Contact form - success message in the same page

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

I am completing my bootstrap site and I added a contact form with recaptcha check on that.

 

I have my form in an html page and the php files that check the captcha and send the email.

Everything works fine but I want the confirmation message in the same page of the form instead of a new page.

 

this is the html form

<form id="comment_form" action="master/form.php" method="post">
 
                    <div class="col-md-6 padding-right-zero">
                        <div class="form-group">
                                <input type="text" class="form-control" placeholder="Your Name *" name="name" required data-validation-required-message="Please enter your name.">
                                <p class="help-block text-danger"></p>
                            </div>
                    </div>
                    <div class="col-md-6">
                        <div class="form-group">
                                <input type="email" class="form-control" placeholder="Your Email *" name="email" required data-validation-required-message="Please enter your email address.">
                                <p class="help-block text-danger"></p>
                            </div>
                    </div>
                    <div class="col-md-12">
                        <div class="form-group">
                            <input type="text" class="form-control" placeholder="Subject *" name="subject" required data-validation-required-message="Please enter your subject.">
                            <p class="help-block text-danger"></p>
                        </div>
                    </div>
                    <div class="col-md-12">
                      <div class="form-group">
                            <textarea class="form-control" placeholder="Your Message *" name="message" required data-validation-required-message="Please enter a message."></textarea>
                            <p class="help-block text-danger"></p>
                        </div>
                      <div class="clearfix"></div>
                      <div class="col-lg-12 text-center">
                          <div id="success"></div>
						  <div class="g-recaptcha" data-sitekey="mysitekey"></div>
                          <input type="submit" name="submit" value="Send message">
						  <?php echo $result; ?>	
                      </div>
                    </div>
                </form>

this is my php script:

<?php
        $to="myemail@gmail.com";
        $captcha;$name;$email;$subject;$message;
        if(isset($_POST['name'])){
           $name=$_POST['name'];
         }if(isset($_POST['email'])){
          $email=$_POST['email'];
        }if(isset($_POST['subject'])){
          $subject=$_POST['subject'];
        }if(isset($_POST['message'])){
          $message=$_POST['message'];
        }if(isset($_POST['g-recaptcha-response'])){
          $captcha=$_POST['g-recaptcha-response'];
        }
        if(!$captcha){
          echo '<h2>Please check the the captcha form.</h2>';
          exit;
        }
	$secretKey = "key";
	$ip = $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'];
        $response=file_get_contents("https://www.google.com/recaptcha/api/siteverify?secret=".$secretKey."&response=".$captcha."&remoteip=".$ip);
	$responseKeys = json_decode($response,true);
        if(intval($responseKeys["success"]) !== 1) {
          echo '<h2>You are spammer!</h2>';
        } else {
          
          mail($to, $subject, $message, "From:" . $name);
		  header('index.html');
		  $result='<div class="alert alert-success">Thank You! I will be in touch</div>';
echo "sent";
        }
?>

I tried to use the $result variable but one the email has been sent - I get it and it's fine - the page doesn't redirect to the html form but stays in this php page showing just the small confirmation message.

 

Any help?

You need to restructure your code to use AJAX. Read up on how to submit an AJAX POST request and receive a response to update a div or w/e on the same page.  There are a billion tutorials out there for it.  Come back with specific questions about it if you get stuck.

There is no need for Ajax. Basic form handling is all you need.

<?php
if ($_SERVER['REQUEST_METHOD'] == 'POST'){
    // Send email code
    die('Thank You!');
}
?>
<form method="POST">
<label>Name</label><br >
<input name="Name">
<input type="submit" value="Submit" >
</form>
