  1. good news and bad news.... good news is i downloaded the code from Larry's WS and put it on my server and the form worked Bad news is that i downloaded the code from Larry's WS and put it on my server and the form worked, lol not sure what the issue is with my code, but obviously something is wrong there.
  2. I am also having an issue with this..... both of the forms work w/o error but when i run handle_form.php the variable values are blank. if i run form.html i have all the fields but when i click submit it does nothing. i checked like it says in the book for the proper capitalization of the variables, but my text editor would tell me if the $_REQUEST is wrong or not. every other script has worked up to this point and i'm not sure what is going on. my code for the form.html is as follows: <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN"> <html> <head> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset-utf-8" /> <title>Simple HTML Form</title> <style type="text/css" title="text/css" media="all"> label { font-weight: bold; color: #300ACC; } </style> </head> <body> <!-- Script 2.1 - form.html --> <form action-"handle_form.php"method="post"> <fieldset><legend>Enter your information in the form below:</legend> <p><label>Name: <input type="text"name="name" size="20" maxlength="40" /></label></p> <p><label>Email Address: <input type="text" name="email" size="40" maxlength="60" /></label></p> <p><label for="gender">Gender:</label><input type="radio" name=gender value="M" /> Male <input type="radio" name="gender"value="F" /> Female</p> <p><label>Age: <select name="age"> <option value="0-29">Under 30</option> <option value="30-60">Between 30 and 60</option> <option value="60+">Over 60</option> </select></label></p> <p><label>Comments: <textarea name="comments" rows="3" cols="40"></textarea></label></p> </fieldset> <p align="center"><input type="submit" name="submit" value="Submit My Information" /></p> </form> </body> </html> my code for the form_handle.php is: <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN"> <html> <head> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset-utf-8" /> <title>Form Feedback</title> </head> <body> <?php # Script 2.2 - handle_form.php //Create a shorthand for the form data: $name = $_REQUEST['name']; $email = $_REQUEST['email']; $comments = $_REQUEST['comments']; /* Not used: $_REQUEST['age'] $_REQUEST['gender'] $_REQUEST['submit'] */ //Print the submitted information: echo "<p>Thank you, <b>$name</b>, for the following comments:<br /> <tt>$comments</tt></p> <p>We will reply to you at <i>$email</i>.</p>\n"; ?> </body> </html>
