Submit Button on Publisher-Produced Website




My submit button on my website does not function (it is
supposed to send the form to me as an email). It sends an
error message that the url cannot be found.

This button used to work. Even if I delete the button and
put in another in a different location, the same problem
recurs, making the order form useless.

Anyone help?

Form processing requires 2 things,
FP server extensions
http uploading.
This is covered on my faq page and also more in depth in my publisher
article section.

specifically do I look? Thanks for your help!


I have a submit button on my site & with my ISP I have to cut/paste
this into the appropriate source code on my page. The submit code I
get via Publisher 2000 does NOT work.

Revised/new code:

<form action="fpmailto.php" method="post" onsubmit="return
<input type="hidden" name="s-email-address"
value="(e-mail address removed)">
<input type="hidden" name="s-email-Subject" value="ProMaintainer,
maintenance CMMS software">
<a name=top></a>

Here is the code that I had to change:

<form action="--WEBBOT-SELF--" method="post" onsubmit="return
<!--webbot bot="SaveResults"
s-email-address="(e-mail address removed)"
s-email-format="TEXT/PRE" b-email-label-fields="TRUE"
s-email-Subject="ProMaintainer2000, maintenance CMMS software"
s-builtin-fields="Date Time"
<a name=top></a>

I don't know if the above is even applicable to your prob.

Changing hosts would indicate to me that you did not get
the new server configured the same as the previous host.
You need FP extensions and you need to do http publishing
This is covered on the FAQ -
And in detail at
The latter covers verifying the extensions are installed

I also cover this topic visually in my tutorial on
uploading at

Thanks -- but I couldn't find the specific references on
your website: can you point me to specific references?
This submit button always worked until recently and I had
made no changes to my website except change hosting
companies. The hosting co. says it is not their problem
but a problem on the site. I can't find what that could
be and my order form is useless. Have tried redoing the
submit button but the problem always remains. The
hosting co. does have FrontPage extensions enabled, so
that isn't it! Desperate!

Get the ISP to give you the correct code.
Not all code works with all ISP's. If your ISP is using an non-standard
system, then Microsoft cannot cater for that.
This is not a Publisher issue.
