Topic Summary
Posted by: canlor Posted on: Jun 17th, 2006, 9:54pm
I keep getting the following message when I try to submit the form I created on my site:
"Error: Bad Header Fields
The header fields, which include recipient, email, realname and subject were filled in with invalid values. You may not include any newline characters in these parameters. More information on filling in these form fields and variables can be found in the README file
FormMail V1.92 © 1995 - 2002 Matt Wright
A Free Product of Matt's Script Archive, Inc."
I have filled out the form following the instructions but the same message occurs. This has been going on for over a month now and I'm ready to rip out what little hair I have.
I'm using 1Site, and the start form with POST method in the form; I've tried using the HTML instead of the fill in the blanks setup and the same thing occurs.
I've follwed the instructions for formmail that my ISP sent me:
<form action="/sys-cgi/formmail" method=post>
<input type=hidden name="recipient" value="">
<input type=text name="message">
<input type=submito value="send email">
What am I doing wrong??????

You should ask to your ISP. Or maybe post the precise URL of the page here......
Normally if you insert all needed value (included hidden form elements) a form mail works.
Take a look on the other topic on this forum about "form mail" or "formmail" or "form to mail" there is a detailed example.......

I've done all the suggestions from all the formmail searches and still I get errors.
I've looked at sites that were suppossed to have the formmail set up by now and it seems they've gone to another company to handle forms. Is this normal? All I wanted to do was have a registration form sent back to me.
Here is what "view source" shows of the code:
The link is
> Pens
>Register your Pen
Can anyone help?

if the message is:
Error: Bad Header Fields
The header fields, which include recipient, email, realname and subject were filled in with invalid values.
then this means you have BAD value into the header fields.
I guess you know that you MUST include these fields either as HTML (Insert >HTML >Within text) or as Hidden form elements (example: to insert the hidden form element "recipient" you must use Insert >Form element dialog, then click on the "Hidden" tab, then fill in the boxes on the dialog (*identifier* will be "recipient";  *value* you will insert the proper value, that for the recipient should be your email....)
Same for the other elements that the form says they are missing.
As far as I can see from the source of the form, that seems to be at
it seem you did a mess .
I didn't check everything, just the first one. I see the code for the first hidden form element is:
<INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="" VALUE=""  input type=hidden name="recipient" value="">
this is bad.
This means that you IGNORED the boxes on the 1SITE dialog (they are empty "") and you manually added with the HTML tab the code  
input type=hidden name="recipient" value=""
This is NOT correct. This tab is for ADDITIONAL special code.
The correct ways are two (choose one):
1) properly use the 1SITE dialog (Insert >Form >Hidden), and insert:
Identifier:  recipient
within the proper boxes (not the HTML tab!!).
2) Alternatively, you may use (within the page text), Insert >HTML >Within text, and write
<INPUT TYPE="hidden" name="recipient" value="">
You found a nice (but bad) way to mix the two things .
