In case you need help there is also a full pdf user guide.
I had thought it made no sense to have a form that required users to enter their name and e-mail address when they were already logged on the site, so i was absolutely delighted when i found this extension.
A couple of small issues came up on the front-end but after reporting them to the developer, the reply was immediate and a solution was within less than an hour. Simply perfect!
i have a couple joomla 1.6 sites using a templates from joomlart.com and for whatever reason the contact page was not working. i didn't feel like troubleshooting the issue and posting to joomlart.com the bug (yet). So I went looking for a freebie contact form. FlexiContact works as expected and had a nice document for download to help with any configuration. Thx you !
It is very straightforward to install and configure.
PDF documentation is also very extensive and good.
Additionally, I would like to see capability to include it as Module or as a part of content. But nevertheless, it is great.
Not only is it simple to install, really clear to understand and complete setup, but html can also be entered into the text before or after the selected contact fields. This made it possible for me to keep the uniform look of my site.
And it's free! Thanks to the dev. :-)
I installed it, added menu item, and adjusted a few settings and it works perfect as always.
If you need a simple, but solid contact form, that protects from spammers, then this might be for you.
I love it!
I will not mention names, but I did install 4 other contact forms for 1.6, and once I saw Flexi was available for the new Joomla, I uninstalled all the others.
2. go to components->flexicontact, config, write down the mail in which you want to receive the contacting person info.
3. DONE! It couldn't be easier!
lots of THX to developers, im gonna check out the other flexi-things around!
I had no trouble setting this up in less than 5 minutes and that includes playing around with my text for above and below AND finding a graphic to add in for flavor. Well Done!
It was very simple to get it working, and it worked without a problem, until yesterday....
Yesterday, it stopped working.
It kept saying that there was no email to adress.
Since it worked, i thought i did remove the "to adress" by mistake, but in the settings, the "to adress" was visible, so i don't know why it kept saying it wasn't...
I uninstalled the extension, since i could not find a solution for the problem.
You could have asked us for help. If there are any problems we need to know about them!
