I am using the instructions on this website"Using form mail to create a contact form" and I'm confused on #7 which is talking about including an input tag to tell the form which email address to go to. I am using WebEasy Professional software for my website and I don't see anything regarding an input tag. Where should the email address go? Should it all be included in the html action section? When I test the form out, I do get the response saying "thank you for submitting the form" but I never receive an email. Please help

Hello lisamo21,

I'm sorry you're having trouble setting up your contact form with FormMail.

The hidden input tag is a completely separate tag and cannot be merged with the form action tag. Your form action tag should look similar to:

<form action="http://www.yourdomain.com/cgi-bin/FormMail.pl" method="post">


In WebEasy Professional, you should be able to use the Custom Script Assistant to add custom HTML code into your page. You will want to use the Custom Script Assistant to add the input tag that will look similar to this:

<input type="hidden" name="recipient" value="you@yourdomain.com" / >


If you want to add the optional tags (shown in Step 8 of our article) you will use the Custom Script Assistant to add those as well.

Please let us know if you have any additional questions or need further assistance.

Regards,

Christi N.
