How To Redirect to Another URL After Submissions – Contact Form 7 WordPress Plugin

New messageContact form 7 is one of the best contact form generator plugin available for WordPress today. It is created by takayukister and the best thing is, the plugin is free for everyone who is building their site in the WordPress platform.

Sometimes, you may need to redirect users after filling up and submitting the form to achieve superb user experience on your site i.e.: Free audio, free ebook, free download etc.

To achieve this you just simply add a short Javascript hook on your form. On your form setting page, find the Additional Setting field at the bottom of the contact form management page. Simply insert the following line into it:

//Obviously, you need to change to your desired URL.

on_sent_ok: "location = ''"


Thats it and you are good to go.

If it doesn’t work, check if Ajax is properly working on your webite. It is a javascript hook, so it needs JavaScript to work. You will need another hack if you want to redirect it to a non Javascript environment webpage.
