Contact form with PHP and Flash

Nice tutorial !
June 11, 2001 by Tim Green

The ease of communication between Flash and PHP is (in my opinion) very under-explored. I hope that this tutorial serves to prod enquiring minds into exploring these possibilities further.

Thanks George, great work !

I got this form installed after about 20 minutes.. If you open it, and your movie at the same time, and also Notepad.. you can edit the .php file, and everything very simply.. then cut and paste the file into your .fla..

I forgot to tell you that the download btn will change to an invisable link,,,

so... open your eyes well,, and try to find the link,, I think that Japanes will not be able to find the link.. it needs big eyes..

Finding the download button far surpasses the difficulty of the understanding of the script.

Its like you deserve to have it if you can find it. Not just given to you in a golden platter.

I need help.:)

I applied everything, and have read over and over and i dont think i have missed anything but when the mail is sent from the website, everything appears to be ok at this stage but when i check my email i only get an email with my email address on it and "My web site" on top of my email address, what i am missing is the text or body of the mail, it doesnt come through.

Can any one help me please.

Hi there, I'm encountering the same problem as you with my contact form. I would greatly appreciate if you could let me know if you found a way to fix the problem. (to remind you, you posted a message on with regards to your contact form in flash, that didn't transmit the actual data entered in the form - you just received a blank mail, like I do now). Sorry to bother you, but I'm really stuck! Thanks ever so much for your help :-) Ben

Blank e-mail fix
June 10, 2007 by D D

Hi everyone,

I had the same problem as the people in one of the first posts.
I would get a blank e-mail that irritated me so I searched for a solution and i finally got it!

Put the text below at the beginning of your PHP file and it will be fixed :D

$name = $_POST['name'];
$email = $_POST['email'];
$subject = $_POST['subject'];
$message = $_POST['message'];

P.S. Thankx for the tutorial it has been helpful to me!

2 things - no validation - no email
July 30, 2007 by Jai Williams

Hi guys!  I've been shooting myself in the foot hear for what I'm embarrassed to say has been hours...and I came across this tutorial which seemed like it should work like a charm, but I've 2 standing issues w/it:


#1 - With empty / blank fields, the submit still goes to the next frame in the .FLA file ('thank you' message).


#2 - Even w/a completed form, I don't get an email of anykind, blank or otherwise (which may theoretically have something to do w/ #1 issue above)...


Any help you guys could provide would be GREATLY GREATLY appreciated.


Best Regards,
