Simple Contact Form

224 posts in this topic

Hello justb3a,

at the moment I try to build my first website with processwire and so I need a simple contactform.

I found your module and it works fine. But I have a problem to fit the module to my bootstrap form.

Can you explain me (i'm a beginner) how i can realize this. This would be wonderful.

Thanks and many greetings from Berlin

hello gebeer,

thank you for your response.

I tried to change it, but in the moment it is not so easy for me. To many new things I have to learn.

Maybe you can help me.

I tried to put the class: col-sm-8 to an input field. How can I do this? Changing the "item_content" in the class-array didn't work. 

 

   Webbrowser:  <input id="Inputfield_scf_email" class=" required" name="scf_email" type="text" size="60">

Maybe you have an example for a correct array?

 

Many Greetings

Lena

Hi,

it seems that `item_content` only apply to inputfields of type InputfieldWrapper and InputfieldPage. 

If you use something like `_init.php` you can add a hook there:

$this->addHookBefore('Inputfield::render', function(HookEvent $event) {
  if ($this->page->template->name === 'contact') { // adapt template name to compare with
    $inputfield = $event->object;
    $inputfield->addClass('col-sm-8');
    $event->return = $inputfield;
  }
});

Hi all!

This module works great and I don't have any errors. I was just wondering if there is any option to send an e-mail with the data filled in the form in a template. So you receive at the end an e-mail with a logo and maybe more adjustments. Or should I add the logo in the module file to the message and maybe style it there too?

-EDIT-

My contractor haves an alias of a gmail account. So the e-mail adres looks like name@companyname.com but it is from google. Now I want to send the emails to that email address, but he receives nothing. Also not in the spambox. Is it possible that this doesn't work because the emailadress is an alias or is it something else? 

To present more information, the website I am currently working on was a few years ago moved from a hosting service to another hosting company. Now I noticed that the email in the current hosting application has the wrong records, but the e-mailadresses are still working and don't experience any problems, except for not receiving the contact form e-mail.

Does anyone know how this is possible, is it because the records are wrong (but emailaddressess still work fine) or is it a bug in the module?

Thanks in advance,

~Harmen

Hello

is there a way to make some fields required ?

Sure, you only have to check the required checkbox in the field settings.

justb3a, thanks for such a lovely script! :-)

This works perfectly with SimpleContactForm 1.0.0 on Processwire 3.0.42

<?php $scf = $modules->get('SimpleContactForm'); 
    $options = array(
	'btnClass' => 'button fit big',
	'btnText' => 'SEND MESSAGE!',
	'successMessage'  => 'Message Sent!',
	'errorMessage'  => 'Sorry - message send error!'
);
echo $scf->render($options); ?>

But if you just use this (without specifiying the successmessage) e.g.

<?php $scf = $modules->get('SimpleContactForm'); 
$options = array(
	'btnClass' => 'button fit big',
	'btnText' => 'SEND MESSAGE!'
);
echo $scf->render($options); ?>

The form processes (send) correctly, but the form output on the web page after sending is shown as:

<p class='form--success--message'>SEND MESSAGE!</p>

Showing the 'btnText', rather than the correct 'default success message'.

Have I missed someting obvious?

I've posted just incase anyone else is having the same issues.

@dab Could you please pull the latest version from branch develop? I fixed this already some time ago but haven't released it yet.

For some sites the "spam message" might not be approprate :lol:

So I changed line 215 in SimpleContactForm.module to

            $this->_("Sorry, but your message didn't pass our %s test. Please try another %s."),

and change lines 155 (& the following) & 172 (& the following) in \lib\SpamProtection.php to

      $this->_('spam'),

and

      $this->_('time'),

 

So the message will read " Sorry, but your message didn't pass our spam test. Please try another time. "

Thanks again @justb3a

@dab It's not that good idea to change something inside a third-party module (or, even worse, in the core). If you update the module, all your changes get lost.
I would suggest translating the values  – which will be inserted – with 'spam' and 'time'. You could also translate "Sorry, but your message didn't pass our %s test. Please try another %s." with "Sorry, but your message didn't pass our spam test. Please try another time.". Therefore I made them translatable. ^_^

Hello, Im having some problems with simple contact form styling. I tried everything but just don't get it. I went throu THIS pages but can't figure it out what should I actually do to make it the way I want. I tried and played with this but no success. Im not a coder but understand some ...

hi roych,

you should be as clear as possible in your questions. you don't explain what the problem is. you could add screenshots how it is and how it should be. styling is usually done via CSS. answers depend a lot on your setup...

Sorry for not being clear enough. I would like to style my form created in  SimpleContactForm module. But I can't figure it out how from those instructions. Where and how should I change classes in my code.

expl.

My code for showing a form now, looks like this. 

<?php echo $modules->get('SimpleContactForm')->render(); ?>

this is giving me some basic style from PW. How do I change those styles so it would look like the form posted in first post?

