Simple Contact Form

Recommended Posts

@Travo: Thanks for the PR, I applied it to the develop and master branch. If you want to use the module with ProcessWire 3.x, you have to checkout the feature/devns branch of the module.

Hi there,

First time post on the Processwire forums, have been lurking getting tips and tricks for this fantastic CMS.

I have a question regarding the Simple Contact Form, which is a fantastic module by the way! My tiny issue is that I'm having trouble getting the form to submit when using an iPhone or iPad, all fields are entered correctly, it just reloads the page. Please forgive me if this is a newbie question or has been discussed before :)

Hi @darcemac and welcome to ProcessWire!

I assume you're using ProcessWire version 2.x. If the page reloads: are there any messages that something is missing? If there isn't any hint at all, I guess the submission is treated as spam. Please check the simplecontactform log file to receive detailed information about what's missing. I know, this isn't the best behaviour and I changed it already in the new version supporting ProcessWire 3.x.

Hi @justb3a, 

Thanks for the quick response, really appreciate it!

There aren't any error messages, just a clean page refresh. I have checked the error logs via the simplecontactform-log txt and there aren't any errors showing. 

I thought it might be because the IOS versions were a bit old. I will look into updating to ProcessWire 3.x to fix this, just scared of breaking things :)

Cheers for your help!

I'm using this module with PW 2.7.2.

When submitting a form I get a success message but in the LOG file it says  [ERROR] Mail has not been sent to ... thus, the message is never delivered.

Note: I am running PW on localhost via XAMPP. Does this module work under this conditions?

Thanks in advance.

It's likely your problem is due to a XAMPP/sendmail configuration issue rather than the module. You can rule out the module by attempting to send a test email using PHP's mail() function.

<?php
$subject="Test mail";
$to="myaddress@somedomain.com";
$body="This is a test mail";
if (mail($to,$subject,$body)) {
    echo "Mail sent successfully.";
} else {
    echo "Mail not sent.";
}

I found I had to jump through some hoops to get mail working in XAMPP. Here are some notes I made for getting mail to send via Gmail's SMTP server.

Quote

php.ini
-------
SMTP=smtp.gmail.com
smtp_port=587
sendmail_from=myaddress@gmail.com
sendmail_path="\"D:\xampp\sendmail\sendmail.exe\" -t"


sendmail.ini
-------
smtp_server=smtp.gmail.com
smtp_port=587
smtp_ssl=tls
auth_username=myaddress@gmail.com
auth_password=mypassword
force_sender=myaddress@gmail.com


sendmail.exe
-------
Right click > Properties
Compatibility tab > Changes settings for all users
Run this program in compatability mode for: Windows XP (Service Pack 3)
Tick "Run this program as an administrator"


Gmail

Hi,

I installed  simple contact form module and Wire Mail Smtp module. they are working fine.

What i want to learn is

1- how can i use ajax? i tried example at the tutorial but not working on me. there must be something related with class names, i am not good at this.

 <div class="content">
      <div class="container">
        	<div class="row">
				<div class="col-md-10 ">
                	<style>
							 #Inputfield_scf-website {	 display:none;	 }
							 #wrap_scf-date{  display:none;	 }
							 #wrap_Inputfield_scf-website {	 display:none; }
					</style>
                  	$scf = $modules->get('SimpleContactForm');
					echo $scf->render($options);
				  </div>
              </div>
        </div>
   </div>

this is my code

for ajax code

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

and for php

<?php
if ($config->ajax) {
  $modules->get('SimpleContactForm')->render();
} else {
  // html, header, nav etc.
  $modules->get('SimpleContactForm')->render();
  // html, footer etc.
}

 there must be some modifications to work this code. but i dont know how to do. 

my web site: https://www.sediremlak.com/en/contact/

 

 

 

 

 

2- second question is how can i use my own css for simple contact form?

is there a easy way to modify css? 

when i just put echo $scf->render($options); 

default options are rendering. is there a way to use instead of render function?

 

sorry for my dummy questions. i would be appriciate if any one help me.

@Kemal It's not that easy how to answer your questions best. It seems that you're missing some basic knowledge about css/js. I wouldn't recommend to write inline styles. I would suggest using a single css file (or put it in the header of the html file). You can include this css file after the bootstrap one, this way you're able to override styles and add your own. Addressing the elements using classes lets you change the css. This module doesn't add any css, it just outputs a html structure with some basic classes. You can change the classes / html structure by passing different `$options`. I don't know why the ajax call isn't working, I guess the click on the submit button isn't triggered. I would add some debug statements to the javascript.

