Does not work with caching

Posted on 14 September 2015

Does not work on a website that uses caching or https.

Ease of use

Works straightforward, Easy to use. Global options would be handy.

I used this to: Used it for a charitative website with 20+ contactforms. Quit using it because it just did not work. No mails were sent. Sometimes it accidentally did sent a mail.
Owner's reply: Hello Jaap.
Thank you for reviewing Rapid Contact and I'm sorry that you feel this way about it. Rapid Contact does work with https, as long as the option "Disable HTTPS" is not set to "Yes". Moreover, it does work with site cache by default, as most other modules, except when you add it to an article using the loadposition plugin, in which case you just need to change another option, which is called "Caching".
Assuming that it really did not work with neither https nor cache, is it fair to rate an (otherwise very well-rated) extension's functionality to 1/100, without even trying to contact the developer, or explore an extension's options and FAQ? Humorously speaking, "the thing must work somehow", right? :-)
I would very much appreciate it if you contact me at and give me an opportunity to change your mind about my extension.

Excellent Support

Excellent extension for contact, works great, I specially like modification options for fields.

Every praise for authors work and also for his fast email help with tehnical support!

Great module and support

Posted on 23 January 2014

Rapid Contact packs everything I needed in a simple, sleek and effective module. Setting it up was easy even though I'm not an experienced user.

Since I'm relatively new to Joomla I had a little issue, but it was promptly fixed by contacting Christopher. Support was quick and excellent even though I'm using the free, non-commercial version.

Really great. I installed it and everything was really easy. The best thing about this is that it gives option to select the label of each text box. So I used my own language (Urdu) to replace the labels of text boxes as Email and others.

Thanks a lot developers.

Great module!!!!

I like it a lot. it helped me very much, i used other modules that was complicated and i waste o lot of time. this is simple and very useful.

Ok for free but ...

Posted on 01 December 2013

Installed it without a problem. Very easy to set up. The settings for the widths of some fields won't change in my Joomla 3.x installation - someone with a similar problem in April reported this in the bugs support forum but it's still happening. No response in the forum to a further problem. I now have installed another contacts free component and it all works fine. This contact form might work for you as it has some nice touches and should be worth a look but it didn't do it for me.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review, but being a free product, the support has to wait when there is much work to do for commercial products. If you found a post from April in the forums without an answer, that means that the OP has contacted me and solved the problem already. If the widths are not changing, then maybe your template has a set width. I would appreciate a direct contact before a review (as indicated by the JED review rules). Thanks again.

This is an excellent module, simple to use and configure, very useful.

My only slight complaint is that there is, I think, no way to do template overrides with it. If it supported template overrides, I'd give it 5 rather than 4.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review. Since you aren't sure about whether or not a feature exists, you could have contacted me before reviewing, to learn that Rapid Contact CAN be overwritten by a template, and in fact it is even pre-installed with some templates that overwrite it. Thanks again.

Simliar functionality has been found in the JED, but never done in such a simplistic 12kb way of thinking! To add it in an article (if not in auto popfeed mode) you add: {popfeed}Your Text{/popfeed} To optionally change the mail recipient in an article, you write: {popfeedmailrecipient}{/popfeedmailrecipient} Many thanks to my friend Ivan for suggesting and communicating with me throughout the whole process of creating this very useful plugin!

Nearest Places is a very smart extension to show nearest places, using Joomla! articles. NO API, NO KEYS. Each article is assigned its coordinates, longitude and lattitude, and then this module shows which other articles are near, including distances. Nearest Places is ideal for tourist sites, presenting lists of hotels, villas, beaches, POI, monuments, museums, metro stations and all the rest! Although, it can work greatly for any kind of distance between objects: Gas Stations, Banks, Stores, Restaurants, even airports, cities, capitals of countries and more! Give your visitors a great experience with ease. Anyone can understand distances and get familiar with your subject, whatever that is. Whether you are promoting your home town, helping people get to the closest store they need or comparing Earth's greatest capitals, Nearest Places is for you!
