Hi Guys!

I'm new to this forum, I'm here for some HTML help. I like the smileys btw :thumbsup: !

Anyway, I recently set up a webaccount on a free webhoster. Works great, only problem is that it doesn't support PHP. It's not really a big deal, since I'm not really a PHP coder anyway, but I would like to set up a proper contact form (I dislike mailto links).

I searched google and found a form mailer which displays no ads and has no limitations to the amount of emails to send. It works great, but I would like to add some required fields using javascript. So when a user forgets to fill in his emailaddress in a field, the javascript would detect and report it back to the user.

I searched the formmailer website but I couldn't find a way to let the formmailer do it, therefore I;m asking help with the javascript code. Thanks in advance!

Here is an example:

<title>Input validation example</title>

<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
function validate( input ) {

  // Check the value of the email field and if empty give an alert.

  if (input.email.value == "") {
	alert( "You must include an email address" );
	return false;

  // Email field is not empty, return true and process the form.
  return true;

<form action="mailto:yourname@yourdomain.com" method="post" onsubmit="return validate(this);">
Enter your email: <input type="text" name="email" />
<input type="submit" name="Send Email" />

This is very basic... you can jazz it up as needed.

This, though, should give you an idea how its done.
