Help with Contact Form

Thread began 8/21/2010 8:08 am by madelectrical386948 | Last modified 8/27/2010 1:51 pm by madelectrical386948 | 1823 views | 12 replies |


Help with Contact Form

I need some help with my contact form. I created the page with WA form and applied the Universal E-mail.

I will send the contact.php attached.

I can receive the email, but the form information is not present. Just the items that were added from the Universal E-mail.

What I'm I missing within my form that will put the info into the email?

I started a thread within the U E-mail, but I guess that is in the wrong place. If you could delete that Jason, that would be helpful.

I still cannot get the form info in the email.

I just have a name,email and comments on the form.

It doesn't seem to have a post command within the code.

This is very basic, but I must be doing something wrong. New to PHP and code, so I am not sure what I am missing.

Please let me know.

It seems I should have some type of post for each form field and it doesn't on the php page.
Should I edit the waue_contact_us_1.php file and add the post info for the form?

I tried one form field (the name) and this is the message I got from the internet.

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '<' in /home/content/c/r/a/cragdire/html/webassist/email/waue_contact_us_1.php on line 39

Note: I have removed the post line from the file below. This is what I added.
<?php echo((isset($_POST["Contact_me_group_Name"]))?$_POST["Contact_me_group_Name"]:"") ?>

Here is the code for the waue_contact_us_1.php.

$MailAttachments = "";
$MailBCC = "";
$MailCC = "";
$MailTo = "";
$MailBodyFormat = "";
$MailBody = "";
$MailImportance = "";
$MailFrom = "";
$MailSubject = "Test";

//Global Variables

$WA_MailObject = WAUE_Definition("","25","","","","");

if ($RecipientEmail) {
$WA_MailObject = WAUE_AddRecipient($WA_MailObject,$RecipientEmail);
else {
//To Entries

//Additional Headers

//Attachment Entries

//BCC Entries

//CC Entries

//Body Format
$WA_MailObject = WAUE_BodyFormat($WA_MailObject,0);

//Set Importance
$WA_MailObject = WAUE_SetImportance($WA_MailObject,"3");

//Start Mail Body
//End Mail Body

$WA_MailObject = WAUE_SendMail($WA_MailObject,$MailAttachments,$MailBCC,$MailCC,$MailTo,$MailImportance,$MailFrom,$MailSubject,$MailBody,"waue_contact_us_1");

if (isset($_SESSION["waue_contact_us_1_Status"])) {
$MailLogBindings = new WAUE_Log_Bindings();
//Start Log Bindings
//Success Or Failure
$MailLogBindings->SuccessOrFailure->ToDo = "none";
$MailLogBindings->SuccessOrFailure->Connection = "";
$MailLogBindings->SuccessOrFailure->TableName = "";
$MailLogBindings->SuccessOrFailure->EmailColumn = "";
$MailLogBindings->SuccessOrFailure->ColumnList = array();
$MailLogBindings->SuccessOrFailure->TypeList = array();
$MailLogBindings->SuccessOrFailure->ValueList = array();
//Success Only
$MailLogBindings->Success->ToDo = "none";
$MailLogBindings->Success->Connection = "";
$MailLogBindings->Success->TableName = "";
$MailLogBindings->Success->EmailColumn = "";
$MailLogBindings->Success->ColumnList = array();
$MailLogBindings->Success->TypeList = array();
$MailLogBindings->Success->ValueList = array();
//Failure Only
$MailLogBindings->Failure->ToDo = "none";
$MailLogBindings->Failure->Connection = "";
$MailLogBindings->Failure->TableName = "";
$MailLogBindings->Failure->EmailColumn = "";
$MailLogBindings->Failure->ColumnList = array();
$MailLogBindings->Failure->TypeList = array();
$MailLogBindings->Failure->ValueList = array();
//End Log Bindings
$MailLogBindings->SuccessOrFailure->MailRef = "waue_contact_us_1";
$MailLogBindings->Success->MailRef = "waue_contact_us_1";
$MailLogBindings->Failure->MailRef = "waue_contact_us_1";
$MailLogBindings->processLog(($_SESSION["waue_contact_us_1_Status"] == "Failure"));
$WA_MailObject = null;

In the server behaviors list, double click the Universal Email server behavior.

On the first page, check the option to "Create a File For my Email Message" and select one of the templates from the list.

Your right Jason,

I can't believe I missed that. I believe I picked the default and nothing came up.

It works now and thanks.

Hi Jason,

Need more help. I have spent hours on this and I am glad I still have my sense of humor.

I don't know how many times I have made this contact page.

I figured out how to make the individual elements for my contact page. I am having problems with the radio groups.

I would like to ask the customer the Best time to reach them. When you create the element, it allows you to pick the radio group and I selected wide. I have selected validation, but what must I select for the empty value and invalid value? When I try to process the form and send it to my email, it can never validate.

What I'm I doing wrong?

Below is the radio button group

<div class="fullColumnGroup">
<label for="fieldset_group_Best_time_to_reach_you" class="sublabel" >Best time to reach you?:<span class="requiredIndicator">&nbsp;*</span></label>
<div class="errorGroup">
<div class="fieldPair">
<div class="fieldGroup"> <span id="fieldset_group_Best_time_to_reach_you_Spry"> <span class="radioFieldGroup_Wide" onblur="hideServerError('fieldset_group_Best_time_to_reach_you_ServerError');"> <span class="radioGroup_Wide"> </span> </span> <span class="radioRequiredMsg">Please select time.</span>
<input type="radio" name="radio" id="timeMorning" value="timeMorning" />
<label for="timeMorning">Morning</label>
<input type="radio" name="radio" id="timeAfternoon" value="timeAfternoon" />
<label for="timeAfternoon">Afternoon
<input type="radio" name="radio" id="timeEvening" value="timeEvening" />
if (ValidatedField('contact','contact')) {
if ((strpos((",".ValidatedField("contact","contact").","), "," . "4" . ",") !== false || "4" == "")) {
if (!((strpos((",".ValidatedField("contact","contact").","), "," . "4" . ",") !== false || "4" == ""))) {
<span class="serverInvalidState" id="fieldset_group_Best_time_to_reach_you_ServerError">Please select time.</span>
<?php //WAFV_Conditional contact.php contact(4:4)

Not sure if this is a bug, but I believe since I have started over and over again, I have the item which is causing the page to call it self again without going to the thank you page.

It's a simple text field that I want to use for the city. How do I know this?

I started with the simple contact that comes with WA and it sends. So that is a validated name,email, comments and the security. It works perfectly.

I added one element at a time to see what was really giving me the problem. I changed the name to 2 fields (first name) and (last name) and a phone field. WORKS.

I added a text field multiple ways without any validation. Does not work. Does not send.

So why is a simple text field causing my problems? Any help would be great.

Also, when I try to validate it, just like the name, it still faults out.

When can I get some help Jason,

I have done this so many time and different ways to see why it doesn't work.

I have created the field sets as first name,last name,city,email and phone number. All under one set. Still does not process.

I can go back to the original set that still works and it over right it. It works. So I know I can go between different sets and they should work.

I have deleted all the files that are linked at the site and put everything back in.

Please let me know what I need to send to figure this out. It is driving me crazy.
