This is great. I thought about doing a contact form module myself as i would have needed it in nearly every single project we've done recently.

Btw: I like that all of your modules support TemplateTwigReplace! :)

Amazing!

I've been mostly doing this functionality in my templates as far as I haven't needed any save functionality but I will be defiantly be checking this out when i do.

Little update: I added one more spam protection:

  • antiSpamCountAdditionalInputs - Number of additional inputs. Spam bots often send more than the number of available fields.

Thanks for your feedback  :)

Very nice.. just tryed it out and works perfectly.

I had a little trouble with ajax but sorted out in the end.

My fault for copy and pasting from the instructions but this code below needs to be changed:

if ($('.js-simplecontactform').length) {
  $.simplecontactform($('.js-simplecontactform'));
}

to

if ($('.js-simple_contact_form').length) {
   $.simplecontactform($('.js-simple_contact_form'));
}

just a matter of class name if using the default class of the form in simple_contact_form.php

Hello, 

I was glad to find this module, cause that was just what I looked for.. but I upload the module and when I Install it, I have an error : Method Modules::getInstall does not exist or is not callable in this context

But If I go back in the module page, It seems well installed (I have access to the settings), but when I call the form in my template, an error appears : Error Exception: Method Modules::getInstall does not exist or is not callable in this context (in /home/www/d7a3bc5db5bed31cde906ac7976f3d83/web/wire/core/Wire.php line 231)

Any ideas ? Maybe I skipped a step...

I'm not a Master in PW, but I globally understand how it works..

Thanks in advance.

Hi @nyo08,

which version of ProcessWire are you using?

I found a similar error and changed my code as explained.

Please clone the module (github) and checkout  hotfix/2.4-dependency and try again. And please let me know if everything works as expected.

I tested it (ProcessWire 2.5.3) without any problems.

git clone git@github.com:justonestep/processwire-simplecontactform.git SimpleContactForm
cd SimpleContactForm
git checkout  hotfix/2.4-dependency

This module seems to be great.

Is there any option to set the Labeltext for the Inputfields?

It would be great if the wireMail function could be used for sending emails instead of the php mail function.

This way people would be able to use it together with their favourite mail extensions. For example with SMTP support: wiremail-swiftmailer or wiremailsmtp

@makari: This module creates a simple template, you can / should change the html structure as well as the label texts. If you need multi language support you have to change the text like this echo __("the label text here!"). Now you can translate the labels via Processwire Backend.

@horst: Thats a good point but first I have to finish another project. I will keep it in mind – as some other things (I did not forget your message  ;) ).

Hey there,

I've installed this module. It has created a new template simple_contact_form.php

I've created a page and used simple_contact_form.php as its template

So I see the contact form on the new page, but it doesn't seem to work (I've used my @gmail.com as emailTo)

is there anything else I should do to make it work?

Gmail doesn't allow you to send an email from yourself to yourself, unlike other email platforms.  The message gets sent but you don't receive the copy, since if's from yourself.

I didn't try to send an e-mail to myself?

I have sent @gmail e-mail in the module settings and was testing it on the site using another e-mail, but nothing much happens there..

Ok, then I would then look at the php mail function on your server.  I believe this module doesn't make use of enhanced PW capabilities for email sending.

It would be great if the wireMail function could be used for sending emails instead of the php mail function.

The module uses now the WireMail function instead of php mail.

Besides I added the tag "scf" for fields and templates created by this module (just available on a new installation).

Hi,

Just experienced a couple of bugs with this module which happen when the save messages setting is off.

SimpleContactForm.module

First bug:

if (!$this->pages->findOne('name=' . $this->pageName) instanceof Pages) {

I believe this should be without the "!" at the start as it is currently the wrong way around. Removing it fixed it for me.

Next bug:

} elseif (!in_array($currentIp, $excludeIps)) {

This line should also check if the saveMessages setting is on, i.e.:

} elseif (!in_array($currentIp, $excludeIps) && $this->saveMessages) {

I haven't tested any of these with other settings and I'm not sure they are correct - just needs some looking into.

@BrettMW: Indeed, I only tested this at the beginning with save message settings deactivated. Thanks for your feedback, I will test and implement this as soon as possible.

New version 0.0.9 includes fixes for deactivated save message setting.

On line :343 I removed the exclamation mark (!) and I corrected the instance to compare with. This has to be Page instead of Pages because findOne returns a single page (because of this double bug the messages has been stored). I included a second check here just to make sure that save messages is on. I also included this additional check on line :396.

New version 0.1.0 adds some more spam protection possibilities and logging.

  • CSRF validation
  • mark messages as spam (by mail or/and ip address)
  • logging for received messages and spam
  • sort option for repeater items in backend to get the latest to the beginning of the list

For more information have a look at the readme.

NOTICE: If you upgrade an existing installation from 0.0.9 and below to the current version, there are some steps to be taken.

