  2. windows10 xdebug, godaddy, html submit form, php heredoc

    Don't know if these are windows10 problems but all was okay until one of w10 updates (I think) added xdebug. Since then, godaddy has trouble providing a listing of my html and php code files. My html form submit button no longer sends me to the php server
    script. There seems to be other problems but I will wait until the rest is resolved , they may goaway .

    PHP Email Form Help

    I'm working on finishing up the template for my portfolio website and need to use PHP to create an email form. I found many examples but, I am not familiar with PHP as to (which my host does not use).

    The code sends emails to my inbox if all of the required fields are filled out and meet validation. But when an error occurs from a requirement not being met, it loads a new page explaining what the error is. (You can test this here.) I would rather have a red text warning to pop up next to the required field in which the validation failed. The same thing also happens when the email submission was successful. I would rather a small text box show saying the email was successful or something like that rather than another plank page loading.

    This is the code I am currently using. The php file is external (not embedded).

    I would greatly appreciate any help people are able to give.

    Here is the html code I have so far where the php file is called.

    Code: <div id="my_contact_form"> <form name="contact_form" method="post" action="php_files/email_form.php"> <label for="first_name">First Name*</label> <label for="first_name_error" style="color: "Red"/><br /> <input type="text" name="first_name" maxlength="50" size="30" /><br /> <label for="last_name">Last Name*</label><br /> <input type="text" name="last_name" maxlength="50" size="30" /><br /> <label for="email">Email Address*</label><br /> <input type="text" name="email" maxlength="80" size="30" /><br /> <label for="telephone">Phone Number</label><br /> <input type="text" name="telephone" maxlength="30" size="30" /><br /> <br /> <label for="subject">Subject</label><br /> <input type="text" name="subject" maxlength="100" size="30" /><br /> <label for="comments">Comments*</label><br /> <textarea name="comments" cols="30" rows="6" ></textarea><br /> <p style="color: Red;">* Indicates a required field</p><br /> <input type="submit" value="Submit" /> </form> </div>[/quote] And, here is my external php file.

    Code: <?php // Most of the Php Email form was aquired from..... // How to create a simple HTML contact form // Thanks for the help. if(isset($_POST['email'])) { $email_to = ""; $email_subject = $_POST['subject']; // not required if($email_subject == "") { $email_subject = "READ NOW: This is an email from my website."; } $first_name = $_POST['first_name']; // required $last_name = $_POST['last_name']; // required $email_from = $_POST['email']; // required $telephone = $_POST['telephone']; // not required $comments = $_POST['comments']; // required $error_message = ""; $email_exp = "^[A-Z0-9._%-]+@[A-Z0-9.-]+\.[A-Z]{2,4}$"; if(!eregi($email_exp,$email_from)) { $error_message .= 'The Email Address you entered does not appear to be valid.<br />'; } $string_exp = "^[a-z .'-]+$"; if(!eregi($string_exp,$first_name)) { $error_message = "The First Name you entered does not appear to be valid."; $_POST['first_name_error'] = $error_message; } if(!eregi($string_exp,$last_name)) { $error_message .= 'The Last Name you entered does not appear to be valid.<br />'; } if(strlen($comments) < 2) { $error_message .= 'The Comments you entered do not appear to be valid.<br />'; } // create email headers $headers = 'From: '.$email_from."\r\n". 'Reply-To: '.$email_from."\r\n" . 'X-Mailer: PHP/' . phpversion(); @mail($email_to, $email_subject, $email_message, $headers); ?> <?php } ?>[/quote]
