Kind of feel silly having to ask this but I cannot for the life of me get a success message to display after the redirect when the Contact Form submits.

I just am not sure how to call it in the template view.

I have tried various things like this:

{% set success = craft.config.get('successFlashMessage', 'contactform') %}

{% if success %}
  <div class="resp"><h3>{{ success }}</h3></div>
{% endif %}

But just cannot seem to grab it.

I did look at the documentation on Github and was not able to find it.

    Is there a particular reason you want to use flash and not a redirect hidden input? github.com/pixelandtonic/ContactForm#redirecting-after-submit

  • No, I just cannot get it to display a message either way, I would like it to stay on the same page but it does not absolutely have to. Commented Feb 3, 2016 at 23:01
  • So you're saying even if you add a <input type="hidden" name="redirect" value="success">, you don't get redirected to /success?

  • The redirect works fine, but there is no message, sorry if it is unclear what I was asking, I am trying to figure out how to display a "your message has been sent" type message on the screen when the message has been successfully sent. Commented Feb 4, 2016 at 0:32
  • Ahh, if you're redirecting to a "success" template, then you can just hard code the "your message has been sent" message into the template. If there was a problem sending the email, the user is going to get an error page (either one supplied by you or a default Craft one)

You can see in the code for the plugin on GitHub that it sets a 'notice':


As the official documentation mentions, this can later be grabbed with the following code:

{% set message = craft.session.getFlash('notice') %}

Then used as a normal message thereafter.

{{ message }}
