How to use the contact_form_message hook in Jetpack

The Jetpack Contact Form gives us a hook to filter what gets sent via email after a successful form submission but the documentation is not very helpful as it doesn’t provide an example. To top that the Comments are closed for the article. For details refer to the Jetpack Contact Form Message Hook page.

Copy the code below into a child theme’s functions.php file or a functionality plugin to append the value of $new_text to the end of the email.

Please change the value of $new_text to whatever you like.

Use Cases: You could use this hook to create a link to internal documentation or company policy.

Note: You need to check the email of the WordPress administrator, not the person sending the email, to notice the change.

function dd_change_successful_contact_form_submission_email_message($text){
$new_text = '<p>Text to add after email message. <a href="" target="_blank">Visit!</a></p>';
$text = $text . $new_text;
return $text;
add_filter ('contact_form_message', 'dd_change_successful_contact_form_submission_email_message');

Is the Mother of Our Lord the Last Eve?

The mother of our Lord is not the last Eve since our Lord is the last Adam read 1 Corinthians 15:45. For the mother of our Lord to be the last Eve, the first Adam should have been the son of the first Eve and not his spouse.  Another way Our Lord’s mother could or would be the last Eve is if her husband Joseph was the last Adam.
