A non wordpress PHP file has this kind of code:
<form class="someclass" action="page-contact.php" method="post">
But when in WordPress it doesn’t work.
suppose we are here(a WordPress page or a post): www.sample.com/somepage/
The above page is using the page-contact.php template.
Then the above when the to submit button of the contact form is triggered takes to:
This generates an error that 404 not found(because that link doesn’t exist). what is the solution so that it(action) works in WordPress?
I tried the solution posted here → How to handle form submission?
- But that solution doesn't work.
- Even if had worked than which theme author will put an action file in wp-admin because the path is shown their belongs to wp-admin →
"<?php echo admin_url('admin-ajax.php'); ?>"
In my case, the admin-ajax.php file will be the same template/page file where the swiftmailer code is there with SMTP settings to send an email.
