HTML Code for ebook signup form

2 replies

I'd like to put a form on my blog for people to sign up for my free ebook but the code I tried didn't work. Here it is:

<form action=""
First Name: <input type="text" name="firstname" size="30"><br>
Email: <input type="text" name="email address" size="30"><br>
<input type="submit" value="Submit This Form">
<input type="reset" value="Clear This Form">

When I tested it, the data was sent to my gmail address (what I used for the test) instead of the one listed after "mailto:..." . Weird! I've searched the Codex and also Google, to no avail. All they have is code for GetResponse and VerticalResponse email software.

I've taken a few classes in html but consider myself very new to the whole thing.

I sure do appreciate any help!

    The mailto: action will only upon up default Mail box of the users from where they can mail you to get the ebook. In most cases this will not help you to ppl to register for your ebook. You need something more custom from where once the users signup then the data is directly send to your specified email address.

    Here is one such script in PHP

    Hope this helps you

    check out:
    it'll handle what you need. It's free for small amounts then $30 a year I think.

    Good luck.
