Home Page Menu & Contact Form

The background images for the menu on the Home page are not showing up. It looks fine in Dreamweaver but not on the web.

My contact form looks like it works (I get the Thank You page) but I never get the email.

Can some take a look?

Thanks.

in the menu.css, the paths ffor the background images use file system paths


ul#cssmw_home {
background-color: #1c1c1c;
background-image: url("file:///C|/Documents and Settings/Administrator/My Documents/Pyxels Design Studio/BodyPaintingByTiffany/CSSMenuWriter/cssmw_home_images/overlay_both.png");
background-repeat: repeat-x;
cursor: default;
height: 53px;
list-style-type: none;
margin: 0 0 0 0;
padding: 0 0 0 0;
}


the image path should be relative:
background-image: url("../cssmw_home_images/overlay_both.png");



For the contact form, make sure you have the correct SMTP server specified. make sure the From address is an address from your domein., Also, do not set the from display name.

If these things are set correctly, contact the host to have them look into the smtp server error logs to determine why the mail is not being relayed.

Actually the Contact Form still doesn't work. I'm using the CMS option but in the database table, there is no email options in the WA_SETTINGS table.

My wa_globals.php file is the following:

<?php
//need to run installation wizard
if(!file_exists('../Connections/installed.txt') && (!file_exists('Connections/installed.txt'))) {
if(file_exists('../install/index.php')) {
header('Location: ../install/index.php');
} else {
header('Location: install/index.php');
}
exit();
}
?>
<?php
function replaceTokens($encodedVal,$Arr) {
$tokens = preg_match("/\\[([^\\]]*)\\]/",$encodedVal,$subMatch);
$retVal = $encodedVal;
if (sizeof($subMatch)>0) {
$ArrIndex = $subMatch[1];
$ArrPos = explode(":",$ArrIndex);
if (isset($Arr[$ArrPos[0]])) {
for ($x=0; $x<sizeof($Arr[$ArrPos[0]]); $x++) {
if ($Arr[$ArrPos[0]][$x][0] == $ArrPos[1]) {
$retVal = str_replace($subMatch[0],$Arr[$ArrPos[0]][$x][1],$retVal);
}
}
}
}
return $retVal;
}
?>
<?php
$thisDir = realpath(dirname(__FILE__));
if(strpos($thisDir,"/") !== false) {
$thisDir = substr($thisDir,0,strrpos($thisDir,"/"));
} else {
$thisDir = substr($thisDir,0,strrpos($thisDir,"\\"));
}
require_once($thisDir."/Connections/PowerCMSConnection.php");

mysql_select_db($database_PowerStoreConnection, $PowerStoreConnection);
$query_WAGlobals = "SELECT * FROM wa_settings";
$WAGlobals = mysql_query($query_WAGlobals, $PowerStoreConnection);
$row_WAGlobals = mysql_fetch_assoc($WAGlobals);

$tabs = array();
while ($row_WAGlobals) {
if ($row_WAGlobals['grp'] != "None") {
if (!isset($tabs[$row_WAGlobals['grp']])) {
$tabs[$row_WAGlobals['grp']] = array();
}
$tabs[$row_WAGlobals['grp']][] = array($row_WAGlobals['name'],$row_WAGlobals['value'],$row_WAGlobals['type'],$row_WAGlobals['options'],$row_WAGlobals['variable']);
}
$row_WAGlobals = mysql_fetch_assoc($WAGlobals);
}


foreach ($tabs as $key => $value) {
for ($x=0; $x<sizeof($value); $x++) {
eval("\$WAGLOBAL_".$value[$x][4]."='".addslashes(replaceTokens($value[$x][1],$tabs))."';");
}
}

//root url
$WAGLOBAL_Root_URL = ((isset($_SERVER['SERVER_PROTOCOL']) && strpos($_SERVER['SERVER_PROTOCOL'], 'HTTPS') !== false) ? 'https://' : 'http://') . $_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'] . $WAGLOBAL_localRoot;

mysql_free_result($WAGlobals);
?>

you need to apply universal email to the contact page for it to function as a contact page.

Formatting Issue

I got the form to submit properly but I have a formatting issue. Can you look at this form and let me know what the issue is?

There are bullets and the form is displaying after the Side column.

contact.php

Sign in to reply to this post

Jason ByrnesWebAssist

the bullets are being caused by the follwing style in your content.css:

#outerWrapper #contentWrapper ul {
list-style: circle;
margin: 0 0 0 20px; /* Sets the margin properties for an element using shorthand notation (top, right, bottom, left) */
padding: 0 0 0 0; /* Sets the padding properties for an element using shorthand notation (top, right, bottom, left) */
}

remove the list-style: circle; setting.

I don't see an issue with the forms positioning. It showing in the correct position for me.
