HTML Form to PHP Email

Hi

I am stuck with this one, i have gone through group by group on this PHP file but cannot seem to see where its stopping. i first done a simple contact form with a drop down and then a checkbox which worked but i dont know after adding the rest of the form inputs where the script stops.

attached are the 2 files that worked then i added the extra input forms.

Your first problem is that variable names including those in $_POST variables are case sensitive.  This the corrected version of this section.  Note that the variable name for $telephone didn't match the form name of 'PhoneNumber'.
	// validation expected data exists    
	if(!isset($_POST['FullName']) ||        
		!isset($_POST['Email']) ||        
		!isset($_POST['PhoneNumber'])) {        
		died('Sorry, there appears to be a problem with your form submission.');	          
	}

	// personal information
  $companyname = $_POST['CompanyName'];     
	$fullname = $_POST['FullName'];     
	$email_from = $_POST['Email'];     
	$telephone = $_POST['PhoneNumber'];

Open in new window

The second problem will be that you have not checked to see if the $_POST variables are set which will cause 'undefined index' errors.  This is how I normally do that.
if (!isset($_POST['Email']))  $email_from = ''; else $email_from = $_POST['Email'];

Open in new window

Third,  you need to give default values to the variables created from the $_POST variables which is also shown above.
