How backwards compatible is this, for people still using TXP4.7 ?

Yes, it should work in 4.6+.

It is 4.7+ only. The lang strings are designed for the 4.7 shorter langs identifiers.

selfishly, 4.7+ is OK !
Thank you both.

(we really should start looking at upgrading that site to 4.8.x)

Re: com_connect - form and contact mailer

Where can I download the textpack for Dutch (nl-nl)? If there is one … :o

If not … how can I change the error text (“This form has already …”) into Dutch?

It’s in the plugin already and should auto-apply it when Dutch is installed in your Txp. However, that largely depends on when you installed it and into which version of Textpattern.

The language designators in the plugin are still the ‘old’ 4.6-style ones, but they should gracefully fall back to the new designators. At least I hope that happens. In theory, if you install the plugin on a 4.8+ Textpattern, it’ll store all the packs in the database ready for you so when you add/switch languages they’ll auto-install.

If for some reason the pack hasn’t worked, try this pack that I copied directly from near the top of the plugin code:

#@public
#@language nl-nl
com_connect_checkbox => Keuze
com_connect_contact => Contact
com_connect_email => E-mail adres
com_connect_email_subject => {site} > bericht via de site
com_connect_email_thanks => Hartelijk dank, je bericht is verzonden.
com_connect_field_missing => Je hebt bij <strong>{field}</strong> nog niets ingevuld.
com_connect_format_warning => De invoer {value} in <strong>{field}</strong> heeft niet de juiste vorm.
com_connect_form_expired => Het formulier is verlopen, probeer het opnieuw.
com_connect_form_used => Het formulier is reeds verstuurd, vul het opnieuw in.
com_connect_general_inquiry => Bericht van de site
com_connect_invalid_email => <strong>{email}</strong> is geen geldig e-mail addres.
com_connect_invalid_host => <strong>{host}</strong> is geen geldige e-mail host.
com_connect_invalid_utf8 => <strong>{field}</strong> bevat ongeldige lettertekens.
com_connect_invalid_value => Ongeldige invoer bij <strong>{field}</strong>, <strong>{value}</strong> is niet mogelijk.
com_connect_mail_sorry => Sorry, er kan geen e-mail verzonden worden.
com_connect_maxval_warning => <strong>{field}</strong> mag niet groter zijn dan {value}.
com_connect_max_warning => <strong>{field}</strong> mag niet meer dan {value} lettertekes bevatten.
com_connect_message => Berichttekst
com_connect_minval_warning => <strong>{field}</strong> moet minstens {value} zijn.
com_connect_min_warning => <strong>{field}</strong> moet minstens {value} lettertekens bevatten.
com_connect_name => Naam
com_connect_option => Optie
com_connect_pattern_warning => <strong>{field}</strong> komt niet overeen met de volgorde {value}.
com_connect_radio => Keuzeknop
com_connect_recipient => Ontvanger
com_connect_refresh => Je kunt deze link gebruiken als de pagina niet automatisch ververst.
com_connect_secret => Geheim
com_connect_send => Verzenden
com_connect_send_article => Artikel verzenden
com_connect_spam => We accepteren geen spam!
com_connect_text => Tekst
com_connect_to_missing => <strong>Aan</strong> e-mailadres ontbreekt.

Copy and paste that into the ‘Install from Textpack’ box at the bottom of the Admin>Languages panel and you should be good to go.

Re: com_connect - form and contact mailer

For the very first time I consciously set the correct languages in the language tab of Textpattern. Boy, am I lazy … :o

With “lang=“nl-nl” in the com_connect tag everything works like a charm. As you stated.

Thanks Bloke … :)

Re: com_connect - form and contact mailer

Yiannis asked here if perhaps body_form and permlink might be used to get the URL of the page on which the user submitted the contact form. I’ve tried it and tried permlink inside com_connect_secret too but it seems txp:tags aren’t allowed inside com_connect?

I don’t need this now, but it does seem like a good idea if txp:tags could be used somewhere inside the form.

They are but you may need to think about context. If you’re displaying an article then with your form on it, then including this in your form will send the permlink along:

<com::connect_secret label="This article"><txp:permlink /></com::connect_secret>

(in theory, you could use value='<txp:permlink />' if you prefer).

But if you’re on a landing page or something like that then <txp:permlink /> won’t work and you’ll need to use <txp:page_url /> instead to get at the URL component you want to submit.

Thanks Stef. I tried it and it works. I’ll have to look into ::!

Excellent. The double-colon is just shorthand notation for plugins so instead of:

<txp:com_connect_text />
<txp:smd_if />

You can shorten them to:

<com::connect_text />
<smd::if />

Note: plugin tags that take <txp:else /> can actually use the plugin prefix and double-colon as well if you wish to make it more obvious which ‘else’ is associated with which tag. A contrived example:

<txp:if_section name="">
   <txp:if_category>
      <txp:category wraptag="h3" title />
      <txp:article limit="5" />
   <txp:else />
      <smd::if field="urlvar:product_code" operator="isalnum">
         <txp:output_form form="show_product" />
      <smd::else />
         <p>Invalid product code</p>
      </smd::if>
   </txp:if_catgeory>
<txp:else />
   Other section page handling here...
</txp:if_section>

(and in fact <txp:output_form form="show_product" /> can be shortened using shortcode syntax to: <txp::show_product /> – only works if your shortcode form names use ASCII and underscores though. Won’t work with hyphens)

Re: com_connect - form and contact mailer

Thanks for going beyond the call of duty with your explanation, Stef. Much obliged. If I don’t use it, I lose it, and probably read about double-colons before, but I hope this time it will stick.

My previous failed attempt probably had a syntax error, because it works just fine now:

<txp:com_connect_secret label="Sent from"><txp:site_url trim="/" /><txp:page_url /></txp:com_connect_secret>

But

<com::connect_secret ><txp:site_url trim="/" /><txp:page_url /></com::connect_secret> 

is very neat and your else and output_form examples are very useful too. Thanks!
