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:

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!
