    Hi,

    Is it possible to have an email automatically sent out to whoever filled out the form? (Containing the information they entered).

    I would also love this feature. Any suggestions on a workaround until it's integrated into the widget?

    Hi,

    I meant to reply back and update my thread.

    I found out that you can do this. In your mail form you have Mail, and Mail2. Now I use Mail to send an email to the admin with the form content, but you can also enable Mail2 to send another email to the person who submitted the form.

    So, enable Mail2, in the To field, enter [email], or whatever placeholder name you called your email field you're using to capture the persons email address. Then to the right of that you have the Message Body, where you can enter a thanks message or whatever email content you would like to send to the user as an automated reply!

    Hope this helps, if you have any more questions about this I can try and help on that.

    EDIT: I also found a great plugin that stores all the data from a form that's been filled out - Contact Form to DB Extension

    nick2009,

    Is your suggestion above for a different plugin? I can't find Mail and Mail2 in custom conatct forms nor the "Message Body"?

    Hope to hear a reply soon

    Thanks,
    Mark

    Hi Mark,

    Have you got the latest version of the plugin? This functionality is in the main contact form plugin.

    When you edit a form you should see this page: http://oi50.tinypic.com/dc3oro.jpg

    I believe Mail is expanded by default, but not Mail2.

    Let me know if you find the option.

    Nick,

    You are referring to a totally different plugin. This forum is using:

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/custom-contact-forms/

    But you are referring to contact form 7, which is fine, you were merely suggesting.

    I hope this is clear?

    Thanks,
    Mark

    Ah yes - Sorry, when I was originally testing out contact form plugins months ago I wanted this option, and finally found it in Contact Form 7. So Contact Form 7 supports auto replies.

    Sorry for the confusion!

    It is true, but not automatic confirmation!
