I would like to add a "Contact us" form on each product; I've copied the contact form and added to the cms static block:

{{block type="core/template" form_action="/contacts/index/post/" template="catalog/product/view/form-personalizzazione.phtml"}}

The problem is, how can we change it so it doesn't redirect on contact page but it remains inside the product instead?

Inside phtml it starts with

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

You will have to either rewrite the Contact controller located at app/code/core/Mage/Contacts/controllers/IndexController.php

or alternatively create your own module and controller action, and use that as the form action.

So for example, change the form action to be something like:

{{block type="core/template" form_action="/modulename/index/post/" template="catalog/product/view/form-personalizzazione.phtml"}}

Within your Module controller postAction() method you could then either redirect back to the previous page or get the product from the registry and use it's Mage::registry('current_product')->getUrl() method data.

  • where exactly do I have to change/add Mage::registry('current_product')->getUrl() ? thanks Commented Feb 22, 2017 at 9:01
  • You can return a redirect to the product URL within the postAction() method. Essentially change where the returned redirects are in the normal post action Commented Feb 22, 2017 at 12:11
  • meaning from $this->_redirect('*/*/'); to Mage::registry('current_product')->getUrl(); ? Commented Feb 22, 2017 at 14:54
  • You should be able to do something like $this->_redirectUrl(Mage::registry('current_product')->getUrl()); Commented Feb 22, 2017 at 15:43
  • ok I've edited that, now I've added this block <block type="core/template" name="ProdottiController" form_action="catalog/product/view/form-personalizzazione.phtml" ></block> to catalog.xml and this {{block type="core/template" form_action="/ProdottiController/index/post/" template="catalog/product/view/form-personalizzazione.phtml"}} inside the custom tab but i get a 404 error, I think I made a mistake somewhere...
