    Thumbs up Need a contact form

    Hello,

    I need a contact form on my website, that will send to my email address what the visitor enter in the form fields. The problem is that I can't run any php scripts.. is there a way to use some html form?

    You can submit the form to your email, but that would rely on the user having an email client and address set up, not to mention the spam you'll likely receive.
    To err is human. To really foul things up ... you need a computer.

    unfortunately no, if you can use asp, cgi, perl then maybe, bot html alone cant do it. its just a language that defines the structure of the page. you'll just have to use the method yamangman said above.

    Where is your site hosted?

    Its very unusual these days to have a site that can't run PHP/ASP/CGI/Perl..My company offers this even on our basic dirt cheap package

    mailto: URL might be a winner? That way you only worry about what their client does.

    Digging through an old HTML book, something like this might work nicely:
    Code:
    <FORM METHOD=POST ENCTYPE="text/plain" ACTION="mailto:youremail@yoursite.com">
    
    (Body of the form, E.g.)
    
    Name: <INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="name">
    Address: <INPUT TYPE="text" Name="address">
    
    <INPUT TYPE="submit" value="Submit Form">
    Please note you may have to confirm submission in email client
    
    </FORM>

    As Spud says, are you sure you cannot use any form of script? Seems unusual, and there are a multitude of nicer ways to do contact forms using something like php
