    Default Page Redirects, does not send email


    I have the Formmail working, if I do not redirect to any page and use the default page that Formmail serves up.

    I need to be able to re-direct back to the originating page, and display a link after submission. I have this piece working, but then the email does not come through.

    Here are some of the lines of the code:

    Invoking Formmail upon submit:

    <!-- STEP 1: Put the full URL to formmail.php on your website in the 'action' value. -->
    <form method="post" action="" name="SampleForm">
    <input type="hidden" name="env_report" value="REMOTE_HOST,REMOTE_ADDR,HTTP_USER_AGENT,AUTH_TYPE,REMOTE_USER" />

    Redirection within the <form> </form> tags:

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


    If I take out the good_url line, it works and sends the email, but doesn't re-direct. Add it in, and it redirects and displays my link, but doesn't send the email.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    It sounds like you might have invalid HTML code.

    Cool Re: Page Redirects, does not send email

    I was in the middle of updating this post, when I got some support calls and forgot about it.

    I got it to work. My guess is that the form wrapped inside of another form tag was the issue, because that is when it would stop working.

    I changed it to use a php evaluator instead, in the <head>/<head> tags like this:
    <?PHP $sent=$_GET['sent']; ?>

    and changed my good url to be:
    <input type="hidden" name="good_url" value="http://MYURL/cdp_zix.php?sent=sent" />

    And then uses this code, under the submit button, when the good_url comes back:
    if (isset($sent)) {echo "<p><h3>Thank you for your interested in Zixmail. <br>Click the link to download your 30 day trial of Zixmail: <a href=http://Downloadlink>Zixmail Trial</a></h3></p>";}

    and it is all working now.
