formmail results layout

Jun 11, 2013 2:13 PM

I want to have a visitor fill out a web form and then the results emailed to me. I have found plenty of scripts that will do this but when I look at the email the results line up like this:

 

     First Name: Jim

     Last Name: Smith

     Phone: (555) 555-4738

     Email: someone@gmail.com

     Address:

     City:

     State:

     Zip:

     Voltage: 120

     Height: 25'

     Current Type: HID

     Current Wattage: 400

     After Type: LED

     After Wattage: 100

     Hours: 12

     Notes: none

     Voltage: 120

     Height: 15'

     Current Type: HID

     Current Wattage: 250

     After Type: LED

     After Wattage: 85

     Hours: 12

     Notes: none

     Voltage: 120

     Height: 25'

     Current Type: HID

     Current Wattage:175

     After Type: LED

     After Wattage: 62

     Hours: 12

     Notes: none

 

 

This is very confusing since there are multiple fields that are the same. The emailed form results should appear in the same layout as the webform like this:

 

    

   Voltage: 120         Height:  25'        Current Type: HID         Current Wattage: 400         After Type: LED         After Wattage: 100       Hours: 12         Notes: none

   Voltage: 120         Height:  15'        Current Type: HID         Current Wattage: 250         After Type: LED         After Wattage: 85         Hours: 12         Notes: none

   Voltage: 120         Height:  10'        Current Type: HID         Current Wattage: 175         After Type: LED         After Wattage: 62         Hours: 12         Notes: none

   Voltage: 120         Height:  25'        Current Type: HID         Current Wattage: 400         After Type: LED         After Wattage: 100       Hours: 12         Notes: none

 

Can anyone help me solve this problem? I'm going to use it with my 3dCart website which is .asp.

    I'm not sure of the file structure of your system so you may have to go to the manufacturer for that information.  But the HTML for the email should be contained in a file somewhere and you just change the line breaks or paragraphs to an HTML table with the values in it.  There is also the possibility the version you are looking at is text-only and you may need to enable the HTML version within the application and maybe they have an editor within the program to allow you to do this.

    That's not the form processing code though.  The form processing code is buried somewhere in the script.  You will first have to look at aspsendmail.asp that they gave you.  I would highly recommend that you reach out to them as someone from the script vendor will be able to point you to the right file faster than people on the forums who would have to go file-by-file with you to find the answer.

    They have an area to edit templates like I thought.  This is from their KB:

     

    https://support.3dcart.com/Knowledgebase/Article/View/6/1/how-can-i-mo dify-the-emails-that-my-store-sends-to-my-clients

     

    They also talk about a more advanced integration with Mandrill which probably gives more flexibility although a lot more programming is involved:

     

    https://support.3dcart.com/Knowledgebase/Article/View/514/1/how-do-i-i ntegrate-my-store-with-mandrill

     

    I can't imagine they lock you into their own templates with these features.  It has to be buried somewhere within that application.  If not, I would evaluate them and see if they are really what you want or whether there are other competitors worth trying.
