I have been here at this board now for about 5 hours reading every post to fix this formmail that isnt working for me :-(
I am getting no required field errors and also a session destroy error
I have dont the target thing and the alert thing I get the alerts that tell me no fields were correct when I know I typed them in there correctly
If you wouldnt mind taking a look at my file I would greatly appreciate it I have tried all the replies you have given others to no avail :-(
The html of the form itself can be found here: http://www.djmcreations.net/acesup/main/register.htm
and the php I will attach here (ok I cant attach the file as it states its to large it is on the web here: http://www.djmcreations.net/acesup/main/formmail.php if you could view the source code or if you have an email addy that you wouldn't mind I send it to please let me know am desperate for help
Thank you for any time you can spare on instruction you will never know how much it is appreciated

Yes, please email your formmail.php to supportstaff AT tectite DOT com.
I'll have a look at your form now...

The form looks fine, except that the URL to formmail.php is wrong:
Also, your "required" spec isn't what you want (but that's minor for the moment).
I ran formmail.php from the URL you posted, and it reports a Parse error.
This indicates that you've corrupted formmail.php while editing it or when it was uploaded to the server.

I just sent you my formmail.php file to the specified email address
that parse error is a new one that just started Ugh
I must have most likely screwed it up whilst trying to fix it
what do I do to make it right again ?

Yes, there was a stray '*' in the file which broke the PHP parser (the language was no longer valid).
I've repaired the file and emailed it back to you.

Once you've uploaded the fixed formmail.php, I recommend you test the alerts like this:
You should then get an email alert message. That's the best place to start before continuing.

I did fixed the link in the Html and uploaded the fixed formmail.php that you sent
when I click on the link in your last post it says no DEf alert has been set
But I was getting them earlier do I need to re state the def alert ??
02-Dec-2004, 10:28 PM
Yes, I've just seen that too.
The formmail.php I just sent you was correct - it had DEF_ALERT set to your email address.
I've also just tested it locally and it worked fine (you may get an alert message from that test).
So, something got broken between you receiving the email from me and you uploading it to your server.
What software are you using to upload? Did you open the formmail.php file in a program before uploading it? If so, did you write the file back to disk before uploading?

I didn't change anything or even open the file you sent I saved it to the directory where the old one was and over wrote it and uploaded it with cuteftp pro 6.0 should I try resaving and reuploading via the web ??
Here is what I got from most likely your formmail alert that you sent to me
This is a test message. PHP version is 4.3.8
