ALFcontact is a small 'Contact Us' form.

  • Favourite
  • Report

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 access level and/or language, these aliases are defined in the administrator section, each with their own set of options.

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, details can optionally be pre-filled.

Captcha security is included with support for Joomla's built-in reCaptcha plugin.

GPDR Support is now also included.

ALFContact supports around 33 languages at the moment and the number is growing, check the website for the latest information.

Brilliantly simple.

Does what it claims to, and more. You can add custom text fields but I have not found out if checkboxes or radio buttons are available.
Ease of use
Fairly easy to use, it took me abour 3 minutes to make and publish the first form.
Documentation
Quite limited.There is a video on the creators website, but that's about it.
I used this to: Contact forms on my website... The extension does not do much else. (Having to fill out a number of characters to post a review here is stupid.)
Functionality
Alfcontact is an easy to use extension that works well for contact functionality

Support
no reaction to submitted bug :-(
Documentation
After having php problem I found a plugin on the developers website to fix problems with sh404. But the plugin didn´t solve the problem.
I used this to: a joomla 3.6.5 website
Owner's reply: I put a lot of time and effort into trying to resolve every issue there might be with ALFContact.
This is a free component and as such you can't expect to have your issue resolve within a few days.
Despite the fact that rating my support as 1 is not very encouraging, I will do my utmost to get your problem resolved as soon as time permits.

Simple

With the examples pre-loaded in the component, it takes less than 2 minutes to fully comprehend the component
Ease of use
I finally figured out the following text meant :-
Invalid field: Message :
I think it should read as :- Message field cannot be empty
Functionality
Very good.
You can set up multiple 'destinations' for the message. Each allows for extra input fields.
Ease of use
Very easy.
Support
Excellent. I had a problem with installation, and got quick response. Turned out to be a Joomla configuration error of the tmp directory.
I used this to: General contact page. A suggestion is to allow side text to put some address information.

This is quite a simple and brilliant addition to my site! Thank you for this extension!



It was really easy to edit the language to my own and to set up. The E-mails I recive are really clear and set up 100% to my liking.



I higly recomend AlfContact!
I installed and set up the extension in no time. Totally intuitive.



Mine is a multi-language site (Spanish / English) and the language switching works perfectly... except for two details:



(1) The Custom Message in Redirect tab is global, and I think it should be an option for the Menu Item, attached to the language, so a different "Thank you" page can appear depending on the language.



(2) The Captcha language selection should also be an option of the Menu Item, instead of global, so the right language help text appears when clicking on the Captcha help icon, depending on the language of the page.
Owner's reply: Thanks for the review.
Your comments are appreciated and I'll work on an update with the suggested improvements.
