    Submit form and redirect


    Can someone help me find a more elegant way to gather entries and redirect please?

    On a giveaway page on our Promodeler website (promodeler-dot-com/giveaway/201311-dot-htm) when the form is submitted, the individualís e-mail client opens for them to press send. Unfortunately, several folks have called because they think there's something wrong - this method is awkward.

    What I'd prefer is for the entry e-mail to happen in the background while redirecting to the new page. However, I'm new still and haven't figured out a cleaner way of doing it. Many thanks.

    Do some online research about: "AJAX Form Submission" and/or "jQuery AJAX Form Submission". That should give you some ideas on how to do, what your wanting to do.
