Re: zem_contact_reborn v4.5.0.0: contact mail form processing

giz wrote #297789:

the form works every time, as long as I exclude the <txp:zem_contact_email /> field.

How very strange. Is there any change if you try any of the following:

  • <txp:zem_contact_email name="email" />
  • <txp:zem_contact_text type="email" name="email" />
  • <txp:zem_contact_text name="email" />

If any of those work, I wonder if it’s missing a gTxt() string. See, if you don’t specify a name attribute (which the zem_contact_email tag doesn’t by default) it tries to use the label as the name. The label defaults to gTxt('zem_contact_email') so if that string is missing form your txp_lang database table, there’ll be no name set in the HTML for that field, which will thus have no sender, which might cause some filters to drop the message or trip Txp’s sendmail feature into a spin. When you render the form, is there a name for the email field when you use <txp:zem_contact_email />?

If this problem is the case I’ll have to put some defensive code in to trap conditions where there’s no name attribute set.

Good catch, thanks. The new boolean attributes probably shouldn’t have any value at all if you are using HTML 5. Not sure how best to implement that, but I’ll see what I can do.

Hi Stef ;)

Don’t worry about that: it’s not very important.

Another feature which could be more important for your final release: the ability to support translations for fallback error messages. May be with a trad="en" or lang="fr" attribute for the <txp:zem_contact > tag.

    zem_contact_field_missing: Your Name
    zem_contact_field_missing: Email
    zem_contact_field_missing: Message

I make lot of multi-language websites and I could send you a donation for that ;)

Thanks, Stef.

The name and id field are set to ‘Email’.

I solved the problem by converting zen_contact to use SMTP mail.

Re: zem_contact_reborn v4.5.0.0: contact mail form processing

I can’t seem to get placeholder to work. Is there some special attribute you need to set or something?

<txp:zem_contact_text label="Name" class="" placeholder="First Last" />

Does not render the placeholder attribute on the frontend.

Nope, but make sure your Doctype in Admin->Preferences is set to render HTML 5. Without that, all HTML5esque elements are ignored.

Ahhh… Thank you, that did the trick.

Awesome job on the new zem_contact_reborn plugin. With how it’s changed over the years it should really be renamed and stripped of the zemCamelCase classes.

Yeah, but I decided to keep it as close to the original for backwards compatibility, otherwise people would have to rewrite their forms / style rules.

As someone who maintains dozens of TXP sites with massive contact, quote, and application forms using this plugin… I’m totally ok with redoing my forms and removing all the .zem classes from my stylesheets. I’d rather be able to fully control the markup so I can use frameworks like Bootstrap or Skeleton to rapidly build forms instead of having to deal with the .zem stuff and writing jQuery to swap them out for proper consistent classes.

No problem. Here’s a step towards that nirvana. You can now customise the error/info class names via the classes attribute on the <txp:zem_contact /> tag. They default to the camelCase class names of yesteryear so nobody’ll be any wiser unless they start tinkering with the attribute. See the docs for details.

W3C validator error found: Bad value for autofocus="1"

This should be fixed from this point on as the plugin now correctly renders boolean attributes as single words. Please test if you can.

Sorry, I’m not quite sure I follow this. Do you have an example of a workflow where you can explain what you expect the outcome to be under various circumstances? The plugin supports the lang attribute everywhere for individual fields and error messages are in Textpacks, but if the attributes can be made more useful or work better with languages then let me know how you think it should work and I’ll see what I can do.
