Need help with submit form please

I am trying to figure out how to get the form to email me the info. All I can find is talk about things like “action.php” but not how to create it. At least not without redoing the whole form stuff. Here’s a snippet of my code from my index.html page:

<section class=“ftco-section ftco-section-parallax bg-secondary ftco-no-pb”>
<div class=“parallax-img d-flex align-items-center”>
<div class=“container”>
<div class=“row d-flex justify-content-center”>
<div class=“col-md-7 text-center heading-section heading-section-white heading-section-no-line ftco-animate”>
<div class=“row d-flex justify-content-center mt-4 mb-4”>
<div class=“col-md-8”>
<form action="#" class=“subscribe-form”>
<div class=“form-group d-flex”>
<input type=“text” class=“form-control” placeholder=“Enter email address”>
<input type=“submit” value=“Subscribe” class=“submit px-3”>
I just want someone to enter their email address and when they click Submit, it emails me the info.
I’ve looked through the template files and can’t seem to find anything I can edit to send to email.

This site I am building is from the free templates called “Spring”.

Good evening :slight_smile:

There are many methods on how to implement form processing function in html templates, this is the man reason why we are not including such forms in the file, check this very simple method and if you want to extend functionality please do a small research in the web:

First, that link does not tell me how to make the submit button work.
Second, I have done a lot of research, so don’t assume I haven’t. All the info I find seems to have me re-do all the fields. Nothing I can find just says how to make the current submit button email me. Lots of info pointing the submit button to a .php file, but not how to create that file. Apparently it’s more than “form action=mailto”.
I was hoping there was a css file I could edit or something. I’ve been through so many and not finding it.

Since this is actually your template, I figured you could easily tell me what to do. Funny thing is, I built a 100 page website 15 years ago and was able to make a form and have the submit button email me. But I’ve forgotten how now, as I haven’t built a site in over 10 years.

I also figure if I can make this one submit button work, I can apply that to the other pages that have forms.

Good morning

@newhopechurch solution on the link is not the exact thing you need, this is the method and you can apply it on your website, unfortunately, we don’t provide PHP files in the HTML template (i did explain it above why)
this is a relatively easy task and if you have previous experience then this will not be an impossible thing for you, just check our link I gave and take your time to review it
Here is the more easy example:

Thank you for your help.
I found some code, and am on my way to getting it working.
Not as easy as “mailto” was years ago.

:slight_smile: well, things are changing and to a better direction
Ok, i will close this case now, let me know if you have other questions is new ticket
