adds a contact page to your site allowing visitors to send some feedback or ask a question.
The contact page is addressable via the link "Contact Us" in the footer of your site.

In this component i have used the following things that is usefull for others to build component

1.How to register page ?
2.How to write action ?
3.How to write the setting page ?

For the above question you can get the answer by seeing this plugin .
I hope this will helpfull for you guys to build a new one.

This component comes with two configurable settings on the admin backend

  1. Email address to which the contact form should be sent
    this one is mandantory
  2. Any text or HTML that should appear above the contact form, e.g. an IFRAME with a road map
    you may either leave it blank in order to display only the contact form, or add any HTML code which will be displayed on top of the form then

Contact 3.0 has been adapted to work flawlessly with Ossn 5.2 and on mobile devices. All currently available language files are already in place, but (except of the German one) still need to be translated.

One thing I have to ask. Your flag is German, Map says you are close to Berlin. Explain this to me???

(except of the German one)

To be honest, I completely removed google maps option on my side. I see absolute no need for it in the Contact Us form. But, since it is not my component, I felt like I can't just delete addons from it. I figured, people can decide for them self's and just delete that part if they don't need it.

I see he put the option to insert google maps link from admin panel and he comment it cause it didn't work. This option is useless in this component, so I did nothing with it.

Perhaps I can grab that google maps feature and add it to person's profile page. It will fit better there.

Thanks for taking care of this oldie, Roman.

Before releasing your updated version:
Having a hardcoded Indian city on top of the form doesn't make so much sense, I think, while displaying the Ossn community's location instead would be a real enhancement.
And having a look at the beginning of contactform.php shows that Sathish obviously must have had a configurable option in mind - but never finished that part.

So, if you have the time to find out whether there's a Google api that allows us to enter a city name from the Ossn admin backend and get something back to feed the iframe with - I'd really appreciate.
If not, I'd vote for simply removing that map. :)


Perhaps a much simpler and even more versatile solution could be to add a textfield to the admin backend to paste the complete iframe or whatever html code into.
This way we wouldn't be forced to go with Google maps but may use other solutions like Open Street Map, too

sample openstreetmap iframe ...

I have an Updated version of this Component. Slightly changed layout. Modified system files to read languages from "locale". Russian and English are fully translated. Other languages are added but not translated(you can translate yours in "locale" folder"). Works with 5.2.

Staff, please add it to OSSN.

I just told you that the converting problem has been solved several days ago - and your answer is: "in ossn we dont have a component to send html to mail". I can only wonder ...

It doesn't need a component, it's 3 lines of code. See line 25 to 27 in
components/OssnMessages/classes/OssnMessages.php. You simply have to paste these lines below line 12 of your contactmail.php.

Have in mind that the majority of users is expecting correctly working components and not this kind of half done stuff.
