  1. Hello, Thanks for the wonderful contact form. How can we replace the WordPress from with the one that sends the email? Thus we can receive the data of the customer who writes to us.

    1. There is no possibility to configure email settings or email template. The email of the recipient is the one from Settings > General. The email of the sender is added to Reply to: automatically so when you reply to the message the email of the visitor is used to send the email to. We have the request to provide more options to add cust recipients, edit email template, etc. We will update the commend when we have any news.

  2. Hi,
    works nice but configuring the “To:” address seems necessary to me. At least a hint vor devs how to hook to change this would be nice.

    1. Hi Fanky, At the moment the email of the sender is added as “To:” automatically. We have this feature on our to-do list to offer more configurations for the Contact Form block. Thank you

      1. Hi, so I’m back with the workeround.
        Btw. I was talking about the “To” field, which is defaulted to get_option( ‘admin_email’ ) on line 232 in plugins/getwid/includes/blocks/contact-form.php
        If you don’t want to change the plugin code and make it un-updatable, unhook and hook your own copy of the two functions from this file. This can be put in functions.php :

        remove_action( ‘wp_ajax_getwid_send_mail’, ‘send’);
        add_action( ‘wp_ajax_getwid_send_mail’, ‘tha_send’);

        function tha_send() {

        check_ajax_referer( ‘getwid_nonce_contact_form’, ‘security’ );

        if ( !isset( $_POST[‘data’][‘g-recaptcha-response’] ) ) {
        $this->send_mail( $_POST[‘data’] );
        } else {
        $recaptcha_challenge = sanitize_text_field( wp_unslash( $_POST[‘data’][‘g-recaptcha-response’] ) );
        $recaptcha_secret_key = get_option(‘getwid_recaptcha_v2_secret_key’);

        $request = wp_remote_get(
        ‘’ . $recaptcha_secret_key . ‘&response=’ . $recaptcha_challenge,
        array( ‘timeout’ => 15 )

        $response = json_decode( wp_remote_retrieve_body( $request ), false );

        $errors = ”;
        if ( ! $response->{ ‘success’ } ) {
        foreach ( $response->{ ‘error-codes’ } as $index => $value ) {
        $errors .= $this->get_error( $value );
        wp_send_json_error( $errors );
        } else {
        tha_send_mail( $_POST[‘data’] );

        function tha_send_mail( $data ) {

        $to = “YOUR——EMAIL——–HERE—[email protected]”;

        $subject = sprintf(
        //translators: %s is a blogname
        __( ‘This e-mail was sent from a contact form on %s’, ‘getwid’ ),
        get_option( ‘blogname’ )

        if ( ! empty( $data[‘subject’] ) ) {
        $subject = sanitize_text_field( wp_unslash( $data[ ‘subject’ ] ) );

        $email = sanitize_email( wp_unslash( $data[ ’email’ ] ) );
        $name = sanitize_text_field( wp_unslash( $data[ ‘name’ ] ) );
        $message = sanitize_textarea_field( wp_unslash( $data[ ‘message’ ] ) );
        $body = $message;

        if ( $email ) {
        $headers = array( ‘Reply-To: ‘ . $name . ‘ ‘ );

        $response = getwid()->mailer()->send( $to, $subject, $body, $headers );

        if ( $response ) {
        __( ‘Thank you for your message. It has been sent.’,
        ) );

        __(‘There was an error trying to send your message. Please try again later.’, ‘getwid’)

  3. Hello, Thanks for the wonderful contact form.
    However an option to ask the sender’s mobile number can be very useful in today’s world.
