I added the FormMail.pl pearl script to my cgi-bin folder and made the necessary changes. When I test the contact form I am receiving the email from my website, but info fields are blank. Does anyone have a contact form I can use based on HTML5 and CSS3 that works?
Thanks

Hi Sherrel,


<strong>When I test the contact form I am receiving the email from my website, but info fields are blank.</strong>

If you are getting blank data, the first thing I would check is to ensure your input fields have both a name and id value as in:
<div class='code_block'>&lt;input type='text' <strong><u>name</u></strong>='firstname' <strong><u>id</u></strong>='firstname' /&gt;</div>


If you wanted to update your question with a link to the page that is not working correctly, I'd be more than happy to review it further.

Thanks,
- Brad
