Problem with my website form


Recommended Posts

I have a registration for m on my website and it only sends me the required fields upon user submitting form, the optional fields, even when filled out does not get sent?  I do not know what I am doing wrong,  Can you please check this php file and see if there is an obvious error I cannot find?  Please help as I am completely new to this and am building the website for a community sports club in my free time.  I have attached the html page to this request in case it helps.  Thanks in advance



$myemail  = "info@gtta.gi";
$email_subject = "Registration Form";

$name       = check_input($_POST['name'], "Enter your Name");
$email      = check_input($_POST['email'], "Please Enter your Email");
$phone      = check_input($_POST['phone'], "Enter your contact number");
$text       = check_input($_POST['text']);
$gender     = check_input($_POST['gender']);
$do         = check_input($_POST['do']);
$address    = check_input($_POST['address']);
$played     = check_input($_POST['played']);

if (!preg_match("/([\w\-]+\@[\w\-]+\.[\w\-]+)/", $email))
    show_error("E-mail address not valid");}

$message = "Hello! The Registration form has been submitted by:

Name: $name 

E-mail: $email

Phone: $phone
DOB: $text
Gender: $gender
What they do: $do
Address: $address
Played?:  $played";

mail($myemail, $subject, $message);

header('Location: thanks.html');

function check_input($data, $problem='')
    $data = trim($data);
    $data = stripslashes($data);
    $data = htmlspecialchars($data);
    if ($problem && strlen($data) == 0)
    return $data;

function show_error($myError)

<b>Please correct the following error:</b><br /><?php echo $myError; ?>

On the dropdown the name attribute value is applied to the select element only, NOT! the options. The $_POST['nnn'] key or index name represented by 'nnn' must match the value of the name attribute.

<select class="form-control" name="Gender">



are treated as different.

ALL form inputs, input select, textarea, radio, checkboxes must have a name attribute and value to be retrieved by $_POST[''].