I tried and played with this

$scf = $modules->get('SimpleContactForm');

$options = array(
  'markup' => array(
    'list' => "<div {attrs}>{out}</div>",
    'item' => "<p {attrs}>{out}</p>"
  ),
  'classes' => array(
    'form' => 'form form__whatever',
    'list' => 'list-item'
  )
);

echo $scf->render($options);

but can't figure it out how this should work. There is no changes no mather what I do ...  And where is the Style for submit button etc.?

I hope I was more clear this time.

Thank you

R

Your question is about module that has its own support forum. I have moved your thread to that support forum.

Hi,

I've migrated a Processwire site that was running on PW 2.6.1 with SCF 0.1.1 to a new installation of PW 3.0.42 and after I install SCF 1.0.0 I'm getting the following error which breaks the admin:

 

Error: [] operator not supported for strings (line 131 of ...\site\modules\Processwire-SimpleContactForm\SimpleContactForm.module)

Line 131 of that file is ->     foreach (self::$additionalFields as $f) $allFieldsExtended[] = $f;

 

When I remove the [] from that line (which I don't suspect for a second is an actual fix, but at least makes the admin functional again) the module shows as installed and all of my previously created fields appear in red on the settings screen under "Select form fields". Is there something I need to do to those old fields? There's mention of upgrade notes on the first page of the thread here but none of the links work.

I haven't used this module, so not sure about those red fields, but I think the likely correct fix for the operator not supported issue is to to define $allfields in the additional fields at around line 65.

protected $allFields = array();

Thanks, Adrian. That got rid of the error message.

Unfortunately, it seems that a lot of functionality's been lost and with the gaping documentation gaps this isn't going to work for me.

I can't figure the [FAILURE] Number of fields does not match issue at all.

I have 5 fields:-

  • scf_firstname
  • scf_surname
  • scf_email
  • scf_company
  • scf_enquiry

PW ver. 3.0.33

SCF ver. 1.0.0

Any help greatly appreciated.

@Roych

Try this:

$scf = $modules->get('SimpleContactForm');

$options = array(
  'btnClass' => 'btn btn-blue btn-effect',
  'btnText' => 'Send',
  'classes' => array(
    'item' => 'input-field'
  )
);

$content .= $scf->render($options);

You need to set the placeholder in the field settings, go to Admin > Setup > Fields > Edit Field: xxx > Tab Input > Placeholder Text.
It's recommended to hide the label using css (label { display: none; }). People which have to use screen readers will reward you ^_^

Unfortunately it's not that easy to add the class form-control to every input field. There is no way to set it globally.
I would suggest using css to achieve what you want:

.input-field input,
.input-field textarea,
.input-field select {
  // your styling goes here
}

Otherwise you have to hook into every render function for every fieldtype you use and pass the class inside the getAttributesString function

@alexmercenary I found a little bug: The module uses a imaginary field named 'date'. Normally there is no 'date' field (naive assumption, I know) and everything works as expected. But if you create a field named 'date' for something else, the condition matches and the form has one more field than desired. The same counted for a field named 'ip'. I just released a new version 1.0.1. Please try if it's working now.

The form just validates every field how it is configured in the field settings. If you want to have email validation, set the field type to email. If you want a field to be required, just check the corresponding checkbox in the field settings. Same counts for html5 validation.

Hiding the website and date field via CSS is not dirty. The website field is already of type hidden, so you just have to hide the corresponding label. The website field is intentional not hidden. It's a trap for spambot. Have a look at the documentation.

I would not recommend doing this. 'allfields' is already declared in the moduleConfig file. If you set it in the module file again, this value will be overwritten and if you render the form all fields are gone. ^_^

Feel free to optimise the documentation! Fixes and suggestions are very welcome!
A lot has been changed since version 0.1.1. I think, this is the page you were looking for, but this is no longer relevant. Because the module now renders the form by itself and no template adaptions are needed any longer. Did you try to render the form (frontend)? If not, please do so. There are some migration functions in the module. If you still want to use this module, please post the input of the column data from table modules where column 'class' equals SimpleContactForm. Furthermore some additional informations would be really good (save messages enabled? fields which should be added, ..).

      Hi,
      just stumbled over a little module that i built for my last project. it helped me to test performance of my rockdatatables module to generate 3000 random json datasets and i want to share it with you. maybe it saves some time for someone.
      https://gitlab.com/baumrock/RockDummyData/
      easy example:
      $rdd = $modules->get('RockDummyData'); for($i=0; $i<15; $i++) { // this has to be inside the for-loop to always get a new dummy $dummy = $rdd->getDummy(); echo date("d.m.Y H:i:s", $dummy->timestamp) . "<br>"; } more advanced:
      $json = new stdClass(); $json->data = array(); $rdd = $modules->get('RockDummyData'); for($i=0; $i<3000; $i++) { // this has to be inside the for-loop to always get a new dummy $dummy = $rdd->getDummy(); $obj = new stdClass(); $obj->name = $dummy->forename . ' ' . $dummy->surname; $obj->position = $dummy->job; $obj->office = $dummy->city; $obj->color = $dummy->color; $obj->start_date = new stdClass(); $obj->start_date->display = date('d.m.Y',$dummy->timestamp); $obj->start_date->sort = $dummy->timestamp; $obj->salary = rand(0,10000); $json->data[] = $obj; } echo json_encode($json); you have to store your random datasets on your own into the /data folder. there are several services for creating all kinds of random data on the web - if you know one service that allows sharing those datasets let me know and i can include common needed data into the module

