Unhappy Help with emailing form from Flash


I went into the tutorials section and downloaded the fla in the "Send Mail Contact Form (PHP and Flash)". It doesn't seem to be working at all. I don't know if I have the PHP script in the htm file in the right place, but I copied and pasted EXACTLY what I downloaded for the tutorial. I have included both the htm file and the fla, and if anyone can lend a hand, I'd really appreciate it. In order to find the form, just navigate to the "contact us" frame on the timeline. Thanks!

Here's a link to the actual site since you probably won't see the fonts correctly:

You have 2 major problems, but both are very easily fixed.

Problem 1: To view a flash file over the net, it must be a swf, not a fla. The way to fix this is when you have the fla open in flash jut hot ctrl and press enter. This will create a swf in the same location as your fla file.

Problem 2: php script does not go into the htm file, it goes into a separate php file. usually this file has the extension php but in your case it needs to have the filename "mail.php4"

anyway since they were such small probs, I fixed them, the only thing you have to do is unzip the file I've attached, open "mail.php4" and change the email address to your email. Then paste the files "mail.php4", "emkay site.swf" and "index.html" onto the server.
