email with data base for adres info


I want a sort of form for email in a html-page and when the user types his
username and question and send it, there must be some way that a script or someting else knowes extra information of
the username like home-adres info. The email which send to us must contain the extra information.

How can we make that?

Include hidden fields in the form which contain the desired information.


<form name="myForm">
<input type="hidden" name="referrer">
<input type="hidden" name="date">

and then use javascript to give values to the hidden fields.

Today = New Date();
document.forms['MyForm'].referrer.value = document.referrer;
document.forms['MyForm'].date.value = Today;

There is now way to get the user's home address if the user has not given it. If you have it stored in a database, then of course it looks different, but from the browser you can't read it.

If you want to get it out of a database which you keep, then you'll have to use cookies which relate a browser to a user_id.
The script for that must be some CGI or ASP that reads the cookie, retrieves the user_id and looks into your database to get the related information, write that into the form in hidden fields and off you go...

There is not a "standard" script for that, because there are no standard databases. Get a programmer to work it out for you.
