The Contact Form Field

The Contact Form Field

The SobiPro Contact Form Field is an application which adds any kind of contact form to an entry.

The Contact Form field comes with four pre-defined contact form templates to easily add a Contact Author, Claim Listing, Report Listing or Reservation Form to the details view of the entries in your directory.

But the Contact Form field is not limited to these contact forms. The Contact Form field gives you the possibility to create any kind of form which meaning is to send via email some information to either the author of an entry or to the site administrator or to both or to any other email address. With that you can create for example a survey, ask the user for some data, and many more purposes.

The pre-defined contact forms can be enhanced by additional HTML fields such as input fields, textarea fields, select lists, radio buttons, checkboxes and datepickers. Also own contact forms can be easily created. In this way it is possible to create any kind of contact form.

You can show all data available in the details view also in the contact form, with that you can e.g. welcome a registered user in the form or show information which is not shown in the view, or repeat a specific information.

All field data available in the view can also be used to send along with the contact email by the usage of so called placeholders.

As the Contact Form field uses the Notifications Application to send the emails, all contact messages are listed in the Message Center (Notifications).

Since version 2.2, the Contact Form field comes with completely rewritten template files. The issue #1 ('required parameter works only for email field') could be solved only by rewriting the templates. If you do not care of this issue, you can leave your templates as they are, they will still work with version 2.2 and 2.3 of the Contact Form field. If you need to have fields set to be required, you need to use the new template files.
