How do I send an email to Yahoo! iPage web hosting?

Click Here To View All Answers...

My 1st question is: How do I send an email to Yahoo! iPage web hosting? Hoping for any answer or 2. Another question I got... I have a form where the user enters a bunch of information (this is the display page). On this page, the user must select a hotlink (A HREF) to upload a file (the upload page). After this task, the user then returns to the original display page and can submit it..

The problem is a simple one. The values entered in all the text fields are cleared once the user selects on the hotlink. Obviously, I would like to save all these values so that when the user returns to the original form (by pressing the "Return" button), these values are still there..


Display page:.

<FORM ACTION="ActionPage.cfm" METHOD="post" NAME="displayform" ID="displayform">.

<A HREF="UploadPage.cfm">Press Me!</A>.


<INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="field_name" VALUE="">.


Other display page stuff goes here.....


<INPUT TYPE="submit">.


Upload page:.

This is the upload page..


<FORM ACTION="DisplayPage.cfm" NAME="Uploadform" ID="Uploadform">.


Upload stuff goes here.....


<INPUT TYPE="submit" VALUE="Return">.


I keep getting the run around as I can't get a straight answer (or at least an answer that makes sense). If anyone can give me a clue as to where I am going wrong and explain it to me in a simplified manner, it will be much appreciated. Thanks!..

Good question... I dunno what is the answer to that question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I bump into an answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably know..

Thank you both for your reply..

No, I am not trying to do what you are describing..

I'll try and explain it on the simplist terms (please note: uploading a file is irrevelant in this case)..

I have three forms: form1, form2, and form3. On form1, I am posting to form3 (i.e. all text field values are sent to form3)..

However, to finish entering form1, the user must access form2 via a hotlink (it doesn't really matter why, it's just important to note that they are leaving form1). When the user does whatever they need to do on form2, they will press a return button to go back to form1..

Here lies the problem. When the user is taken back to form1, the values are cleared..

I want these values to remain, but since I am not submitting the form, I don't see how to do so...

Sounds like you're looking for.

Client-side persistence.

; without using cookies here, your best bet is to 1)pass any user-entered form values on form1 to hidden fields on form2 and 2)script them back onto form1 when the user returns (using the url of the 'return' button) - if I'm following this correctly. How? Use the url's query string. Since HTTP is stateless, there aren't a lot of client-side options; this is a useful one to retain form data (although Netscape tends to retain it even when you don't want it to). For more, see:.

Comment #3

In IE5 you can use the userdata behavior to store local data..



For more information..

Outside IE5, you can either set a cookie, or use the search property of the URL...
