    Default good_url / bad_url -- Not Working

    Here is the code I inserted into the form:

    <input type="hidden" name="good_url" value="" />
    <input type="hidden" name="bad_url" value="" />

    Unfortunately it's just not working for me. It keeps re-directing to the generic default page. I'm at a complete loss.

    I downloaded the current version of formmail today in hopes that replacing the slightly older version would fix it. But nope, that didn't work either. I tried entering a value of just "thanks.html" and another value that displayed the entire URL (see above). Neither helped.

    Does anyone know the PHP re-direct code I need to look for on the "formmail.php" page to verify that it looks "right". Perhaps if someone could show me the correct code, then I could compare that with what I have on my end? I dunno what else to do...

    Thanks ahead of time for any feedback!

    ur form is:


    u have a bunch of javascript on there - i suspected that

    i disabled the js but got the same result.


    ran ur HTML thru and there are lots of errors, including important ones like <head> and <body> problems.

    maybe that's the cause

    otherwise buy support from tectite and i'm sure youll get the problem solved (i think they guarantee too - like a refund if it's a bug in FormMail - which it won't be)

    You, sir, are a life-saver.

    I went to that validation page and went line-by-line through any code it didn't like.

    The two lines I fixed (per the validation page's instruction) that made everything work was the good_url and bad_url lines.

    This is what they look like now (it said to remove the "/" at the end of the line & to remove the space in between "name" and "value" attributes"):

    <input type="hidden" name="good_url"value="">
    <input type="hidden" name="bad_url"value="">

    So thanks again! I was ready to cry myself to sleep.

    (I'm going to remember that validation page. Dreamweaver's code checker thought everything was hunky-dorie!)
