Hi all,

I have a form that gets inputs from the user and when hit submit, it sends 2 emails off.
Problem is, how can i do a preview of both emails before they are sent off?
When previewing, how can i go back to edit? and then preview and submit ?

Did you write this script yourself? If so you should know all you need to do is echo the form input on your page instead of mailing it when they hit the preview button.

Example:

<?php

if($_POST['action']=="mail") {

//Mail the form off
mail("firstemail,secondemail","subject","body");

} elseif($_POST['action']=="preview") {

//Don't mail it. Just print the stuff on the screen to preview it.
echo "something: " . $_POST['something'];
echo "somethingelse: " . $_POST['somethingelse'];
echo "<a href=javascript:history.back(-1)>back</a>";

}

?>

<form action=page.php method=POST>
<input name=something type=text>
<input name=somethingelse type=text>
<input name=action value=mail type=submit>
<input name=action value=preview type=submit >
</form>

oops, slight modification...

<?php

if($_POST['action']=="mail") {

//Mail the form off
mail("firstemail,secondemail","subject","body");

} elseif($_POST['action']=="preview") {

//Don't mail it. Just print the stuff on the screen to preview it.
echo "something: " . $_POST['something'];
echo "somethingelse: " . $_POST['somethingelse'];
echo "<a href=javascript:history.back(-1)>back</a>";

} else {

?>

<form action=page.php method=POST>
<input name=something type=text>
<input name=somethingelse type=text>
<input name=action value=mail type=submit>
<input name=action value=preview type=submit >
</form>

<?php } ?>
