Netlify Form not submitting name field and message body

I am using Netlify Forms over at

Unfortunately, the form is only partially working. Doing some tests, only the email input is sent through, all other fields are not included with the submission, like name and the message body.

 <form class="[ form--contact ]" id="form" name="contact" method="POST" data-netlify="true" netlify-honeypot="email" validate>
        <div class="[ form__field ]">
          <label class="[ form__label ]" for="name">Name <span class="red">*</span></label>
          <input class="[ form__input ]" id="name" name="name" type="text" placeholder="Your Name" autocomplete="off" required>
        <div class="[ form__field ]">
          <label class="[ form__label ]" for="mailer">Email <span class="red">*</span></label>
          <input class="[ form__input ]" id="mailer" type="email" name="mailer" placeholder="" autocomplete="off" required>
        <div class="[ form__field ]">
          <label class="[ form__label ]" for="message">Message <span class="red">*</span></label>
          <textarea class="form__message" id="message" name="message" placeholder="Say hello..." autocomplete="off" required></textarea>
        <div class="hidden" aria-hidden="true">
          <label for="email">This field is not for humans.</label>
          <input id="email" type="email" name="email" autocomplete="off">
        <input id="lead-source" type="hidden" value="Abaco Aggregate Website">
        <input id="lead-url" type="hidden" value="">
        <div class="[ form__submit ]">
          <input class="[ btn btn--black btn--solid--lg ]" id="submit" type="submit" name="submit" value="Send">

And this is what it looks like on Netlify:

Shouldn’t this work?

Hiya, sorry you are having trouble getting your forms to work.

This Support Guide is the first port of call to debug any forms issues. There are also many other Support Guides for forms - you can find them here: #Netlify-support:support-guides

We also recommend trying to search the forums or look at topics tagged Netlify forms if you haven’t already - it’s likely your question was already asked by someone else!

If you are still having problems, please provide more information such as what you have already tried, and a link to your live form. :slight_smile:

@perry, I’ve checked out the forums, everyone has some particular issue in relation to form submission. Thus, adding the name attribute to no avail.

I may be missing something having looked at the form too long, but I cannot for the life of me figure out why the other field values are not being submitted.

It’s a strange problem for just the email name="mailer" field to come through.

The form is live at the link in the original post. I’ve tried adding the name attribute and nesting the inputs in the label element. Bupkis.

@fool, I see that you commented on the Support Guide, do you have any idea, why only fields would be submitted.

Hey there @jsphpndr

Thanks for following up, and thank you for including some code in your original post! It sounds like you have been hard at work with this! I just need a bit more information so that our team can do some digging here.

  1. The URL for your live form as you want visitors to use it
  2. The URL of your deployed html form. In case you have a javascript form, we need to literally be linked to the html version you’ve deployed, as mentioned above (look for “ pure javascript form ”)
  3. The form name that you’ve set and that shows in our UI
  4. Any errors or logs from the Netlify build logs, dashboard or browser developer console
  5. Description of anything you have tried that did or didn’t help or make things better/worse
