After submitting HTML contact form page redirects to Server Script (ASP/PHP) file in browser

Hi,
When I submit a HTML contact form to get an email with form contents, the page redirects to my email.asp and displays the code in the browser instead of redirecting to Thanks.html page.

Here is the form code in HTML:

<form action="email.asp" name="form1"  id="form1" method="post">

Here is the ASP code:

if not NewMailObj.Send("smtp.yourdomain.com") then
Response.Redirect ("../error.html")
else

Set NewMailObj = nothing
Response.Redirect ("../thanks.html")
end if


How to prevent the page redirect to script and send an email.

Please suggest.

Thank you

If you want to redirect after a button is clicked, you can put the code inside your button's OnClick event handler.

Response.Redirect("../thanks.html")

Open in new window


Where did you include the code?

Can you submit the line-by-line code so that I can see what you might be missing?

Have you installed ASP Components in the IIS server? If not, open Programs and features, click on "Turn Windows features on or off" , Click on IIS (Internet Information Services) -> World Wide Web Services -> Application Development Features -> Check ASP and click ok

Here is the code for HTML, ASP

Contactpage.html
----------------------------

<script language="javascript">
        function Validating_Form() {
            if (document.getElementById) {
                var i, p, q, nm, test,  errors = '', args = Validating_Form.arguments;
                for (i = 0; i < (args.length - 2); i += 3) {
                    test = args[i + 2]; val = document.getElementById(args[i]);
                    if (val) {
                        nm = val.name; if ((val = val.value) != "") {
                            if (test.indexOf('isEmail') != -1) {
                                p = val.indexOf('@');
                                if (p < 1 || p == (val.length - 1)) errors += '- ' + nm + ' is not valid email address.\n';
                            } 
                        } else if (test.charAt(0) == 'R') errors += '- ' + nm + ' is required.\n';
                    }
                } if (errors) alert('Error\n' + errors);
                document.return_Value = (errors == '');
            }
        }
    </script>

Open in new window



Contact Form:
-------------------

<form action="thanks.asp" name="form1"  id="form1" method="post">

</div>
<div class="form-group">

<textarea name="txtMessage" placeholder="Message" class="contact-message form-control" 
id="txtMessage"></textarea>
</div>
                                    
<input name="buttonSend" type="submit" class="btn" id="btnSend" 
onclick="Validating_Form('txtName','','R','txtEmail','','isEmail','txtMessage','','R');return document.return_Value"
value="Submit" />
                                   
                                </form>

Open in new window

                                               



Thanks.asp
----------------
<%@ Language="VBscript" %>
<% Option Explicit %>
<html>
<head>
<title></title>
</head>
<body>
<%
Dim name, email, message, NewMailObj
name=request.form("txtName")
email=request.form("txtEmail")
message=request.form("txtMessage")
Set NewMailObj=Server.CreateObject("JMail.Message")
NewMailObj.Logging = true
NewMailObj.silent = true
NewMailObj.From = email
NewMailObj.FromName = name
NewMailObj.AddRecipient("you@yourdomain.com")
NewMailObj.Subject = "Message from" & name  
NewMailObj.Body = "You have received a message from your company website" & VBCrLf & VBCrLf & "Name: " & name & VBCrLf & "Email: " & email & VBCrLf & "Message: " & message

if not NewMailObj.Send("smtp.yourdomain.com") then
Response.Redirect ("error.html")
else
Set NewMailObj = nothing
Response.Redirect ("thankyou.html")
end if
%> 
</body>
</html> 

Open in new window



Thanks.html:
-------------------
The email has been sent.


When I submit the form, it validates the form and redirects to the Thanks.asp page.
I want it to send an email and redirect to Thanks.html

Please suggest.
Thank you.

You don't understand how forms work.  When you have "<form action="email.asp" ", the form is submitted to 'email.asp' and the browser is transferred to 'email.asp' in the process.  If you are seeing the ASP code in your browser then it is not being run on the server and you need to enable Classic ASP on the server.  It is not enabled by default on IIS 7 and higher.
