how to receive an email after sending the form

  • Hello everyone.
    how to receive an email after sending the form here is what i tried

    // Sending email after Front-end post submission
    add_action('acf/save_post', 'yourdomain_save_post', 15);
    
    function yourdomain_save_post($post_id) {
    	// Return if not a post
    	if( get_post_type($post_id) !== 'recette' ) { // here 'post' will be your post type
    
    	    return;	
    
    	}
    	
    	// Return if editing in admin
    	if( is_admin() ) {
    	     return;
    	}
    
    	// Vars
    	$post = get_post( $post_id );
    
    	$toEmail = get_bloginfo('admin_email');
    	$subject = $post->post_title;		
    	$body    = $post->post_content;
    	$from    = 'perroquet666@hotmail.com';
    	
    	wp_mail($toEmail, $subject, $body, $from );
    }

  • Hi @flexi2202

    This is what I use and it works ok:

    $post = get_post( $post_id );
    
    $title = wp_strip_all_tags(get_the_title($post->ID));
    
    $to			= "{$admin_email}";
    $subject	= "{$blog_title} :: {$title}";
    $message	= "Your message here";
    
    $headers = array(
    	'Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8',
    	#'Bcc:' . 'name@email.co.uk',
    	'From: '.get_option( 'blogname' ).' <no-reply@your-domain.com>'
    );
    
    // send email
    wp_mail($to, $subject, $body, $headers );

    Perhaps alter for your own needs and see if it works.

  • Hello
    thanks for the code, but I still do not receive an email, here is my new code

    // Sending email after Front-end post submission
    add_action('acf/save_post', 'yourdomain_save_post', 15);
    
    function yourdomain_save_post($post_id) {
    	// Return if not a post
    	if( get_post_type($post_id) !== 'recette' ) { // here 'post' will be your post type
    
    	    return;	
    
    	}
    	
    	// Return if editing in admin
    	if( is_admin() ) {
    	     return;
    	}
    
    	// Vars
    $post = get_post( $post_id );
    
    $title = wp_strip_all_tags(get_the_title($post->ID));
    
    $to			= "{$admin_email}";
    $subject	= "{$blog_title} :: {$title}";
    $message	= "Your message here";
    
    $headers = array(
    	'Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8',
    	#'Bcc:' . 'perroquet666@hotmail.com',
    	'From: '.get_option( 'blogname' ).' <no-reply@your-domain.com>'
    );
    
    // send email
    wp_mail($to, $subject, $body, $headers );
    }
    
  • It’s possible that my code example uses $admin_email and $blog_title which I declare elsewhere in my code.
    You either need to declare them or set them to your own values and see if that works.
    You also didn’t change the FROM email

    Have you checked your spam filters?
    Does your WordPress site currently send emails?
    Have you checked your error logs?

  • thanks for your help, i just changed the code again, but i still don’t receive email, nothing in spam either. maybe I indicate in the wrong places my email to receive emails

    
    // Sending email after Front-end post submission
    add_action('acf/save_post', 'yourdomain_save_post', 15);
    
    function yourdomain_save_post($post_id) {
    	// Return if not a post
    	if( get_post_type($post_id) !== 'recette' ) { // here 'post' will be your post type
    
    	    return;	
    
    	}
    	
    	// Return if editing in admin
    	if( is_admin() ) {
    	     return;
    	}
    
    	// Vars
    $post = get_post( $post_id );
    
    $title = wp_strip_all_tags(get_the_title($post->ID));
    
    $to			= "{'perroquet666@hotmail.com'}";
    $subject	= "{$blog_title} :: {$title}";
    $message	= "Your message here";
    
    $headers = array(
    	'Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8',
    	#'Bcc:' . 'perroquet666@hotmail.com',
    	'From: '.get_option( 'blogname' ).' <perroquet666@hotmail.com>'
    );
    
    // send email
    wp_mail($to, $subject, $body, $headers );
    }
    
    
  • Your WP site definitely sends emails?

    Your code (which goes in the functions.php file) is still wrong. Try:

    
    $to			= "perroquet666@hotmail.com";
    $subject	= "Form submission successful";
    $message	= "Your message here";
    
    $headers = array(
    	'Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8',
    	#'Bcc:' . 'perroquet666@hotmail.com',
    	'From: '.get_option( 'blogname' ).' <info@your-domain.com>'
    );
    
    // send email
    wp_mail($to, $subject, $body, $headers );
    

    Ensure you change the info@your-domain.com in the FROM field to a valid email account on your server

  • thank you for the correction but unfortunately I do not receive any mail, nor in spam

    // Sending email after Front-end post submission
    add_action('acf/save_post', 'yourdomain_save_post', 15);
    
    function yourdomain_save_post($post_id) {
    	// Return if not a post
    	if( get_post_type($post_id) !== 'recette' ) { // here 'post' will be your post type
    
    	    return;	
    
    	}
    	
    	// Return if editing in admin
    	if( is_admin() ) {
    	     return;
    	}
    
    	// Vars
    $post = get_post( $post_id );
    
    $title = wp_strip_all_tags(get_the_title($post->ID));
    
    $to			= "perroquet666@hotmail.com";
    $subject	= "Form submission successful";
    $message	= "Your message here";
    
    $headers = array(
    	'Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8',
    	#'Bcc:' . 'perroquet666@hotmail.com',
    	'From: '.get_option( 'blogname' ).' <admin@pecheperle.be>'
    );
    
    // send email
    wp_mail($to, $subject, $body, $headers );
    }
    
    
  • Does your WP site send emails ok?

