The current release is a Security Release and users are advised to upgrade immediately.
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, these aliases are defined in the administrator section, each with their own set of options.
J!3 version now includes support for multilingual sites and unlimited optional fields!
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, detail;s can optionally be pre-filled.
Captcha security is included with a choice between reCaptcha and captchas.net.
Latest J!2.5 version: ALFContact v2.0.8
Latest J!3.0 version: ALFContact v3.1.4
ALFContact supports around 25 languages at the moment and the number is growing, check the website for the latest information.
Everything worked out of the box, I only changed the "To:" string to "Category:" from the ini file.
Cons: I don't get any error handling, I would expect something like "Please enter your email address", enter subject, etc.
You need a little polishing I think.
Thank you for your development time!
A few things to note:
1. you can add an extra field for each contact you create - making it very useful to specify something like an invoice number for your billing contact.
2. you can include a prefix for each contact - meaning that you can send emails to the same address but visually identify in the subject line as to which option was selected.
3. contacts can be displayed for either registered or guests.
But is there anyway where you contact "one person" but it goes to two email accounts? For right now you can only email one person at one email account but need all email sent from the site to go to my email and my brothers email. Is there a way?
Up to 2 should be no problem, just seperate email addresses by a semicolon(;), full support for multiple recipients is in the making.
This feature is high on the 'todo' list....
Cracking little extension, great support. Cheers!
Its a perfect contact us solution, easy to use and very nice layout. It looks anytime better than Joomla default contact form. It works great with Bigo Captcha. No hassles in installation and configuration. All very smooth. Thank you.
