Nice work and totally agree with Marshalrusty about the current form and extensions.

Contact Page - a couple of changes?

Post by Louis7777 »

  1. When viewing the contact page as a guest, "Your email address" field should be below the "Your name" field, as that's how it usually is.
  2. It'd be better if we could only resize the message box vertically or at least give it a proportional max-width.

I see your point but an argument could be made that the email address is actually more important than the name. I'm fine with it either way.

However, is there an option in the ACP to enable captcha?

That's a good idea, but forget the option -- just always have CAPTCHA enabled for guests (if you're logged in, don't display the CAPTCHA unless, maybe, you're in the Newly Registered Users group).

However, the Contact page should indicate which fields are required. I presume that the E-mail address and name fields are required, but I don't know.

Correct - no CAPTCHA if logged-in... But it should be there for guests.

No, the page is linked on registration if the user is unable to solve the captcha.
@ Nick - I don't understand what you mean :|

I clicked the "Contact Us" page as a guest (as if I wanted to contact the website) and I was taken to the Form (it didn't have captcha). What does that have to do with registration?

Unless you're stating that the Contact Us page is only there when someone can't figure out the captcha during registration... But I don't think that's the case (Nor do I believe that's your reasoning).

I think (but didn't check) that, on the registration page, you have a link to the contact page if you can not read/answer the captcha. So puting a captcha on the contact page might be a non-sense (in this case at least).

I get that but we need captcha to help fight off spam. Quite a conundrum :?
