Postby juansoul » Tue Oct 08, 2002 7:08 pm

I need help with this: a person fills out a form, this information is then displayed on a page so people can check the info they have submitted(I can do everything up to this point) now from from this page a submit button will send the submited info to an e mail.

I need help with the last part please help me

You're obviously using the form data to display the variables on the second page to the user. At the same time user hidden form variables to hide them in the HTML, and the submit button will submit those!

This is how it works:
Page 1 - Contains a normal form to capture data, action is page 2
Page 2 - Displays data for checking purposes. It also reproduces the form but uses hidden elements
eg <input type=hidden name='test' value='<?=$_POST['test']?>'>
This form action will be set to Page 3
Page 3 - Captures all the form data, compiles it into an email and sends it, and also displays a success message to the user!

Easy :D

Send mail page:

<form action=send.php>
<input type=... name=message></form>

Send.php:

mail($to,$subject,$body,$from);
include("next.php");
