Re: zem_contact_reborn 4.0.3.20

The fact that the HTML form itself is generated through this plugin is essential to make the plugin work. Having said that, it’s pretty flexible in letting you style the form, so I don’t see any reason why creating the form you referred to would pose a problem.

Um, okay. I did read the documentation and it doesn’t seem that this is the case. I was asking if I have an existing HTML form, is there a way I can use this plugin to easily power that form … it looks like I can use this plugin and style that any way I want, but I won’t be able to use a form that has already been written and was using a cgi script to power it.

You can use the existing form as a guide for re-creating that form with this plugin’s template tags. You can’t use the plugin without using the tags, however. There’s no way to simply take your current form and have it processed by zem_contact_reborn.

Edit: Looks like Ruud beat me to the punch.

Re: zem_contact_reborn 4.0.3.20

I’m sorry if this has been asked before, I already did extensive search for an answer but the thread is very long and search functionality on these forums is poor in a way.

Does this plug-in allows multiple recipients? Something like:

<txp:zem_contact to="recipient1@example.com, recipient2@example.com, recipient3@example.com" />

Re: zem_contact_reborn 4.0.3.20

That’s kind of ironic as I was reading just below that & never noticed it! Thanks.

How one could use this in a “Send Article” form where a user may send the article to one or more recipients? The documentation says the to attribute is required, which is common sense when there’s only one email address. However, in a typical “Send Article” or “Refer A Friend” form with multiple recipients only a first email is mandatory and all other email fields must be optional.

Re: zem_contact_reborn 4.0.3.20

One another project I have following problem. Select menu is created in PHP (not plugin), I have there onchange javascript function that takes values from OPTIONs, split them (price|measure|title) and insert into one input and one hidden (display:none) input. Problem is that when I modified plugin to accept <txp:zem_contact_text disabled="1" /> because I dont want to user can change price. When input have got disabled=“disabled”, value inserted by javascript is not sent. Hope you understand, my english is terrible.

Here is it: Pila Brantice

Re: zem_contact_reborn 4.0.3.20

That is the correct behaviour, so if you do want the input sent, use readonly="readonly" instead of disabled="disabled"… but you’d still have to verify server-side that the price is correct, because users can circumvent the readonly/disabled attributes.

I don’t think it’s what I need. By saying “Send Article” I was talking about site visitors’ ability to send articles to their friends not subscribing to newsletters or updates; I’ve already used PHPList for that purpose.

So I guess sending multiple recipients entered by users cannot be achieved with the current version of this plug-in?

Re: zem_contact_reborn 4.0.3.20

Oops I understand now:)

To my knowledge it is not possible although there’s mrh_email_article_link which I use for the texts in neme.org. Having said that the plugin can now probably be easily replaced with something even more automated like:

<a href="mailto:?subject=<txp:page_title>&amp;body=http://yoursite.com/<txp:page_url />">Email article link</a>
