Forms question

Does anyone know if it's possible to get rid of the characters that are substituted for spaces when a form is returned.

When I receive a Request for Contact form from my site it appears like this

Title=&First+name=Whipping&Surname=Post&Position=Dogsbody&Company=Blue+Grey&Telephone=0161+748+9188&email=[email protected]&Enquiry=Printing&Submit=Submit

On this form it isn't to bad to read. But on other forms I have it's becoming a pain due to the amount of text.

Is this something that you have to live with or is there a better way. The form by the way was generated by Dreamweaver MX.

Cheers

The reason the form data is in a string is this;

<FORM ACTION="mailto:[email protected]" METHOD="POST">

This code justs send all the value pairs as an email.

If you want the form details to arrive more legibly, you need to use a script of some kind.

Does your host provide CGI scripts, a CGI Bin or support PHP?

The easiest would be to use formmail...you can get this script free here click here

This script is used buy 1,000's of sites
