I have made a “join us” page for our site, but
was unhappy with what I finished with. We want people to send us
their information so that they can be updated on special offers.
But, when the person fills out the form and then clicks on send,
he/she is then warned about sending their e-mail addresses. If they
"ok" that, they are then warned about a virus possibilities and do
they still want to send it. If it was me, I would say no. I want to
make this so that the information that the person filled out is
sent straight to me. On all other sites that I’ve joined
there is no warning or anything else. What do I need to do to fix
this so that the person filling out the form does not have to
answer everything at the end? This is the address to the site:
One last thing, I am new at making full internet sites with
DreamWeaver. In designing and making them, no problem, but when it
comes down to the codes and what .asp addresses need to be where, I
am brand new. So please try and help me using "english".
the problem is that you are using a mailto in the form
action. It is best to do these types of forms using some type of
server side scripting such as ASP, PHP, JSP etc. to submit the info
to a database behind the scenes.
By having your form action as a mailto, you are relying on
the fact that a person has an email client on their current
computer which is not always the case.
Thank You for your reply. I was told that, but have no idea
what that means or what I need to do. Can you help me with that? If
you would like I can send you the information and you can tell me
what actually needs to be done.
