Thanks a lot. Working perfectly in 3.1.8. Was getting spam all of a sudden on our contact page and was looking for a solution.

Hello!
After installation and activation of your extension I always get this message on the contact page:
Service Unavailable
The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later.
After that your extension is disabled.
What do I miss?

Check the logs in the ACP.

Hey Rich, I hate to bug you again, but is it possible to get the email address and the "reason" in the subject line that get posted in the forum? if so, how? Right now I have a bot set to make posts for everyone, and the posts are going into a nonpublic forum.

also, while i am bugging you ;) is it possible to get a referring page on the incoming post ( the page the person was on when they pushed the contact us button)??

thanks much, amigo.

Reason should be the subject. To add the users email address, edit this line in the main_controller file

https://github.com/rmcgirr83/contactadm ... r.php#L438

and make it like this

Code: Select all

submit_post('post', $subject . ' - ' . $data['email'], $this->user->data['username'], POST_NORMAL, $poll, $post_data); 
BUT that will also add registered users email addresses to the subject line of the topic as well.

Nope, sorry.

agreed on the subject, but for reasons of our site we also need to classify by email address. It just makes it easier on us rather than editing the subject line and inserting the address on every contact us form. For us an email address is unique so it doesn't matter if we need members separated from guests. TY very much!! :D

thanks anyhow. I've edited the text in the contact us box to say please include the URL you are contacting us about... it is as good as it gets I guess, but either people don't read it, or just don't know what a URL is....

Members name is included in the message sent to the forum (which is a clickable link). If a guest the email address is included within the message sent in the forum post.

@RMcGirr83

Thanx for this ext, it have exactly the features i missed with the standard contact feature. :)

One suggestion: we need own (longer) text with bbcode for the contact page, it would be helpfully if there is another option in the ACP part from Contact Admin for display the text from the standard contact page. Sorry, my english isn't the best, what i mean:

...
Visual confirmation for guests only: Yes/No
Display text from "Contact page settings": Yes/No
Check Username: Yes/No
...

Then, i found the variable {CONTACT_INFO} in the standard template "memberlist_email.html". I think this variable displays the text i mean. If your ext shows this text above the Contact Admin form it would be perfect.
May the backup be with you. Always.

My extensions: Monospace font for Posting Editor (phpbb.de)
My extension forks: LF who was here (phpbb.de / phpbb.com), ModBreak eXtended (phpbb.com)

I submitted it to the CDB almost one month ago and it is currently coded to work in both 3.1 and 3.2

Hi! Write through the translator, so sorry for the style :) You have a conflict with the reCaptcha extension 2.0 https://github.com/gothick/phpbb-ext-recaptcha2 and QuickReply https://github.com/BoardTools/QuickReply

I haven't had any conflicts using it with that recaptcha2 extension.
