Hi all. I am fairly new to PHP and I'm running into a few problems and I don't really know where to start. I have a form that is trying to submit and send to an email address. I am using jQuery ajax function along with php mail function. I installed a WAMP server on my PC (not sure if that's where I'm running into an issue). I typically get "syntaxerror: json.parse: unexpected character" error message. Also, if this is not the proper forum to post in, I apologize in advance and please point in the right direction. Thanks! Here's the JavaScript and PHP code:

I suspect that json_encode doesn't like the HTML string contents. Try removing json_encode and just echo the msg. Or remove the HTML tags from the message text.

Hm. Neither seems to be working unfortunately.

If you removed the calls to json_encode you should be getting a different error message. What error are you getting now?

Also, it might help to post the entire error message, or web page with the error message. The full text might provide some insight.
 
Doody calls. I would really rather that it didn't. Comfort me wise and sterile tiny ad:
