Handle multiple email receipients with checkmarks

Hello!

I would appreciate your help on this one:

Website hosted on UNIX system. I need the ability for the web visitor to be able to check off the names of the people they want their email sent to.

Here's the link:

http://calcommuters.org/bay_area/email.html

There are both individual email addresses they can send it to, OR (as you will see) one checkmark that lets them send their email to everyone on the list.  

Be aware that while the form fields are named, the form itself has not yet been properly set up -- that is it's a dummy page, and I will need to properly link the form to the form handler in the cgi bin.  I have not yet selected a form handler.  You might want to offer me a suggestion for that too.

Again, this page was not done by me -- so the form itself it not properly set up -- I can fix that.  It's the multiple recipients issue I need to solve.


The solution needs to be an html solution -- no asp or anything like that.  I have access to the cgi-bin.

Also, as a minor P.S. the result of the form will also need to be sent to a folder on the server in a comma deliminated file so that it can later be exported (downloaded) to a offline database.

Thanks

Rowby

P.S.  The first Name,  lastname and city of residence fields will NOT be included in the email.  Those fields will, however, be sent to the server's folder for later download to the offline database.

what exactly are you asking for?

given you have a form like the following

<html>
<head>
</head>
<body>
<form method=get action=#>
<input type=checkbox name=bob value="bob@aol.com">Bob<br />
<input type=checkbox name=john value="john@aol.com">John<br />
<input type=submit>
</form>
</body>
</html>

when you hit submit you'll see that the querystring
shows the name and value pair of the fields that were checked. you could change this to POST if you
feel querystring's limitation of character count will not work for you.

on the serverside you can use scripting languages such as python to process the submitted values and
send e-mail to all the addresses.

Hi,

My programming knowledge is limited to say the least.  So forgive me as I attempt to respond.  I think your answer is helping me get closer to solving my question.  

Since I don't know phython, but I have used perl scripts to process my email forms, can I use a standard perl script to process the submitted values?  

If your answer is yes, then, should I post a sample (simple) perl email form handler next and you can tell me my next step in making this form work.

Based on your comment I think I am on my way to a resolution, but I need to make sure the last part of the puzzle is working.

There are a number of perl form handlers out there, such as the ones in Matts Script archives, which are very popular.  If you are familar with the Matt Scripts or a similar one let me know and "we" could add the neceessary "submit" info to your following suggested solution:

html>
<head>
</head>
<body>
<form method=get action=#>
<input type=checkbox name=bob value="bob@aol.com">Bob<br />
<input type=checkbox name=john value="john@aol.com">John<br />
<input type=submit>
</form>
</body>

PLEASE BARE WITH ME -- I am just wanting to make sure that I have all the pieces in the puzzle working so I can finally add the working form to the website. :)

I appreciate what looks like will (hopefully) be the solution I need.

Regards,

Rowby

Hi Rowby:

Let me get this correctly. You want a Perl/CGI script that will mail one/many/all (depending on the form selection) and also store the information a text database on the server. Correct me if I am wrong. If this is it.... I will provide you a script right away.

You should be able to use formmail.pl from Matt's Script Archives. Works like a charm, and is pretty easy to understand and modify (he gives you instructions).

Besides the modifications to the page that djbusychild suggested, the only real problem is writing something that will look at the various values (email addresses) from the page and assign them sequentially to the recipient variable in the sendmail script... maybe rag2000 can help you with that, because I'm not a perl programmer...

Hi,

Thanks for the script.  

I don't see the corrected html page here.  I'm not sure if it's important I have it to make your script work.  

If you have it handy please post it. Otherwise I will fix the HTML myself.

Again thanks. I'll wait to see if  you post the HTML page.  And award you the points friday.

Thanks again,

Rowby

Hi I think it's ALMOST working.

Getting a message that says cannot open thanks, even though the file is in that folder.

Ummm I added my email address to the form, as if I were a state official, and you can test it by going to

print "Content-type: text/html \n\n";
    open(HANDLE,"http://www.calcommuters.org/email_thankyou.html") || print "could not open thanks";

http://www.calcommuters.org/bay_area/formthing.html

A minor point is as a temporary "state official" I'm not receving the email.  If there is a problem with the sndmail would an error pop up letting me know upon submission?

My previous comment came out a big garbled.  So I'll restate it and clarify it.

1)  I don't think it is sending out the emails.
2)  It can't find the thank you page, which seems a minor problem.

