PHP Script / HTML form and Javascript


Recommended Posts


a few weeks ago i posted for some help with a form issue i had, where i needed to include or exclude form elements based on the user choices, and javascript was suggested.

I eventually managed to get exactly what i needed to happen work using java, so thank you for your help there, unfortunately that has itself unravelled its own problems.


The script only sends the email if the user chooses ALL the elements. If they dont, say they choose only 2 out of 3 services, and 1 stays hidden, i dont receive the email, but the script seems not to have a problem, because it doesn't return any kind of error, and passes the user to the sendmail outcome url - somewhere along the road, it just doesn't send it.


One possible answer i think is maybe my host blocks the emails, but why would they!


Here is the php code, would it help if i posted the html form code as well?
