Simple Php Contact Form-helpme

Recommended Posts

Hello all,I'm using a contact form from this source http://www.thewebhelp.com/php/php_contact_...age_validation/,And I've run into a few problems:1.I want to add a name (full user name) field into the form. Can you please show me what to do (just paste the code with the changes).2.I wanna send the message in a non-English language which uses UTF-8. But when I get the email, the subject is in gibberish, how do I make it be sent in UTF-8?This is the code (which you can also download from the link I gave):Contact.php

I did change it. But no matter what the subject comes as gibberish. I even tried:enctype="multipart/form-data" accept-charset="UTF-8" in the formand "header("Content-Type: text/html; charset= Windows-1255");" in the php (tried also utf-8 and).Also, please can you tell me how to add a "name" field into this form (I managed to add name field, but it caused the "from" field to disappear making no email sender).EDIT: Okay, I managed to receive the message in the real language. I used ISO 8859-8. Now I only need to know how to add another field.

That script's security is a bit poor, the post vars shouldn't be accessed using the REQUEST superglobal (use the POST one instead) and they should be validated (e.g. proper email address). Also, the escape slashes should be negated by disabling magic_quotes, not by manually removing them, which is unreliable (what if you install on a system without magic quotes?). http://www.php.net/manual/en/security.magi...s.disabling.phpTo add an extra "field", just concatenate that string onto the message (in the example, the form has a field called "name". Alternatively, you could give the name as the alias for the from address.

$name = $_POST['name'];//...mail("you@email.com", "Online Form: $subject", "{$_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR']\n\n$message\n\nName: $name", "From: $name <$from>");

The code you gave me is not good.Gives me this error:"Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_ENCAPSED_AND_WHITESPACE, expecting T_STRING or T_VARIABLE or T_NUM_STRING "How to fix it, what is the proper code?Edit: OKay, I managed to fix this problem. But now I got more problems:1.I've got a header at the top of the php :

header("Content-Type: text/html; charset=ISO 8859-8");

But it cause problem because there is another header in the "else":

 else {	// if verification code was incorrect then return to contact page and show error	header("Location:".$_SERVER['HTTP_REFERER']."?subject=$subject&from=$from&message=$message&wrong_code=true");

And when the else applies, it gives "Header may not contain more than a single header, new line detected." error...2.Subject title still in gibberish...
