          Find out what server side scripting you have available through your hosting company first. Without that bit of info, the best solutions given by the forum may fail utterly.

           

          You might even have a form to email processing script available through your hosting company with all the instructions on how to get it working.

            2 questions, how do I find out my sever side, and is godaddy a server side scripter? Actually 3, This is a stupid question, what is server side scripting

              GoDaddy is your hosting company, who runs the server your website is hosted on.

               

              Server side scripting would be scripting languages like PHP, ASP or ColdFusion. They are run by the server to "do something" on your site and then feed the result to the viewer (like pull info from a database or process form fields and send an email). These scripts never make it to the viewer's browser, you can't see them by viewing the source of a web page because they run on the server and the server only gives the results of the processed script to the viewer on the "client side". If the server doesn't have PHP available for instance, a PHP solution would fail if you attempted to use it.

               

              You can check your admin area to see what you have available, likey PHP will work and one of two GD form to mail scripts will be available for use...

                  There is no magic button. In order for your form to send an email reliably you need a server side script. Please read the godaddy support page that Jon linked to for instructions on using their form mailer. If you think that implementing this is something you are not capable of, then you'll need to hire someone to do it for you.

                    The missing code to display the button is:

                     

                    <input type="submit" />

                     

                    As you have heard, a script is also required to receive the user's input from the HTML form. The name of that script file wiould be inserted between the quotes after  action=  in this line

                     

                    <form id="form1" name="form1" method="post" action="">
