Hello,

Is there a recommended way to create contact forms that can save data in cmsBuilder and send an email with the entry data to a specified email address? A plugin or at least some example code would be great!

Thank you,

Greg

It seems that the Form Generator won't send the Admin an email when a new submission is made. Is this likely to be possible in future versions of the plugin?

Perhaps a form could send a template email from the system or somehow integrate with the Newsletter plugin to send HTML templates with placeholders.

Thanks,

Greg

Hi Greg, 

We'll probably add that in future but don't have a timeline for it now. 

In the meantime what you can do is use the PHP mail function directly: http://php.net/manual/en/function.mail.php

Of if you want to use CMSB functions you can do the following:

  • Add a new Email Template under: CMS Setup > Email Templates 
  • Go to: CMS Setup > Email Templates > Advanced Commands (bottom left) > Developers: Export Templates As PHP

That will generate the code to send a message with CMSB.  Note that this is getting into custom programming so we don't provide a lot of support on it.  But hopefully that's helpful!

Good luck!
