Contact form as plug-in always redirects to index page

Contact form as plug-in always redirects to index page

I'm playing around with Framework builder and trying to build a generic contact form as plug-in for inclusion on a php page.

I've created a blank page and added a form to it and then used Universal Email for sending the form contents in an email. I've then referred to this file as my plug-in and added it to a page that is based on a dreamweaver template page.

The contact form displays correctly as a plug-in, but the email doesn't get sent and instead of re-directing to my 'enquiry sent' page it tries to redirect to the index page (which doesn't exist).

If I load the plug-in page itself the redirect works properly? I've attached my files - any help with this is appreciated.

on the contact-plugin.php page, set the forms action to post to the contact-us.php page, alternitvely, you can use the $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] variable:

php:
<form  action="<?php echo($_SERVER['PHP_SELF']); ?>" method="post" enctype="application/x-www-form-urlencoded" name="frmContactUs" id="frmContactUs">

Similar Problem

I'm having a similar problem as above. I have a sign-up form as a plug-in placed on the index page. It can be viewed here: neprugby.us It works perfectly except for the redirect to my thankyou.php page. The email is sent as expected, but it always redirects to the following directory (resulting in a 404 error): thankyou.php

The sign-up form plug-in code is attached. I've tried redirecting to both 'thankyou.php' as well as '../thankyou.php' Any help is much appreciated.

here is an updated copy of the webassist/framework/library.php file that should correct the problem.

Thanks Jason. That worked perfectly. Is that library.php file included in the latest install of Design Extender? Just curious because I think I created the sign-up form before I upgraded to Design Extender. I want to know if I'll need to include that file manually from now on or not.

Also, is there any particular reason why the emails being sent through my form show the time as MST? It should be EST. The date function looks correct in the email file that gets sent out. Could this be something pertaining to the hosting provider?

I believe that update is included in design Extender.


the timezone is set by the host in the php.ini file, you can add the following code at line to override the host setting and change it to easter time:

php:
<?php 

date_default_timezone_set
('US/Eastern'); 
?>
