    Hello HeppiDeals,

    I am not sure if I have understood your question correctly.

    Do you want to send auto-responder email to all the user when someone posts on your wordpress? Unfortunately, we do not have such feature and it is not related to your form. 

    There are a lot of wordpress plugin available which will help you send email. One of them you can look at it here and see if that helps you.

    If you just want o send submission email from your form to the person who submitted your form, you simply need to add an auto-responder email alert in your form. The following guide should help you:  http://www.jotform.com/help/26-Creating-a-Form-Autoresponder

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you meant to ask something else.

    Thank you!

    Oh gosh, I just find out this http://rsstonewsletter.com can't be used because it is hard coded, it won't update if I have new post.

    Hi Ashwin_d, do you have other solution?

    Technically, that is not possible. There is currently no way in our autoresponder and/or notification email to accept shortcodes and/or PHP queries from your website that would fetch latest post.

    You may consider adding the link to your BLOG page instead so they will just click on it and view the post into your website. 

    Thanks

    OK, now I manage to show my RSS feed in the email via iframe with src from http://heppideals.com/rss2html.php, but it won't shows up when I test submit the form.

    My form: http://form.jotform.me/form/41592411502445

    It did show in Jotform when I setting up the auto-responder email.

    Please help.

    @HeppiDeals 

    FYI, we do not support iframe on emails. They are usually stripped off and most of the email clients are very strict about the HTML codes on emails. <iframe> is strictly off limits as it could expose risk to the user information in the sense that the iframe can be used to track customers IP and possibly other information. Some abusive users embeds form for this illegal activities too such as phishing. That's the reason why most of the email clients does not permit iframe contents.

    Thanks!
