And we have footer.php file to use the jquery ajax to get values. You can also use the jquery in the another js file. I am using in the footer.php file


In the above code the values are retrieve from the id of the each text boxes. and you will see the send_email action: 'send_email'is our function name which will we use in the function.php file to send an email using the above retrieved values. Functions.php

add_action( 'wp_ajax_send_email', 'callback_send_email' );
add_action( 'wp_ajax_nopriv_send_email', 'callback_send_email' );

function callback_send_email(){

	  $name = $_REQUEST['name'];
	  $email = $_REQUEST['email'];
          $message= $_REQUEST['message'];
          $subject = "Contact Form";
	  $email_body = "The following prospectus has contacted you.
". "Name: $name.
". "Email: $email.
". "Message: $message.
"; $to = "example@email.com"; $headers = "MIME-Version: 1.0" . "\r\n"; $headers .= "Content-type:text/html;charset=UTF-8" . "\r\n"; $headers .= "From: $name <$email> \r\n"; $headers .= "Reply-To: $email \r\n"; $mail = mail($to,$subject,$email_body,$headers); if($mail){ echo "Email Sent Successfully"; } }
By using above code. you will successfully send an email. change your email id with $to = "example@email.com"; your email id. That's it..
