Hello there!

I would like to insert the following PHP code into a web page.
It sends me an email every time someone opens the web page.
Could someone explain how to do this?

Thank you!!

THE PHP CODE:

<?php
pSendEmail () ;

//******** FUNCTIONS ***************
Function pSendEmail ()
{

//$pos = strpos($Email, "@");
//$Email = mb_substr($Email, 0, ($pos-1));
$title = "HseMgr PH: Tenants-Current-View.php just Opened";
$message = "This page is open to Administrator and House Helper/Manager
\n\n";


mail("home@proctor-place.com", $title, $message, "From: PH <home@proctor-place.com>\nReply-To: home@proctor-place.com");
}

?>

Hi Andrea,
First is your site hosted on Coffeecup? If so you won't be able to do any php coding.
If it's on a different host then there are a couple of ways to do this.
One way is to export your project and insert the code into the page with a html editor.
You may need to change the page name extension to .php if your host isn't setup to parse php within HTML.
The other way is to setup your host to parse php inside html pages. This will allow you to leave the page names as is. To parse php inside html pages you need to add a line of code to your .htaccess file on your host.
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .html

Either way you can insert the code into a html element before export if you want but it won't work until you upload the site.
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.
