FormToEmail.php not sending to my e-mail.

Hello,

I have created a report page that uses the "FormToEmail" format to post the information on the page.  The HTML page is:  https://lotcs.org/sky_pilot_rpt.html.  When I select the "Send Form" button, it works fine as far as I can tell, because after submitting, the PHP file comes up that tells the end user that the report was submitted successfully.  However, the information on the form never shows up in my e-mail inbox.  Below is the code for my PHP file.  Thanks in advance for your help!  Have a blessed day, eh?

All the best,

Chaplain Dale A. Iannello

 

<?php

$my_email = "[email removed by moderator]";

/*

Enter the continue link to offer the user after the form is sent. If you do not change this, your visitor will be given a continue link to your homepage.

If you do change it, remove the "/" symbol below and replace with the name of the page to link to, eg: "mypage.htm" or "http://www.elsewhere.com/page.htm"

*/

$continue = "http://www.lotcs.org/sky_pilot.html";

/*

Step 3:

Save this file (FormToEmail.php) and upload it together with your webpage containing the form to your webspace. IMPORTANT - The file name is case sensitive! You must save it exactly as it is named above! Do not put this script in your cgi-bin directory (folder) it may not work from there.

THAT'S IT, FINISHED!

You do not need to make any changes below this line.

@Chaplain Dale,

Check your e-mail Spam / Junk folder.   That said, your form is woefully outdated, not secure and should be replaced with a more modern one.

 

HTML5 is the web standard since 2008.

 

Use a PHP sending library to process your form data. This one is recommended by hosting providers because it's secure and reliable.

Hope that helps.

Thank you for the information Nancy!

The PHP code came from when I was using CS4.  Presently our chaplain/sky pilot reports are through Wordpress:  https://skypilot.puptent1.org.  But, the person who handles the reports has become ill and cannot continue.  He wants me to create a report online on our main GoDaddy server instead of Wordpress.  The form that I created in Dreamweaver CC is:  https://lotcs.org/sky_pilot_rpt.html.  It would be nice to submit the form to some sort of database so that the reports can go to Excel.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Have a nice day!

All the best,

Dale Iannello
