    Unhappy How to get my newsletter box to mail me the submitted info?

    Hello
    i dont know if i should post this here or in the php section.. i'm actually a non-technical guy .. know nothing about html or php or css.. but i downloaded this template and made my website www.researchwritersinc.com .. now as you can see there's this 'newsletter' box there .. i was a script or something that would mail me that email address when written and submitted from there..
    is that possible, can anyone kindly help me with that, please?

    thanks in advance!

    just to add to it .. here's the script on the html page

    <div id="newsletter_section">
    <h1>Newsletter</h1>
    <p>Please enter your email address to sign up our newsletter.</p>
    <form action="#" method="get">
    <input type="text" value="" id="newsletter" style="width: 230px;" /><br />
    <input type="submit" value="Submit" id="submit" />
    </form>
    </div>

    yo- if i am understanding you correctly you want an email to be sent to you via some box they write in on the page? This is very possible... The link does not work for me... I assume since you mentioned php in your original thread you are running a php page.. I would PM a mod to move this to the php side of the forum

    I code C hash-tag .Net
    Reference: W3C W3CWiki .Net Lib
    Validate: html CSS
    Debug: Chrome FireFox IE

    Hi, thanks for the response.
    nope i am not running a PHP page, but i dont know much about scripts and was told to make a submit button work, you need to make a php page working at its back, that will eventually be written is this html script .. e.g. <form action="newsletter.php" method="get">
