Simple Contact Form

Recommended Posts

Good day! This module is so promising, but I just cannot manage to install it. I upload it like other modules with classname, install with no error massages. Then inlude the

$modules->get('SimpleContactForm')->render();

code in my contacts template and get the "Error: Exception: No Template was found." error as an administrator. The template was not created. I did set site/templates to 777 (tried it on local Windows and on remote Linux server). What am I doing wrong? Are there supposed to be errors when the template cannot be created?

Confirmed, but I see that when I save the module settings, it says it can't create the templates. If I refresh from that error, the files get created... and then it all just works.

I'm really sorry, but I can't get it to work. I'm new at processwire, so maybe I did something wrong. I tried to follow all instructions and what I get and see on my contact page is an embedded form, with an unstyled list  of input files (which is ok, styling will not be the problem).

If I click the (empty or filled out) form, the front page of my processwire is loading. And that's it. No mail sent, no error or success message. 

Possibly there is an error in my template. The only difference I made is – instead of

$content = $modules->get('SimpleContactForm')->render();

I had to change to 

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

In my contact template.

Maybe this causes the error?

Maybe someone can help? 

Thank you very much!

@Matzze: You installed the module the right way and everything works as expected. This module provides some spam protection methods - and if this fails you will be redirected to the root page (I should add this to the readme!). Have a look at site ▸ assets ▸ logs ▸ simplecontactform-spam-log.txt. I guess there is an error like "2015-03-30 13:38:50 Date difference is out of range." The reason is antiSpamTimeMin (It parses the time the user needs to fill out the form. If the time is below a minimum time, the submission is treated as Spam.) in module settings.

The html list is unstyled, you could/should change the html structure to your own needs as well as adding custom css.

@Mike Anthony, @Ivan Gretsky : I know this is not the best solution, if somebody has an idea to improve this, just let me know! It's really important to enter and save the module settings first because depending on this the template(s) will be created.

@justb3a: I am still a little confised about the connection between the inputfields in thr template and in the config. I do not know why but I thought that I can simply add fields in the config (separated by commas) and the will get rendered in the template. But it does not work this way in my case. Could you please explain that a bit.

New version 0.1.1 - improved template handling as well as adding optional clear up functionality for uninstalling the module.


  • creating/updating templates after submitting the module settings
  • add and/or remove fields works but you have to check the html structure manually
  • additional checkbox for uninstall: "If you check the following box all data containing files as well as database content will be permanently erased with no chance for recovery. It's recommended to make a backup before uninstalling this module."

@Ivan Gretsky: Now you can add/remove fields in the config (separated by comma). But make sure to check your html structure because I do not know your html structure. It's not that easy to determine the position to insert/remove code.

hi,

i'm getting a sytax error ( Parse Error: syntax error, unexpected '[' (line 1151... ) in the SimpleContactForm.module after installation.

When i change line 1151 into ...end($split),1, 0... there is another error occurring ( Call to undefined function boolval() (line 316... )

after commenting that line out, the module works

PW 2.5.24

php 5.3.29

can you reproduce that?

@Christophe: Thanks now the links should work. The processwire module directory imports the readme from github. The problem is that I have to use absolute links in my github readme to make them work there. Relative links get the process wire module directory prepended (for example [installation](doc/installation.md)leads to modules.processwire.com/modules/simple-contact-form/doc/installation.md which does not exist). It's a bit annoying because an absolute link includes the name of the current branch which has to be master. And so I'm not able to test it before making a new release. The same applies for images.

@justb3a

had some issues; spent about 2 hrs trying to get this to work; some of the documentation does need improvement, for example it should say to echo the module, or the module should echo.

for one, there should be a way to disable the whole spam thing, besides putting in the ip address.

makes it hard to test;

sometimes i'm trying to test this and it's redirecting to the homepage, sometimes the form just shows again with the fields filled in, i have no idea what is wrong; and then i'm trying to do a simple form and change the markup but it either seems to break, or it triggers the spam thing.

the message area should be a textarea; seems that changing from input to textarea also was messing things up;

i appreciate all of the hard work that went into this, just seems that it could use some additional improvements and some better documentation..

for now i'll have to stick with formbuilder for this site, but have somee friends who need to use this; so we'll have to sort out this textarea thing, and also how to completely disable the spam thing. plus i can fill out a form in way less than 1 minute, so how can that be a real spam prevention technique; doesn't make so much sense; maybe consider some simpler spam prevention like honeypot...

thanks for listening.

had some issues; spent about 2 hrs trying to get this to work; some of the documentation does need improvement, for example it should say to echo the module, or the module should echo.

It should be clear that the module should echo, I removed the echo keyword from my documentation because if you download for example ProcessWire, it contains some basic templates and you will need $content = $modules->get('SimpleContactForm')->render(); to output the form. So if you use a template prepend file or if you use for example TemplateDataProviders it differs.

for one, there should be a way to disable the whole spam thing, besides putting in the ip address.

