Magento Notes — Fix for adding contact form in CMS pages

This is a follow-up post on a fix that I had suggested about adding a contact us form through the CMS admin tool here.  What I found out was that the form post back left out the action parameter…when you do a view source.  So essentially the form gets filled out but doesn’t get sent to the site owner.

I found this out on my own web site’s submit a product page.  Below is the fix for this:

Go into: app/design/frontend/default/blue/template/contacts and modify the form.phtml.  On (or around) line# 32, replace:

<form action=”<?php echo $this->getFormAction(); ?>” id=”contactForm” method=”post”>


<form action=”<?php echo Mage::getUrl(); ?>contacts/index/post/” id=”contactForm” method=”post”>

and you should be ready to go.
