I think it should work, because it still is a one page form, so nothing gets submitted before the final step (therefore the server side error handling would work i suppose). The used jQuery code is validating the parts of the form on the client side too.
The main problem (I think) is in dealing with server-side error handling. What if you submit the form and ZCR says there’s something wrong in a form field in step 2? Ideally, I think the visitor should see step two with an error message that indicates what’s wrong. So you’d need to use javascipt to read the server-side errors (which are returned in the HTML code) and use that information to properly display the form. Most things can be checked on the client side, to avoid server-side errors… it’s mainly the email address that can’t really be checked without actually doing DNS lookups etc.
Could I add an CCO field?
I’d like to have in my contact form a hidden receiver.
Is it possible?
If you mean a BCC field, edit the plugin, find the line that reads
$headers = 'From: '.$from. and add just below:
$sep.'Bcc: <email address>'.
I’ve got ZCR installed on a website I’m working on. Everything seems to work fine, the thanks page appears when I send messages using the form, but I don’t receive any messages in my inbox when I tested it. Can someone help out here?
The form is used here: http://www.rockyourstage.nl/contact/
Edit: I was too early, fixed it..
Edit: Didn’t fix it. Somehow if I send the messages to my hotmail-account it works, but if I try other emails it doesn’t. (It’s not in the spambox either.) Help?

I’m using zem_contact_reborn for a form where I can have up to two [different] email addresses. I need the first to be always the sender. Is that possible? I know zcr puts possibly the last email address as sender.
Thank you very much
Is there a way to put in multiple email fields and have both be validated? For example, contact email and billing email?
Also, is there a way to display the form results on the confirmation page, for the visitor to print for their records?
I noticed a mention of the HTML5 placeholder attribute being included in an upcoming version of ZCR. This hasn’t already been released, has it? Would love to see that feature!
I don’t think it has, I’ve added placeholders via jQuery in the mean time.
$('label.zemText, label.zemTextarea').remove(); $('#Name').attr('placeholder','Name'); $('#email').attr('placeholder','E-Mail'); $('#message').attr('placeholder','Message');

I have a heavenly modified version of ZCR, with support for a lot of HTML5 attributes. If someone is interested, I can pack it up. As I suppose a newer version of the plugin will come with TXP 4.5, I’m not going to finish it. But for the meantime it works fine for me.

Thanks, MattD, Ruud, and Axel. Here’s where I am:
Placeholder attribute: I’ll definitely look into this for future projects. For this particular project, the work required is a bit outside scope, so I’ve set it aside for now.
Multiple emails: I found that as long as I list the main email field (the one I want to be the “From” address) last in the form, I can add alternate email fields prior to it and they will come through in the submitted results.
Form results displaying on confirmation page: I still would like to do this, and I’m hoping it won’t require too much beyond my limited understanding of PHP. Is there a way to output the contents of the
$msg array in the
thanks_form I’m using?
Thanks again for your help.
