[resolved] PHP Contact Form? Is there a way to allow small amounts of PHP? (3 posts)

    Hi, love your plugin. What I'm wondering is if there would be any way to still use a PHP contact form with it? Basically, the plugin would need to output .php files instead of .html file, and everything would still be static except for a very small portion of the page that I specify for it to use PHP. No database interaction, just a basic php mail() function. I do believe this is possible with some other static site generators, and I'm hoping there is a way to do it with this WordPress plugin as well.

    Hi,
    inside the form-tag from your contact Form you select your destination. For eaxample:
    <form action="destination.php" method="post">

    inside this destination.php you make your mail command and a header("Location:thankyou.html"); request. Thats it :-)

    But your idea has been noticed. At the moment i'm really short on time, this take some time...

    Actually there is a way :

    I've added "manually" outside wordpress a contact.php file (a basic contact form like this one : http://web-kreation.com/all/php-contact-form-script/)

    Then I've checked the "Show expert settings" in the Really Static Admin dashboard page.

    Then on the "Settings" of Really Static there is a list of files to be copied : "Copy all attached files with following extensions to the destination server: [?]"
    => Here I've added ".php" file extension

    Of course you need your wordpress to have a link somewhere to this "contact.php" file or it won't get copied.

    Cheers,
