New Fields do not show on email

Im hoping someone can help. Im using the formatted contact form and have inserted a new form field (phone number). The code in the manual does not work (using Dreamweaver CS5) and the field is not showing on my email. All other verified fields work ok and layout finer but i need this one extra field .

Can you send zip up and attach the contactus.php file that you are using with the added form field?

You are using phone-number instead of phone_number. You want to make sure to change from using a hyphen to using an underscrore.

the phone number form element is missing the value attribute.

change:

php:
<input name="Phone_Number" type="text" class="inputValue" id="Phone_Number" />




to:

php:
<input name="Phone_Number" type="text" class="inputValue" id="Phone_Number" value"" />
