Simple Contact Form

Recommended Posts

Never! change anything in the module code!

Just go to module settings (Admin > modules > SimpleContactForm > Edit) and add there the fields. Click submit, reload the form, you will see the new fields appended.

Please have a look at the documentation!

I'm having some troubles with the form. 

I've setup everything on my localhost and every thing seems to be working fine. Then i've copied everything to my server and for some reason the form stopped working. 

When I fill in all the field i get an error: 'Please verify the data you have entered.' even though everything looks fine. The weird part is that is doesn't say anything in the Logfile. 

Do you have any idea what the problem could be?

@ttttim: Do you use the latest version? Since the latest version every action should be logged.

Thankyou for building out this form. I was trying to setup the plugin, but everytime I remove a field name I get the following error: 

Error: Call to a member function save() on null (line 1098 of /home/marmil113/marshhospital.com/site/modules/simplecontactform/SimpleContactForm.module)

Any idea what I can do?

@carlos: I guess there is something broken with your database because the fieldgroup failed to save after removing a field. Is this a production installation? If not, I would recommend to deinstall this module and check the clear data option (please do a backup before). After that have a look at your database and clear all stuff generated by this module if there’s something left. If the deinstallation with the clean option fails, you have to do this manually.

I tested it again and everything is working as expected.

I've been playing around with simple contact form and it works great!

I'm pretty new to all this, i'm trying to send the form using ajax ( thats so the page doesn't refresh right? ), iv'e included jquery.simplecontactform.js using 

   <script src="<?php echo $config->urls->templates?>scripts/jquery.simplecontactform.js"></script>

on my main page.

but what do i do with 

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

$.simplecontactform($('.js-simplecontactform'));
}

iv'e tried adding it to my main page using <script> and also tried <?php> neither works.

Also is there a way to style the send confirmation text?

heres some examples of what i've done so far.

@Mido: Not the best but simplest solution:

  •  include jQuery
  •  include SimpleContactForm script
  •  include a general js file (main.js for example) which contains the function call you mentioned above

To style the confirmation text, modify the template, add a class and add CSS for that class.

Hey

I really like this module and got it working quite well. There's only a few issues which I've encountered. Some mails are being sent directly and other need a wait time of maybe 30 minutes to be send to the email I've set in the settings. I've excluded my IP for the spam option yet it takes a long time for some messages to get through. Any idea what triggers this?

In the /scf-messages/ I can still see all the messages right away after they have been accepted by the system.  Could it still have something to do with the spam filter?

edit: Tried another IP too, still waiting for the mail...

edit 2: Last received mail took 2h to arrive

edit 3: Now they seem to come straight away... weird...

hi,

I'm quite sure that this behaviour is not related to this module. The spam filter only checks some stuff and if everything is fine it hands the mail over to the mail agent and saves the message. Have a look at your mail log, maybe there is a queue. If the message was saved successfully, the spam checks are passed without any problem.

Thanks @justb3a for your module, I am finally getting to use it :)

TL;DR

Is there something I need to configure in SCF to ensure it uses the WireMailSMTP module to send mail rather than in-built/default methods in PW? Thanks for any comments.

Background

I would like to sent mail via Mandrill and so as I have in the past with the PW Forms module I have installed WiremailSMPT; I noticed you said SCF now supports WireMail. I assumed that this meant when email was sent from the SCF if WireMailSMTP was installed it would automatically go via that module (and it's settings (Mandrill in my case)), but so far I am finding emails are arriving AOK but not via the WireMailSMTP module (as Mandrill is not listed in the route).

I began editing simple_contact_form.php and found I was getting [FAILURE] CSRF Token validation failed. I back-tracked and found that, apparently, reindenting the code of the original form file with a Sublime Text plugin caused the errors..? I tried to diff the original versus the reindented one but as far as I could see nothing was 'wrong', just differently indented.

No time now to do stuff like try an alt diff tool in case the first missed something, but I thought I'd share in case this helps anyone else.

@justb3a if a copy of the indented-and-broken code would be helpful just let me know and I'll publish it on Dropbox or similar.

Thanks @Christophe, perhaps that is it. If I find more/get to test that then I'll post here.

@all Right now all is good and I am just trying to work out how to have SCF use WireMailSMTP rather than native PW transport.

@alan: Did you check that CSRF token validation works? If you load the form (frontend) there should be a hidden input containing a generated name and value:

<input type="hidden" id="_post_token" name="TOKEN1234567891X1234567891" value="A1B2c3d4efgHIj5klLmno6pQrstUVwxy" />

As said above, the name and value are generated, make sure it's not hardcoded. Also have a look at your log file (simplecontactform-log), all errors are displayed there.

I've never used WireMailSMTP – if you've figured out how to use it, please let me know!  ;)

It uses it out of the box, mean: you haven't to do anything in regard of SCF. SCF uses wiremail(), - and if you have installed and setup wiremailSMTP, it is used instead of the basic wiremail, which uses the PHP mail function.

@justb3a Thanks, yes the token is there and since I undid the reindenting of code it works AOK. Also thanks I have used the log to see what was wrong (very helpful, I also spotted that my test emails had hit the IP address limit per day so I upped it for testing :)

@horst Thanks, yes I assumed that it was used. But I am pretty sure it's not being used...

History: I installed and used SCF to send email (via PW built in wiremail I assume). Then I installed WireMailSMTP and set it to use my Mandrill credentials.

But email is arriving without showing Mandrill as the sender (view email headers also shows no mention of Mandrill.com) and based on all my other uses of WiremailSMTP+Mandrill I assume (where Mandrill is listed) I assume this mean Mandrill and therefore WireMailSMTP are being bypassed (I guess?).

