I have a webpage saved as contact_us.php but when I load it (hosted) it just returns blank.
I used the code here (answer with green tick and 23 votes):
Send email with PHP from html form on submit with the same script
The code I have (at the top of the page) is:
$to = "[email protected]"; // this is your Email address
$from = $_POST['email']; // this is the sender's Email address
$first_name = $_POST['first_name'];
$last_name = $_POST['last_name'];
$subject = "Form submission";
$subject2 = "Copy of your form submission";
$message = $first_name . " " . $last_name . " wrote the following:" . "\n\n" . $_POST['message'];
$message2 = "Here is a copy of your message " . $first_name . "\n\n" . $_POST['message'];
$headers = "From:" . $from;
$headers2 = "From:" . $to;
mail($from,$subject2,$message2,$headers2); // sends a copy of the message to the sender
echo "Mail Sent. Thank you " . $first_name . ", we will contact you shortly.";
// You can also use header('Location: thank_you.php'); to redirect to another page.
And (within body):
<form action="" method="post">
First Name: <input type="text" name="first_name"><br><br>
Last Name: <input type="text" name="last_name"><br><br>
Email: <input type="text" name="email"><br><br>
Message:<br><textarea rows="5" name="message" cols="30"></textarea><br><br>
<input type="submit" name="submit" value="Submit">
Can someone see any errors?
I tested it in XAMPP and it was working fine - sending 2 emails and saying thank you etc, but when I put it 'live' I get the white screen of death?
I have now managed to get this to work (and wasted plenty of time calling Go Daddy getting no where).
The only differences were:
<!DOCTYPE html> <html>
<?xml version=”1.0” encoding=”UTF-8”?> <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN"> <html>
I also put the php code within body instead of at the top of the document but I doubt this makes any difference.
Would that make that much difference?
