How can I add specific fields into the email message?

There is a tag named <%INFO%> that is replaced with all the information posted from the form, however you can use also optional tags for specific fields into the form.

For doing that, click the desired field into the form builder and in the settings box for that field there is a read-only setting named "Field tag for the message (optional):". Copy & paste that tag into the message text and after the form submission that tag will be replaced with the text entered in the form field.

The tags have this structure (example): <%fieldname1%>, <%fieldname2%>, <%fieldname3%>, ...

How can I apply CSS styles to the form fields?

How can I apply CSS styles to the form fields?

To modify the whole styles of the form fields and labels, edit the styles file "components/com_contactform/contactform/css/stylepublic.css" and add these rules at the end of that file:

  • Change all the labels:
        #fbuilder, #fbuilder label, #fbuilder span {
            color: #00f;
        }
    
  • Change all the input, textarea and select fields:
        #fbuilder input[type=text], #fbuilder textarea, #fbuilder select {
            border: 2px solid #00f;
        }
    
  • Change the submit button:
        #fbuilder .pbSubmit {
            color: #00f;
            font-weight: bold;
        }
    
  • Change the "Section Break" field:
        #fbuilder .section_breaks label { font-size:18px; }
        #fbuilder .section_breaks span { font-size:14px; }
    
  • Change the "Instructions Text" field:
        #fbuilder .comment_area label { font-size:18px; }
        #fbuilder .comment_area span { font-size:14px; }
    
  • Change the "next" and "previous" buttons:
        #fbuilder .pbNext,#fbuilder .pbPrevious {
            color: #00f;
            font-weight: bold;
        }
    
  • Change the "form title" and "header description":
        #fbuilder .fform h1 {font-size:32px;}
        #fbuilder .fform span {font-size:16px;}
    

On the other hand to modify only a specific field into the form:

  • Step #1: Into the form editor, click a field to edit its details, there is a setting there named "Add CSS Layout Keywords".

  • Step #2: You can add a class name into that field, so the style specified into the CSS class will be applied to that field.

  • Step #3 (Note): Don't add style rules directly there but the the name of a CSS class.

  • Step #4: You can place the CSS class either into the CSS file of your template or into the file "components/com_contactform/contactform/css/stylepublic.css" located into the plugin's folder.

  • Examples: Add a class named "specialclass" into the setting "Add CSS Layout Keywords" and add one of these CSS rules into the mentioned file:

    • Change the field label:
          .specialclass label {
             color: #00f;
          }
      
    • Change the input, textarea or select of the field:
          .specialclass input[type=text],.specialclass textarea,.specialclass select {
              border: 2px solid #00f;
          }
      

I haven't received the email with the download link or I lost the download link. How can I get it?

If you purchased the product using Google Checkout, the instructions for accessing your purchase will appear in a yellow box at the top of your Order Receipt page (into your Google Checkout account):



After accessing that link you will get a copy of the product and a copy of the download link will be sent to your email address. Please be sure to check your spam/bulk mail folder if you don't see the email into your inbox.

I'm getting installer errors.

If you get any of the following errors:

JInstaller: :Install: Cannot find XML setup file

Error! Could not find an XML setup file in the package.

... be sure that you have UNZIPPED the downloaded file and then selected the installer file for your Joomla version. Note that the main file (the ZIP that you get with the download) is a ZIP file that contains the installers for different Joomla versions, components, modules and plugins.
