    HTML form/PHP issue

    Hopefully someone can help. I have an HTML form on my site that I'm trying to set up a PHP script for. For whatever reason, the form on my site is taking me to my web address .php--the name of the form, instead of submitting the information and sending it to me. I must be missing something and baffled at this point, can someone take a look please? I've included the form code below, along with the corresponding PHP code. Thanks!

    HTML form:
    Code:
       <form name="demomailer.php" method="post" action="demomailer.php" onSubmit="return evalid()" class="gradient-1 content-form curved-5 form-validate" >
    
          <table width="100%">
           <tr>
    
            <td width="50%" valign="top">
              <label class="control-label">First Name</label>
              <input type="text" name="jform[first_name]" id="jform_first_name" value="" class="span3 required"/>          <label class="control-label">Country</label>

    Just off the top of my head I'd say it has to do with your evaluation script and the fact that the form name is the URL.
    HTML Code:
    <form name="demomailer.php" method="post" action="demomailer.php" onSubmit="return evalid()" class="gradient-1 content-form curved-5 form-validate" >
    You might try changing the name to just a name (and corresponding evaluation script accordingly).
    HTML Code:
    <form name="demomailer" method="post" action="demomailer.php" onSubmit="return evalid()" class="gradient-1 content-form curved-5 form-validate" >

    I've never used a <button> tag to submit a form. Since your receiving script is looking for a POST var name 'submit' I'd say it's not getting such a thing since your button tag has no value attribute containing 'submit'.

    Yeah I tried your suggestion and after submission of the form it takes me to my homepage/demomailer.php with no email to me either. So strange.

    No expert here, but a few obvious things of note:

    1. $to = $youremail;

    The $youremail variable is empty, so there is no email address to send the email to. Your email address should be in that variable at the top of the script. E.g.

    Code PHP:
    $youremail = 'thegift74@gmail.com';

    2. header('Location: '');

    This is telling your script to go nowhere once it's done. Normally, you'd specify a landing page, like a thankyou page:

    Code PHP:
