Channel 1's Mail-To Form With Infinite Fields

This page contains information specific to the Channel 1 system, for use by registered Channel 1 users. We now have a script that allows you to create a customized mail-to form for your Web page. In addition to just plain text fields (as many as you want!) you can also add check boxes, radio buttons, and pop down menus. Visitors to your Web page fill out the form and all the values are sent to you as an e-mail. OK, here's how to do it.


1. To start with, Click here to see what our Mail-To Form looks like. Here is the HTML code for our Mail-To Form.

2. Copy the HTML code into any text editor such as NotePad, Word, or Simpletext. Using your text editor, change the recip field from www@user1.channel1.com to your email address, for example tester@user1.channel1.com. Now you can modify the form as you like. Remember, there is no limit to the number of text fields, check boxes, or radio buttons that you may put on your form. NOTE: There are some required fields:



3. Save the text file as .html or .htm

4. Upload the document to your file space on the Channel 1 server. Remember to transfer the file as ASCII mode(Windows) or Text(Macintosh).

That's it! Now, when the form is used, you will receive an e-mail message with the values of items selected. For example,


Date: .......
Subject: What A Great Form.
From: "Mr. John Doe"
To: tester@user1.channel1.com
