hey guys, I read this forum very often, but now I have a problem with HTML. I'm a noob at it :) , and I use this email form processor to handle my contact requests from visitors. Unfortunately I can't get this thing to work. I use the code from the mailform example and my question is;

How do I get one small textfield and one large one? I don't know how to make that textfield multiline! I tried everything but it doesn't work :tazz: .

This is what I got from the website:

<form name="formname" method="post" action="http://www.mail-maniac.com" enctype="multipart/form-data">
<input type="hidden" name="mailto" value="mailto(at)address.com">
<input type="hidden" name="from" value="mailfrom(at)address.com">
<input type="hidden" name="subject" value="Subject line">
<input type="hidden" name="fromname" value="Your name">
<input type="hidden" name="goto" value="http://www.thankyoupage.com">
<input type="text" name="sometextfield"><br />
<input type="text" name="anothertextfield"><br />
<input type="file" name="filename"><br />
<input type="submit" name="submit" value="Submit"><br /><br/>
<a href="http://www.mail-maniac.com" target="_blank"><font size="1" face="Verdana">Mail-Maniac, free HTML email form processor</font></a>
</form><input type = "text" name = "largetext" value = "This must be a laaaarge textfield!">


tnx in advance!

Right, first off...

Why do you use another website to process your forms?

And im an ace at html and i know roughly a bit about php.

Would you like me to design you a html form that is very basic that you enter your details etc, then i will make a simply php process form so that it will process the form and send it?

Would you like that?

And what is your website???

Well, the thing is that I don't have a PHP server, and I don't want to pay any money :tazz:

To adjust the length of the input field, just add size=# to the code. To make a multi-line input field, you can use a textarea, I think this is the code: <input type="textarea">
