Why is my dreamweaver email form not opening next_url?

Feb 3, 2011 4:56 AM

All my email forms are opening a text page like the one shown here instead of the next url (the email is received correctly) as indicated:


The following form submission was sent.

first_name = Richard

middle_initial =

last_name = Gallatin

email_address =

telephone_number =

questions_comments = Test

submit = Send Email

subject = Contact Page

next_url =


How is this error occurring and how do I correct it?

    We would need to see the live page containing the form so that we can examine the HTML to begin to answer this question.  Can you post a link to it?

    I have the exact same problem.  The page was working perfectly a few weeks ago, and now instead of

    going to the next_url page, it simply gives a page that says the form was submitted.  I did not change

    anything on the page.  It just stopped working correctly.  Like the original poster, I am using Yahoo

    web hosting.  Here is the form code:


    <form onsubmit="return emailcheck(this)" method=post action="">
    <input type="hidden" name="next_url" value="">
    <strong>Please enter your email address to download a free set of six Precious Pollabies coloring pictures:</strong><br />
    <br><input type="text" size="40" name="email">
    <input type="submit" value="Submit!">
    <br />


    Any help?

    Most likely something changed at Yahoo. You would need to contact them for support.

    Just had the same problem.  Something with Yahoo changed.  This is what I had to do to get it to


    <form method=post action="">


    had to add the &confirm along with the next page to display within the form tag


    Hope this helps
