I inherited aiContactSafe when I came on a company as Webmaster. I absolutely love it! The only negative so far is it doesn't seem to be compatible with v3.3. Is there a roadmap to support the Joomla upgrade? If not, I might have to look into something else. Either way, this is a fantastic ext. Would recommend.

This contact form adds a link to their site on your contact information with no explanation, confusing users. unusable.
Owner's reply

That is a parameter of the profile, placed there as a demo, and you suppose to change it with your own.
Confusing is the fact that instead of looking into the parameters, checking the instructions or searching the forum you chose to post a review here, complaining about something that most free extension have and aiContactSafe doesn't : a link back to our site.

Very simple but reliable versatile accessory. I am looking forward to show the new version!
It helps a lot in everyday life.
Congratulations, keep it up.

This is just the best form extension there is at the moment, and trust me, I tried quite a few. It is simple to set up/manage and allows for some fairly extensive customization.
Only problem is that, at the moment, it does not work on joomla 3.x, although that is being worked on.

Thanks for this great free extension.

Incredible capacity of this extension, it's possible to do everything! from design to fields calculation, formatting templates as we want, everything that until now I only could do with iFrames and php code, now I do all integrated with this extension. Thank You! Soon will do my donation for great your work.

It took me a bit to realize the the "Profiles" are the Forms (rather unconventional name I think). But after that this component worked immediately. Easy to use and has so many option. Great work.

To address rating issue raised by a small minority of reviewers, and those who may not have used many other contact managers, the reason AIContactSafe gets five stars and ought to get more is that it has many times more useful features than the others, including the commercial ones. That's exceptional among Joomla extensions.

Along with AcyMailing, JCK Editor, Akeeba Backup, RokSprocket/RokGallery, EasyBlog and SobiPro, it's a core extension that gets installed with every Joomla site. Alas, with J3.X, there is NOTHING equivalent to replace it.

Some examples:
- Contact info distinct from header and layout
- Module and component nicely managed as distinct entities
- Pre-configured and PHP/CSS capabilities optimized for ease of use and flexibility for extension
- Has most of the features of a full forms editor in addition to simple contact info, which NONE of the other free competitors have, neither the commercial ones.
- Excellent back-end management of contact submissions
- Extended fields

Great extension works well & very configurable, my only complaint is it will not allow PDF's to be uploaded, maybe I have overlooked a setting.

If you want an easy to use versatile contact form this is it! I have purchased and used other form extensions but keep coming back to this one. The documentation is clear and easy so you don't have to spend hours trying to find out why something isn't working right. About the only thing it doesn't have which other form makers might is e-commerce options but I've put together some fairly comprehensive forms with this extension. It also has decent spam control. It's not perfect but I've never found an extension that is and the best part, it's free! Though I did make a small donation after I realised how often I use this extension on sites!

Just switched from another form that caused me problems and this one beats it hands down! Very, very easy to use and has all the qualities and functions for a straight forward form.

This is a great alternative to the native contact form. Wish it was available for J3.

I've been using a number of contact form components in the past years, but this one is way ahead. It requires some time to set it up, and get it aligned with your design, but it has lots of possibilities.

Really hope there will be a J! 3.x version!

To be fair, this is the first contact extension I m looking for, so I compare this only to Joomla's native contact form. I don't understand why so many people rated it with 5 stars since this form, although it is very good, is lucking some features such as a nicer look on Captcha system and a possibility to translate the captcha messages:
"Please enter the following security code:"
"Not Readable? Change text".
The tutorial is missing info about how to use the Multiple Captcha Engine plugin.

All in all, I believe this is a good extension with many choices, but it is still not perfect to receive 5 stars.

Shame that i found this extension so late... aiContactSafe is very powerfull component and i just cant believe it is still free! Hats off! The best contact form component ever!

Great, easy to customize and love the fact that you made the css available from the backend. Thanks!

I wasn't certain if this would function as I hoped but the aiContactSafeLink allows the form to be avaialable securely for public use(even within my fairly strict security setup). I think that's important because not everyone wants to "sign up" just to ask a question. Great job here!
