View Full Version : help with minor addition to existing form...

02-23-2009, 10:05 PM
My client has asked to add a comments box to her existing form which I've done but I have no idea about ASP.


Where amongst all this code do I add the necessary info for the comments box?

I'm still trying to get to grips with PHP but this seems a lot more complicated... any help much appreciated as it's needed asap and I don't really have time to learn ASP.

What kind of message box are talking about?

Any comment can be added on the body of the page as for asp the code you have is for emailing the info you have from the form.

Where do you want the comment box? on the email or on the actual page?

Needs clarification..perhaps that is why nobody answered your post before

It's ok, I simply had to add the comments box to the html as the ASP code had already been written because an alternative language version of the website already had a comments box within the form.

Thanks anyway!
