when using <SELECT>. Do you know of any way to change that? Everyone is sayint that it's not possible, but I am sure that I've seen the colour of the arrow changed on some site. I just don't remember where. And I searched on Google.
If you know how, or know any iPage site that has this, can you please help me, because it looks very bad when just the SELECT's arrows are light blue..
There is no way to change the arrow with that particular tag..
The select box you saw may have been a dhtml select box. So, the user may have made some code that output a "select" looking box but he probably didint actually use the <select> tag..
Maybe you could use checkboxes or radio butons...
Alright, thanks a lot for all your help. If I ever find that site, I'll post to show what he did because I know a lot of people have been looking for this..
Sorry, but I am having another problem with the script, can you help me please?.
The problem is that I made "redirect" a hidden type and gave it a value of "http://www.google.com".
Now, when I submit the form, I get the email but this is what I get on the page....
The requested URL /ad2solutions/$redirect was not found on this server..
Can you tell me what is causing this?.
Show me the html code that you are using. That would help...
Here you go....
This is from the begining of the form.
<! ***************START FORM************************************************************* >.
<form method="POST" enctype="multipart/form-data" action="http://myaddress/mmex.php" onsubmit="return FrontPage_Form1_Validator(this)" name="FrontPage_Form1">.
<input type="hidden" name="req_fields" value="FullName">.
<input type="hidden" name="recipient" value="">.
And I didn't alter the PHP file...
It was my fault,.
In mmex.php, when I do the statement:.
That apparently doesnt work, you need double quotations..
So I changed it, sorry about that. Just download the zip file again that contains the modified mmex.php. You should be fine after that...
