I am making a form on my website and I need help with, I think the PHP part of getting the info from after people fill out my form back to me. I have no clue how to get it back. I have made the whole form and its on my site, but it wont come back. If anyone can help me, please do!

Thankyou, Geoff

Ok, first, get rid of that javaScript form check function. You don't need it, it's insecure, and we'll do the checking in PHP later.

2. Change the <form> tag to be:

<form method=POST action="formcheck.php">

formcheck.php will be the php script that will send the email

3. Give a "name" element to each checkbox:

<input type="checkbox" value="ON">

should be:
<input type=checkbox name=forum value="ON">

Each "name" element need to be different for each checkbox.

It's a little bit better interface to have a dropdown list in this situation. Do you need to have checkboxes?

4. Remove the spaces from other "name" elements:

<input type=text name="Website URL" size="25">

could be better written as:
<input type=text name="web_url" size=25>

5. Create the script "formcheck.php" and put the following code in the script:

<? phpinfo(); ?>

Put the script in the same directory as the form.
Let me know when you have this done, and we'll go from there.
