Need Help with Web Form (URGENT)
I have a customer who has asked me to fix this web form on their website. I manage their server/network and general web page maintenance for them. The site was made with Dreamweaver CS3 and the company just wants it to work. LOL

I don't have any experience with fillable web forms, but if anyone does if you could help me out I would really appreciate it. There are a bunch of blank radio buttons which shouldn't even be there, and the form doesnt actualy generate the email, just a blank email with the send to address in it.

http://www.classichomestx.com/ContactUs.html

I'm not getting paid to fix this for them, just helping them out. However, I would be grateful and I am sure I can find something like some schwag I got at a game trade show or something to give the person who can help me out. Either PM me or email me if you can help.

Edit: Real quick, what they wanted originaly was a web form that when submitted emailed the info to the person in the company responsible for the new contacts. I told them I would try to fix this for them by Monday when I go in to train one of their people on how to add For Sale listings to their website. As I said I am not being paid for this, but they are a really good customer so I want to help them, and I will be as generous as I can to the person who helps me out.

don't know anything about dreamweaver, but my guess is that the information is getting generated based on some records, first check would be the tool that creates the form, second check might be if a record has become 'unlinked' and then no longer appears in the tool. deleting the question and all options may fix it, alternate method might be to delete the form and make a new one. worst option would be to look at the data used to build the form. anyway good luck.

Re: Need Help with Web Form (URGENT)
I'm working on the problem now.
I'll send you the updated/fixed code in a minute.

Edit:
Okay it's fixed, I didn't spend my time testing or making it pretty so you will have to do that.

Have fun.

P.S If I may make a suggestion, don't use Dreamweaver, it's best to use Notepad++.
Dreamweaver make's junk code and it's quite useless.

I know how to use it, I used it for year's.
I find Notepad++ much better as all the code is produced by me not a program.
Not to mention it's nice not having a memory hogger.

I tried the fixed.rar and it didn't work but I can't find where it's failing.

Did you try it on a server, when testing with PHP it MUST be on a server.

You sure it's running PHP? Do a PHP Check.
What doesn't work? White screen of death? No e-mail after submit?
( You gotta change the e-mail within the php file by the way )

Could you give me a little more information?

ok I checked the php, the email is correct. The server is running php, but the screen I get on submit says "Thank you for submitting your information" and that's it.

i'll check the server out more momentarily. I will be out of the office for a few hours but will post here tonight.

Uh okay, did you check the e-mail?
"Thank you for submitting your information" is a sign that it e-mailed properly.
There are I do believe two error catch's so I don't see what the problem is if you are receiving "Thank you for submitting your information".

Nothing stops you from doing so in Dreamweaver, the generated code isn't the only feature in Dreamweaver. One can use Notepad++, but I see too much of this "Dreamweaver is bad".

Dreamweaver is NOT bad, neither is Frontpage.
I just PREFER Notepad++ and I recommend anyone serious in web-development to use something other than Dreamweaver/frontpage.

Eclipse has all of those other features and more, and is open-source. Dreamweaver is some kind of freaky product from the nineties that's out of time.

Dreamweaver discredits the generated-code philosophy by doing it so badly. I don't think any serious web-designers use that feature any more. Not any of the good ones, anyway.

All the serious web-designers I know always use some type of text editor.
( Notepad, Notepad++, Wordpad, Word, etc )

It's not it matter's, it's all personal preference.
It does affect how you get a job at places like xHTMLPros, if you use Dreamweaver and try to apply for a job there they would just toss you aside and send you a generic Sorry you are not hired e-mail.

Like I said, it was just a Suggestion I was making.
No more, no less.

Definitely, but that elitism is beyond surreal

It's not elitism. Dreamweaver's just really dated and people use it out of habit. It's of a different era.

The only feature that really sells it is its integration with Fireworks, which can help designers make really great looking fluid-width sites with a minimum amount of fuss (and ugly HTML). No-one actually uses that feature though, except for my wife. Practically every professional Dreamweaver user uses Photoshop, and there's no integration with that. So they're not really gaining anything.

I thought they added integration between Dreamweaver and Photoshop in CS3/CS4?

It's nowhere near the level that Fireworks has.