Env: • WireMailSMTP passes it's connectivity test. • I have debug turned on.

If there's anything I can do to help test what may be happening I'd be happy to test and report.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

I use it on one site with wiremailSMTP and it works. But I haven't used it together with Mandrill.

I think you use a recent or latest version of SCF? (earlier version hasn't supported wiremail())

You may check in the headers of your emails for the User-Agent, e.g. ProcessWire/WireMail or ProcessWire/WireMailSMTP or ...

@horst Thanks for the suggestions, I will check and report back in case it's of any help to others.

@horst I checked and

  • SCF is 0.1.2 which is the latest at the moment = ✔
  • header says "...X-Mailer: ProcessWire/WireMail..." = ✖

so my setup (WireMailSMTP ver 0.1.13 on a PW 2.7.0 site and SCF) seems to be working AOK but emails are bypassing WireMailSMTP :'(

@justb3a and/or @horst : if there is anything I could do here to help fix this for me (and I assume others) then I would be happy to try stuff and report back/thanks for any suggestions you may have :)

Fixed the problem where WireMailSMTP is being bypassed in favour of WireMail...

@justb3a I would usually leave module code 100% alone, but comparing how mail is called in another site I noticed it was different, so I edited `SimpleContactForm.module` around line 478 like this: 

// Below original module code bypasses WireMailSMTP
// $wireMail = new WireMail();

// Below does not bypass WireMailSMTP
$wireMail = wireMail();

and email is then sent via WireMailSMTP. If I edit it back to the original then it bypasses WireMailSMTP and I can switch back and forth depending on how I leave the code around line 478.

If this is this something you would like me to log on git etc then please let me know as I would love to have an official (unedited) copy of your excellent module that used WireMailSMTP.

Sorry if I explained that all badly and thanks again for this module, cheers, -Alan

@alan: WOW! What a great find.  ^-^  You are right. I have checked this and yes, on the site I thought it would working together, it also bypasses SMTP as you described it.

@justb3a: please can you fix this with one of the next releases?

      Hi all,
      I'm a new to website building. Learned some CRASH course of js,jquery,php. Then I found CMS. Still learning around forum, youtube....
      Anyway, please help me with some beginer questions:
      1, About template - please correct me if I understand wrong : every page should be (or recommended) built on a template. So if in total I'll have 10 pages, 2 of them have same layout, I'll need 9 templates.  And, what fields a page includes, is not defined in page, but defined in the template that page uses. 
      2,  Where to see what modules I've installed? is it in "Modules - Site"? 
      3, I installed "PageTable Extended", then what?  As in a youtube tutorial, it should appear in Setup tab, but it doesn't.  What's in there: templates,fields,logs,comments. (I installed "Uikit 3 site_blog profile".)
      4, I did a search in Processwire website for the famous "repeater matrix" module, and can not find it, there's a Repeater, as well as a Matrix. Is it not a module?
      5, I watched this youtube tuts: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IHqnLQy9R1A
      Anybody familiar with this tuts please help: 
      After he analysed a target webpage layout he wanted to mimic, he created some fields, some template, then based on those he created a page and input some "content" in there, then clicked "view", it's just some text. So, here comes my question, he copied a folder "assets" (subfolders are: css,fonts,js,img) over, then the page have the appearance/layout he wanted to mimic. Where does that assets folder come from?
      Appreciate any help.

      I've created a set of modules for importing (manipulating and displaying) data from external resources. A key requirement was to handle large (100k+) number of pages easily.
      Main features
      import data from CSV and XML sources in the background (using Tasker) purge, update or overwrite existing pages using selectors user configurable input <-> field mappings on-the-fly data conversion and composition (e.g. joining CSV columns into a single field) download external resources (files, images) during import handle page references by any (even numeric) fields How it works
      You can upload CSV or XML files to DataSet pages and specify import rules in their description.
      The module imports the content of the file and creates/updates child pages automatically.
      How to use it
      Create a DataSet page that stores the source file. The file's description field specifies how the import should be done:
      After saving the DataSet page an import button should appear below the file description.

      When you start the import the DataSet module creates a task (executed by Tasker) that will import the data in the background.
      You can monitor its execution and check its logs for errors.

      See the module's wiki for more details.
      The module was already used in three projects to import and handle large XML and CSV datasets. It has some rough edges and I'm sure it needs improvement so comments are welcome.

      Pages At Bottom
      Keeps selected pages at the bottom of their siblings.
      A "bottom page" will stay at the bottom even if it is drag-sorted to a different location or another page is drag-sorted below it (after Page List is refreshed the bottom page will still be at the bottom).
      Newly added sibling pages will not appear below a bottom page.
      The module also prevents the API methods $pages->sort() and $pages->insertAfter() from affecting the position of bottom pages.
      Note: the module only works when the sort setting for children on the parent page/template is "Manual drag-n-drop".
      Why?
      Because you want some pages to always be at the bottom of their siblings for one reason or another. And someone requested it. 🙂
      Usage
      Install the Pages At Bottom module.
      Select one or more pages to keep at the bottom of their siblings. If you select more than one bottom page per parent then their sort order in the page list will be the same as the sort order in the module config.

      Another little admin helper module...
      Template Field Widths
      Adds a "Field widths" field to Edit Template that allows you to quickly set the widths of inputfields in the template.

      Why?
      When setting up a new template or trying out different field layouts I find it a bit slow and tedious to have to open each field individually in a modal just to set the width. This module speeds up the process.
      Installation
      Install the Template Field Widths module.
      Config options
      You can set the default presentation of the "Field widths" field to collapsed or open. You can choose Name or Label as the primary identifier shown for the field. The unchosen alternative will become the title attribute shown on hover. You can choose to show the original field width next to the template context field width.
