Attach file to my contact form

Postby samuvk » Fri Feb 22, 2013 3:18 pm

I have the following PHP form that works perfectly and I want to add the possibility to attach a file and after 3 weeks of research I still not able to find a way to do.

Please any help will be highly appreciated.

Thanks

HTML CODE:

Code:
Code: Select all
<form name="htmlform" method="post" action="MyphpFile.php">
<table width="450px">
</tr>
<tr>
 <td valign="top">
  <label for="first_name"><b>First Name *</b></label>
 </td>
 <td valign="top">
  <input  type="text" name="first_name" maxlength="50" size="30">
 </td>
</tr>
 
<tr>
 <td valign="top"">
  <label for="last_name"><b>Last Name *</b></label>
 </td>
 <td valign="top">
  <input  type="text" name="last_name" maxlength="50" size="30">
 </td>
</tr>
<tr>
 <td valign="top">
  <label for="email"><b>Email *<font size='2'></b></label>
 </td>
 <td valign="top">
  <input  type="text" name="email" maxlength="80" size="30">
 </td>
 
</tr>
<tr>
 <td valign="top">
  <label for="comments"><b>Comments*</b></label>
 </td>
 <td valign="top">
  <textarea  name="comments" maxlength="1000" cols="25" rows="6"></textarea>
 </td>
 
</tr>
<tr>
 <td colspan="4" style="text-align:center">
<br><br>
  <input type="submit" value="Submit">   
 </td>
</tr>
</table>
</form>




And here is the code of my PHP File:
[code]
PHP Code:
<?php
if(isset($_POST['email'])) {

// CHANGE THE TWO LINES BELOW
$email_to = "myemail@gmail.com";

$email_subject = "Reporting and issue in UnlimitedWonders";


function died($error) {
// your error code can go here
echo "We are very sorry, but there were error(s) found with the form you submitted. ";
echo "These errors appear below.<br /><br />";
echo $error."<br /><br />";
echo "Please go back and fix these errors.<br /><br />";
die();
}

// validation expected data exists
if(!isset($_POST['first_name']) ||
!isset($_POST['last_name']) ||
!isset($_POST['email']) ||
!isset($_POST['comments'])) {
died('We are sorry, but there appears to be a problem with the form you submitted.');
}

$first_name = $_POST['first_name']; // required
$last_name = $_POST['last_name']; // required
$email_from = $_POST['email']; // required
$comments = $_POST['comments']; // required

$error_message = "";
$email_exp = '/^[A-Za-z0-9._%-]+@[A-Za-z0-9.-]+\.[A-Za-z]{2,4}$/';
if(!preg_match($email_exp,$email_from)) {
$error_message .= 'The Email Address you entered does not appear to be valid.<br />';
}
$string_exp = "/^[A-Za-z .'-]+$/";
if(!preg_match($string_exp,$first_name)) {
$error_message .= 'The First Name you entered does not appear to be valid.<br />';
}
if(!preg_match($string_exp,$last_name)) {
$error_message .= 'The Last Name you entered does not appear to be valid.<br />';
}
if(strlen($comments) < 2) {
$error_message .= 'The Comments you entered do not appear to be valid.<br />';
}
if(strlen($error_message) > 0) {
died($error_message);
}
$email_message = "Form details below.\n\n";

function clean_string($string) {
$bad = array("content-type","bcc:","to:","cc:","href");
return str_replace($bad,"",$string);
}

$email_message .= "First Name: ".clean_string($first_name)."\n";
$email_message .= "Last Name: ".clean_string($last_name)."\n";
$email_message .= "Email: ".clean_string($email_from)."\n";
$email_message .= "Comments: ".clean_string($comments)."\n";


// create email headers
$headers = 'From: '.$email_from."\r\n".
'Reply-To: '.$email_from."\r\n" .
'X-Mailer: PHP/' . phpversion();
@mail($email_to, $email_subject, $email_message, $headers);
?>

<!-- place your own success html below -->

Thank you

You need to encode your attach files into base64 format and put it on header. See this tutorial http://www.w3bees.com/2013/02/send-mail-with-file-attachment-using-php.html
