    Hi,

    this depends very much on the actual formmail

    Is it me or does it seem like there is no clear cut way to get things to work. Like everyone has their own method, because all of the solutions to this problem that I have read are different.

    Hi,

    the obvious solution is to identify all the vars that should be expected from the web, document them, and add code to actually pick them up. There are circumstances where just a general pattern is known (e.g. a variable del371 representing a checkbox with the meaning "delete id 371 from database"), and pickup code will use regex
    However, if you are faced with the problem that your web host just upgraded, and you need your site up and running again as soon as possible, you would probably use one of the "collect all vars" methods

    Also, not all servers are configured the same - so solutions might differ as well

    How do I collect all vars? I've never had any of my php scripts working 100% perfectly since the upgrade. The funny thing is the server company upgraded the server, but not to the specifications I asked for, and they work for me!

    This is my PHP-code

    <?PHP

    $to = "allpaxxx@online.no";
    $subject = "RockCity post";
    $message = "Name: " . $theName;
    $message .= "\nEmail: " . $theEmail;
    $message .= "\n\n Message: " .$theMessage;
    $headers = "From: $theEmail";
    $headers .= "\nReply-To: $theEmail";

    $sentOk = mail($to, $subject, $message, $headers);

    echo "sentOk= " . $sentOk;

    ?>

    And this is my Flash code

    var senderLoad:LoadVars = new LoadVars();
    var receiveLoad:LoadVars = new LoadVars();

    sender.onRelease = function() {
    senderLoad.theName = theName.text;
    senderLoad.theEmail = theEmail.text;
    senderLoad.theMessage = theMessage.text;
    senderLoad.sendAndLoad("http://www.lillebo.org/send.php", receiveLoad);
    }

    receiveLoad.onLoad = function() {
    if(this.sentOk) {
    gotoAndStop("success");
    }
    else {
    gotoAndStop("failed");
    }
    }

    The problem is... I get the mail, but the mail contains none of the information it is supposed to contain :/ any suggestions?

    Thank you!

    Hi,

    you want to add something like
    $theName = $_POST['theName'];
    for all the vars you are sending.
    You should further add the POST option to your sendandload call - sending mails via url parameters may make it appear in browser or server histories, and also is subject to size limits

    Ey thaaanks!
    That actually worked perfectly I found a similar post by the maker of the tutorial I followed but he wrote;
    $theName = $_POST[`theName`];
    with some weird quotations and it didnt work.. imagine my frustration :P
    but thanks, have a nice day!

    Didnt know if I should start a new thread but there was an upgrade to pHP releaseed on may 1st.

    Im pretty sure my host has upgraded and Ive since been getting errors that my LoadVars cant find the php doc Im trying to sendAndLoad. Anyone else had any weird stuff happen?

    Need Help with Flash Form/PHP

    New Server uses: PHP Version 4.4.1

    1 -- Flash Form used to work fine with the following code in my 'submit' button:

    on (release) {
    /:recipient = "info@mediashox.com";
    /:subject = "feedback form from your site";
    loadVariables ("formmail.php", "", "POST");
    play ();
    }

    2 -- 'formmail.php' has been tested with another HTML form, and works fine.

    Flash won't talk to the .php file. I am not getting the emails.

    Tried a bunch of the other codes posted in this thread, can't get any of them to work either.

    Is there a simple fix for the above button code?

    Thanks very much

    Hi,

    Could you post a link to the actual site?
    is that your php so you could edit it?

    Actual site: www.mediashox.com

    Button to Form Mail: EMPLOYMENT

    Yes, the PHP is mine, I can edit it.

    I can upload .fla and .php if you're willing to look at it. I'm very grateful for the help, been trying to fix this for days now with no luck.

    Thanks, Musicman!

    That's coz it's a 'sticky' at the top of the forum category. I wonder what happened to Musicman, I thought he was helping me?

    Hi,

    right from the message that the server sends back to the browser:
    Sorry, but I cannot figure out who sent you here. Your browser is not sending an HTTP_REFERER. This could be caused by a firewall or browser that removes the HTTP_REFERER from each HTTP request you submit.
    For many years it was just internet exploder that did not send a referer along with flash requests (and hence made this kind of php script useless) - since a while Mozilla seems to duplicate that behaviour as well.

    While referer check is a quite common way to add a bit of safety to formmail scripts, and more or less the only way for shared scripts (ones that a hosting company sets up for all their non-php users), it is fairly easy to trick these scripts and supply an acceptible referer, along with an arbitrary recipient (any many a spammer these days uses some website formmail to advertise their stuff)
    Since it is your own script, dispose of the referer check, hardcode the recipient address in your script (so if someone tries to send to a test address it goes to your inbox insetad, and therefore is not useful for a spammer), and rather ensure that any field which goes into the mail header (the email as From: or Reply-To:, or the subject) is really one line

    Musicman, thank you very much for your explanation. When I said the PHP script was mine, I didn't mean 'mine', I just meant I had access to it, and could change it.

    I believe my server / hosting company won't process PHP formmail unless it has the 'referrer' for spam reasons. However, I may be misunderstanding which 'referrer' you mean. I'm only vaguely familiar with PHP. Could you please look at my PHP code [below], and show me which 'referrer check' to dispose of and where to put the recipient address? I would very much appreciate your help. Thanks again...

    <?PHP
    define('VERSION','Classic v1.07.0');
    define('MANUAL','http://www.boaddrink.com/projects/phpformmail/readme.php');
    define('CHECK_REFERER', true);

    // Variables sent from my Flash Form;
    $corps=$name."\n".$admail."\n".$phone."\n".$referr ed."\n".$website."\n".$message."\n";
    mail($recipient,$subject,$corps,"From: $admail\nReply-To:$admail\nX-Mailer: PHP/");

    $referers = array('www.mediashox.com', 'mediashox.com', '208.106.175.228');

    $valid_env = array('REMOTE_HOST', 'REMOTE_ADDR', 'REMOTE_USER', 'HTTP_USER_AGENT');

    $recipient_array = array();

    Hi,

    the line about CHECK_REFERER near the top seems to be a good place to change...
    Now, about hardcoding recipient .... just go to the webpage listed in the MANUAL entry and read about the $recipient_array

    Musicman,

    I changed the following:

    1 -- define('CHECK_REFERER', false);

    2 -- $recipient_array = array('fcf7b465cc30923b02a8cecc2ede239331c7990e' => 'info@mediashox.com', ' 2bd7df9fbc9f87040e617b5c09ad16aa85d73ecc ' => 'somebodyelse@example.com');

    Both as per the MANUAL.

    The form still does not work. I am not receiving the emails.

    As stated earlier, the PHP file has been tested with an HTML form, and it works perfectly.

    It seems that Flash will not talk to the PHP file.

    Thanks

    I have this code:
    PHP Code:
    <?php
     mail
    ("my@emailaddress.com"$subject$message"From: $fromname
    Reply-To: 
    $fromemail
    X-Mailer: PHP/" 
    phpversion());
     
    ?>
    which i believe needs to be fixed as register_globals is off on my server. Could someone let me know how to do this.
    Thanks.
