Feature

This plugin allows you to creates a single checkbox field in any form that supports custom fields e.g. in the contact form where you can make sure the privacy message is checked. But this also allow any other single checkbox usecase. Over the core plugin this allows to use a `` tag inside of the message to be shown to the user. Any other html tag is going to be removed.

Configuration

Initial setup the plugin with the example for the contact form

  • Download the latest version of the plugin
  • Install & Enable the plugin Fields - PrivacyCheckbox
  • Create a new custom field for the email form of the contact component
    • Components -> Contacts -> Fields
    • Select the contect Mail from the dropdown
    • Create the custom field using New
    • Set the desired title for the field
    • Set the type to privacycheckbox
    • Add your desired text to the Checkbox Note field (You can include links using the `` tag)
    • Add your desired text to the Email Text field
    • Go to the permission tab and allow Public to Edit Custom Field Value
    • Save & Close

Option descriptions

Checkbox Note

This is the message showed next to the checkbox containing your message about privacy.

Email Text

This is the message included in the email send to the user next to the custom field. Per default it is just checked.

Implement multilanguage

This field support two different ways to be translated into different languages.

Using a language string

For the checkbox note you can add any string you want and override them with the desired text foreach language.

For example for the Checkbox Note text:
- Enter the self defined Language Constant PLG_FIELDS_PRIVACYCHECKBOX_CUSTOM_CONTENT (it works with any string)
- Go to the Language Overrider: Extensions -> Language(s) -> Overrides.
- Select your desired target language
- Create the Language Constant by using New
- The field Language Constant contain the constant we set in the plugin settings
- The field Text contain the override per language.
- Save & Close
- Select the next language and so on.

The plugin read the translation from the overrides and fallback to the en-GB value.

Using the language assignment field

As this plugin is a fields plugin you can assign a language to the field. So in case of multilanguage you can create a field that is assigned to de-DE and another one that is assigned to en-GB with the desired texts configured in the plugin.

Global Plugin Options

All field plugins have the possibility to be configured with global default options.

To configure this please go to the Plugin Configuration:
- Extensions -> Plugins
- Use the search tools to filter for Type == fields
- You will find the Fields - Privacy Checkbox plugin
- Edit the plugin

There you find both the Checkbox Note and the Email Text field to be configured globally.

Functionality
This plugin adds a new Custom Field to add an "agree with Privacy Policy" checkbox to your forms (e.g.Joomla's default contact form).
Ease of use
It's not a "just install" plugin. You will need to create a Custom Field yourself. Which is easy if you follow the documentation.
Support
I have not needed any support. The plugin has its own public github repository where you can create an issue in case you find any.
Documentation
Excellent documentation with step-by-step tutorial to implement the Custom Field in your Joomla site.
I used this to: A default Joomla contact form (com_contact) to ask if the submitter complies with the privacy policy of the website.
