Hi, I went ahead and tried it - it works beautifully, where the title does show up perfectly when you arrive at the form.
I filled out the form both to test the actual email body and the resulting html page once you've filled out the form and submitted. The $title variable does not show up in either the email body nor in the resulting page (the thank you for filling out this form page). While I can make the resulting page very generic by not adding the $title anywhere there, but the email body must contain the $title variable. I'm thinking maybe I should be adding the hidden form field for the $title? Here's the mail code: mail("$recipientname <$final_recipient>","$form[subject]","$form[first_name] $form[last_name] ($form[email]) send the following message to $recipientname ($final_recipient) : \n\n $form[message]\n\n Name: $form[first_name] $form[last_name] \n Event: $event \n Address: $form[address] \n City/Province: $form[city], $form[province] \n Phone: $form[areacode] $form[part1]-$form[part2] \n Email: $form[email] \n Subject: $form[subject] \n", "From: $form[first_name] $form[last_name] <$form[email]>\nReply-To: $form[first_name] $form[last_name] <$form[email]>\nContent-type: text/plain\nX-Mailer: PHP/" . phpversion()); "Martin Towell" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote in message [EMAIL PROTECTED]">news:[EMAIL PROTECTED]... > sure - do exactly as you described. > > just because a variable is appended to a url, doesn't mean it HAS to be used > in an SQL statement.
