Hi there,

Right... where do I start? I have a htm page with a PHP script embedded. The PHP script's function is to capture all values entered by a visitor in a form and send it to my email address. I have put the form near the end of the page, so it is not visible when the page loads, unless you scroll down (I hope this makes sense). This script functions fine, but the echo that is returned (upon confirmation that the message is sent, the script "thanks" the visitor) is not placed at the top of the page. So people would have to scroll down to where they filled out the form in order to read the confirmation note. I would like to adapt the code so that the confirmation message is shown at the top of the page in a popup. I have pasted the PHP script in this message. Could someone please have a look at it and suggest what I would have to add in order for this to work?? :whistling:

MANY THANKS!!! Fran xx

$page = new Page("template_skin1.htm");
