Passing Strings from HTML to PHP

Post by quarinteen » Mon Mar 13, 2017 10:58 am

Hello have what is probably a basic question. Cant seem to get strings to pass from a HTML form to a PHP script. Below is just a snipe

HTML Item
<input id="name" type="text" name="name" placeholder="Your Full Name" />

passes to separate form
$Name = Trim(stripslashes($_POST['name']));

then it is put in the body of an email and sent
$Body = "";
$Body .= "Name: ";
$Body .= $Name;

When it comes to my email all thats there is Name: then the string is missing. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Do you have a full form, or just the input field?
