Support » Plugin: HTML Contact Form » Truly useful Forms Plugin

  • Simple but very effective. As mentioned by others, other Forms plugins are either too restrictive or they try to reinvent the wheel. This plugin is great for simple forms but I needed something that gave me complete control of hundreds of radio buttons plus contact data AND allowed me to run a little javascript to make the form useful. This easily did that. Thank you!

    After a little digging online, I edited the HTML_CF_front_end.php to jump to a new page instead of just a Thank you reply.

    I replaced:

    echo '<div class="ThanksMsg">';
    echo "<p>Thanks for writing us!, We'll get back to you soon..</p>";
    echo '</div>';

    With this:

    $URL="http://yourwebsite.com/";
    echo '<META HTTP-EQUIV="refresh" content="0;URL=' . $URL . '">';
    echo "<script type='text/javascript'>document.location.href='{$URL}';</script>";

    I tried a header() script, of which there are many versions online, but it always returned errors.
