Netlify form not submitting

Hey everyone!

Decided I would try using Netlify’s built in form submission but I’m having a bit of trouble figuring it out haha.

<form name="contact" class="styledForm" data-netlify="true"> <h2>Get in touch.</h2> <input type="text" name="name" placeholder="Name"> <input type="email" name="email" placeholder="Email"> <input type="text" name="message" placeholder="Brief Message"> <button type="submit">Send</button> </form>

When the form submits, the page refreshes to the same URL but with all of the params that were submitted in the form (think of how a GET request looks when submitted to a REST API).

However, this doesn’t seem to actually be submitting the form. Nothing shows up in the forms or overview tabs of my Netlify dashboard.

I’m sure I’m making some silly mistake, I just can’t detect it.




hi! your first place to start is this article:

if you still have issues after working through this, let us know :muscle:

I hope you got this sorted out, but if not, I think you should include method=“post” as an attribute to the form-tag. Otherwise the form, when submitted, will make a GET-request instead of a POST-request