Look at your  anitSpamCountAdditionalInputs. I have not played with the version that is compatible for PW 3.0, but I run into this message often and usually its just an oversite of fields. Also in your markup, make sure you name fields match those in the template or else you will get that message.

Hey @RyanJ Where is this field/setting? I don't see it anywhere.

It may not be in the latest version, but if so, I am assuming it would be in the same place in the modules settings page at the bottom under Spam. By default there are 5 spam fields. From your list, you are missing a few (again, this may have changed in the latest version of the module). Glancing at the latest documentation, it looks like you are missing " scf-website " field.  

Also, check the names on your input fields in your markup. A typo could throw the error too I believe.

yes. Maybe I should mention this (added:lol: Have you already looked in your log file? The detailed reason should be listed there.

 

@alexmercenary Which version of ProcessWire and SimpleContactForm do you use? There is no anitSpamCountAdditionalInputs in the latest version. In earlier versions you had to write the form/html on your own, now the module generates the form. So there is no need to specify this because you're not able to add more fields as needed. But I guess, you're not using the latest version?! EDIT: Found and fixed it!

Installing the module on another site, i get the following errror message:

Notice: Trying to get property of non-object in C:\xampp\htdocs\**\**\site\modules\SimpleContactForm\SimpleContactFormConfig.php on line 125

At which point do you get this error message? After clicking install? Or after submitting module configuration data?

It seems you choose an invalid field in the section `Select page name fields` (which shouldn't be possible, I tried different variants but cannot reproduce the issue). Are you able to reproduce this behaviour? Does the field you've selected have a field name and of which type is it?

Hello,

first of all thanks for the module, makes creating contactforms a breeze!

I have a just a minor question, is it possible to alter the markup of the submit button?

I tried it like this:
 

$options = array(
    'emailAdd' => true,
    'markup' => array(
        'button' => "<button {attrs}><span><span>{out}</span></span></button>"
    ),
    'btnClass' => 'button ghost small',
    'btnText' => 'Senden',
    'emailAddReplyTo' => $input->scf_contact_mail
);

But the markup part, wasen't applied to the form.

Is there a way, I know I could archive whtat I want also with css but I'd rather like to have consistant buttons.

Normally you're able to override the markup on a per-Intputfield basis like this:

'markup' => array(
   // @see: https://github.com/processwire/ProcessWire/blob/master/wire/core/InputfieldWrapper.php#L44
  'InputfieldSubmit' => array(
    // any of the properties above to override on a per-Inputifeld basis
  )
),

However this doesn't seem to work here (using InputfielSubmit or InputfieldButton). But you can override the `render` function of class `InputfieldSubmit` (for example in `init.php`):

$this->addHook('InputfieldSubmit::render', function(HookEvent $event) {
  if ($this->page->template->name === 'contact') { // adapt template name to compare with
    $parent = (object)$event->object;
    $attrs  = $parent->getAttributesString();
    $value = $parent->entityEncode($parent->attr('value'));
    $out = "<button $attrs><span><span>$value</span></span></button>";
    $event->return = $out; 
  }
});

How does one change the page it's redirected to after submission. 

Just to be sure: You want to redirect to another page after successfully submitting the form data? This is not possible at the moment, but shouldn't be that difficult to implement.

      LogMaintenance
      A simple ProcessWire module to give some maintenance control over log files. I found myself often having lots of log files for different things that can grow more or less quickly to a size where they can be difficult to maintain. The built in Logger of PW does a good job of giving you the possibility to delete or prune logs. But it has to be done manually and sometimes a log grows into millions of lines, which makes it often impossible to even prune it as it's too large.
      LogMaintenance uses LazyCron to run the maintenance task and there's several settings you can setup on a global or per log basis.
      Archive: will create zip files for each log file in logs/archive/ folder and add the log each time the maintenance is run to a subfolder containing the datetime.
      Lines: keeps logs to a certain number of lines 
      Days: keeps the log to a certain number of days
      Bytes: keeps the log to a certain amount of bytes
      Each setting is checked from top down, the first setting to contain something is used. So if you check the "Archive" option, all other settings are ignored and logs are archived everytime the LazyCron is executed. If you want to keep your logs to a certain amount of bytes just leave all other settings to 0 or blank.
      Per Log Settings
      There's a textarea that you can use to setup a config for a specific log file one per line. All the logs you define here ignore the global settings above. The syntax for the settings is:
      logname:[archive]:[lines]:[days]:[bytes] 
      errors:1:0:0:0 // would archive the errors log messages:0:10000:0:0 // will prune the errors log to 10000 lines  
      The module can be found on github for you to check out. It's still fresh and I'm currently testing.

