New in 18.5:

* An HTML5 "email" type field is now used for the "from" field
* Added HTML5 "placeholder" attribute so that default values are displayed


Simple but...


Posted on 29 June 2014

This module is simple to setup if you need something very basic and you don't intend to modify it. However with today's new layouts, if you plan to go beyond what the author gives you, you will find it pretty much impossible unless you hack the logic. The author did not use the template standard set by Joomla Team in creating this module, instead mixed the presentation with the logic. Using tables was the wrong approach, especially dealing with Joomla's responsive option, nor did this author use Bootstraps form options to properly layout the form. As a Senior UI Developer I cannot give this module high ratings as others reviewers. Regardless of this being a free module, mixing logic with presentation is a poor approach and I hope the author will take note and correct this in his next version update.


Went to Joomla Extensions for a simple email form creator and this one gave me exactly what I needed!

Simple set up, fast, and exactly what I needed.

Had it up and working from time of discovery to activation in less than 30 minutes.


Simple and Effective

I found the plugin easy to configure and use. It served my purpose well and it's useful for 90% of all contact form requirements. The only slight gripe is that there is no gap or line between the elements making it difficult to distinguish between elements.


Good extension, easy to use. Just have one problem, instead of showing article title, it shows category page title.


Great form. But i can't find option to include article title in email. I can't find anything about that in documentation.

Owner's reply: In the module configuration select "Advanced" options. Look for this setting:

Include Article Title
Yes No

Also please do not use the reviews as a place to ask questions folks: just go to the demo site joomla.unlikelysource.org and email the question right to me!!!

Thanks!

It's a nice form. Very easy to install and use. I think its best non-commercial form ever.


It works in a second and as simple as I need. I want to give five stars but I have one issue: it send category title instead article title. I really hope the developer or someone tell me the solution here.


problems


Posted on 25 December 2013

Good contactform. Need no more. I got 2 problems:

1) the path to a directory where the attachments are installend, is that a path to a directory "files" in windows or in the mediamanager of Joomla?

Is there an other possibility of getting the attachment. I work at the justice department and our open office files are higly protected, I cannot give a directory path. An email attachment is no probleme to open.

2/ After the contactform is filled in and send, it dissappears from my screen, how can I get it staying on my screen?


Easy to use, I love this module... If possible, add more custom fields option.


one of the best contact form
