Dynamic Subject Field

Postby RossM » Wed Mar 21, 2012 7:35 am

Hi all,

Bit of a php newbie but getting there !

I have a form which works fine so far. However I would like to make the subject of the email change according to a particular field. Example:

The form has 10 fields, 9 of which must be filled in (have Javascript validation on these that is working ok). The 10th field - a textbox - determines the subject of the email. ie If that field is left blank the email subject is X whereas if something is entered into that box, the email subject is Y. It doesn't matter what is entered or anything like that.

Any advice gratefully received.

If your field is called field10 you'll want something like this

Code: Select all

if (!isset($_POST['field10'])||$_POST['field10']=='')
{$subject = 'x';}
else
{$subject = $_POST[field10'];}
