Hi All Again,
Can anyone advise on a simple tutorial or assistance for creating a simple form to send a message to my e mail address nothing fancy just so someone can send a message to my e mail address or can you advise on a better way to do this ? ;-)

Thanks, Nick C

Hi Guys,
Thanks for replies, sorry to sound stupid but does the form have to be created in a file with a PHP extension or can the form be on an HTML page but I copy the code in the tutorial

http://www.dreamweaverclub.com/dreamweaver-php-form.php

to file and place in root of my site ?
I am new to this so sorry if the answers obvious, could you explain a little further pleez ?

Cheers, Nick C :-)

Hi

I just made a form using cs3 and i just followed the instructions in this youtube video ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rdsz9Ie6h7I ) and my form works fine. He basically walks you through making a php form script as well as putting in a thank you page once some one clicks submit on your form. Once you have this php script made you just point your dreamweaver form to it and upload both to your server. hope it helps.

Just one thing if you do follow the youtube video there is a mistake he made in the $body part he tells you the string should look like this
Name: $name <br>
but the actual string should be this:
Name: $nameField <br>
That would apply for all the information you want to gather ( $nameField , $emailField etc. )
