Hi,

I have created forms for feedback and I want to know how to start a html file to thank the sender or confirm receiving his data after pressing the submit button.

I'll do appreciate if some body tell me the exact way to enable this action after submiting the data form.

Check my home page at http://www.geocities.com/rainforest/5346

Regards

I was not prepared to wait more than five minutes to download your page and then search for a form. However...

I understand that geocities do not allow you to write your own scripts. I assume therefore that you are using a 'mailto' script or some other generic form provided by geocities themselves. In this case the confirm screen will be that provided by the geocities script.

To have total control over the output you would need to write your own script that would generate the html based on the form input.

This will open new location in default window.
I.e. open some.html in your window.
