Why my contact form is going to a different page?
# April 29, 2013 at 10:01 am
Hi , I m creating a website on wordpress, and I didn’t want to use a plugin for contact us so I thought I should create my own. But I m having a problem. When you fill the form it is going to a different page even though action=”” however if the form is empty is lands up to the same page and also send a blank email.
But why is it going to a different page when I enter information in the form.
And here is the code
$emailTo = ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’;
$subject = $name.’ sent you this message from your website.’;
$body = “Name: $name: $email: $comments”;
$headers = ‘From: My Site < '.$emailTo.'>‘ . “rn” . ‘Reply-To: ‘ . $email;
$mailsent = mail($emailTo, $subject, $body, $headers);
Thank you contacting us
We will get back to you soon
echo “Your Email was not sent”;
< ?php } ?># April 29, 2013 at 1:52 pm
I tried the same code outside of wordpress and it works, but its not working in wordpress dont know why I tried # in action but no luck
I also tried < ?php echo bloginfo('home'); ?> in action, But when I use < ?php echo bloginfo('home'); ?> in action , it comes back to the same page, but it does not go to the if condition, To check I just echo “test”; but it didnt echo anything meaning its not even going inside my if condition ):# April 29, 2013 at 5:09 pm
Do both blank and filled in form emails get send? I just tried both…. sorry for the spam :P
I think that 301 redirect might be the problem… form action gets printed as `http://mstoicthemes.com/duchi`, however that causes a redirect to `http://mstoicthemes.com/duchi/` (losing the form data).# May 15, 2013 at 3:32 am
I also tried this code outside wordpress, it was working there but inside it was not working. I still don’t know what’s happening there. I think you need to discuss this with certified [Wordpress developer](http://techiesindiainc.com/wordpress “WordPress developer”).
