    adding a contact us form to a web page

    The website I’m updating is part of an economy hosting plan from GoDaddy.

    I want to add a contact form on a page rather than expose an email address on the site itself, but am struggling to get it to work

     

    I understand that the standard php mail() is prohibited.

     

    However, I saw mention of “Two non-CGI form mailers are included in Linux shared hosting account default files: webformmailer.php and gdform.php.” in the help or community.

     

    We don’t appear to have either in the root directory. Should we have them? Or can you suggest what options I’d have?

    Is this a cPanel server or just a Linux server?

     

    You should be able to create a simple PHP script -

     

    2 options you could do is to create a google form or if possible convert the site to WordPress as I think you'll spend less time than trying to convert the script

    Thanks for the reply @PL281!

    I certainly update the site using cPanel.

    I've got a workaround at the moment using a 3rd party site. 

    I'll resurrect my attempt at a php script, but just wanted to check whether there should be something already available.
