    Attach file to my contact form

    I have the following PHP form that works perfectly and I want to add the possibility to attach a file and after 3 weeks of research I still not able to find a way to do.

    Please any help will be highly appreciated.

    Thanks

    HTML CODE:

    Code:


    HTML Code:
    <form name="htmlform" method="post" action="MyphpFile.php">
    <table width="450px">
    </tr>
    <tr>
     <td valign="top">
      <label for="first_name"><b>First Name *</b></label>
     </td>
     <td valign="top">
      <input  type="text" name="first_name" maxlength="50" size="30">
     </td>
    </tr>
     
    <tr>
     <td valign="top"">
      <label for="last_name"><b>Last Name *</b></label>
     </td>
     <td valign="top">
      <input  type="text" name="last_name" maxlength="50" size="30">
     </td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
     <td valign="top">
      <label for="email"><b>Email *<font size='2'></b></label>
     </td>
     <td valign="top">
      <input  type="text" name="email" maxlength="80" size="30">
     </td>
     
    </tr>
    <tr>
     <td valign="top">
      <label for="comments"><b>Comments*</b></label>
     </td>
     <td valign="top">
      <textarea  name="comments" maxlength="1000" cols="25" rows="6"></textarea>
     </td>
     
    </tr>
    <tr>
     <td colspan="4" style="text-align:center">
    <br><br>
      <input type="submit" value="Submit">   
     </td>
    </tr>
    </table>
    </form>


    And here is the code of my PHP File:

    PHP Code:

    PHP Code:
    <?php
    if(isset($_POST['email'])) {

    $email_subject "Reporting and issue in UnlimitedWonders";
         
         
        function 
    died($error) {
            
    // your error code can go here
            
    echo "We are very sorry, but there were error(s) found with the form you submitted. ";
            echo 
    "These errors appear below.<br /><br />";
            echo 
    $error."<br /><br />";
            echo 
    "Please go back and fix these errors.<br /><br />";
            die();
        }
         
        
    // validation expected data exists
        
    if(!isset($_POST['first_name']) ||

        }

    $bad = array("content-type","bcc:","to:","cc:","href");
          return 
    str_replace($bad,"",$string);
        }

    It's quite a bit more complex than just sending contact info, but there are lots of tutorials online, such as http://www.html-form-guide.com/email...ttachment.html

    There's an argument for letting people get in contact and then, after you've responded via email, you invite them to email you the file. Otherwise, you might get a lot of unwanted file attachments. (Only you know the context of this form, though.)
