A problem with textarea in the form


Recommended Posts

This is my code:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTDXHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"/>
<title>Forum Posting</title>
<!-- Script 5.1 posting.html -->
<div><p>Please complete this form to submit your posting:</p>
<form action="handle_post.php" method="post">
<p>First Name: <input type="text" name="first_name" size="20" /></p>
<p>Last Name: <input type="text" name="last_name" size="20" /></p>
<p>Email Address: <input type="text" name="email" size="30" /></p>
<p>Posting: <textarea name="posting" rows="9" cols="30"></textarea></p>
<input type="submit" name="submit" value="Send My Posting" />

and this is what I receive:



Any idea why this is happening?

Do you want me to place this file on external server? I'm not sure how to do that yet. :sorry:

If with html file is the same procedure with wordpress using FileZilla I may try but don't feel like opening new free server address right now.

You could attach the HTML file on a post in this forum. That should be good enough for testing.

Make sure that you were able to reproduce this error in the file before uploading it.

Most likely you tried to close the textarea tag with /> rather than </textarea>. Since <textarea> is not an empty tag it would not be considered closed by the browser.
