    @jurotek I’d actually recommend against that example – it has bad security ideas in it (e.g., printing user output without validating or sanitizing it first).

    it appears that [github is down while they investigate unicorns](, but here’s a link to my standard-response [example PHP contact form](

    **EDIT**: github is back up; [here’s the gist](

    Nice one traq! I know that is hard to do. The way I did it was much more complicated that it seems you did it.

    Thanks @Eric. It’s a common enough question, so I figured I’d make an example.

    I’m rewriting it as a class (object-oriented code), which will make it much more flexible and easier to use – but functional code is less intimidating for a lot of people, so I started that way. I’m also working on the docs (but I’m in the middle of another tutorial right now).

    BTW github is back up; [here’s the gist](

    Here’s how I did it with five pages lol. Turned out nice albeit less easier than yours and uses JS unlike yours.

    @traq post back would you when you finish with that new one your working on. I’d be very interested to see it. Thanks :)

    Yeah, I’ll post back here. Maybe I can find some time for it over the holiday.


    Is there something missing from your `formmail.php`? It seems incomplete (some vars are unused; others seem to be used but never defined…?). Or were you focusing more on the AJAX parts?
