A reusable contact form app for Django. Can be used with a modern user-friendly spam protection.

bitmazk-contact-form

A reusable contact form app for Django. Can be used with a modern user-friendly spam protection or Google’s reCAPTCHA. Ready for multilingual sites.

At the moment this contact form does not redirect to a success page. Instead it adds a variable contact_form_success to the template context. The developer can then just output some success message next to the form.

The project can be used in conjunction with django-cms. Therefore the package comes with a cms_app.py file and can be integrated into your CMS pages via an AppHook.

Prerequisites

  • see requirements.txt

Installation

If you want to install the latest stable release from PyPi:

$ pip install bitmazk-contact-form

If you feel adventurous and want to install the latest commit from GitHub:

$ pip install -e git://github.com/bitmazk/bitmazk-contact-form#egg=contact_form

Add contact_form to your INSTALLED_APPS:

INSTALLED_APPS = (
    [...]
    'contact_form',
}

Add CONTACT_FORM_RECIPIENTS to your settings.py:

CONTACT_FORM_RECIPIENTS = (
    ('Foo Bar', 'foobar@example.com'),
)

Make sure to have a block called contact_form in your template:

{% block contact_form %}

If the output does not fit your needs, just override the templates provided by this package.

With Django-CMS

Create a CMS page, assign it to the template that has the contact_form block and add the Contact Form AppHook to the page.

Simple spam protection

Make sure you got a content block named extracss or add the relevant css sheet:

{{ form.media.css }}

reCAPTCHA

First register at https://www.google.com/recaptcha/ and make sure you added all the relevant URLs to your captcha.

Install django-recaptcha:

pip install django-recaptcha

Add it to your installed apps.

Now add the following settings:

CONTACT_FORM_RECAPTCHA = True
RECAPTCHA_PUBLIC_KEY = 'YOUR_GOOGLE_RECAPTCHA_PUBLIC_KEY'
RECAPTCHA_PRIVATE_KEY = 'YOUR_GOOGLE_RECAPTCHA_PRIVATE_KEY'
NOCAPTCHA = True
RECAPTCHA_USE_SSL = True  # We assume you are using https://

Configuration

Set CONTACT_FORM_DISPLAY_CATEGORIES=True if you want the form to include a list of categories the users request is about.

The categories are stored as master data and you can add them via the Django admin under contact_form > ContactFormCategory.
