Hey Frantz! Thanks for pluging this guy. :D There are a couple of items to look at.
  • 1. In contact.php, the table size should be set to 100% instead of 800px to allow for narrow themes like the ones I've been submitting. The 800px was a throw back from my early Coppermine days and learning what it was all about.
  • 2. In themes that have vertical list like the OrangeSky theme, the contact menu item won't match the others if they have an image assocated with them. This may also be an issue with themes that have buttons but didn't check it.
  • 3. I've gotten so much spam through my contacts forms lately that I've been trying out various methods such as Captcha and this new method that has been working well for me. It's easier to implement than Captcha so maybe you can incorporate it directly into the plugin. It's called Fee Contact Form at http://www.freecontactform.com/ but just read and make sure there isn't any legal issues but I don't there is. You have to answer a simple math question before the email is sent but you can also make up your own questions and answers. You can check it out here on my sports gallery - http://www.bullseyephotos.com/sports/contact.php.
Cheers!

BTW you have a problem with contact button positioaning
- on those themes that comes with javascript show/hide menu such as mac_ox_x , eyeball , igames
- or those themes that use picture for button or picture toframe button , such as fruity , hardwired , rainy_day ,...

maybe you could check contact_user_menu function and re-code it with better logic ;)

Check the new codebase.php and if you like the idea put it under orginal pack ;)
It will create a contact button right after Home button by using home button template

Hi there,

i would like to use this plugin but i do have a question. Is it possible to make a edition of this plugin which uses Captcha
for confirmation instead of using math questions ?

I already got the captcha plugin for comments from Sami and that works like a charm.

Cheers!
Hein

I'm not clear on what your question actually is. The place to change the word 'plus' is in the plugin's lang/english.php (or whatever language you use)

Code: [Select]
  'opertator'     => ' plus ',
Be sure to preserve the typo when you make your change.

If your question is how to change the word 'plus' with the sign '+'
change in the plugin's lang/english.php (or in your language file)
Code: [Select]
'opertator'     => ' plus ',to
Code: [Select]
'opertator'     => ' + ',

After a few hours found the problem myself.
In the lang file code operator is spelled as "opertator".
Changed it, working fine now.
Thanks for your reaction.

Top plugin, was getting sick of all the spam in my comment fields.
This contact form is a great solution.
