Form Mail Help


#1

Hi,

This is my first post on here… very excited!

Anyhow, I could not get form mail to work on here so I had a dear friend whom I really don’t want to bother again help me out.

The form does work, however, the form email comes from nobody@ninja.sd.dreamhost.com or something like that. Also, the form looks pretty unorganized. If anyone might have a suggestion, that would really be awesome. I’ve been maintaining this site for a local non-profit and just moved to dreamhost.

The site is www.car4voa.org, you’ll be able to see the source code there. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I was looking at the source code and reading the Wiki on form mail, and the only thing I saw that you don’t have is type=“text” in your email field.

I doubt that would fix it, but what the heck, it’s worth a try.

It doesn’t look like you have the input types on any of your fields. You should add type=“text”. The email one is the address you want your form to look like it came from. It might be easier if you made this a hidden type and switched the field on your form to e-mail. This way you can set up your e-mail filters to direct things from whatever@yoursite.com to a certain folder. That’s what I do anyhow.
