ALFContact Component

ALFcontact is a small 'Contact Us' form.

The purpose of ALFcontact is to provide a contactform with enough features to make it usefull and appealing whithout making it overly complicated.
Basically the form gives you the option to send messages to different aliases based on your accesslevel and/or language (J3 Only), these aliases are defined in the administrator section, each with their own set of options.

E.g. create aliases for Sales or Billing or Webmaster, add a prefix, custom optional field(s), default subject and/or redirect as you like and you're set.
If the user isn't logged in it will show inputboxes for adding reply info, once they're logged in, details can optionally be pre-filled.

Captcha security is included with a choice between reCaptcha and

Latest J!2.5 version: ALFContact v2.0.8
Latest J!3.* version: ALFContact v3.1.8

ALFContact supports around 33 languages at the moment and the number is growing, check the website for the latest information.

I installed and set up the extension in no time. Totally intuitive.

Mine is a multi-language site (Spanish / English) and the language switching works perfectly... except for two details:

(1) The Custom Message in Redirect tab is global, and I think it should be an option for the Menu Item, attached to the language, so a different "Thank you" page can appear depending on the language.

(2) The Captcha language selection should also be an option of the Menu Item, instead of global, so the right language help text appears when clicking on the Captcha help icon, depending on the language of the page.

Lost for words. I am an IT entrepreneur and part-time web developer. As such, I have not and do not wish to invest time and money in starting a web dev company but at the same time would very much appreciate if the few awesome sites I make can bring in the odd client who admired my work. So how would I achieve this? I hate, simply hate and loath devs who force visible footers that compromise site security and appeal even if their service is free, it just not the way to go. So as a part-time dev, I would never want to leave a footer myself so the best course of action is to create a contact form where the site user can choose whether to contact support, sales, etc as well as web developer. Brilliant isn't it. So now, I can get an email should someone visit a site I made and wish the same.

I don't usually write reviews on extensions. But, I feel this one really warranted some praise.

This extension is super easy to configure. Had it set up and working within minutes. Using it with modalizer for a very nice lightbox contact form.

Thanks to the developer for offering this and for free. If you are looking for a simple contact form that works flawlessly then look no further!

Unlike other contact forms, this doesn't take hours to configure.

It is simple but sophisticated in its functionality:

* Easy integration with Captcha;
* Painless addition of extra fields;
* Custom header and footer fields
* Customisable response page.

If only the core Joomla contact form was as good as this. In fact it has all the functionality the core module has but does it effortlessly and without having to use language and template overrides.

This is a joy to use.

If you need a simple contact form, this is the best choice you can work with.

I've applied this component on several sites and have worked very well. My favorite option is the choice to deliver what kind of subject you can set so it can be as flexible as possible to deliver certain kind of messages.

The small con y see on this extension is the limitation it has of adding 2 extra fields and not customize them for each language is implemented, thing than i have cheatd with a small trick on template override.

The componet is really easy o use but if you need to build something with more than 2 extra fields on the form you became limited on the form.

The contact form does exactly what I would expect. I can manage multiple contacts, get captcha and custom form.

Support, due to css problem in my template, was swift and helpfull and I lernead great deal as a novice in the joomla world.

The form is up and running, performing the tasks, I thought after looking at the demo, it should be performing.

The author's goal was to make a simple contact form that was easy to implement and customize and that's exactly what ALFContact is. I had a couple of issues with my own installation and the author and I emailed back and forth for the better part of a Saturday morning to get it resolved. Friendly, responsive service when it's needed!

100% Happy with this extension, Simple to install and setup. Can't wait for the future wish list to be completed (Module option and Attatchments).

Headers and Footer texts can be added, I use Articles Anywhere and place the tags in there. Additional fields, this has the lot. A+++++
