Contact Page V0.2

Description:
----------------
This Mod will add a contact page to your forum. It works the same way as sending a topic, emailing members etc. do, so if you don't have any problems sending out email from your forum, then you shouldn't have any problems with this.

Features:
-----------
o Enable for Guests and Members or Members only.
o Set predefined subjects.
o Subject prefixes.
o Spell checking.
o Validation code.
o Javascript alerts for required fields.
o Self copy.
o Auto-responder.

Notes:
--------
- As with any contact form, if you allow guest access it could leave your inbox open to spam.
- My button and icon aren't all that great, if anyone could make better ones it would be very much appreciated.
- Hopefully in the future I'll make it so that you can set different email addresses for each predefined subject.

Credits:
----------
Thanks to Mick (www.info4alien.de) for the German and German_Du Language translations.

in 1st Post, Derek. Only one thing missing:

That's great Mick. Thanks very much!

I've attached a button if you need it for now - I'll add everything to the package tomorrow (early morning, bed time in a minute)...

Thanks again!

Edited:
Attached button deleted- it's now in the package attached to the first post.

Okay, I've added the language files and the button to the package in the first post now. I've also made the textarea a bit bigger for the auto-respond message in the Contact Page Settings in Admin Center. I haven't changed the version number because it's only a very minor change (the only change is in Admin/ContactPageSettings.pl).

I've added the relevant code to this so that it will pick up your Antispam Settings.

V0.2 attached to the first post - the only changes are in Sources/ContactPage.pl.

Hi,

when I want to display a Text of the contactpage.lng in a different
color, what code I need for this?

For example, to display "indicates requiered field" in red:

Code
Select All
'02' => 'An <b>*</b> indicates required field.',

You could also use inline CSS like this:

Code
Select All
<span style="color: #ff0000;">Your Red Text</span> 


Both ways are valid, but CSS is generally preferred these days - Just thought I'd mention it for reference.
