Just playing around with yii2, wondering where the admin email account is set to receive the emails created when the contact form is submitted.
I did a search for ‘example.com’ in the codebase and changed several places to go to my email account, but when I submit the form I am not seeing any emails.
it was available under params.php inside config directory
Thanks for the response.
I had changed it there. So might be another reason it is not working (It is on external hosting with a mail server etc).
I will keep looking and post my findings.
Check email component config. I may be in useFileTransport = true mode so instead of actually sending emails it just writes to files.
Thanks for the reply.
That would appear to be the case. I am fairly new to using composor and obviously yii2. My local environment was different to my initialized environment online.
I saw the clear instructions of why it wouldn’t have sent after following your instructions.
But i wasn’t seeing that text when I submitted the form.
Among other things I had forgotten that I had created an instance of a basic and advanced app, and then got confused :s
Given I was on the Contact Us page under frontend, the specific place I had to change the admin email was under:
frontend >> config >> params.php
