Troubles e-mailing a form / formmail form mail
« on: Jan 8th, 2003, 7:49pm »
Quote Quote Modify Modify

Hi:
 
I have tested my new Web site created using EasyWebEditor and accesing to it via Netscape 7.0 and I found one little error  I can´t  solve.
 
I have created a page for user's registrations, so I've created a form's marker with the porperty "send data by E-mail to eeeee@rrrr.com" and then I've inserted some text forms and at the end I've inserted three butons "Send", "Cancel" and "Back".
 
Acces to this site via Netscape 7.0  and fill the fields in the form is a very easy task, but when I've pressed a buton "send" inmmediately was launched a Netscape mail-composer ( I don´t know Why!) and the process is broken at this point. If I fill the subject field in the mail composer and press on buton "Send" of composer the blank message will be sent to the specific e-mail addresss. If I close the e-mail composer windows an tray again to press "Send" buton on the form  nothing in happend.
 
Results: The form don´t work properly and the data  are not sent to the e-mail address written in the property field of form´s maker.
 
I've checked all the properties of my browser but it seems without erros. May be  somebody was experienced the same  troubles?
If anyone wants to check this site the  URL is:
www.titaniumoffice.com
 
I will be appreciate any comments ,
Thanks
jguas

Just done a test with NS4.7 and it seems working (you should receive an email ).
Maybe at the end of the form use "Insert >HTML >Within text" and insert this text
 
</FORM>
 
This is a missing tag, maybe NS7 wants this.

Well I' have the same problem and I just emailed Luke.  Wished I'd seen the post first.  I have had the feature working in the past so I think it is a browser problem.  I'm using both NS 4.77 and 6 but gave up on 7 as it has more bugs than a Raid commercial.
I'll wait for some word on this and just keep "fooling around" 'till I find out what fixes it.
Does anybody know how to send a form to more that one email address?  ----After I find out how to send it to one address.

Hi! I've just received an aeh sample file from Tom and I've made some modifs.
With these modifs it seems working.
Unfortunately I haven't tested with NS7 as for my own test reasons I want to keep only the old NS 4.7 on this PC.
Try downloading the sample on
http://www.visualvision.com/download/formtest_a.aeh
 
PLEASE NOTICE: change the email address in the form start marker or it will email to Tom!!!

Please notice also that, Since it is a direct "to email" form, it might be possible that you didn't have the email portion of Netscape setup correctly (they were only using the browser portion).
 
As a result, Netscape wouldn't know how to send the email and would probably give you an error.  
 
If this is the case, you might be better off having the form submit to a CGI script that sends out the email, like formmail (it is usually installed on the server by default).
 
First of all, ask to your Web host for a "formmail.cgi".
It will give you an address like:
http://thehost.com/cgi-sys/formmail.cgi
or
http://thehost.com/cgi-bin/formmail.pl
or so...
 
then
a) edit the form start marker; choose the "POST" tab instead the email tab, and write
http://thehost.com/cgi-bin/formmail.cgi
in the box (the URL above, the one supplied by your host).
 
b) inside the page, insert 3 hidden form elements (with Insert menu):
1)
name="redirect"
value="http://www.yoursite.com/blabla_0000xx.htm"
(where blabla_0000xx.htm is a "thank you" page)
2)
name="recipient"
value="youremail@yoursite.com"
3)
name="subject"
value="Hi! I am the email sent from form 1!"
 
This should work.

I have had the same problem using IE 6. It pops up a mail window and does not include the info from the from. I am going to see if I can get a fommail option like has been mentioned.

You might also consider creating a form using the web form automation tools on the web. I am currently using createaform.com but there are a number of sites that will do pretty much the same functionality.  
 
Keeps from have to drudge through the coding of a form.

I tried to e-mail a form using two browsers.
 
With an Internet Explorer browser, I receive an empty e-mail with a nice little ATT file attached containing the data I just filled in on-line.  
 
But with Netscape 7, I only receive an e-mail without anything at all !
 
