Introduction

Contact forms

FlexiContact is a free contact form that is very easy to setup yet has enough features for most websites. When properly setup, it's completely spam-proof, even without a captcha. The free user guide explains how.


  • Compatible with Joomla 3, Joomla 4, PHP 5, and PHP 7.
  • Responsive.
  • Configurable email templates giving complete control over email content, format, and subject.
  • Configurable page header, top text, and bottom text.
  • Up to five additional user-defined text fields.
  • User-defined list field.
  • All fields can be optional, mandatory, or not shown.
  • Optional simple image captcha system: "Please click on the cat/dog/etc". You can choose from six (free) image packs, or you can add your own pictures to the image library.
  • Optional "magic word" system. The user must find and enter the correct magic word to send a message. You can make the magic word easy to find, or difficult.
  • You can include the Joomla ReCaptcha Plugin, the Joomla Invisible ReCaptcha Plugin or any other compatible Joomla Captcha Plugin
  • Optional auto-fill of email address and name or username for logged in users.
  • Optionally logs all contacts. The log is viewable in the back end and includes the browser type and IP address of the sender.
  • Multi-language with many languages. The user guide explains how to add your own language.
  • Built-in editor to easily edit the front-end CSS styles.
  • Option to show or not show "Email a copy of this message to your own address"
  • Option to require agreement of a statement and/or linked article before the send button is enabled.
  • The confirmation page can include data from the form, or redirect to a completely different page.

FlexiContact is fully documented in a detailed PDF user guide.

didn't work



Posted on 17 November 2020
Functionality
Couldn't get it to function, set up the email and the webpage in my menu, it displays Ok on the page, I filled it in to test it and nothing.
Ease of use
Quite difficult, followed all of the directions but still did not work. My site is set up correctly for emails.
Support
I used the free version first to test it out and there is no support
Documentation
very long winded and not very well put together, it also seems incorrect.
I used this to: can't use it unfortunately. I wish I could, would have been a good thing.

piccola e perfetta

Functionality
Fa quello che serve immediatamente ed ha anche un buon antispam. Sono poi passato a quella a pagamento per funzionalità complesse.
Ease of use
Completamente facile da usare e veloce soprattutto. Consente di lavorare da subito. Non c'è da fare configurazioni avanzate.
Support
Il supporto è stato perfetto sia per questa che per quella apagamento. Ma non serve molto dato che è chiaro come funziona da subito ripeto.
Documentation
La documentazione è ossessivamente perfetta. Credo che essa serva proprio a limitare i ticket, più il manuale è ben fatto e meno si aprono.
I used this to: La usavo per tutti i siti fino a che non sono migrato a quella a pagamento. Meritano perchè limitano le chiamate ai database. Pertanto non rallenta il sito!!!! Ho usato altri componenti che lo atterravano. Questa software house ragazzi è perfetta! Superconsigliata!!
Functionality
Easy to install & get up & running! Has everything I needed for a contact form for our organization's website.
Ease of use
Almost brain-dead simple to get a basic contact form up & running.
Support
Fantastic! Had an issue. Submitted a request. Chris jumped right on it & figured out it was my template. And this was the FREE product!
Documentation
Very well organized and easy to understand. But you almost don't even need it, as the extension is very intuitive to configure.
I used this to: Provides a contact form for our organization's website. I've been using FlexiContact for years, and it has been a very reliable "go-to" extension for my Joomla sites. Well Done!
Functionality
Installed and had a contact form up and running in 3 minutes. It couldn't be simpler
Ease of use
Very simple to configure and use what more can you say. It seems I have to say more to satisfy the stupid restrictions on the JED
Support
I didn't need it,so I don't know if the support is good or bad.Again I have to write more to satisfy the JED.
Documentation
A very simple and concise downloadable pdf,just download and read,simples.
I used this to: To replace the standard joomla contact form which is an easily targeted form for spam.

Functional Extension



Posted on 03 December 2019
Functionality
I use Flexi Contact as a simple contact form for my club website. I have been using it for many years with no mishaps.
Ease of use
Flexi Contact is easy to set up and use. It has a simple and obvious interface that allows you to set up one or multiple contacts.
Documentation
The documentation comes in the form of a download next to the extension download button. It is concise and easy to follow.
I used this to: It is an email contact form for our local club website. It does not require any maintenance other than checking for updates every once and a while.

Just what I needed



Posted on 09 October 2019
Functionality
It has everything I was looking for. I needed a few special fields and to be able to send a customised email back to the user.
Ease of use
I'm fairly new to Joomla but didn't have any trouble installing and setting it up.
Support
Didn't need any, but I have no reason to think it wouldn't be as good as the software and documentation.
Documentation
Very detailed and well organised. Gives lots of background information about capture, cookies, spam protection and troubleshooting.
I used this to: Users to enquire about our services. It's really useful to be able to configure the email subject and text as templates.
Functionality
FlexiContact has ample options and functionality.
Ease of use
I am quite a beginner in web design and have struggled with other Joomla extensions. But FlexiContact is truly simple to set up.
Support
None required.
Documentation
Superb User Manual. Describes not only what to do but why to do it.
I used this to: Contact form for my business web site.

Almost The Best - ALMOST!

Functionality
Easy to install. GUI is user friendly with loads of help and tool tips.
Ease of use
Very simple to setup using the intuitive GUI.
It is NOT free.
Support
My Host blocked 4 of my sites using FC because hackers used the script to send spam. Response from Dev was that I had not paid for support.
Documentation
Docs assume it's a perfect world, but are very good otherwise.
I used this to: Contact form. Hackers used it to circumvent security and spam... according to Host. Don't get me wrong, this is friendly, easy to use with clean definable GUI, @ a fair price.

Owner's reply: Flexicontact is completely free and we do not offer a paid support option for our free products. Unfortunately it's not possible to offer free personal support for free products. Life is expensive, and we have to eat and pay bills like everyone else. I wish we could provide free support, but we can't, so we make our policy very clear. There is no free support for free products, although we are always happy to receive bug reports or suggestions for improvement to the software or the user guide.

In fact, we did try to help this person, providing detailed replies to several emails. The user guide documents how to make the form totally unusable for spamming, even without a captcha, so referring him to the relevant section of the user guide was really as much advice as anyone should need. No form can prevent manual spam, but if you follow the advice in the spam prevention section of the user guide, you should not receive any serious volume of spam.

I do not know how we could have helped this user any more than we did, so it's very disappointing and disheartening to get a review like this.

Functionality
It does exactly what the description promises.
Ease of use
Super easy to install and use even for me as a relative beginner in the Joomla world.
Support
No support was needed, though I'm sure it would have been great.
Documentation
The documentation tops most of the extentions I've encountered so far. A PDF file is supplied explaining how to install and use it.
I used this to: My test site at the moment, and will use it on customer sites as well. It's super easy to use and allows the use of the google recaptcha, while some others charge for this functionality. I have not used any of the available captcha templates because the google one is simple.
Functionality
Flexi Contact provides a basic contact form with some options. Which is exactly what I needed; I only wanted a simple, easy-to-use form.
Ease of use
A pdf is provided: read it. Installation is VERY simple but it's a good idea to scan the Docs in order to tweak the setup.
Support
I didn't need any. Easy peasy setup.
Documentation
Excellent documentation! I was very impressed with the PDF. Beautiful layout (from a writer's perspective) and very thorough.
I used this to: Contact form on two websites. I am very impressed with Flexi-Contact.
