What plugin is used to create an contact form?

Postby jwndev » Thu Mar 22, 2012 9:41 pm

Hello master,

I am still new - 1 day old - for this charming software.

I just wonder what plugin I can use to create an contact form.

Thanks a lot.

Search in this forum and read found posts.
Or look for at:
http://www.cmsimple-xh.com (WIKI)
or
http://www.cmsimplewiki.com
CMSimple.sk
It's no shame to ask for an answer if all efforts failed.
But it's awful to ask without any effort to find the answer yourself.

Hi jwn,

hope you're using CMSimple_XH...
If so, a good choice is Advancedform_XH.

And if you're familiar with php, you can give this one a try.

Hi jwn, hi Holger,

just to add the following clarification: Advancedform_XH is primarily meant to be used by typical end-users (even though some advanced functionality is available through PHP hooks), while FormMailer is an extremly powerful tool for advanced users/web master/web designers.

Hi Christoph,

I has installed Advancedform_XH. When I get to the plugin, it did the system check. It got a 'Extension 'openssl' loaded' warning/error. Please see the attached screenshot. I am running XAMMP on my local computer.

How should I configure XAMMP (apache, php) to get rid of this warning/error for openssl?

Thanks,
jwndev

Hi jwndev,

to be honest: I'm not sure, if OpenSSL is needed by Advancedform_XH at all. It's a requirement to use the full power of PHPMailer (the underlying mail library), but if I'm not mistaken, none of the functionality currently implemented by Advancedform_XH requires OpenSSL. I have to check this, though. But if Advancedform_XH works on your installation, just ignore the warning for now. I'll remove the check for OpenSSL in the next release, if it's not needed.

OTOH: I'm somewhat surprised, that OpenSSL is not installed with XAMMP. Usually it's contained in the package. :? Some informations about the installation can be found on http://www.php.net/manual/en/openssl.installation.php.

I've already checked the OpenSSL issue: indeed it's not used by Advancedform_XH (it's only necessary if you want to send signed mails with PHPMailer). But while I tested this I found a severe bug which I had introduced in 1beta11: no field values will be sent in HTML mails when used with PHP < 5.3 :oops:

1beta12 will be available soon!
