    still not very clear. what's the url? maybe if we had a look at the forms, it'll become a little easier to see what you mean.

    keep in mind that the form is just a bunch of entry fields. your form requires an action attribute that usually points to a script. this script is the one that does the actual sending.

    if you're talking about the forms on the ordering and the commisions pages, the action attribute is not defined.

    Code:
    <form name="form1" action="">

    furthermore, the id and name attributes of some of your input elements are not correct. they must begin with a letter, and may be followed by any number of letters, digits, hyphens, underscores, colons and periods. nothing else. they cannot be followed, as you have done, by forward slashes, white space and ampersands. also, your ids and names should be different. and you cannot use the same id twice.

    there are a lot of other mistakes. but i focussed just on the forms.

    no. the post goes with the method attribute. the action attribute requires the script that does the actual sending. you do have a send mail script, right?

    no no no. the action attribute needs to point to a script. i don't know how else to put it. you need a little program to process the data from the form.

    Use FrontPage - it will do it all for you!

    Or I regularly use ASPmail.
