Re: zem_contact_reborn 4.0.3.19 (old version)

That’s wonderful Ruud! Thank you for the help. One question – is there a way to output the list of events by date or in ascending order? Now the list is unordered, does not matter really, just wondering.

Also, how to make the select drop down be in an empty state, forcing the user to choose an option? Now, the first event appears in the list.

Thanks again.

Again, code adjusted to add those two requests.

It currently doesn’t allow you to add “rel” attribute to the form elements does it. I’d really like to make use of PPK’s Usable forms script in a few projects.

“rel” is not a valid attribute for form elements.

I don’t know if this is possible but could zem contact be used to submit articles? So you could have an article entry form separate from the admin interface.

I came up with this idea recently and now I found you post. Almost scary! :)

You probably can do that, but it would require an additional plugin to take the form input and insert that into the textpattern table. Have you considered using the mem_self_register plugin ?

This could work, but I’m working on a project where I want visitors to be able to submit material anonymously without the need for registration. mem_moderation_article and mem_moderation are supposed to be able to do this, but they don’t seem to work at the moment and I’m still waiting for a reply from the author about some of the problems I encounter.

So, is anyone up for a little hacking maybe? ;)

Re: zem_contact_reborn 4.0.3.19 (old version)

evalottchen:

i use a company called hosteurope. […] but I don’t get it to send the email. Each time, it come back with the error “Unable to send email”.

Evalottchen, you’ll get it to send mails, if you go to the Hosteurope-KIS, click on “Webhosting”, then “Konfigurieren”, then “Skripte”, then “Standard E-Mail-Adresse”. From the Popup menu there you simply choose the mailaddress shown there (don’t know how you’ve configured your addresses, I had no choice as there was only one to pick.)
That’s all. Now wait for … one hour or so and your script will send mails like you desire.

Re: zem_contact_reborn 4.0.3.19 (old version)

ruud, thanks for linking the pure code in no.188. It works fine and I finally get mail with the sender field filled in. Great! Would you be so kind to link the revised help, too? Thanks in advance!

I tried what you proposed to evalottchen and pasted the original plugin code into an article, which didn’t work. But the halves got stored already so there’s no hint what causes the problem, dam.

Re: zem_contact_reborn 4.0.3.19 (old version)

Uli, if pasting both halves of the code separately in an article does work… perhaps the problem is simply a limitation on the amount of data you can submit in a form on your webhost (ZCR is 80kBytes and growing). Can you test with some textfiles containing various amounts of text? Perhaps this is only a problem is the text is more than 64kBytes. If so, try contacting your webhost and ask if there’s a limit on the size of a POST request.

You can probably also find which limit there is for POST requests by pasting <?php phpinfo() ?> into a file called info.php, and upload that you your website. If you visit that with your browser there should be some information on the various limits imposed by your webhost.

Re: zem_contact_reborn 4.0.3.19 (old version)

ruud, under Configuration > PHP Core the value for post_max_size is set to 8M for both local and master value. This should be the relevant line among these 25 meter of output.
I’ve recently mailed the problem to Hosteurope, let’s see.

Re: zem_contact_reborn 4.0.3.19 (old version)

Let us know how HostEurope responded. If they refuse to deal with this, I have some ideas to work around it, but they do require a considerable amount of extra work to implement and I’d have to know for certain if it’s just the size of the plugin that’s causing problems rather than the content of the plugin code.

Re: zem_contact_reborn 4.0.3.19 (old version)

Hi ruud!

Is there a way to avoid sending an empty input within the e-mail form with ZCR 4.0.3.19?
I have a very long list of inputs and the mail could be a very long message…

Tks lot for your answer.

Congratulations for your new status of Core Developer.

Best regards,

Re: zem_contact_reborn 4.0.3.19 (old version)

Thank you :)

You can avoid empty values from showing up in the mail by making a small change in the code:

foreach ($zem_contact_labels as $name => $label)
{
    $msg[] = $label.': '.$zem_contact_values[$name];
}

into:

foreach ($zem_contact_labels as $name => $label)
{
    if (!trim($zem_contact_values[$name])) continue;
    $msg[] = $label.': '.$zem_contact_values[$name];
}

Perhaps this should be included in the official version.
