    Form Redirect

    rchsmike1

      Im creating a simple form.  Is there a way to redirect the viewer to another page after they hit the submit button?  If not, is there at least a way to prevent them from hitting the submit button a second time?

          After the visitor clicks the submit button, there are redirected to the page that is specified in the action attribute.

            Thank you, that works, but now I have another problem...before, my action attribute was: mailto:emailaddress , so how do I accss the information?  I want the form to allow people to sign up onto my e-mail list.

              Your form's action attribute should point to a page with a server side script that processes the form; sends it to an email address, inserts into database, etc. Yould never use a mailto with a form and it is completely unreliable.

                Who is your webhosting company... 95% of them have simple remade scripts that will send your mail using PHPmail.  Who do you use - GoDaddy? Someone else? Once we know who you use finding out where to point your form to should be easy.

                  Let me try that again
