    Hello

    So set up my contact form inside of a HTML page, it runs through cgi and all seems to work fine
    EXCEPT I would like to have an alternate "success" page.

    I followed the example given HERE
    and I have looked around the web and they all say the same thing.

    So why after following the directions and testing/debugging (I've tried debugging for over 3 hours now) do I still get the default success page.

    my hidden field looks like this:

    <input type="hidden" name="success" value="http://www.mysite.com/success.html">

    but nada.

    The text doc that goes with the cgi mail, nothing has to be added to that does it?

    My return page (the default) looks like this:

    The following email message was sent.

    From:
    To: me@mysite.com
    Subject: Customer Comment or request

    firstname: Joe
    lastname=Doe
    email=bahhumbug@themourge
    comments=I'm tired of this not working and going to the correct successpage
    Submit=Send email
    success=http://www.mysite.com/success.html

    lastname:
    email:
    comment:

    cgiemail 1.6


    So that's my problem this time lol, anybody want to take a guess

    TIA

    Hi Brian,

    I use that same script on a couple of sites so I took a look at it.. On mine I have the hidden redirect parameter named differently.

    <input type="hidden" value="http://www.mysitenames.com" name="redirect">

    Maybe give that a shot..

    Thanks for your tip HotSpice,

    It states (in the cgi documentation) you must not change the name from success, but I tried your snippit of code anyhow.

    Only sad to report it didn't do the trick.

    I will not give up, but still looking for advice or help

    Well Joe,
    I owe you a BIG THANK YOU


    It works great and the level of control over the form is great. Easy to set up. It's up and running smooth right now. (from download to writting the form to upload and testing in under an hour. Way cool!
