    So i have a contact form on wordpress using ajax, but it dont work.

    Here is the contact form:

    And the code on functions.php:

    add_action( ‘wp_ajax_nopriv_send_message’, ‘send_message’ );
    add_action( ‘wp_ajax_send_message’, ‘send_message’ );

    function send_message()

    if($_POST != $_SESSION)
    echo “Wrong Code!”;

    $name = $_POST;
    $email = $_POST;
    $phone = $_POST;
    $subject = $_POST;
    $message = $_POST;
    $address = $_POST;

    if(get_magic_quotes_gpc()) {
    $message = stripslashes($message);

    $e_subject = __(‘You Have Received a Message From ‘,’framework’) . $name . ‘.’;

    $e_subject = $subject . ‘:’ . $name . ‘.’;

    $e_body = __(“You have Received a message from: “, ‘framework’)
    . “n”
    .”Phone: ” . $phone
    . “n”
    .__(“Their additional message is as follows.”, ‘framework’)

    $e_content = “” $message “rnn”;

    $e_reply = __(“You can contact “, ‘framework’)
    . __(” via email, “, ‘framework’)

    $msg = $e_body . $e_content . $e_reply;
    if(wp_mail($address, $e_subject, $msg, “From: $emailrnReply-To: $emailrnReturn-Path: $emailrn”,”-f $address”))
    _e(“Message Sent Successfully!”, ‘framework’);
    _e(“Server Error: WordPress mail method failed!”, ‘framework’);
    _e(“Invalid Request !”, ‘framework’);



    Can someone help me out?


    >Contact form with ajax

    …Where’s the AJAX? What does your `/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php` look like?

    What actually happens when you try to submit the form? Anything? Do you get a success message but no email? Try to be as specific and detailed as possible.


    Yes i get the message: “Message Sent Successfully!” that is in functions.php, but no email.

    EDIT: here is the contact form:

    My admin-ajax.php:

    hmm… you’re sending this mail to whatever is in `$_POST` – do you know what that variable contains, or if it contains anything? try doing `exit( $address );` to see if it contains what you expect.

    In addition, this makes your form susceptible to header injection – from WP’s function reference:

    >_Multiple recipients may be specified using an array or a comma-separated string._

    That means that, if I pass a comma-separated string of email addresses into `$_POST`, I can spam as many people as I want using _your_ website. You should check that field to make sure it contains only a _single_ email address (or, better yet (if possible), hard-code the `to` address instead of accepting it from the form).


    <*input type="hidden" name="target" value="[email protected]" />*

    This is in the form. So yes, the “target” is correct .. :/

    I really dont know why it is failing


    Well, actually, I just tried your form and it appears to be working.

    Did you fix it already?

    >You have Received a message from: Adrian


    >Their additional message is as follows.

    >” Hi, I’m traq on css-tricks. This form seems to be working. Did you get this message? *I* did. (Thus demonstrating the header injection vulnerability I described earlier.)

    >Let me know; comment back in your conversation on css-tricks. “

    >You can contact Adrian via email, `{redacted}`


    wtf .. it dont work for me. You can try to fill it. i wont receive any email. whys is this happening? already tried to put several emails, and nothing..

    EDIT: i guet your emails. did you fill it on my website?

    its so strange if you use my contact form from here:

    because i fill it and tried now, and didnt received anything!!


    This is so weird!

    When i fill the email with a fake email, like this: [email protected] , i receive the form on my email..

    When i fill it with a real email, lile or @gmail, i dont rereive it LOL


    got it working. had to use smtp config plugin to use a gmail mail as “From:”

    thanks for your help ;)


    >got it working. had to use smtp config plugin to use a gmail mail as “From:”

    The emails were probably getting caught in a spam filter, then. You can also add a `Sender: [email protected]` header (or similar) so mail servers know you’re not trying to spoof the mail origin.

    p.s. fix that header injection problem! Someone **will** find that, and then you’ll be a spam server. _Trust me_, I got my 1and1 mail server blacklisted that way once!
