CC in contact forms

Monday 20 March 2006 2:04:51 pm - 19 replies

Is there a way to define a cc within the email template /collectedinfomail/form.tpl like:

{set-block scope=root variable=email_receiver}{/set-block}

{set-block scope=root variable=email_cc}{/set-block}

Norman, look in to kernel/content/collectinformation.php you will need to extend this file and add need PHP code which read variable mail_cc and prepare cc $mail->addCc( $email, $name = false );

Thanks Lukasz,

I added the following lines:

            $bccreceiver =& $tpl->variable( 'email_bcc' ); 
            if ( !$mail->validate( $bccreceiver ) )
                $bccreceiver = $ini->variable( "InformationCollectionSettings", "BccEmailReceiver" );
                if ( !$bccreceiver )
                    $bccreceiver = $ini->variable( "MailSettings", "AdminEmail" );
            $mail->addBcc( $bccreceiver, $name = false );

So I may use

{set-block scope=root variable=email_bcc}{/set-block}

within the template



within the site.ini

Maybe you could submit new enhancement? I think some else can need it too, so would be nice to have possibility send cc e-mails from contact us form.

I added a patch against 3.7.4 and 3.6.6 there.
Feel free to use/abuse, comments are welcome.

Yes if you use the patch, you can just use an array like:

{set-block scope=root variable=email_cc_receivers}{$receiversarray}{/set-block}

ok thanks.

I try the patch but doesn't works in ez 3.7.4.

we have a multiemail datatype which gives you this.

would this be of interest? i can put onto pubsvn.

Wednesday 22 March 2006 11:44:45 am

It will be good to have it on snv as this email problem is commojn to many of us.
Thanks Paul.

Ok, i'll try to get this out shortly.

Friday 24 March 2006 11:03:13 am

any news?!

Tuesday 28 March 2006 10:05:23 pm

Will this multi-email datatype be available in some eZ release soon?

Tuesday 28 March 2006 10:17:12 pm

In my case it works without any problems.

Currentlly I don't know if this will be a feature of future ez versions.

Monday 29 May 2006 4:35:08 pm

I try the patch in ez 3.7.6 and work fine with a Bcc and Ccn email, but if I pass an array does not works.

my code:

{set-block scope=root variable=email_bcc_receivers}{def $array_multireceiver=array('','')}{/set-block}

Where is the problem?

Tuesday 30 May 2006 6:48:53 pm

I had problems sending to emails defined in an array as well.

To send emails to an array of destinators, you need to create the array using the operator {append-block} instead of {set-block}.

See my comment at

hope this helps!

Hi all,

you can add cc or bcc receivers like this way:

{append-block scope=root variable=email_cc_receivers}{/append-block}
{append-block scope=root variable=email_cc_receivers}{/append-block}

You can also use variable=email_bcc_receivers to add bcc receivers.

Hi Mathew, Xavier,

Its been a while hasnt it blunk.gif Emoticon

I need to review this since eZ have made it easier to add in multiple cc's in recent releases. Some of it depends on whether you want the user to enter the info from object level, template level, or tie the new fields through a combination of the two.

So, i will examine what is useful now and get back to you.
