I’m trying to add a CF Worker to my Contact page. I want to allow visitors to send me messages with this service: https://blog.cloudflare.com/sending-email-from-workers-with-mailchannels/. In the article, they make it look straightforward: “The only thing you need to do is copy and paste the following code snippet in your /functions/_middleware.ts file.” It didn’t work on my first attempt. My question is on Hugo, would I create and put it in that file? Or should I put that code somewhere else? Thanks for the help and advice!
It’s not Hugo-specific. Cloudflare will “look for”
/functions/_middleware.ts in your repo’s top level. There are several such references within Cloudflare documentation.
Did you read through the whole post and add the required form parameter to your form or were you swerved by the “the only thing you need to do”?
The name can be anything, but
data-static-form-name needs to be present for this to work. I also wonder if there might be some setup regarding an account at Mailchannels required? Maybe not, but I would expect it.
You could either post your FULL sample contact form here, or try using the Cloudflare Community Discourse to solve the issue. I am pretty sure I would try “over there” first, because of the Cloudflare specifity.

Yes, this is clearly something that you’ll need to run by either the Cloudflare Discourse or the appropriate channel on the Cloudflare Discord; I’ve had good luck with both, but you’ll likely get faster help with the latter.
Sure thing. Thanks for the help.
Putting the plugin name into google this came up:
There is definitely more work to be done before it works. The current error you are getting is because you need to run the
npm install command (first code piece on the plugin link).
