I use Guest Entries plugin to add information, and I need to send some message to user who filled the form to email. Can you show me an example of how I can do this?

  • Is this Guest Entries 1 for Craft 2 or Guest Entries 2 for Craft 3? – Brad Bell Aug 13 at 3:32
  • it is Guest Entries 2 for Craft 3 – Alex Ryhluk Aug 13 at 5:58

You could do this with a small plugin that listened to the Guest Entries afterSaveEntry event.

The logic would look something like this:

use craft\guestentries\controllers\SaveController;
use craft\guestentries\events\SaveEvent;
use yii\base\Event;

// ...

Event::on(SaveController::class, SaveController::EVENT_AFTER_SAVE_ENTRY, function(SaveEvent $e) {
    // Grab the entry
    $entry = $e->entry;

    // Assuming `toEmail` is a custom field on the entry.
        ->setSubject('Thanks for your submission!')
        ->setTextBody('You are amazing.')

You can generate Craft 3 boilerplate plugin code using https://pluginfactory.io/ and the official Craft 3 Plugin docs are here: https://docs.craftcms.com/v3/extend/plugin-guide.html
