display an error message. something like:

if (!isset($name))
  echo "error!!";
// rest of code here

Subject: [PHP] Forms and Results with PHP

I have a form that a user can put his contact info.  This form posts to a
file called results.php.  The results.php file has a mail() command and the
echo (i.e. <? echo "$name"; ?>)  to show the user confirmation of what he
has submitted.

However, if someone goes directly to results.php it will show Name: blank
and email blank information.  Is there a way for the page to post an error
stating no information was submitted or is there a way to enable the page to
process without information?

Thanks for the help,