      Hello!
      I need your assistance please. I purchased the module FormBuilder. Unfortunately, the module discontinued delivering customer submissions to e-mail box specified in the module settings. Direct mailing to the e-mail box works OK. The module settings stays the same and are correct, like "Send e-mail to administrator(s) is checked. The last version of FormBuilder 3.0 has been installed. Please advise how to resolve the issue becase I cannot get orders from customers anymore (((

      As described in this post (https://processwire.com/talk/topic/8551-custom-urls-for-pages/?p=82742) the option 'Name Format Children' under the tab 'Family' in template settings doesn't work properly and also not as expected. I had a look inside the code and made some changes which are working properly, which offers much more options, more consistency and less code too.

      The result is the following. You have 3 Options for generating name and title, which could be combined in endless variations.
      Name is always derived from title, same like creating pages manually.
      type date: if function detects # character anywhere in the string, conversion will be: deletion of # and string will be used as format parameter for PHP date() function type field: if string is a fieldname of the parent page the value of this field will be used type string: if string doesn't fit to the 2 preceeding it will be taken as it is All parts (separated by comma) will be composed in the order of setting. You can use unlimited numbers of parts

      FieldtypeRuntimeMarkup and InputfieldRuntimeMarkup
       
      Modules Directory: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/fieldtype-runtime-markup/
      GitHub: https://github.com/kongondo/FieldtypeRuntimeMarkup
       
      This module allows for custom markup to be dynamically (PHP) generated and output within a page's edit screen (in Admin).
       
      The value for the fieldtype is generated at runtime. No data is saved in the database. The accompanying InputfieldRuntimeMarkup is only used to render/display the markup in the page edit screen.
       
      The field's value is accessible from the ProcessWire API in the frontend like any other field, i.e. it has access to $page and $pages.
       
      The module was commissioned/sponsored by @Valan. Although there's certainly other ways to achieve what this module does, it offers a dynamic and flexible alternative to generating your own markup in a page's edit screen whilst also allowing access to that markup in the frontend. Thanks Valan!
       
      Warning/Consideration
      Although access to ProcessWire's Fields' admin pages is only available to Superusers, this Fieldtype will evaluate and run the custom PHP Code entered and saved in the field's settings (Details tab). Utmost care should therefore be taken in making sure your code does not perform any CRUD operations!! (unless of course that's intentional) The value for this fieldtype is generated at runtime and thus no data is stored in the database. This means that you cannot directly query a RuntimeMarkup field from $pages->find(). Usage and API
       
      Backend
      Enter your custom PHP snippet in the Details tab of your field (it is RECOMMENDED though that you use wireRenderFile() instead. See example below). Your code can be as simple or as complicated as you want as long as in the end you return a value that is not an array or an object or anything other than a string/integer.
       
      FieldtypeRuntimeMarkup has access to $page (the current page being edited/viewed) and $pages. 
       
      A very simple example.
      return 'Hello'; Simple example.
      return $page->title; Simple example with markup.
      return '<h2>' . $page->title . '</h2>'; Another simple example with markup.
      $out = '<h1>hello '; $out .= $page->title; $out .= '</h1>'; return $out; A more advanced example.
      $p = $pages->get('/about-us/')->child('sort=random'); return '<p>' . $p->title . '</p>'; An even more complex example.
      $str =''; if($page->name == 'about-us') { $p = $page->children->last(); $str = "<h2><a href='{$p->url}'>{$p->title}</a></h2>"; } else { $str = "<h2><a href='{$page->url}'>{$page->title}</a></h2>"; } return $str; Rather than type your code directly in the Details tab of the field, it is highly recommended that you placed all your code in an external file and call that file using the core wireRenderFile() method. Taking this approach means you will be able to edit your code in your favourite text editor. It also means you will be able to type more text without having to scroll. Editing the file is also easier than editing the field. To use this approach, simply do:
      return wireRenderFile('name-of-file');// file will be in /site/templates/ If using ProcessWire 3.x, you will need to use namespace as follows:
      return ProcessWire\wireRenderFile('name-of-file'); How to access the value of RuntimeMarkup in the frontend (our field is called 'runtime_markup')
       
      Access the field on the current page (just like any other field)
      echo $page->runtime_markup; Access the field on another page
      echo $pages->get('/about-us/')->runtime_markup; Screenshots
       
      Backend
