View Full Version : Form wont submit !

01-06-2011, 12:57 PM
I am going to have one last stab at rectifying my form problem before starting from scratch again !, everything works fine whilst submitting form etc, recaptcha seems ok etc but for some reason the form isn't being sent !.
I think its something fairly straightforward but I can't see where I've gone wrong !, I have an alternative to try but was wondering if anyone can finally help if not I will try again from scratch.
My website is at nixwebdesign.co.uk if you need to take a look !!!

Thanks for any help provided !

This my mailer.php code

$privatekey = "6Lc1nb8SAAAAAKSJXqJyn-GbqmiHTMs2Odv3Y045";
$resp = recaptcha_check_answer ($privatekey,
if(!$resp->is_valid) {
//these are the form results
$name = $_POST['name'];
$email = $_POST['email'];
$enquiry = $_POST['enquiry'];
$formsub = $_POST['Submit'];


//this creates the body of the mail message
$mailMessage = "The message is: Hi Nik. You have a message from Nix Web Design";
$mailMessage .= "Name:" .$name."\n\n";
$mailMessage .= "E-Mail:" .$email."\n\n";
$mailMessage .= "Enquiry:" .$enquiry."\n\n";
$header = "From: nik@nixwebdesign.co.uk\r\n";
$header .= "Reply-To: nik@nixwebdesign.co.uk\r\n";
$header .= "Return-Path: nik@nixwebdesign.co.uk\r\n";
mail('nik@nixwebdesign.co.uk', 'Website Enquiry', $mailMessage,$header);



This is my html etc in contact.php

<form action="mailer.php" id="contact" method="post">

<input name="name" type="text" size="30" id="name">

<input name="email" type="text" size="30" id="email">

<label>Your Comments</label>
<textarea name="enquiry" cols="5" rows="5" id="enquiry">Please type your enquiry here.</textarea>

just out of curiosity, why do you have mixed closed and unclosed singleton elements? if this is xhtml, unclosed elements will hork up your form.

I know nothing about recaptcha (I use something else).

edbr was just saying about somebody else's mailer form that you probably need mx records to send.
