FAQs

Which input types are possible?
  • text (date, email address, files, numbers, phone numbers, text, time and url)
  • textarea
  • select
  • radio
  • checkbox
  • GDPR (checkbox with GDPR text)
  • Hidden (value, date, user ip, user agent, Joomla userid, Joomla username, server ip, server host and server url)
  • Section (add anything you want with the editor)

 

Can I pre-fill data?

You can set default values and you are also able to fill in the fields with the url. Have a look at the grey button in Demo 1 which fills some fields by url. You can also fill hidden fields.

How can I use hidden values?

You can simply set hidden values which will not be emailed to the customer like date, user ip, user agent, Joomla userid, Joomla username, server ip, server host and server url. You can also define a custom hidden value or use values from the URL (GET variables).

To use GET variables simply add the hidden value $_GET['variable'].

Can I add content between the input elements?
Yes, you can use Input -> Section and add all the content you want with the default editor.
Who will receive the submitted form?

The form can be submitted to email addresses (TO, CC and BCC) including a CSV file containing all inputs. Also to the user as a copy (without attachment and hidden fields), as also as redirected to a new page as GET or POST data and optional as POST hidden in the background. This means you can process the data already in the background. Furthermore the data is stored in the Joomla database, too.

In what way will more Form generate the FROM address?
You can setup the FROM address in the email settings tab and check the checkbox "Use visitors address as FROM". The workflow will be: more Form catches the first email address in the form as FROM address. If no email address is found or provided in your form the "Sender (FROM) eMail" field of the email settings tab will be used. If you left this field empty the FROM setting of Joomla's global configuration is being used.
Can I put the form into a modal?

Yes, you can. The options are already built in, so that you can use nice contact buttons instead of the forms e.g. in a team gallery like in Demo 2.

Can the form use a captcha?

Yes. more Form uses the standard Joomla captcha like Google ReCaptcha.

Is the form GDPR save?

You can use the Input -> GDPR option which already shows a common text used for GDPR option.

Does more Form support file uploads?

Yes, single and multiple.

Can I style the sent mails?

You can style admin and visitor mails independetly. You can also make use of a nice header and footer option. The input fields will be submitted as a nice table. You can also make use of the data to greet the user with the input name.

What is the component about?

We added a free component to easily search between dates and in the submitted form date as also export data as CSV. You can download it free from the downloads section after you bought the builder element.

I get the error "Client does not have permissions to send as this sender. SMTP code 550)"

Please disable the option "Use visitor address as FROM" in the eMail tab, because your mailserver does not allow to change the FROM value to the visitors mail address. more Form uses this as sender address for you to quickly respond in your mail client. By disabling this the address configured in the Joomla global configuration will be used instead.

I do not receive any mails

If you don't receive any mails your (mail)server configuration does not support all options that you activated in more Form.

For example: Some servers do not allow sending attachments while using PHPmail or sendmail. Always try to use SMTP as default mailer in Joomla, which is the best and most secure option. Some mailservers won't accept mails sent by PHPmail or will mark them easier as spam.

Also some mailservers don't accept sending in the name of a foreign domain. more Modal uses the visitors mail address as sender address by default. Disable the option in the eMail settings tab and try again.

As these problems are very rare, we are here to assist you. Just contact us if you face any issues.

The form is not showing up in the modal?!

Please check the section the form is placed in and deactivate the animation. The animation will not be triggered on the modal so that one will stay hidden. You can just put the form into a new section. If you want to open the modal with your own button just add it as HTML with <button uk-toggle="target: #ownid" type="button">

How can I mask a phone number?

The mask feature allows you to get a specific phone number syntax without the user having to hassle around with whitespace and hyphens. You can use these definitions:

  • 0 - any digit
  • a - any letter
  • * - any character
  • [] - optional group
  • {} - fixed group

Everything else is a fixed character. If you need a fixed character that is like the definition (e.g. the number 0) you can escape it with \\ (e.g. \\0).

Examples:

German phone numbers of +49 (0) 12345 / 6789-0:
+{49} (\\0) 00000 / 0000-0

Ukraine phone numbers of +38 (099) 999-99-99:
+{38} (\\000) 000-00-00
