    Hi,

    having a closer look, I see
    Code:
    <html xmlns:o="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office"
    xmlns:w="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:word"
    xmlns="http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40">

    It seems you are on a macintosh. Dont you have simpletext or something else that allows you to write a text of, say 100 characters and results in a file no larger than 100 bytes?

    Hi,

    this is your text file now
    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
    <html>
    <head>
      <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
      <meta http-equiv="Content-Style-Type" content="text/css">
      <title></title>
      <meta name="Generator" content="Cocoa HTML Writer">
      <meta name="CocoaVersion" content="949">
      <style type="text/css">
        p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Helvetica}
      </style>
    </head>
    <body>
    <p class="p1">&lt;?</p>
    <p class="p1">mail("tom@tomartin.net", "test message", "just a test", "From: webserver@tomartin.com");</p>
    <p class="p1">echo "mail sent...";</p>
    <p class="p1">?&gt;<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></p>
    </body>
    </html>
    This is what it should read (and how it looks in the browser)
    Code:
    <?
    mail("tom@tomartin.net", "test message", "just a test", "From: webserver@tomartin.com");
    echo "mail sent...";
    ?>
    Maybe you should try to write a "text" rather than "html" file in the first place, to keep software from doing things that hinder rather than help

    Are you saying I need to make it as a rtf or .txt file and upload it? Cuz if I do that, it just downloads when I click on it. As evidenced here:
    http://tomartin.net/mail.rtf

    Hi,

    make it a txt (rtf also adds stuff to the file that you would not want, just different stuff), upload it, and rename it to php on the server

    I don't think I quite understand. I did what you said (Changed the rtf format to a txt format, then uploaded the txt file, and changed the extension to a php file).
    http://www.tomartin.net/mail.php
    That is what shows up though. What did I do wrong? Haha, this is more complicated than I was thinking it would be

    Edit, nevermind, that works now when I click on that. So should I just try retyping all the original PHP script into a txt document and then try sending an e-mail from my contact form? Or is there another step I need to take?

    Hi,

    strange... it complains about stuff in lines 7 through 9 although the entire file should be exactly 4 lines long

    I still believe the best program to write php text is one that does not even know about documents, html, rtf or anything like that - just plain text

    I wrote that in Text Edit on my mac. What program do you recommend? And what should I do now? I mean it works if I click on it, and it sends me an e-mail, but when I tried to upload my Flash file and change that txt file to a PHP file, no message was sent.

    Hi,

    that mail.php on your server still seems to contain rtf. I am not used with a mac at all, but I recall a friend mentioning simpletext. I will ask her
    Where did you put your flash form (the swf, not the fla)?

    Simpletext was replaced with Text Edit on macs. Though I'm wondering, should I have placed my php file in the same folder as my swf file? The way I have it set up is as follows (this is the local file setup, I'll show the remote site later, I have to go to work now):



    Should I put that mail.txt in the same folder as my SWF?

    Hi,

    it is usually good practice to put the swf and the php into the same folder and just refer to it by "mail.php" (not http://www.yourserver.com/mail.php - this causes problems when people visit yourserver.com instead of www.yourserver.com)
    In your particular case you might have
    <embed src="folder/movie.swf" ....>
    in your index.html file. In that situation the plain "mail.php" in your movie refers to the folder with the index file, not the one with the swf

    So I ended up just calling the customer service line, and apparently they had my domain on a server which didn't like PHP, and only used SMPT. So once they switched it over, I got it working, so we're all good. Thanks for your assistance though, I appreciate it.

    Grrrrr

    Sorry if this has already been covered but theres alot of posts to go through.

    ok so actionscript 2 flash CS3

    Code:
    var senderLoad:LoadVars = new LoadVars();
    var recieveLoad:LoadVars = new LoadVars();
    
    Sender.onRelease = function() {
    	senderLoad.theName = theName.text;
    	senderLoad.theGladiatusName = theGladiatusName.text;
    	senderLoad.theEmail = theEmail.text;
    	senderLoad.theSubject = theSubject.text;
    	senderLoad.theMessage = theMessage.text;
    	senderLoad.sendAndLoad("http://ultimate-signatures.com/form.php", recieveLoad);
    }
    
    recieveLoad.onLoad = function(){
    	if(this.sentOK) {
    		_root.gotoAndStop(300);
    	}
    	else{
    		_root.gotoAndStop(305);
    	}
    }

    $subject = "The Legion Contact Forum";
    $message = "Name: " . $theName; 
    $message .= "\nGladiatusName: " . $theGladiatusName;
    $message .= "\nEmail: " . $theEmail;
    $message .= "\n\nSubject: " . $theSubject;
    $message .= "\nMessage: " . $theMessage;
    $headers = "From: $theEmail";
    $headers .= "\nReply-To: $theEmail";
    
    sentOK = mail($to,$subject,$message,$headers);
    
    echo "sentOK=" . $sentOK;
    
    ?>

    HI, If i send to flash vars this way, i have no problem seeing them in a dynamic text box :
    PHP Code:
    $myTotal=45;
    echo 
    "&myTotal=$myTotal&"
    But actually i get the $myTotal value from a POST:
    PHP Code:
    PHP Code:
    $myTotal=$_POST['total'];
    echo 
    "&myTotal=$myTotal&"
    And this way i get no value in my dynamic text box

    Any ideas?

    Ive already search the forum ,with no clues.

    Shouldn't you be getting your variable from $_REQUEST['total']?
    Did you check the php file on it's own to see if it output $myTotal as the value in the name/value pair string?

    Yes, its echos fine.

    But it doesnt appear in Flash.

    But actually Musicman gave me a nice tip that works , i already have the values in my php, and with flash i was trying to call them again to the server, so instead of that i use FLASH VARS.

    THKS ANYWAY.

    (Asterix's are hiding my email from spambots just so you know)

    <?php
    function clean($data) {
    $data = trim(stripslashes(strip_tags($data)));
    return $data;
    }
    $exploits = "/(content-type|bcc:|cc:|document.cookie|onclick|onload)/i";

    Hi, I'm old but back after a long time.
    I'm not going to be hard on you, but also I'm not going to find where your poroblem is. But try:
    PHP Code:
    error_reporting(E_ALL); 
    at the very first line of your script.
    it should prevent

    Or -if your HTTP-server is Apache- you can also put this debug switch in a .htaccess file
    Code:
    # php_value display_errors Off
    php_value display_errors On
    just some other tips:
    PHP Code:
    <?php
    $recipient 
    "chris@asteriskguru*com";
    // and
    if (mail($recipient,$subject,$message,$headers)) { }
    // In case you use variables only once...
    // then I would put those field as hard as possible, so:
    if (mail("chris@dom.tld"$subject$message$headers)) { }
    // but also counts for $subject and especially $headers
    ?>

    // Lack of an defined action parameter will usually default on the script itself.
    <form action="" method="post">
    // But with "" as value, I would not rely on that. so maybe:
    <form action="<?php echo $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']; ?>" method="post">
