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.
ALFcontact is a perfect contact form for most websites. The ability to send contacts to different e-mail address is terrific. I didn't want to incorporate different forms for every department.
Suggestion: I hope you plan on offering more additional fields including checkboxes, radio buttons, pull down menus, etc. in the future.
- a way to specify different default recipients for forms on different parts of the site.
- the translations work nicely, except for the form title, and the default message text. Could you make your form Joomfish compatible?
unfortunately because our site is multilingual, and rather complicated, I probably won't be able to use your component, even though I love it.
Alf - you are to be congratulated and thanked, very much. You really hit the nail on this one. Cheers!
I need to place the same form in different page's side menu. Its better to have a module to work like exactly what we have now, so that we can place it easily in each page as a module
If, however, all your looking for is a simple yet effective way of letting your site visitors contact you, or various departments/sections of your company/organization/group, then this is the perfect one for you. I would consider this the next step up from the form included originally with Joomla.
Absolutely no complaints from a happy user.
I will use it when I can add my own text above the form and choose where the thank you page goes to.
One last suggestion is to hide the actual email addresses when choosing "view source" in the browser.
I do get installation errors due to missing languages, but it still works.
I would suggest some features:
1.) ability to set a default subject line.
2.) ability to set a re-direct page after form is submitted.
Besides all that, this is easy and straight forward. Just how I like it.
Good Job! :)
I'm working on both options, pls contact me about the errors and I'll see about those too.
This component is ready for Joomla 1.5 and works like a charm without the legacy plugin activated.
Only nice thing would be to set a default selected item in the dropdown list
I'll certainly have a look at your suggestion, keep 'm coming..
