Contact forms, Forms, Email

Leverages the mystical onSubmitContact Joomla! plugin event to email additional field data added by plugins.

This plugin does not add any fields to forms. It instead includes, in the email generated by extensions that use the onSubmitContact Joomla! plugin event, all data from fields added to the form by a custom plugin like that described at

Without this plugin, if you add fields to the core contact form, the data submitted in those fields are not included in the contact email sent by Joomla.
