UE 4: Form Info

Hi folks,

Quick question, I'm currently building a site that requires the use of your form software but unfortunately none of the data being entered in the 'Name' 'Email' and 'Message' sections are being submitted. The email is being sent, it's just bank content. The Contact section can be found here: contact.php

Any ideas of what I'm doing wrong (all relative files have been uploaded ect).

Thanks in advance,
gar.

your forms method is set to get:
<form name="contact" action="" method="get">


it should be set to post:
<form name="contact" action="" method="post">

Yes, I realise that, I changed in an attempt to get it working. I've changed it back to 'Post' now but still have no luck. The email is sending the required address but any content that was inputting into the name, email and message tables is omitted.

I guess one issue is this, the WebAssist folder is created in a folder one level above my root (which is not allowed by my Hosting provider) so I have to manually redirect the files to point to a folder within my root. Would this be causing issues?

One thing, in the mailformatting.php file it references connection and database folders, I can't see these anywhere within the WebAssist folder, should these be present and correct somewhere?

Thanks for the initial response and any further help.

Here's a screen shot of the folder order, for clarification:

it sounds like there is an issue with your site settings.

If you set your site correctly, it will not put the webassist folder in a sub directory, your site should be set so that the httpdocs folder is the root of the site in dreamweaver.

I'll look into it, but the format in the remote server is mandatory, it's how the hosting provider displays files.

Anyway, thank you for your responses.

understood, but if you set dreamweaver to upload to the httpdocs folder, you will not have the issue.

I understand what you're saying but the WebAssist folder always seems to manually create itself outside of my defined root folder. Can I change this somehow in WebAssist?

It will get created at the root of your Dreamweaver site. it is not possible to change this.

Issue resolved, I just set the site root to my wwwroot instead of the site name, this resolved any conflicts with re-addressing WebAssist folder paths. Thanks for your time and help, much appreciated.

Regards,
Gareth
