Blank emails from PHP Spry Form

Hi,

On my website i have a PHP contact form with Spry Validation.
Even with the Spry Validation, i keep getting blank emails sent through from the form to my email.
Im not sure why this is happening, something server side i guess?
Could someone please help with this issue. The form and validation works fine when you enter in details as normal.
Please see the code for the PHP and HTML below.
<form action="enquiry-process.php" method="post" id="index-form">
<fieldset>
<legend>Enquiry</legend>

<div><span id="spry_name">
<input name="name" type="text" id="name" value="name" />
<span class="textfieldRequiredMsg">A value is required.</span></span></div>

<div><span id="spry_company">
<input name="company" type="text" id="company" value="company" />
</span></div>

<div><span id="spry_email">
<input name="email" type="text" id="email" value="email" />
<span class="textfieldRequiredMsg">A value is required.</span><span class="textfieldInvalidFormatMsg">Invalid format.</span></span></div>

<div><span id="spry_phone">
<input name="phone" type="text" id="phone" value="phone" />
</span></div>

<div><span id="spry_enquiry">
<textarea name="enquiry" id="enquiry" cols="35" rows="6">enquiry</textarea>
<span class="textareaRequiredMsg">A value is required.</span></span></div>

<div>
<input name="submit" type="submit" value="submit" id="index-form-submit" />
</div>

</fieldset>
</form>

*** PHP Process Script ***
<?php

$name=$_POST['name'];
$company=$_POST['company'];
$email=$_POST['email'];
$phone=$_POST['phone'];
$enquiry=$_POST['enquiry'];

$toaddress = 'email@email.com.au';

$subject = 'General Enquiry';

$mailcontent = "Name: ".$name."\n\n"
."Company: ".$company."\n\n"
."Email: ".$email."\n\n"
."Phone: ".$phone."\n\n"
."Enquiry: \n\n".$enquiry;

$fromaddress = "From: $email";

mail($toaddress, $subject, $mailcontent, $fromaddress);

?>

Well, my initial idea was wrong.  Your Spry is fine.

>> Even with the Spry Validation, i keep getting blank emails sent through from the form to my email.

Because the form is processed on a separate page, robots can follow the form tag to that page and submit mail merely by accessing the page with a normal URL because you do nothing in enquiry-process.php to check to see if the form is submitted.

Try this:

<?php

if (isset($_POST['submit'])) {

$name=$_POST['name'];
$company=$_POST['company'];
$email=$_POST['email'];
$phone=$_POST['phone'];
$enquiry=$_POST['enquiry'];

$toaddress = 'something@email.com.au';

$subject = 'General Enquiry';

$mailcontent = "Name: ".$name."\n\n"
."Company: ".$company."\n\n"
."Email: ".$email."\n\n"
."Phone: ".$phone."\n\n"
."Enquiry: \n\n".$enquiry;

$fromaddress = "From: $email";

mail($toaddress, $subject, $mailcontent, $fromaddress);

} else {

echo "Direct page access"

}

?>

and then test it by going to:

http://www.yourdomain.com/enquiry-process.php

You should see "Direct page access" but no mail sent.  Submitting the form should send mail.

Hi JiveMedia,

I'd need to see the whole of the HTML (especially the javascript) to tell you but I am assuming something is not set right with the Spry Validation and thus the form submits.
