Form and reply to visitor

I’m looking to make a form that sends a generic email to the person who filled in the form, as well as sends the data to me.

Anyone know how?

Thx
Tony

Tim Plumb’s Feedback Form Action is what you want, if you’re doing a
basic contact us form. I think it can do other fields besides the
usual contact form stuff, too.

I am using PHP feedback form from Tim, however, it won’t allow for an email to be sent to the person who filled it in.

IE: A person visits my site. They fill in the form. An email is sent saying something like “Thanks for contacting…”, this email is sent to the person who filled in the form.

Sorry, I thought it did that already. Tim could probably add that to
the Action if he had the time, it’s not hard to do.

mail($to,$subject,$body,'From: you@youraddress','-fyou@youraddress');

He’d need to add a field or popup to the Action interface where you
could enter your form letter, and then the rest gets piped in by PHP
from a successful form submission.

The easiForm action can also do this if yoy select advanced in the
user settings.

See:
http://www.easibase.com/freeway/freeway_form.php

for a tutorial on the basic set up.

Thanks for this Walter. I’ve created a rough draft action for Tony to play with and if all goes well I’ll clean things up and get this version online soon.
Thanks,
Tim.

Tim,

I emailed you but figured I’d post here in case you’re on here…

I can’t seem to get the action to work anymore.

It won’t go to the success page, nor will it send me the data.
I didn’t change anything from the previous PHP form action.

Thanks > Tony

Dear Tim, Walter,
I have downloaded the latest version (Febr. 2009) of the Feedback Form, hoping that this option (Tony was talking about) would be included.
Would that still be possible to update the action with a reply to the sender?

Thanks!

Dear Tim and Walter,
Have we figured out yet how to go about this?

Thanks!

I can’t speak for Tim, but I haven’t looked at the problem at all
since you asked. Tim is in the process of transitioning jobs and
countries, if you don’t hear from him in the near future, that’s
possibly why. He’s normally very responsive.

OK… thanks Walter. I hope he has a solution to this. My client keeps on asking me about this. I am a bit caught in the middle…

Sorry to jump in late on this one. As Walter says I’m just about to
move back to the UK at the end of this week and expect to go quiet for
a few days (at least) while I crack the whip and get boxes packed and
children on planes (hopefully both on the same one).
I took a brief look at the action just now and I’d like to spend some
time with this new functionality next week as it has an impact on the
missing sender address feature. I suspect the two can be rolled into a
single option where if the sender’s email address is missing the PHP
uses a pre-defined address supplied in the action. We can use this
same address as the sender for the ‘Thanks for your email’ notification.
If you need the functionality urgently then I’d suggest getting as far
as you can with the action as it is and then manually adding the new
mail block in the -go.php file yourself.
Regards,
Tim.

Hi Tim!
I can relate to your ‘move & boxes’. I had to move 3x this year and also a move from Holland to the Philippines… So, I appreciate your effort to dive nto this!
No problem… I’ll wait untill next week. I’ll just tell the client to be patient. Me, dealing with PHP scripts myself is a bit risky. All I know is ‘copy & paste’ into scripts :slight_smile:

Thanks again, looking forward to your adjustments in the action!

Just wonder Tim. Any progress with the action? Had any available time? I feel burdened to ask you considering your busy schedule…
Thanks!

Hi Paul,
Today is my first real day back at the computer after the move and the
inevitable broadband, computer etc setup routine. I’ve not had a
chance to look at the action in any detail yet but hope to get to this
on Friday this week. If I understand your request correctly you want
to send the sender a return receipt email as a confirmation of you
getting their message? I assume that thi return email will have it’s
own message body or do you just want to echo the values they entered
into the form?
Regards,
Tim.

Tim,

Since I’m the one who started this thread I’ll chime in also…

I am looking for what you just said, a return email with a standard reply in the body.

Thanks > Tony

Hi Tim!
Thanks for the quick reply and welcome back to the UK.
Yes, indeed, a confirmation message to the sender witha customized reply. It would be a big improvement to the action since many customers want to give that service. Even if you turn it into a premium action … no problem… :slight_smile:

I swear by MachForm. Easy to setup, and easy to create forms. Uses Ajax, and if your pages are PHP, you just drop some code and you’re all set.

Hi Bryan!

First time I hear about it. Interesting…
But in my case I have forms set up and online. Actually no intention to start building again since the forms are quite complicated.

But thanks again.
