I’m using the form smart action, which is great, but I have one small issue.
When receiving a new email, the sender is the WordPress admin email and not the email address inputted in the form itself by the visitor of the website.
This is the typical behavior for most WP forms, and you generally need to customize the settings to tell it to send from a different address or name. In fact, it’s probably a bad idea to change the sender address because of DKIM / email authentication issues since your mailer won’t be authorized to send as the submitter’s domain.
A better option would be to send from a domain that you can authenticate but have the form put the sender’s name in the reply-to field. Pinegrow doesn’t have the ability to change those fields inside the builder, though, so you’d have to use the pg_form_email() WordPress filter.
Hey, I have to ask a quite silly question: Since there is no standard form block for Wordpress in Gutenberg anymore, there is no native form support build in WP anymore, am I right? I need to use a plugin or a script I wrote myself to build a working mail form?
Thanks, @Takuya! I haven’t dug into it yet and I don’t know if any tutorials that do. I’m going to tag @Wolfgang in since I seem to remember that he has some pretty sophisticated form logic they he uses.
