    Unhappy Share Contact Form

    Hey,

    I need to make a contact form that allows users to type in someone else's email address and already has subject and body text filled out by me. I want them to also be able to type a personal message as well. Then once they click submit, it sends the email to the email address they typed in.

    I have no idea how to do this though. If you can help me that'd be great, I'm struggling over here. Thank you so much.

    Ryan

    The contact form is the most basic of PHP scripts and is used in tutorials across the World Wide Web. Have you googled for a tutorial on this subject? Or searched CodingForums?

    Yeah I tried the Goog. Nothing about how to make a contact form where the user types in the email address and the email is sent to address the user defined.

    You know, like when you share a video on YouTube by email. That's exactly what I want.

    I don't believe you. At all.

    This is why I don't believe you:

    It's usually a good idea to start out with this at the VERY TOP of your CSS: * {border:0;margin:0;padding:0;}

    I didn't realize it was called a "Tell a friend" form. That makes sense now haha. Thank you for that.