I think about that, for now just enter antiSpamTimeMin = 0 (Maybe I should set this as default?), antiSpamTimeMax = 1000 and antiSpamPerDay=1000.

makes it hard to test;

sometimes i'm trying to test this and it's redirecting to the homepage, sometimes the form just shows again with the fields filled in, i have no idea what is wrong; and then i'm trying to do a simple form and change the markup but it either seems to break, or it triggers the spam thing.

This modules creates two log files (→ documentation), have a look there to figure out what is wrong. If you were redirected to the homepage (→ documentation) the reason is always spam protection. If you change the markup make sure to maintain the names of the fields and you have to hide website(honeypot field) and submitted (→ documentation). If you change the number of inputs manually (adding or deleting a field), you have to adapt antiSpamCountAdditionalInputs (→ documentation).

the message area should be a textarea; seems that changing from input to textarea also was messing things up;

You enter the fields as a comma separated list, maybe there will be more textarea fields like `message`. How should I know which one should be a textarea and which one a simple input or maybe a date input (for example). This module provides some templates as starting point, you have to change / adapt the html! The honeypot field is also displayed because it's better to add a surrounding div assigning a class and hide it using CSS. 

i appreciate all of the hard work that went into this, just seems that it could use some additional improvements and some better documentation..

Feel free to contribute! You could at least help me to improve the documentation!

for now i'll have to stick with formbuilder for this site, but have somee friends who need to use this; so we'll have to sort out this textarea thing, and also how to completely disable the spam thing. plus i can fill out a form in way less than 1 minute, so how can that be a real spam prevention technique; doesn't make so much sense; maybe consider some simpler spam prevention like honeypot...

Nobody has to use this module! Go ahead and use formbuilder. You can fill out the form in less than one minute, just set timeMin = 0! It's the same as disabling spam protection. There is much more spam protection and of course there is already a honeypot field.

ok thanks for all your help and info- i will try it again, i didn't know anything about honeypot and that the website field was the honeypot must have somehow missed that in the docs.

so can i just change the message input to a textarea, and it should work i guess. i will test and post back results.

Hi there. This is a really nice script, and it works really fine! Is there a possibility to use it more than once in my project? I nee a simple contact form and more customized one for other requests. Can i "duplicate" the full script it maybe?

Thanks for helping!

At the moment there is no way to use it more than once in a project. I guess duplicating is not that easy because you have to adapt all template and field names as well.

I only can send an input type textarea with a maximum length of 255 chars. In your module you use sanitizer->text. Per default every Text of any inputfield will be truncated at 255 chars. It would nice if i can send 16384 chars in this type of input field (textarea). Is there any solution to fix this? Thanks.

So - kind a quick&dirty - but that solves my problem first.

Line 433 of SimpleContactForm.module

 if($inputfield == "Nachricht"){
        $message[] = $inputfield . ': ' . $this->sanitizer->textarea($this->input->post->{$inputfield});
      }else{
        $message[] = $inputfield . ': ' . $this->sanitizer->text($this->input->post->{$inputfield});
      }

& Line 481

 if($inputfield == "Nachricht"){
              $newEntry->{'scf_' . $inputfield} = $this->sanitizer->textarea($this->input->post->{$inputfield});
            }else{
              $newEntry->{'scf_' . $inputfield} = $this->sanitizer->text($this->input->post->{$inputfield});
            }

Anyway - mayby you could consider this in one of the following versions.

Do you use the latest version? I know this issue and fixed it already some weeks ago. Have a look at github. The only occurence of $this->sanitizer->text is on line 417 in the function validateFields. Maybe I should change this as well to textarea.

Hello,

i'm new to processwire, but i really like it. This add on is a great enhancement.

How can i change the text in a submitted e-mail? Example

Hi Congomonster,

you have to change the fieldname. in your case scf_fullName in e.g. scf_Nachname. Be carefull. the prefix scf_ is important.
And you also have to change the values ( input - Tag ) in your form. But here you go without the prefix!
Don´t forget to adapt the fieldnames in your modulconfiguration. also without the prefix.

@itsberni: Have a look into you php.ini file. There is an entry for max_execution_time. Check that value und increase it. And also have a look at max_input_time and memory_limit.

@congomonster: Maybe I should provide a way to write your own email content using placeholders. Then you would be able to add additional text as well. 

Edit: I opened an issue regarding that feature on github, so I keep it in mind  ;)

      Jumplinks for ProcessWire
      Release: 1.5.56
      Composer: rockett/jumplinks
      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.
      Enjoy! :)

      As threatened in Ryan's announcement for 3.0.139, I built a little module for sliding toggles as a replacement for checkboxes. Styling of the input is CSS3 only (with all the usual caveats about older browsers), no JS necessary, and may still be a bit "rough around the edges", so to speak, since I didn't have much time for testing on different devices or brushing things up enough so I'd feel comfortable pushing it to the module directory. But here's the link to the GitHub repo for now:
      InputfieldSlideToggle
      Fieldtype and Inputfield that implements smartphone-style toggles as replacement for checkbox inputs. The visualization is CSS-only, no additional JS necessary.
      Status
      Still very alpha, use with caution!
      Features / Field Settings
      Size
      You can render the toggles in four different sizes: small, medium, large and extra large.
      Off Color
      Currently, "unchecked" toggles can be displayed either in grey (default) or red.
      On Color
      "Checked" toggles can be rendered in one of these colors: blue (default), black, green, grey, orange or red.

