Form action value does not allow email to be sent?

Thread began 8/13/2009 10:22 am by pnmitchell386210 | Last modified 8/13/2009 1:54 pm by Jason Byrnes | 1664 views | 1 replies |


Form action value does not allow email to be sent?

I have a form that submits its contents to a database via its action value and I would like it to send an email via UE.

I believe that UE is not given a chance to send the email because the form immediately goes to the action of the form when submitted - any thoughts on how to work around this?

The form is here: AskSpecialist.php

The Universal Email behavior needs to be applied to the forms action page.

The best way to configure it is to laver the action blank so that the forms action is to post to itself, then add the Insert Record Behavior and the Universal Email behavior to the same page with the form on it. You can then set Universal Email to redirect to the thank you page after the email is sent out.
