    Can someone please resolve my form issues?!

    Hi all,

    New to the forum. I have downloaded a template off template monster and am currently in the process of modifying it to suit my needs.

    I am currently working on the contact page which has a form and appears to be working fine however I have yet to receive an e-mail once the form is submitted. The forms uses Javascript (forms.js) and a MailHandler.php file.

    I cant understand what is going wrong as everything seems to be working but perhaps im missing the obvious - You can view the page on http://zoeandeddie.webspace.virginme...m/index-4.html

    Below is the content of the two files - ive replaced my actual email address with 'myemail@address.com:

    forms.js

    Code:
    ;(function($){
    	$.fn.forms=function(o){
    		return this.each(function(){
    			var th=$(this)
    				,_=th.data('forms')||{
    					errorCl:'error',
    					emptyCl:'empty',
    					invalidCl:'invalid',
    					notRequiredCl:'notRequired',

    Code:
    <br />
    <b>Parse error</b>:  parse error, unexpected '{' in <b>/tier-11/pwpstore3/43/zoeandeddie/htdocs/mailhandler.php</b> on line <b>37</b><br />

    I'm wondering if this is something to do with the server I am using just now to test the website in that it may not support PHP5?

    Could this be the probllem? And if so, what modifications can I make to the code to make it PHP4 compatible?

    Thanks in advance.

    are you absolutely certain that is the code you have in the php file?

    also I tried : http://zoeandeddie.webspace.virginme...ailhandler.php

    and the file doesnt appear to be there....

    Ok first 'bin/MailHandler.php' in the forms.js replace with ur contact form url
    for me it was contactengine.php

    $(function(){
    $('#contact-form').forms({
    ownerEmail:'myemail@address.com'
    })
    })
    Not sure u need this, with my template I commented it out because it was causing multiple form submissions (like 5!) haha.

    On ur contact page be sure to include the action
    <form action="contactengine.php" id="ContactForm">

    Now for the php contact form I used the simplest one I could find as complex ones arnt needed for this type of form:

    PHP Code:
    <?php
    /* Simple form submission */

    $emailFrom "fagarddesigns@gmail.com";
    $emailTo "alexander_fagard@mac.com";
    $Subject "FAGARDDESIGNS - Website contact form submission";
    $name Trim(stripslashes($_POST['name'])); 
    $phone Trim(stripslashes($_POST['phone'])); 
    $email Trim(stripslashes($_POST['email'])); 
    $message Trim(stripslashes($_POST['message'])); 

    // prepare email body text
    $Body "Form submission from contact page. Please answer within 2 business days as per policy.";
    $Body .= "Name: ";
    $Body .= $name;
    $Body .= "\n";
    $Body .= "Phone: ";
    $Body .= $phone;
    $Body .= "\n";
    $Body .= "Email: ";
    $Body .= $email;
    $Body .= "\n";
    $Body .= "Message: ";
    $Body .= $message;
    $Body .= "\n";

    // send email 
    $success mail($emailTo$Subject$Body"From: <$emailFrom>");
    ?>

    I just solved the problem with the email functionality. I hope you'll still find it relevant by the time you get this;

    Open the MailHandler.php script and look for the line with this part

    ". $_POST["name"];"

    Try closing up the space between the full stop (.) and the dollar sign ($)

    e.g. ".$_POST["name"];"

    Do this for all other lines containing this.

    This should fix the bug. Please let me know if it works for you.
    Cheers!

    hello.

    I have the same problem with the same code (template...)

    On the instructions they put you have to change owneremail and thats it. But it doesn't works, and I really dont know if there is fault of the server, or I'm missing some ';'....

    I didnt want to open a new thread so I hope we can have a solution (I already tried the ones you commented some months ago)

    the mailhandler respose is mail sent, and the contact-form shows the sent message, but there is no email even at the spam folder, i dunno what to do. Thanks in advance

    solution: server problem.

    It took me forever to figure this one out...

    Change your MailHandler.php code to look like the below or just cut and paste this code. Note: make sure you are entering a valid email address on the HTML contact form or it will not work, I tested with my yahoo account email address.

    PHP Code:
    <?php
        $owner_email 
    "YourEmailAddressHere@xxx.com";
        
    $headers 'From:' $_POST["email"];
        
    $subject 'A message from your site visitor ' $_POST["name"];
        
    $messageBody "";
        
        if(
    $_POST['name']!='nope'){
            
    $messageBody .= '<p>Visitor: ' $_POST["name"] . '</p>' "\n";
            
    $messageBody .= '<br>' "\n";
        }
        if(
    $_POST['email']!='nope'){
            
    $messageBody .= '<p>Email Address: ' $_POST['email'] . '</p>' "\n";
            
    $messageBody .= '<br>' "\n";
        }else{
            
    $headers '';
        }
        if(
    $_POST['state']!='nope'){        
            
    $messageBody .= '<p>State: ' $_POST['state'] . '</p>' "\n";
            
    $messageBody .= '<br>' "\n";
        }
        if(
    $_POST['phone']!='nope'){        
            
    $messageBody .= '<p>Phone Number: ' $_POST['phone'] . '</p>' "\n";
            
    $messageBody .= '<br>' "\n";
        }    
        if(
    $_POST['fax']!='nope'){        
            
    $messageBody .= '<p>Fax Number: ' $_POST['fax'] . '</p>' "\n";
            
    $messageBody .= '<br>' "\n";
        }
        if(
    $_POST['message']!='nope'){
            
    $messageBody .= '<p>Message: ' $_POST['message'] . '</p>' "\n";
        }
        
        if(
    $_POST["stripHTML"] == 'true'){
            
    $messageBody strip_tags($messageBody);
        }
        
            
    mail($owner_email$subject$messageBody$headers)

    ?>

    I'm having the same problems here. I am wondering if I need to change the SMTPmailserver to something other than "localhost". Client's website is hosted at Bluehost, but all mail is setup through gmail exchanges. Is it possible to set it up to keep this scheme (mail at domain is forwarded to google exchange) but still have the form send email?

    welll, this is it, you can change with css the form, colors, and other stuff, but this is that make the form function. :B
    EDIT: everything in black, you can change it. BLACK *<B>*

    I just registered hoping to help someone else in the same situation.

    I bought a template from template monsters and I was stuck with the contact form.

    After various googles and code attempts, what I've done to send email from the contact form is this:

    On MailHandler.php replace (or inactive) the first line:
    PHP Code:
    <?php
        
    //$owner_email = $_POST["owner_email"];
        
    $owner_email "youremail@yourdomain.com";
    I found the solution in this thread:
    link
    Ironically, the author wrote this solution as an addition to the question he has been asked and he solved two problems in one post in two different ways.
    I Love Internet.