      Fieldtype Page IDs is a third party Fieldtype that, simply put, stores Page references as integers (Page IDs).
      This fieldtype was built as a quick and dirty workaround for Page Reference fields' inability handle self-references due to circular reference issues. A project I've been working on for a while now includes a combination of RepeaterMatrix content blocks and tagging/categorization system that would've resulted in a lot of duplicate pages (and plenty of unnecessary manual work for content editors) had I used built-in Page Reference fields, and thus a new Fieldtype felt like the most sensible approach.
      Fieldtype Page IDs was designed to be loosely compatible with Page References in order to make conversions between the two feasible, but it is quite limited feature wise:
      largely due to the fact that stored values are actually just integers with no connection to Pages whatsoever some advanced selectors and related features are not supported, and page values can't be directly accessed configuration settings are limited to the bare essentials (selector string and Inputfield class) only a handful of Inputfields (AsmSelect, Checkboxes, Text) are (currently) supported Anyway, in case you need to store Page IDs (and Page IDs only) and are happy with the limitations mentioned above, feel free to give this Fieldtype a try. It has been working fine for me in one particular project, but hasn't been tested that much, so please tread carefully – and let me know if you run into any issues.

      This is a lightweight alternative to other newsletter & newsletter-subscription modules.
      You can find the Module in the Modules directory and on Github
      It can subscribe, update, unsubscribe & delete a user in a list in Mailchimp with MailChimp API 3.0. It does not provide any forms or validation, so you can feel free to use your own. To protect your users, it does not save any user data in logs or sends them to an admin.
      This module fits your needs if you...
      ...use Mailchimp as your newsletter / email-automation tool ...want to let users subscribe to your newsletter on your website ...want to use your own form, validation and messages (with or without the wire forms) ...don't want any personal user data saved in any way in your ProcessWire environment (cf. EU data regulation terms) ...like to subscribe, update, unsubscribe or delete users to/from different lists ...like the Mailchimp UI for creating / sending / reviewing email campaigns *I have only tested it with PHP 7.x so far, so use on owners risk
      EDIT:
      I've updated the module to 0.0.4. I removed the instructions from this forum, so I don't have to maintain it on multiple places. Just checkout the readme on github 🙂
      If you have questions or like to contribute, just post a reply or create an issue or pr on github.

      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.

      Hej,
      A module which helps including Photoswipe and brings some modules for rendering gallery markup. Feedback highly appreciated
      (Also pull requests are appreciated 😉 - have a new Job now and don't work a lot with ProcessWire anymore, yet, feel free to contact me here or on GitHub, Im'm still "online"!)

      Modules directory: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/markup-processwire-photoswipe
      .zip download: https://github.com/blynx/MarkupProcesswirePhotoswipe/archive/master.zip
      You can add a photoswipe enabled thumbnail gallery / lightbox to your site like this. Just pass an image field to the renderGallery method:
      <?php $pwpswp = $modules->get('Pwpswp'); echo $pwpswp->renderGallery($page->nicePictures); Options are provided like so:
      <?php $galleryOptions = [ 'imageResizerOptions' => [ 'size' => '500x500' 'quality' => 70, 'upscaling' => false, 'cropping' => false ], 'loresResizerOptions' => [ 'size' => '500x500' 'quality' => 20, 'upscaling' => false, 'cropping' => false ], 'pswpOptions' => (object) [ 'shareEl' => false, 'indexIndicatorSep' => ' von ', 'closeOnScroll' => false ] ]; echo $pswp->renderGallery($page->images, $galleryOptions); More info about all that is in the readme: https://github.com/blynx/MarkupProcesswirePhotoswipe
      What do you think? Any ideas, bugs, critique, requests?
      cheers
      Steffen
