Support » Fixing WordPress » need a confirmation text to appear on email submission

  • Resolved southcast


    I have somehow put together a code which allows the users to send me a list of selected posts via e-mail and it is working fine.

    Now, I would like a confirmation text eg. ‘THANK YOU’ appear to the user, once user has clicked the “send email” button. This could appear below the submit button and could have a class so that I could make it a bit pretty using css. I hope this can be achieved with appropriate changes in my codes. Please suggest a correction.

    My javascript looks like this :

             type: 'POST',
             url: '',
             data: { content: $('#email-data').html()}

    and my HTML looks like this :

    <div id="email-data">
        <div id="content">
            some php generated content
    <a id="sendEmail"> SEND EMAIL</a>

    my email.php looks like this

      $to = "";
      $subject = "FROM WEBSITE";
      $message = $_POST['content'];
      $headers = "From: company <>" . "\r\n" .
                 "Content-type: text/html" . "\r\n";
      mail($to, $subject, $message, $headers);

    Please let me know if I am not clear enough.

    Solved it. Will leave a response here in case it could help someone. It just needed a little tweak. Now my JS looks like this.

    <script type="text/javascript">
    jQuery(document).ready(function($) {
                     type: 'POST',
                     url: 'http://xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx/email.php',
                     data: { content: $('#email-data').html()},
                     success:function(data) {
                            alert('You data has been successfully e-mailed');