I assume the email is supposed to be successfully sent before it calls the thank you page.  So I think even though it's having trouble finding the thank you page, it should have sent out the checked email -- but it isn't. At least it's not sending it to the test email checkbox called ROWBY on the form located at:

http://www.calcommuters.org/bay_area/formthing.html

So I think the form is not sending out the emails. At least I am not receiving my email.

In regards to the thank you not being found, here is a snippet from the code.  Why it's not finding the page baffles me, because it is indeed located at the link.  But I'll keep looking at that link to figure out why it's not being found.....

print "Content-type: text/html \n\n";
   open(HANDLE,"http://www.calcommuters.org/email_thankyou.html") || print "could not open thanks";

I think one more item is missing from the script.  

In addition to the emails -- it needs to store the information on a text database on the server.

So to help take care of that I've created a folder called store-emails inside the cgi-bin

In case the text files are better located NOT in the cgi-bin, I also created another folder called
store-emails at the foot of the site.

Thanks Rowby

====== old comment ===
Let me get this correctly. You want a Perl/CGI script that will mail one/many/all (depending on the
form selection) and also store the information a text database on the server.....

corrections to the html page

<input type="checkbox" name="checkbox110" value="rowby@rowby.com">

please notice the names of the checkboxes, they start at checkbox0 and go upto checkbox23, if you want to insert yourself it should be

<input type="checkbox" name="checkbox24" value="rowby@rowby.com">

this is absolute URL - http://www.calcommuters.org/
not the absolute path, the absolute path will be something like /home/www/xxx/xxx/xxxx/

same goes for the file text database

and in the script please find <24, if you insert your own name on the form, make it <25, after you have finalised the stuff, make it back to <24 and remove yourself

Well everything is (or will, when I get the proper paths) is working.

I received the test email, thank you!

So I assume the reason the thank you page is not working is because I don't have the correct path, as well as the logs.  I see the log in the script so I assume it will work when I get the paths set up.

Thank you,

I will award the points tonight or saturday latest.  I have to hurry to client.

I am also increasing your points to a total of 300.

One final thing, is there a way to eliminate the <24  <25 in the script -- so I can use it for different forms. I can live with it, but it would be nice if I didn't have to go in there and change the numbers or make multiple renamed copies of the script.

i assume you have called the txt file as textDb.txt as in the script or name it whatever you want and assign it 666 rights, 'writable' file, a file that can be written to

Hi,

The hosting company (believe it or not) won't be able to give me until maybe monday.  

But it all looks fine, so I am awarding you the 300 points now.  THanks for all your help.

ok   one thing that would be nice would be if there was a way to eliminate the the <24  <25 in the script -- so I can use it for different forms, and could add and remove emails easier.

If not I can live with it as is, and it is certainly excellent as is!

Hi,

Thank you!

The script now works fine with the corrected paths.  Here is the "live" page:

http://www.calcommuters.org/bay_area/email.html

The only "slight" modification of the perl script I would like changed if possible is this one:

  for($e=1;$e<25;$e++){

This script will be used for about 4 forms on the site, and each one has a different number of email recipients. Some might have 22 recipients, some might have 40.  

Of cousre I could simply create 4 different multipleRecipients.cgi scripts with a unique name (i.e. multipleRecipients-1.cgi, multipleRecipients-2.cgi) but the additional problem is these are elected officials in the state of California and the list will be continually modified as new officials are added and others are removed, etc etc.

So it would be easier if all I had to do was change the HTML page without having to always having to also go into the cgi-script and modify the  "for($e=1;$e<25;$e++){"

Can the script be set up so that could be an unlimited number of email recipients?  No minimum and no maximum.

Thanks

Question.

I need to have further modifications done to the script.

And I will be happy to set it up as a new question with additional points.  Just tell me how much points this one is worth:

1) In addition to the other data collected in the database, I need add WHICH email recipients were checked off.  That is, if a checkmark was placed next to Gov. Davis, and Lt. Gov. Smith I need that included in the comma deliminated database.

2)  I also need the date the form was subitted added to the database in the following (or similar) format 01/01/02

----
On another note, someone commented that because the emails are embedded in the HTML that a hacker could take advantage of that and send a bunch of bogus emails by modifying the HTML page. Is there something in the script that could limit the URLS that the form can be sent from.  That would be the easiest for me. The alternative would be to have the actual email addresses in a hidden text file, I assume in the cgi-bin.  That would be more cumbersome for me and the client, but that is something to discuss.

Again, all of this this should probably be set up as a new question. So let me know what is the best way to procede.

Thanks,

Rowby

No problem. You were probably not notified since this question is "closed".  

I think it's good anyway to restate the question with the new criteria -- and to add the additonal points at the new location (which you already found):
