    Default Email Form

    Hi All,
    I am still using Namo Webeditor 5 because I am most familiar with it. I'd like to insert a form on a page that the visitor enters their email address and hits submit and the info is sent to my email box. I am not having any luck finding such a thing. What I have found really has no instructions on how to modify it to work for me. Can anyone help me with this? I also do not want to use any of the online services that charge.
    Thanks,
    Jeff Walters

    Hi Jeff,
    Unfortunately I haven't used the specific software you're referring to. I had a quick look and it appears that it has been discontinued (and version 5 is quite old on top of that) so it is unlikely that anyone here will be able to help with that particular software.

    Hi,
    I wasnít looking for help with Namo. I know how to use it. Iím looking for a JavaScript for a simple email form that I can insert. What Iíve found so far does not give much of any information on how to fine tune it to my needs.

    Hi there CBJeff,


    It is HTML not JavaScript that is used to create forms
    with a server side language like PHP to process it

    A basic form might look something like this...

    Code:
    
    <form action="/my-handling-form-page" method="post">
     <ul>
      <li>
        <label for="name">Name:</label>
        <input type="text" id="name" name="user_name">
      </li>
      <li>
        <label for="mail">E-mail:</label>
        <input type="email" id="mail" name="user_email">
      </li>
      <li>
        <label for="msg">Message:</label>
        <textarea id="msg" name="user_message"></textarea>
      </li>
     </ul>
    </form>

    Hi there CBJeff,

    ....hope to be able to add a submit button to it so it will be usable.
    You will find full instructions for that further down the page...

    MDN - add a button to allow the user to send, or "submit", their data

    Well I did all the reading. The form you sent me was great however I am not a programmer or coder and am totally lost on the explanation of creating a button for submit. So I think I should just play it safe an continue using a email Hyperlink for customers to use when writing to me. Thank you for your help.
