    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


    $name= $_POST;
    $email= $_POST;
    $subject= $_POST;
    $comments= $_POST;

    $emailTo = ‘[email protected]’;
    $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);

    echo “

    Thank you contacting us

    We will get back to you soon

    echo “Your Email was not sent”;


    else part





    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 in action, But when I use 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 ):


    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 ``, however that causes a redirect to `` (losing the form data).


    Thanks for trying but what do I do? I still can’t find a way. I can stop that redirect, I will put
    in action, so now it would come back to the same page but its not going into the if condition.


    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]( “WordPress developer”).
