Support » Plugin: Contact Form 7 » Running PHP code on success, passing variables

  • Here’s how I want things to work:

    1. User submits form successfully.
    2. User’s name and email get added to mailing list, if they have ticked a box.

    I have looked into the CF7 Database plug-in, but that only saves to the WordPress database, and I need the values saved to another database which already runs our newsletter. So I need to run some PHP code when CF7 successfully sends the email. As far as I can tell there’s no way to attach the code to the form itself, so the only way would be to redirect to a page that does this…but then I would have to pass the form variables onto the “thank you” script that adds them to the database.

    So I guess there could be three solutions to this issue:

    • A plug-in that takes CF7 input and saves selected fields to a database and table that the admin selects, or
    • a way to set form-specific PHP to be executed upon a successful send, or
    • a way to pass on CF7 form values to a page being redirected to, so that it can perform the same thing.

    I appreciate any help!

  • Hi; upon checked add to mailing list and on submit you can grab the form fields and INSERT to DB using ajax. Simple!
