Hi, I'm not familiar with GoLive.  My friend's code is not working (obviously there is stuff missing.).  The page is here:

http://www.americansafes.com/quickquote.html

Here's the code.  How can we fix this webform for him?  Thanks for reading.

Oh my God... what an absolute mess.

First -- either upgrade or get rid of GoLive. The code is such a jumbled disaster it's impossible to know what's going on. 90% of the page is spacer gifs.

You have no action on your form -- it's NEVER going to do anything.

I would use something else, and contact whoever hosts your site to find out what to use to process your forms and how to set them up.

I don't really know this guy's set-up at all ... he's a total web/programming novice, and he's doing the GoLive stuff himself.  I've never seen the program, but I want to help him (friend of colleague).  What I need is an exact set of instructions that a novice could use in order to fix this form, e.g. where would he go within GoLive to set up the proper parameters, and stuff like that.

All he wants is for a user to be able to fill out this form, and then he gets an email with the responses ...  sorry to have to be so vague ... I'm really grateful for your help!

Well, the ISP that hosts the site (www.insiderhosting.com) has a clone of Matt Wright's FormMail script.
The instructions are available here:
http://www.insiderhosting.com/manuals/controlpanel/formmailClone.htm

Basically, you just add the following to your form:

<form action="http://www.yourdomain.com/cgi-sys/FormMail.cgi" method="POST">
<input type="hidden" name="recipient" value="e-mail@yourdomain.com">
<input type="hidden" name="subject" value="Feedback from web site">
<input type="hidden" name="redirect" value="http://www.yourdomain.com/thankyou.htm">

However, in looking at the source of your page, you have an error in the code by repeating the action tag twice, and have not added a custom redirect thank you page. This last step is only optional, but better than the default thank you page that the script gives you.

Note - I've edited the actual email address below for security reasons, and removed the border="0" from the hidden input tags that you had.

This is what you currently have:

<form action="http://americansafes.com/cgi-sys/FormMail.cgi"http://americansafes.com/cgi-sys/FormMail.cgi" method="post" name="getfeedback">

and then at the bottom of the form:

<input type="submit" name="submitButtonName" value="Get My Quick Quote">
<input type="hidden" name="Recipient" value="e-mail@yourdomain.com">
<input type="hidden" name="subject" value="Quick Quote Request - American Safe Co">


The correct version should be:

<form action="http://americansafes.com/cgi-sys/FormMail.cgi" method="post" name="getfeedback">

and then at the bottom of the form:

<input type="submit" name="submitButtonName" value="Get My Quick Quote">
<input type="hidden" name="Recipient" value="e-mail@yourdomain.com">
<input type="hidden" name="subject" value="Quick Quote Request - American Safe Co">

and optionally, you can also add this, once you create the thank you page:
<input type="hidden" name="redirect" value="http://americansafes.com/thankyou.html">

Please let me know if any of this isn't clear :-)

Thanks,
Sean

The form modifcations posted above should resolve the problem. Too bad we never heard back.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