Any solution ?

This is the code for a page.
 
With Easy Web Editor / 1SITE all is visual.
You just need to:
 
1) insert a form start marker; it must be "POST" and must point to the script
/cgi-bin/formmail/formmail.cgi
(there is a box, fill it with the string above)
 
2) insert an Hidden form element with
identifier => recipient
value => youremail@yourisp.com
(Insert >Forms >Form element - then the Hidden tab)
 
3) insert some form elements (no matter what and how many), in order to fulfill your needs....
 
4) insert at least one form button in order to "close" the form
 
That's all.
Any form must start with a "form start marker" as above and must end with (at least) one form button. The Hidden identifier tells to the server where to send the form data once the user presses the form button.

We just started using EWE in our company to do a website complete with an online emailable order form. The order form contains a link to a PDF file. The form is actually secured and processed by FormBreeze with field validation. I copied all of the HTML code from the form page itself (by opening the form in our browser and doing a right click & copy) and pasted the code into the FormBreeze validation box, as instructed.  They returned the new code and instructed us to paste the new code into source code for the form. However, I cannot find WHERE to paste the new code! Every attempt results with TWO versions of the form appearing on one page when viewed in the browser. The top portion is a mess with broken links, etc. and the bottom half of the page is a perfect form. I tried simply pasting the code for "input" in the submit button on the form, and while the form displays properly and the PDF link works properly, it allows the user to send a completely blank form - which defeats the form validation code from FormBreeze. The intent is that the user will complete the form and click submit. The information is then emailed to us in an encrypted format to our email address. If a user fails to provide required information, the form is to give a message, such as "Contact Name Required." The form is NOT supposed to transmit without all of the required information.
 
Apparently, I am not supposed to paste ALL of the code that FormBreeze returned, but exactly WHAT portion(s) of the code am I supposed to paste and WHERE is it supposed to be pasted??

We use FormBreeze for validation and to return the data submitted by visitors on our online order form. I had to submit the (EWE) source code for our order form page, and FormBreeze returned the new code. Their instructions were to delete all of the EWE source code and replace it with the source code they supplied. They said NOT to alter any of the code, or the validation may not work or the form processing may not work properly. Since I cannot edit the EWE source code, I have no idea WHERE to paste this code! The code is as follows in the next post:
 
 
 
WHAT do I DO with this and HOW do I do it?

We received it by email.
Basically, I see "FormBreeze" returns you the FULL PAGE, by adding some thing.
 
This is handy for people using "HTML" editors.
 
Within EasyWebEditor, you should NOT copy the same page (you already have it within EasyWebEditor), but just the added things.
 
There are just 2 steps:
 
1)With Insert >HTML >At page start
you must paste ONLY the part between
 
<!-- FORMBREEZE-BEGIN   - Do not modify these lines directly.  -->
.....
......
<!-- FORMBREEZE-END -->
 
(you must NOT copy the rest of the page as it is only duplicate information on what already is within easywebeditor - just copy and paste the part between this BEGIN and END).
 
 
2)Within the body of the page, you must then delete the "form start marker", then in place of it (at the former position) use "Insert >HTML >Within" text then copy this code that I extracted from your email:
 
<form method="post" _base_target="_top"  action="http://www.formbreeze.com/cgi-bin/process.cgi"  onsubmit=" return formbreeze_sub()"  name="form1" ><input type="hidden" name="formbreeze" value="14111-1">  
 
 
 
I see no other instances of the word "formbreeze" within the form, so this should be all.
 
I can not guarantee this is correct but it should be. I am skeptic about onsubmit=" return formbreeze_sub()", I would see better onsubmit="return formbreeze_sub()" (without initial space) or onsubmit="javascript:formbreeze_sub()" but I am not a Javascript expert so maybe it is already correct (and my versions are errors !!).
 
Maybe you can ask more details to FormBreeze guys and point them to this forum (we are doing free advertising for them, so I think they can come here for supporting their own product eh eh ).
