    Default FormHandler error - simple form

    I have setup a simple form to email the results to an address... I've done this successfully before a few years ago but it's not working now...

    I get this error message when I hit the Submit button:

    Method Not Allowed
    The requested method GET is not allowed for the URL /scripts/FormHandler.asp.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
    Apache/1.3.41 Server at daveforarizona.org Port 80

    I have copied the FormHandler.asp into the root (where index.html lives)...still get the error.

    Any ideas? (I'll contact my ISP too)

    Thanks

    Are you sure you web host supports asp?

    Try changing the language to PHP and republish

    Thanks Mike.

    I think I tried PHP too...I'm not using the NOF formshandler though, just a forms container, some fields and a submit button.

    I should try the NOF formshandler, eh?

    PS: I'm still waiting for word from my ISP.

    I've got the formshandler to work -- it sends me an email with all the fields ok...

    Bad news though - I have a multi-line text field that throws off a "field too long" error even before I fill the text/edit box.

    I have NOF 9.1 update 5

    And I remain baffled and frustrated...

    Ok, I figured it out. Saw it out of the corner of my eye on one of the documentation sites I found...

    You have to change the ERROR Event field (field too long) to get the option to specify a long maximum length!!!

    How droll...

    Thanks for responding!
