I installed this component and I think that's a great job but...
The module and component don't work well in Chrome and safari. When I try to send a message and I don't write all the required labels and I selected "Use AJAX to submit the form:" in the back-end.
The modules only work with AJAX then this is a great problem.
After a lot of attempts in my site, I thought about create a new joomla installation without another component, plugin or module. I installed the aiContactSafe in this joomla installation.
This last attempt did not work too then I think that there are a programming problem...
The problems are:
Chrome: All the site disappears and only remains the div contentpaneopen with the form component inside. No scripts, no css, nothing else.
Safari: All the items form disappears except captcha and submit buttom.
I have installed the joomla 1.5.24. and the 2.0.16.beta20. The chrome version is 15.0.874.106 and 5.0.5 of safari...

Thank you...

Thank you for your report. You really should consider coming to and ask for a bit of support. This issue is new to Joomla 1.5.24.
We have a temporary fix available in our forum and are working on getting a permanent fix released in our next release.

This is by far the best contact form I have ever tried in Joomla (Including the paid ones I've tried). It's easy to use, you can create multible highly customizable contact forms (I use about 10 different registration forms on my site) and updates are frequent.

I tried various forms, and this one is perfect for various uses like Contact form, information management, file upload, and has really good backend controls and views of all files uploaded. Well thought out component. Thanks.

Very flexible and powerful contact form. With ajax to submit the form, without need for page refresh, and its free.

• Multiple options for decent customizability.
• Automatic field insertion (text, checkbox, radio, dropdown select, etc.)
• Option for multiple contact forms (good for linking multiple e-mails)
• Concise; each input field in the administrator panel is well explained.
• Customer support super effective.
• Option for file upload.
• Internal inbox.


• Customer support a bit slow.
• Still can't figure out why some e-mails received land in my junk folder.

Overall it's the best contact form yet!

I installed it. Did not like the layout so tried to uninstall.

It does not uninstall!

Tried to follow instructions to reinstall and remove tables but could not reinstall menu item so was left with half uninstalled component whose folder and data i had to deleted manually.

At the very least an extension should cleanly uninstall!

Hi johngachui,

Thank you for your review.

The uninstall issue is a Joomla related problem:

As for design, this is very easy to configure in aiContactSafe Control Panel and we would have been more than happy to help you, had you asked for support in our support forum.

This is a good extension but it may not work right away. It was one of the first extensions I installed on a new 1.7 website I was building and the Captcha was not displaying (which meant the entire thing didn't work since no one can submit a comment without entering the captcha code).

When I asked about this in the developer's support forum I got a response right away. They said the problem was a script conflict on my site and the solution was to download another of their free extensions (jvFixScript) and set it to automatically resolve conflicts. I did and viola the captcha displays now and the extension works.

Since I suspect many others may have the same problem running it on 1.7 the developer may want to look into this or make a note more prominently that users may fix the problem in that way but other than that the extension looks great and is a great way to keep a record of and organize a website's correspondence.

Actually this is a problem generated by developers that don't understand how to code using other javascript libraries so their scripts will not conflict with mootools ( the default javascript library of Joomla ).
You should complain about them not about aiContactSafe.

I'm sorry you didn't understood that from the forum and came here and gave a bad review after we offer a professional extension and profession support for free.
Maybe you want to consider changing your ratting since it seams to be based on something that we have no control over.

I have tried a few other forms even those that are more highly rated than this one ... but none comes close! This guys have done an excellent job especially the ability to add my own fields and alter the structure of the form from Joomla admin section.

Thank you for the excellent free mod. I am impressed with the features and options. The only thing I would add is a few more formatting options. Great work like this makes open source amazing. Keep it up.

Just hit this piece of software by accident. A new client had it already installed. Way underrated and overseen in my humble opinion. Maybe the name implies a limited functionality... I never expected to find Email templates or entry manager in the backend.

Filed under contacts, but rather an underrated form component. I am surprised and will definitely keep an eye on it. Bookmarked for future projects!
