    Form help

    I have two problems with my form.

    1) The fields that I want to show up on my confirmation page are not showing up.
    2) I'm not getting the results sent to my email address.

    Can someone help me!?

    Hi,

    For a form to be processed, you need some kind of processor to be the form action.

    Your action goes to a .html page. This is unlikely to be an actual form processor, but not impossible.

    What are you using (if anything) to be the form processor? I write then in php, asp and a little cgi. But thats just me.

    This is all new to me so I don't quite know the jargon. A book i'm reading gives a general idea of what CGI is but it is too general. Can you explain it to me?

    forms do not work without a script to process the form information.
