    Track people using a web form

    http://talkaboutwireless.biz/contact_us.php

    Is there anyway to track a person that uses this page? I have someone sending us some messages and I would like to find out who they are.

    yes, you can grab any user's ip address who uses the form.
    oe you could use a cookie to track 'em, but that's less reliable as the user could have cookies disabled but cannot disable their ip address unless going through a proxy server beforehand.

    code to grab user's ip address in the form:
    Code:
    <!-- goes in the html form itself -->
    <input type="hidden" name="ip" value="<?php echo $IP ?>">
    code to post user's ip address in the php mail script:
    (depending on your script)
    Code:
    // get posted data into local variable
    $ip = Trim($_POST[ip]);
    No one has any right to force data on you
    and command you to believe it or else.
    If it is not true for you, it isn't true.
