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?

      MediaLibrary
      Update: MediaLibrary can now be found in the official module list.
      Out of necessity, I've started to implement a simple media library module.
      The basic mechanism is that it adds a MediaLibrary template with file and image fields. Pages of this type can be added anywhere in the page tree.
      The link and image pickers in CKEditor are extended to allow quick selection of library pages from dropdowns. In the link picker this happens in the MediaLibrary tab, where you can also see a preview of the selected image. In the image picker, simply select a library from the dropdown at the top, everything else is handled by standard functionality.
      I've put the code onto github. This module is compatible with ProcessWire 3.
      Steps to usage:
      Download the module's zip from github (switch to the pw3 branche beforehand if you want to test on PW 3.x) and unpack it into site/modules Click "Modules" -> "Refresh" in the admin Click "Install" for MediaLibrary For testing, create a page with the MediaLibrary template under home (give it an expressive title like 'Global Media') and add some images and files Edit a differnt page with a CKEditor field and add a link and an image to see the MediaLibrary features in action (see the screencap for details) Optionally, go into the module settings for MediaLibrary Note: this module is far from being as elaborate as Kongondo's Media Manager (and doesn't plan to be). If you need a feature-rich solution for integrated media management, give it a look.
      Feel free to change the settings for MediaFiles and MediaImages fields, just keep the type as multiple.
      There are some not-so-pretty hacks for creating and inserting the correct markup, which could probably be changed to use standard input fields, though I'm a bit at a loss right now how to get it to work. I've also still got to take a look at error handling before I can call it fit for production. All feedback and pointers are appreciated (that's also why I post this in the development section).

      Edit 09.03.2016 / version 0.0.4: there's now also a "Media" admin page with a shortcut to quickly add a new library.

      Edit 01.05.2016:
      Version 0.0.8:
      - The module now supports nested media libraries (all descendants of eligible media libraries are also selectable in link/image picker).
      - There's a MediaLibrary::getPageMediaLibraries method you can hook after to modify the array of available libraries.
      - You can switch between (default) select dropdowns or radio boxes in the module configuration of MediaLIbrary to choose libraries.
      Edit 10.10.2018:
      Version 0.1.3:
      - Dropped compatibility for ProcessWire legacy versions by adding namespaces
      - Allow deletion of libraries from the Media overview admin page
      - Added an option to hide media libraries from the page tree (optionally also for superusers)

      This module corrects a few things that I find awkward about the "Add New Template" workflow in the PW admin. I opened a wishlist topic a while back because it would good to resolve some of these things in the core, but this module is a stopgap for now.
      Originally I was going to share these as a few standalone hooks, but decided to bundle them together in a configurable module instead.
      Add Template Enhancements
      A module for ProcessWire CMS/CMF. Adds some efficiency enhancements when adding or cloning templates via admin.

      Features
      Derive label from name when new template added: if you like to give each of your templates a label then this feature can save some time. The label can be added automatically when templates are added in admin, in admin/API, or not at all. There are options for underscore/hyphen replacement and capitalisation of the label. Edit template after add: when adding only a single template, the template is automatically opened for editing after it is added. Copy field contexts when cloning: this copies the field contexts (a.k.a. overrides such as column width, label and description) from the source template to the new template when using the "Duplicate/clone this template?" feature on the Advanced tab. Copy field contexts when duplicating fields: this copies the field contexts if you select the "Duplicate fields used by another template" option when adding a new template. Usage
      Install the Add Template Enhancements module.
      Configure the module settings according to what suits you.

      As I mentioned in this issue, I've create a new textformatter for ParsedownExtraPlugin, which adds some oomph to your markdown.
      Repo: Parsedown Extra Plugin
      Unlike the built-in textformatter for Parsedown and Parsedown Extra, this should be used when you want to use Extra with additional configuration/customisation.
      Some examples:
      ### Test {.heading} - A [external link](https://google.com/){.google} with `google` as a class that opens in a new tab if the config property is set. - [Another link](/page){target=_blank} that opens in a new tab even though it isn't external. ```html .html <p>Test</p> ``` There's some config options available to you, such as setting attributes on all/external images and links, setting table and table-cell alignment classes, adjusting footnote classes and IDs, adding <code> attributes to their parent <pre> elements, and changing the <code> class if your syntax highlighter does not use language-*.
      I was thinking about adding the ability to make links open in a new tab by appending a plus to the link syntax, but only external links should be opening in a new tab anyway. Further, this would add extra, unnecessary processing time.
      Please let me know if you bump into any problems. ☺️

      TextformatterTypographer (0.4.0 Beta)
      A ProcessWire wrapper for the awesome PHP Typography class, originally authored by KINGdesk LLC and enhanced by Peter Putzer in wp-Typography. Like Smartypants, it supercharges text fields with enhanced typography and typesetting, such as smart quotations, hyphenation in 59 languages, ellipses, copyright-, trade-, and service-marks, math symbols, and more.
      Learn more on my blog
      It's based on the PHP-Typography library found over at wp-Typography, which is more frequently updated and feature rich that its original by KINGdesk LLC.
      The module itself is fully configurable. I haven't done extensive testing, but there is nothing complex about this, and so I only envisage a typographical bug here and there, if any.
      Please do test it out and let me know what you think.
      Also note that I have indicated support for PW 2.8, but I haven't tested there as yet. This was built on PW 3.0.42/62.

      Jumplinks for ProcessWire
      Release: 1.5.50
      Jumplinks is an enhanced version of the original ProcessRedirects by Antti Peisa.
      The Process module manages your permanent and temporary redirects (we'll call these "jumplinks" from now on, unless in reference to redirects from another module), useful for when you're migrating over to ProcessWire from another system/platform. Each jumplink supports wildcards, shortening the time needed to create them.
      Unlike similar modules for other platforms, wildcards in Jumplinks are much easier to work with, as Regular Expressions are not fully exposed. Instead, parameters wrapped in curly braces are used - these are described in the documentation.
      Under Development: 2.0, to be powered by FastRoute
      As of version 1.5.0, Jumplinks requires at least ProcessWire 2.6.1 to run.
      View on GitLab
      Download via the Modules Directory
      Read the docs
      Features
      The most prominent features include:
      Basic jumplinks (from one fixed route to another) Parameter-based wildcards with "Smart" equivalents Mapping Collections (for converting ID-based routes to their named-equivalents without the need to create multiple jumplinks) Destination Selectors (for finding and redirecting to pages containing legacy location information) Timed Activation (activate and/or deactivate jumplinks at specific times) 404-Monitor (for creating jumplinks based on 404 hits) Additionally, the following features may come in handy:
      Stale jumplink management Legacy domain support for slow migrations An importer (from CSV or ProcessRedirects) Feedback & Feature Requests
      I’d love to know what you think of this module. Please provide some feedback on the module as a whole, or even regarding smaller things that make it whole. Also, please feel free to submit feature requests and their use-cases.
      Note: Features requested so far have been added to the to-do list, and will be added to 2.0, and not the current dev/master branches.
      Open Source

      Jumplinks is an open-source project, and is free to use. In fact, Jumplinks will always be open-source, and will always remain free to use. Forever. If you would like to support the development of Jumplinks, please consider making a small donation via PayPal.
