Invalid email address error  (See more user questions)

Hi

Had a quick look at your form.

The action is correct.

You have two email inputs of the same name:

<div class="box103-email-field">
<input type="text" name="email" size="45"/>
</div>

and

<div class="box105-design-id-field">
<input type="text" name="email" size="45"/>
</div>

Input names MUST be unique. Delete one if you don't need it.

You have a textarea with no name:

<div class="box107-text-field">
<textarea rows="10" cols="43">
</textarea>

Should be something like:

<div class="box107-text-field">
<textarea name="comments" rows="10" cols="43">
</textarea>

You can call it by any name you like, so long as it is unique.

I sent a blank form from your site. Your form states that certain fields
are required. You need to set these in the script.

I tried an email address (bob@bob.com) in the form and didn't get an error.
What email gave you an error?? The fact you have two email input fields
might be a factor.

I should say, my script processes forms, it doesn't make them. The customer
must make his own forms (this is stated on my sales page and in the support
section). The internet is dripping with tutorials on making HTML forms, so
you shouldn't have any problems in that regard and would have picked up the
two errors above.

Any questions, just let me know.

Best wishes.
