    Hi all

    I have a friend who is playing around with a web site for his business, however he does not seem to be able to get the 'Place order button to work. he wants to be able to fill in the fields and then click 'place order' then have the information/order details emailed to him.

    If anyone hgets a chance they can see an order test page at the following URL:

    http://www.alphalighting.co.uk/ordertest.htm

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated

    The first thing I would suggest is that the pages be made in something other then Publisher as there is way too much code for such a small page which makes troubleshooting issues like this very hard and makes the pages very unreadable by search engine spiders.

    Second, unless this website is hosted on web-space that has Frontpage extension enabled the form will never work when its made using any Microsoft WYSIWYG editor unless a form handler is specified (ie a cgi formmail script)

    This is the part that submits the form and it is bieng submitted to WEBBOT-SELF which is part of the frompage extensoins
