I'm trying to get the Magento 2 Contact form to redirect not to /contact/index but someplace else. Here is what I have so far:

We use a custom theme, in which I have created a the following folders

Magento_Contact -email -submitted_form.html -templates - form.phtml

I've edited the form.phtml to add / edit the fields as required.

I've created a content block and added the form to it with:

{{block class="Magento\Contact\Block\ContactForm" name="contactForm" template="Magento_Contact::form.phtml"}}

And I've created a CMS Page with this block in it, using

{{block class="Magento\\Cms\\Block\\Block" block_id="myContact"}}

Now I want to the user to stay on that CMS Page after submitting the form, so I presume I will need to change $this->_redirect('contact/index'); to $this->_redirect('*/*/'); in the modules post controller.

I was wondering if there wasn't a quicker way to add the redirect, maybe as a block comment or similar.

Thank you.

  • did you find a solution to this?

  • No, I simply created a cms page under 'contact/index' with a 'Thank you and success message' and then redirected the user back to the form page using a very hacky cms block containing a meta refresh ... Now I would use a plugin with an after action, but this is no longer relevant.

Old question but I found this through search. @Design was 90% correct but apparently didn't test their answer.

First copy the Magento_Contact form.phtml to your theme.


Next, append the following script to the new file

    function($) {
            var form = this;
                url: "<?php /* @escapeNotVerified */ echo $block->getFormAction(); ?>",
                method : "POST",
                data: $(form).serialize(),
                success: function(){ 
                    window.location = '/redirect';
                error: function(){ 
                    console.error("Some error occurred, make sure Contact Form is enabled in Magento.");


Change '/redirect' to your desired redirect target. You can also just replace the form with a success message. Here's a simple example of what I needed:

success: function(){ 
    form.outerHTML = "Thank you for contacting us, we will be in touch shortly!";

    Thanks! I tried this one and it's working as clear as the water from my end. Commented May 30, 2018 at 13:28

You can implement Magento 2 after method plugin for execute method of Post controller of Contact module. And create CMS page with 'contact/thanks' URL and redirect to the page in your plugin. But in that case you need custom module to place your plugin.


namespace YourModule\ContactUsRedirect\Plugin;

class PostPlugin
     * @var \Magento\Framework\App\Request\DataPersistorInterface
    private $_dataPersistor;

     * @var \Magento\Framework\App\Response\RedirectInterface
    private $_redirect;

     * PostPlugin constructor.
     * @param \Magento\Framework\App\Request\DataPersistorInterface $dataPersistor
     * @param \Magento\Framework\App\Response\RedirectInterface $redirect
    public function __construct(
        \Magento\Framework\App\Request\DataPersistorInterface $dataPersistor,
        \Magento\Framework\App\Response\RedirectInterface $redirect
    ) {
        $this->_dataPersistor = $dataPersistor;
        $this->_redirect = $redirect;

    public function afterExecute(\Magento\Contact\Controller\Index\Post $subject, $result)
        $post = $subject->getRequest()->getPostValue();

        if (!$post) {

        if (!$this->_dataPersistor->get('contact_us')) {
            $this->_redirect->redirect($subject->getResponse(), 'contact/thanks');

I solved it by creating a permanent redirect in Marketing -> URL Rewrites from contact/index to my custom URL. It works and even shows the successful message.


Make the form asynchronous and ignore the default action: (example in JQuery because it's bundled with M2.)


    url:"<?php /* @escapeNotVerified */ echo $block->getFormAction(); ?>",
    data: $(this).serialize(),
    success: function(){ // it worked },
    error: function(){ // didn't work, why didn't he test his example before posting on SO?? }
