Re: zem_contact_reborn v4.5.0.0: contact mail form processing

subject=“State Machines inquiry”

I’m confused! If you add that attribute to your main <txp:zem_contact> tag, then yes, it’s hard-coded. You’ll always see that subject line in all received mails.

If you add a select list to your form, it’s just another field. It gets sent in the body of the message as a separate field, as normal, and appears in your email with the given label.

What makes a particular select field “special” is if you hook into one of them using the subject_form (or to_form) attribute instead. That then allows you to extract whatever is chosen by the user and pipe the value to a dedicated part of the email: the subject line, and the recipient respectively in these cases.

The select fields still get sent in the email body, regardless. Look at a received mail and you’ll see the organisation displayed in it.

So if your goal is to allow users to chose what their email is “about” then add a select list and hook it into the subject line via the subject_form attribute. If your goal is to just change thedefault “[Site name] > Enquiry” subject line to something else for all emails, hard-code it in the subject attribute of your main <txp:zem_contact /> tag.

No reason to be confused. I’m the one who was the space cadet here. Hard-coding it in the <txp:zem_contact_select subject="SMI" .../> did the trick.

Then that’s a bug/undocumented feature ;-) It’s not supposed to support that attribute. I’ll have to investigate.

Are you sure? From the plugin’s help:

subject="subject text"
Subject used when sending an email. Default is the site name.

Re: zem_contact_reborn v4.5.0.0: contact mail form processing

Absolutely. That attribute is only officially supported in the <txp:zem_contact> tag, not in the <txp:zem_contact_select /> tag.

OK I know I am tired and I am confusing everyone else. Here is what I have working, no bug:

<txp:zem_contact to_form="my_zem_contact_to_form" subject="SMI" thanks="Thank you, your message has been sent.">
<txp:zem_contact_text label="Your name" required="1" /><br />
<txp:zem_contact_text label="Your surname" required="1" /><br />
<txp:zem_contact_email label="Your email" name="Email" required="1" /><br />
<txp:zem_contact_text label="Your website" required="0" /><br />
<txp:zem_contact_select name="Organisation" label="Select organisation you wish to contact" options=",Project coordinator,aaa,bbb,ccc" /><br />
<txp:zem_contact_textarea label="Message" required="1" /><br />
<txp:zem_contact_checkbox label="To prove that this is not spam, check this box before clicking the send button." /><br />
<txp:zem_contact_serverinfo name="REMOTE_ADDR" label="IP number" />
<txp:zem_contact_serverinfo name="HTTP_USER_AGENT" label="Browser" />
<txp:zem_contact_submit label="Send" />
</txp:zem_contact>

Thanks. I missed that! It also appears that I receive no updates from the forum anymore… Will check that out, too.

Sorry for missing your request. Have you added Japanese strings to the plugin? Are they in your database if you, for example, query it:

select * from txp_lang where name like 'zem_contact%' and lang = 'ja-jp'...

Edit: phiw13 was faster!

Thanks, Stef. I missed this response completely. It appears that I receive no updates from the forum anymore… Will check that out, too.

Once again thanks. And Steff, too. I checked. There are indeed no Japanese language strings. How can I fix that?

Re: zem_contact_reborn v4.5.0.0: contact mail form processing

We have really bad spam attacks via ZCR for some weeks now. I have pap_contact_cleaner and Stef’s suggestion at work. Is there a way I can stop them?

I suggest everyone have a look at com_connect, if you haven’t already joined this decade. ;)

This quote is from “zem_contact_reborn 4.0.3.20”-Plugin Support-Thread.
I thought, we have with “com_connect” an another contact-plugin for textpattern? Would work “com_connect” for you and get no spam? For my new website works com_connect very fine. Here is the thread for ‘com_connect’-Plugin

What about implementing reCaptcha? https://www.google.com/recaptcha/
I guess someone tried that before…
