I am trying to find a way to send emails sent by the contact form to multiple email addresses but all the solutions I found involve the edit of the core files and I would like to avoid it. I think that the best way would to extend the contact form but I have no idea on how to do that. Anyone has a clue on how to do that?
If you check the
IndexController.php in the
Contacts module, you'll see a
->sendTransactional line in the
The 3rd parameter (
Mage::getStoreConfig(self::XML_PATH_EMAIL_RECIPIENT)) can be an array of email addresses.
So the only thing you need to do is extend the controller (how to do this can be found here for example: http://www.magentocommerce.com/wiki/5_-_modules_and_development/0_-_module_development_in_magento/how_to_overload_a_controller
And then add multiple email address to your sendTransactional code:
$mailTemplate->setDesignConfig(array('area' => 'frontend')) ->setReplyTo($post['email']) ->sendTransactional( Mage::getStoreConfig(self::XML_PATH_EMAIL_TEMPLATE), Mage::getStoreConfig(self::XML_PATH_EMAIL_SENDER), array('email@example.com','firstname.lastname@example.org'), null, array('data' => $postObject) );
For remove validation from contact email option Please follow that tips
- Go here /app/code/core/Mage/Contacts/etc/system.xml
- find ,here section you will get validate tag and remove validate-email from validate tag.
You will be happy doing this because i have done same task using that.
