I am using default contact form available in D7 under module section. The problem is that contact form redirects to the homepage. It doesn't show any information about submission, such as "Your message has been sent" etc etc. Instead it redirects to home page immediately.

I don't want the contact form to redirect. It should stay here and should show the submission information/message.

You can use hook_form_alter to hook into the contact form and change the default submit behaviour. So instead of redirecting when the form submits, you can just omit that part and display the status message.

function mymodule_form_alter($form, &$form_state, $form_id ) {
  if ($form_id == 'contact_site_form') {
    // Use our own custom submit function for the contact form.
    $form['#submit'] = array('my_custom_submit');

function my_custom_submit($form, &$form_state) {

  • How about the submission message/notification ? Actually I doubt myself that probably as per my configurations the message is not being displayed. Though I am not sure.

  • Not sure what you mean exactly. Without seeing much code or examples it's really hard to determine what your trying to do. But you can add your custom notification/message using drupal_set_message() in the submit function.

At least you can make sure that a message displays with the help of Rules module.

Creating a rule that will display a message on the site when a contact form it submitted...

It's a start.
