When I was using a geocities free account I was able to use forms without using an email address in the action part of the form by using this:
Code: [ Select ]
<form method=post action="http://us.1.p.geocities.yahoo.com/forms?login=yourGeocitiesName">

Unless they've changed things since then the form contents will go to the email address you used when you setup your GeoCities account, but your email address won't be exposed. The instructions for doing this used to be found under the "Add Ons" section of the main GeoCities Page in the Communications > Email Forms section.

I'm sorry, I have to say this. I know we all like "free" stuff, but nothing is ever "free" and it usually causes so many more headaches than it's worth.

How many cans of pop did you drink today? 2? 3? 4? Let's say 2 @ U.S. dollars .50 cents each. OK...a dollar a day for pop (or soda as they call it in some places). That's an average of $30 US per month just for a couple drinks of pop a day.

So how seriously do you want a good website? Does that put it into perspective? There are so many good hosts that will give you a lot more for less than $20 per month. So what am I suggesting? Drink less pop?

No, I'm suggesting weigh the small cost of having a real website vs. the headaches of the "free" ones. I'd be willing to bet that this question wouldn't have even needed to be asked if it was hosted on a real site.

(Keep in mind I'm not knocking GEO -- I used their free service for several years before I learned better). If nothing else, PM UNFLUX and talkt to him. I know he offers hosting service and I suspect his rates are reasonable.

Unfortunately, GeoCities doesn't give you any options in using their email forms. You have to use their action code and you can't specify the page to go to after submission. The user will see a page like:

Code: [ Select ]
The following form submission was sent.

email: Blah@blah.com
comment: blah blah blah
  1. The following form submission was sent.
  2. email: Blah@blah.com
  3. comment: blah blah blah


It will just list the fields that were submitted and the same information will be sent to whatever alternate email you have setup through GeoCities. If you want the info to go someplace else, you would have to go to your GeoCities account and change the alternate email.

O well,
I guess that i am going to wait a few more days and place it on freewebs. I couldn't do that becuase my account we newer than 7 days. I hate that.
