Website PHP form Help!


Recommended Posts

Hey guys,


Its been a while since I have requested help, the last time I did I got sorted on here :)


I have created an online quotation form for our customers;




No matter what I do, once I press submit, I get a blank white screen.


We have the exact same form, PHP etc on the Contact Us link that works fine.


Here is the PHP code for send_quote_email.php


Any help will be greatly appreciated :)




if(isset($_POST['email'])) {



$email_to = "dford@eurocoms.co.uk";

$email_subject = "Eurocoms Quotation Form";



function died($error) {

// your error code can go here

echo "We are very sorry, but there were error(s) found with the form your submitted. ";

echo "These errors appear below.<br /><br />";

echo $error."<br /><br />";

echo "Please go back and fix these errors.<br /><br />";




// validation expected data exists

Are you getting the form results through on email?


If you're getting a blank page after hitting submit, but getting the form result through, it must be the part of the script with the custom HTML to display after.


Is it bringing the style sheets in properly? Are the CSS files in the right place relative to the PHP script?


I've not done this sort of thing for a while, but....


<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="eurocoms.css" />

<STYLE TYPE="text/css"><!--

@import url("thankyou.css");



....could there be any sort of conflict here between eurocoms.css and thankyou.css?


Good luck :thumbsup:

There is no error message! I click submit and the page just turns white?


Any ideas?




The error message should be in your web server's error log. You can change php.ini settings to display them on screen while you're developing - it's just a small security risk to have that turned on for public websites.


You're working blind with no error message. You can't expect a solution from just posting a large code snippet on a forum, unless there's some glaring error.


mj.scuba, that part isn't php, this sounds like a php error, so it can't possibly be that.


NamelessRob might have found the glaring error... It looks like the 2nd line & the last 3 lines should be deleted altogether though, rather than just altered.


delete the second line...

if(isset($_POST['email'])) {

and also delete the last 3 lines...



That's totally unnecessary & broken, the correct (looking) code to do that job appears a few lines below that.

You wouldn't actually get an error message for that, it just skips the whole thing & does nothing if a non-existent field doesn't exist.


There are also some errors in your free-online-cabling-quotation.htm - <input tyoe="text" should be type.

There won't be an error, the line I've quoted skips the script (including the html) if no variable 'email' is passed from the form (to prevent search-bots overloading the system).


As the html form doesn't contain a form input 'email', but rather 'email_address', the script jumps right to the end - exactly as it's been told to.
