[Pro] Form problem

Hi All
I’m running into a small problem; on my form I have 2 buttons “de heer” and “mevrouw” (Mr. & Ms.). The person who fills out the form clicks one of them. However, in the e-mail I get the message say’s: “Mr. Ms on”! This way I still don’t now who is contacting me. I would like something like “Mr on” “Ms Off”. I think you now what I mean.

What am I doing wrong?

Regards,
Rob

Change the checkboxes to radio buttons, give the same name to those radio buttons but set the values to what you want sent in the form.

Personally a drop down menu might be better for what you are looking for, in English you might have: Mr. Mrs. Miss. Dr. etc. so a menu would seem more suitable, that is not to say you should not use radio buttons if that is what you want to use.

Another question about this form: after sending the e-mail <<>> shows as sender in the receivers e-mail. Is this normal?

No, but I can’t really help you there as I am not sure what action are using for the form handler?

This tells me it is PHP Feedback Form: action="offerteaanvraag-go.php".

Look carefully at the instructions at Tim Plumb’s site (http://freewayactions.com) for this Action. The field names must be named precisely (and in English, and case-sensitive) for the sender’s e-mail address and full name to be concatenated into the message by the handler code. You may name any other fields however you like (as long as you follow the rules for variable naming*) and they will be passed through exactly as written.

Walter

*A valid variable name begins with a single letter a-z or an underscore, and may be followed by as many other letters or number 0-9 as you like. NO other characters at all may be used, particularly extended (ö é accented or “high-bit”) characters, and especially no other punctuation (besides the underscore) or spaces.

For your contact name field you have

<input name="Contactpersoon" size="45">

this should be

<input name="name" size="45">

Your radio buttons should have the same name and different values. You have

<input type="radio" name="De heer" value="aan">
<input type="radio" name="Mevrouw" value="aan">

This means that you can select both De Heer and Mevrouw
if you change these to

<input type="radio" name="aan" value="De Heer">
<input type="radio" name="aan" value="Mevrou">

you will get what you want.

For your email field uou have

<input name="item18" size="45">

this should be

<input name="email" size="45">

All these are changed in the inspector with your field/radio selected look under the 3rd Tab

Thanks a lot for the help. All works now the way it should. Although I have to admit that my head turned red when I discovered that I completely overlooked the e-mail input name…
