I thought it was an email problem.  If you just need a form, here's one.

http://www.kolstromkreations.com/formex.html


PERFECT!!

WHAT HAPPENS when the submit button is clicked?
View Source shows
<input type="submit" name="submit" value="submit"/>
I have no clue what that means or where the info will end up going.

You'll also need to make a thankyou.html page or change the redirect landing page to some other existing page.

So I need another page?
Not sure what redirect landing page you are talking about.
YES, I am lost as usually.

When somebody clicks submit, I get this:

Subject: Form Submission     
From: somebody @whatever.com   
Date: Thu, Jul 10, 2008 7:59 pm
To: me @ kolstromkreations.com

FirstName: Joe
LastName: Schmow
categories: shoes clothes jewelry
comments: I sell stuff.
discount: $2.00 off
email: somebody @whatever.com
storename: What Ever
storeurl: http:// whatever.com
submit: submit
-----------------------------------------------------------------
This e-mail was generated from a form submission on your website:
kolstromkreations.com

Then the user is sent to thankyou.html, so yes make a page for it. 
In this example thankyou.html IS the redirect landing page. 
If you want the user to end up on some other page, you'll need to change it in the code.  You don't want the form to send the user to a non-existent page and have them get a '404-file not found' error.

Quote
<input type="submit" name="submit" value="submit"/>
I have no clue what that means or where the info will end up going.

All that does is make the submit button.

The info goes to your email for the domain you put the code on.
There's a lot of other stuff you can do with forms, but this should get you going.
Just grab the code, put it on any page, and make thankyou.html

OK I am missing something

I have http://www.businessesgrowingtogether.com/Discount/Submission
When you fill it in and click submit you end up at
http://www.businessesgrowingtogether.com/gdform.php The page cannot be found

you should end up at
http://www.businessesgrowingtogether.com/Discount/thankyou

PLUS -- I have tried it several times and I have not recieved any emails at all.

SO I still don't have this email form thing figured out.
The email should go to BGT@BusinessesGrowingTogether.com but it's not going anywhere that I am getting it.

Setting it up as 'Catchall' adds functionality without upgrading your plan or buying extra boxes.

I have ALL my doamin names set up that way.

AH HA!!!


I called my friends - LOL - at godaddy.

Everything is working now!!!


FYI - due to the fact that my hosting for BGT is FilthyRichFashions and the form mail can only be put on the main hosted account it wasn't working.  I had to point the form that kolstromkreations did to FilthyRichFashions

ALSO just incase anyone cares -- you can only have ONE email address used on ALL forms hosted within a site.  SO now my FilthyRichFashions form email will end up coming to the BGT email.  But that's ok - I only get one or so a year from there anyways!

OH OH OH


I am still in search of a great domain to use to direct buyers to the Holiday Discount page.

I think http://www.businessesgrowingtogether.com/Discount/Store
is too long!  So I am wanting to buy a domain name that will be much shorter that can be used year after year and possible for other times of the year as well.

And NO I am not spending $3200 to buy SpecialDiscounts.com

He told me if I wrote my own form mailer script I could have it sent where ever I wanted.  I said I am lucky enough to be able to copy and paste! 


The one thing I don't like --
the BGT that shows once they click submit and get to the thank you page --
You'll see it when you sign up!  lol

I used the form worked really well.

As far as a domain name to shorten it maybe

bgtebookofsavings.com or ebookofsavings.com, this would be kind of generic so you would be able to use it for anytime of the year.

donnacrafts - I sent you an email in reply to your submission

For some reason it did not send me the store category you want to be in.
Not sure if it's the form or if you didn't enter it.
I think it was me messing with the form that caused it not to work.

Discounts by category
Buttons with coding for sellers to post

donnacrafts - you are now listed in all 3 categories.

I also have a category page made for every category on the list.
I am just hoping I have all the categories I need so I don't have to edit everyone of those pages again.
Kicking myself for not trying to use that pull info from coding that is in this forum somewhere!

Thanks everyone for your compliments and all your help. 
No way would have it turned out like this without the help I received on this board!

Now we need to get sellers to participate!