      Hi Guys
      I needed to add extended functionalities for the InputfieldDatetime Module (module is from processwire version 2.7.3) because of a Request of Customer.
      So I duplicated the module and placed it under /site/modules/.
      I have added 3 new Settings to the InputfieldDatetime Module.
      1. Day Restriction - Restrict different days based on weekdays selection (e.g. saturday, sunday) - WORKING

       
      2. Time Slots - Define Time slots based on custom Integer Value (max is 60 for 1 hour) - WORKING

       
      3. Time Range Rules per Weekday - Define a minTime and MaxTime per Weekday (e.g. Opening Hours of a Restaurant) - NOT WORKING PROPERLY

       
      The Problem
      Time Slots and Day Restriction working fine so far. But the Time Range Rules per Weekday doesn't work right.
      What should happen is, that when you click on a date, it should update the minTime and maxTime of the Time Select.
      But the change on the select only happens if you select a date 2 times or when you select a date 1 time and then close the datepicker and reopen it again.
      The time select doesn't get change when you select a date 1 time and don't close the picker.
      Here is the whole extended InputfieldDatetime Module.
      The Files that I have changed:
      InputfieldDatetime.module InputfieldDatetime.js jquery-ui-timepicker-addon.js (https://trentrichardson.com/examples/timepicker/) - updated it to the newest version, because minTime and maxTime Option was only available in the new version  
      Thats the Part of the JS that is not working correctly:
      if(datetimerules && datetimerules.length){ options.onSelect = function(date, inst) { var day = $(this).datetimepicker("getDate").getDay(); day = day.toString(); var mintime = $(this).attr('data-weekday'+day+'-mintime'); var maxtime = $(this).attr('data-weekday'+day+'-maxtime'); console.log("weekday: "+day); console.log("minTime: "+mintime); console.log("maxTime: "+maxtime); var optionsAll = $(this).datetimepicker( "option", "all" ); optionsAll.minTime = mintime; optionsAll.maxTime = maxtime; $(this).datetimepicker('destroy'); $(this).datetimepicker(optionsAll); $(this).datetimepicker('refresh'); //$.datepicker._selectDate($(this).attr("id"),date); //$.datepicker._base_getDateDatepicker(); // var inst = $.datepicker._getInst($(this)); // $.datepicker._updateDatepicker(inst); /*$(this).datetimepicker('destroy'); InputfieldDatetimeDatepicker($(this), mintime, maxtime); $(this).datetimepicker('refresh'); */ // $(this).datetimepicker('option', {minTime: mintime, maxTime: maxtime}); } } Can you have a look and find out what the Problem is?

      This module tracks changes, additions, removals etc. of public (as in "not under admin") pages of your site. Like it's name says, it doesn't attempt to be a version control system or anything like that - just a log of what's happened.
      At the moment it's still a work in progress and will most likely be a victim of many ruthless this-won't-work-let's-try-that-instead cycles, but I believe I've nailed basic functionality well enough to post it here.. so, once again, I'll be happy to hear any comments you folks can provide
      https://modules.processwire.com/modules/process-changelog/
      https://github.com/teppokoivula/ProcessChangelog
      How does it work?
      Exactly like it's (sort of) predecessor, Process Changelog actually consists of two modules: Process Changelog and Process Changelog Hooks. Hooks module exists only to serve main module by hooking into various functions within Pages class, collecting data of performed operations, refining it and keeping up a log of events in it's own custom database table (process_changelog.) Visible part is managed by Process Changelog, which provides users a (relatively) pretty view of the contents of said log table.
      How do you use it?
      When installed this module adds new page called Changelog under Admin > Setup which provides you with a table view of collected data and basic filtering tools See attached screenshots to get a general idea about what that page should look like after a while.
      For detailed installation instructions etc. see README.md.

      Please note that the software is not yet intended for use in a production system (alpha version).
      If you like, you can also submit feature requests and suggestions for improvement. I also accept pull requests.
      ---- INITIAL POST FROM 2019-05-25 ----
      I wanted to let you know that I am currently working on a new ProcessWire module that fully integrates the Snipcart Shopping Cart System into ProcessWire. (this is a customer project, so I had to postpone the development of my other module GroupMailer).
      The new module SnipWire offers full integration of the Snipcart Shopping Cart System into ProcessWire.
      Here are some highlights:
      simple setup with (optional) pre-installed templates, product fields, sample products (quasi a complete shop system to get started immediately) store dashboard with all data from the snipcart system (no change to the snipcart dashboard itself required) Integrated REST API for controlling and querying snipcart data webhooks to trigger events from Snipcart (new order, new customer, etc.) multi currency support self-defined/configurable tax rates etc. Development is already well advanced and I plan to release the module in the next 2-3 months.
      I'm not sure yet if this will be a "Pro" module or if it will be made available for free.
      I would be grateful for suggestions and hints!
      (please have a look at the screenshots to get an idea what I'm talking about)