    Maybe try this smtp plugin to check the site sends emails

    Is the form on a custom post page for recette? If not, remove the first conditional

  • thanks for the help
    Does your WP site send emails ok? yes

    Is the form on a custom post page for the recipe? Yes

    here is the form code

    <?php /*Template Name: User Submit*/;?>
    <?php acf_form_head(); ?>
    <?php get_header(); ?>
    
    	<div id="container" >
    
        <div class="row">
        	<div class="col-sm-12">
    
    			<?php /* The loop */ ?>
    			<?php while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>
    				
    				<h1><?php the_title(); ?></h1>
    				<!-- a supprimer si on enlève l'éditeur par défaut -->
    				<?php the_content(); ?>
    				<!------------>
    				<p> <?php the_field('Ingredients'); ?></p>
    				<p> <?php the_field('Preparation'); ?></p>
    				<p> <?php the_field('Cuisson'); ?></p>
    				<p> <?php the_field('Temps'); ?></p>
    				<p> <?php the_field('Difficulté'); ?></p>
    			<!-- 	<p> <?php the_field('image'); ?></p>-->
    				<p> <?php the_field('gallery'); ?></p>
    				<?php  $options = array('post_id'		=> 'new',
    		'field_groups' => array(4),
    		'post_title'	=> false,
    		
    	
    			'post_type'		=> 'recette',
    			'post_status'	=> 'draft',
    		
    		//'updated_message'    => 'Merci pour votre participation!Votre recette sera publiée prochainement',
    		'return'		=> home_url('merci'),
    		//'submit_value'	=> 'Postez votre recette'
    		'submit_value'	=> 'Send'
    		);
    				 acf_form($options);?>
    
    			<?php endwhile; ?>
    </div>
    		</div><!-- #content -->
    	</div><!-- #primary -->
    
    <?php get_footer(); ?>
  • Does your form work?

    Looking at the contact form example

    Temporarily change your form code to:

    	acf_form(array(
    		'post_id'		=> 'new_post',
    		'post_title'	=> true,
    		'post_content'	=> true,
    		'new_post'		=> array(
    			'post_type'		=> 'recette',
    			'post_status'	=> 'draft'
    		),
    		'return'		=> home_url('merci'),
    		'submit_value'	=> 'Send'
    	));

    See if that works

  • many thanks for the help
    yes my current form works since the recipes arrive in the recipe post type

    but it still does not work with your model
    So I tried this model but it doesn’t work either
    I am staying with hostinger
    in the function.php file

     
    add_action('acf/save_post', 'my_save_post');
    
    function my_save_post( $post_id ) {
    	
    	// bail early if not a contact_form post
    	if( get_post_type($post_id) !== 'contact_form' ) {
    		
    		return;
    		
    	}
    	
    	
    	// bail early if editing in admin
    	if( is_admin() ) {
    		
    		return;
    		
    	}
    	
    	
    	// vars
    	$post = get_post( $post_id );
    	
    	
    	// get custom fields (field group exists for content_form)
    	$name = get_field('name', $post_id);
    	$email = get_field('email', $post_id);
    	
    	
    	// email data
    	$to = 'perroquet666@hotmail.com';
    	$headers = 'From: ' . $name . ' <' . $email . '>' . "\r\n";
    	$subject = $post->post_title;
    	$body = $post->post_content;
    	
    	
    	// send email
    	wp_mail($to, $subject, $body, $headers );
    	
    } 

    and in a contact page

     <?php /*Template Name: pagecontactt*/;
    
    acf_form_head();
    
    get_header();
    
    ?>
    <div id="content">
    	
    	<?php
    	
    	acf_form(array(
    		'post_id'		=> 'new_post',
    		'post_title'	=> true,
    		'post_content'	=> true,
    		'new_post'		=> array(
    			'post_type'		=> 'contact_form',
    			'post_status'	=> 'publish'
    		),
    		'return'		=> home_url('merci'),
    		'submit_value'	=> 'Send'
    	));
    	
    	?>
    	
    </div>
    
    <?php get_footer(); ?> 
  • the server’s mail function works, because I have a contact form on another site in php and I do receive an email after sending

  • The code above has the wrong post_type

    It’s also taken from the example, like I sent you earlier but I’d adjusted it to your custom post.

    Do you have any plugins blocking emails?

    I know the code used works as it’s the same as I use on my sites.

    What if you switch to a default theme and add the code, does it work?

    Can you hardcode the values in this line:
    $headers = 'From: ' . $name . ' <' . $email . '>' . "\r\n";
    I have a feeling you can’t access custom fields at this stage, I think you have to access the info via the field key

  • I just corrected the post_type and I gave recipe
    I wanted to do a simple test with just sending a simple form …

    No I have no plugin that blocks emails since from my hostinger mailbox I made a diversion on my Hotmail box
    And I do receive emails on my Hotmail …

    Yes I’m convinced the code works, but it’s probably just a little detail

    I will try again on a new basic theme
    But that doesn’t work either

    I will create a new subdomain and try with no plugin and I will get back to you

    Thank you again for all

  • Here I just created a new subdomain I used the basic template
    I have deactivated all the templates
    I just installed ACF and CPT

    I took the example of the site with just a contact form and it still does not work …

    it’s still weird

  • That’s very odd!

    Perhaps contact your host and see if they can see anything.

    You definitely have nothing in the error logs?

  • yes that’s what I will do. but now I have another problem with my form, I am posting a new message. Thank you again for all your help
