Hi, first of all I'm not sure if my topic is in the correct section and I'm kind of new to PHP, more focus in HTML & CSS.

I'm trying to recreate this Schedule an Appointment form like in this site https://coopervision.com.my/fabulous40 (so far trying to focus on the email function first)

And I follow the tutorial from https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qw49NP5cgpY&t=626s . But that tutorial only contain one input text that will be insert inside mail body. What if I want to insert several input (select input, radio input & calendar input) inside the mail body too?

So far I tried with select input 1st, but it wont work. May I know what I do wrong?

Code: Select all

<?php
//index.php

$error = '';
$outlet = '';
$name = '';
$email = '';
$subject = '';
$message = '';

function clean_text($string)
{
	$string = trim($string);
	$string = stripslashes($string);
	$string = htmlspecialchars($string);
	return $string;
}

if(isset($_POST["submit"]))
{
	if(empty($_POST["outlet"]))
	{
		$error .= '<p><label class="text-danger">Outlet is required</label></p>';
	}
	else
	{
		$outlet = clean_text($_POST["outlet"]);
	}
	if(empty($_POST["name"]))
	{
		$error .= '<p><label class="text-danger">Please Enter your Name</label></p>';
	}
	else
	{
		$name = clean_text($_POST["name"]);
		if(!preg_match("/^[a-zA-Z ]*$/",$name))
		{
			$error .= '<p><label class="text-danger">Only letters and white space allowed</label></p>';
		}
	}
	if(empty($_POST["email"]))
	{
		$error .= '<p><label class="text-danger">Please Enter your Email</label></p>';
	}
	else
	{
		$email = clean_text($_POST["email"]);
		if(!filter_var($email, FILTER_VALIDATE_EMAIL))
		{
			$error .= '<p><label class="text-danger">Invalid email format</label></p>';
		}
	}
	if(empty($_POST["subject"]))
	{
		$error .= '<p><label class="text-danger">Subject is required</label></p>';
	}
	else
	{
		$subject = clean_text($_POST["subject"]);
	}
	if(empty($_POST["message"]))
	{
		$error .= '<p><label class="text-danger">Message is required</label></p>';
	}
	else
	{
		$message = clean_text($_POST["message"]);
	}
	if($error == '')
	{
		require 'class/class.phpmailer.php';
		$mail = new PHPMailer;
		$mail->IsSMTP();								//Sets Mailer to send message using SMTP
		$mail->Host = xxxxx';		//Sets the SMTP hosts of your Email hosting, this for Godaddy
		$mail->Port = '26';								//Sets the default SMTP server port
		$mail->SMTPAuth = true;							//Sets SMTP authentication. Utilizes the Username and Password variables
		$mail->Username = 'xxxxx';					//Sets SMTP username
		$mail->Password = 'xxxxx';					//Sets SMTP password
		$mail->SMTPSecure = '';							//Sets connection prefix. Options are "", "ssl" or "tls"
		$mail->From = $_POST["email"];					//Sets the From email address for the message
		$mail->FromName = $_POST["name"];				//Sets the From name of the message
		$mail->AddAddress('xxxxx', 'Name');		//Adds a "To" address
		$mail->AddCC($_POST["email"], $_POST["name"]);	//Adds a "Cc" address
		$mail->WordWrap = 50;							//Sets word wrapping on the body of the message to a given number of characters
		$mail->IsHTML(true);			
		$mail->Subject = $_POST["subject"];				//Sets the Subject of the message
		$mail->Body = $_POST["outlet"];					//An HTML or plain text message body	
		$mail->Body = $_POST["message"];				//An HTML or plain text message body
		if($mail->Send())								//Send an Email. Return true on success or false on error
		{
			$error = '<label class="text-success">Thank you for contacting us</label>';
		}
		else
		{
			$error = '<label class="text-danger">There is an Error</label>';
		}
		$outlet = '';
		$name = '';
		$email = '';
		$subject = '';
		$message = '';