      WHY?
      This module was built to fill the gap between simple $pages->find() operations and complex SQL queries.
      The problem with $pages->find() is that it loads all pages into memory and that can be a problem when querying multiple thousands of pages. Even $pages->findMany() loads all pages into memory and therefore is a lot slower than regular SQL.
      The problem with SQL on the other hand is, that the queries are quite complex to build. All fields are separate tables, some repeatable fields use multiple rows for their content that belong to only one single page, you always need to check for the page status (which is not necessary on regular find() operations and therefore nobody is used to that).
      In short: It is far too much work to efficiently and easily get an array of data based on PW pages and fields and I need that a lot for my RockGrid module to build all kinds of tabular data.

      Basic Usage

      Hello for all,
      ConfigurationForm fieldtype module is one my experiment from 2016.
      Main target to build this module was to store multiple setup and configuration values in just 1 field and avoid to use 1 db table to store just single "number of items on page", or another db table to store "layout type" etc. Thanks to JSON formatted storage this module can help you to reduce number of PW native fields in project, save DB space, and reduce number of queries at front-end.
      Install and setup:
      Download (at the bottom ), unzip and install like any other PW module (site/modules/...). Create some filed using this type of field (ConfigurationForm Fieldtype) Go to field setup Input tab and drag some subfields to container area (demo). Set "Name" and other params for subfields Save and place field to templates ("Action tab") How to use it:
      In my case, I use it to store setup and configurations values, but also for contact details, small content blocks... (eg. "widgets").
      Basic usage example:
      ConfigForm fieldtype "setup" has subfields:
      "limit", type select, option values: 5, 10, 15, 20
      "sort", type select, option values: "-date", "date",  "-sort", "sort"
      // get page children (items) $limit = isset($page->setup->limit) ? $page->setup->limit : 10; $sort = isset($page->setup->sort) ? $page->setup->sort : '-sort'; $items = $page->children("limit=$limit, sort=$sort");  
      Screenshots:


       
      Notes:
      Provide option to search inside subfields Provide multilanguage inputs for text and textarea field types Provide option for different field layout per-template basis Do not place/use field type "Button" or "File input" because it won't works. Please read README file for more details and examples Module use JSON format to store values. Text and textarea field types are multilanguage compatible, but please note that main target for this module was to store setup values and small content blocks and save DB space. Search part inside JSON is still a relatively new in MySQL (>=5.77) and that's on you how and for what to use this module.
      Thanks:
      Initial point for this fieldtype was jQuery plugin FormBuiled and thanks to Kevin Chappel for this plugin.
      In field type "link" I use javascript part from @marcostoll module and thanks to him for that part.

      Hi guys I'm relatively new to PW and just finished developing a page for a client. I was able to include all necessary functionality using the core fieldtypes but now I it seems that I need to extend them with a custom one. What I need is a simple button, that copies the absolute url (frontend not PW-backend) of the page which is currently edited to the clipboard. As this feature is only needed inside a specific template, I tend to use a custom fieldtype which provides this feature. I've been looking inside the core modules code (eg. FieldtypeCheckbox.module) but I don't really get the structure of it and how its rendered to the admin page. I also didn't find a lot of tutorials covering custom fieldtypes.
      Maybe some of you could give me some tips on how to write a basic custom fieldtype that renders a button which copies the value of
      page->httpUrl() to the clipboard using JS. Thanks!

      Some of you might have followed the development of this module here: https://processwire.com/talk/topic/15524-previewdiscussion-rockdatatables/ . It is the successor of "RockDataTables" and requires RockFinder to get the data for the grid easily and efficiently. It uses the open source part of agGrid for grid rendering.
       
      WHY?
      ProcessWire is awesome for creating all kinds of custom backend applications, but where it is not so awesome in my opinion is when it comes to listing this data. Of course we have the built in page lister and we have ListerPro, but none of that solutions is capable of properly displaying large amounts of data, for example lists of revenues, aggregations, quick and easy sorts by the user, instant filter and those kind of features. RockGrid to the rescue 😉 
       
      Features/Highlights:
      100k+ rows Instant (client side) filter, search, sort (different sort based on data type, eg "lower/greater than" for numbers, "contains" for strings) extendable via plugins (available plugins at the moment: fullscreen, csv export, reload, batch-processing of data, column sum/statistics, row selection) all the agGrid features (cell renderers, cell styling, pagination, column grouping etc) vanilla javascript, backend and frontend support (though not all plugins are working on the frontend yet and I don't plan to support it as long as I don't need it myself)  
      Limitations:
      While there is an option to retrieve data via AJAX the actual processing of the grid (displaying, filtering, sorting) is done on the client side, meaning that you can get into troubles when handling really large datasets of several thousands of rows. agGrid should be one of the most performant grid options in the world (see the official example page with a 100k row example) and does a lot to prevent problems (such as virtual row rendering), but you should always have this limitation in mind as this is a major difference to the available lister options that do not have this limitation.
      Currently it only supports AdminThemeUikit and I don't plan to support any other admin theme.
