cmsplugin_contact_plus 1.2.7

A django CMS plugin to dynamically create contact forms.

# About cmsplugin_contact_plus

[cmsplugin-contact-plus]( lets you build forms for your Django CMS project
with exactly the fields you want in the order you want with a minimal effort.

Beside the regular input fields there are "auto" fields, for example to submit the referral page, or additional, hidden values.
The form will be submitted to an email address that is defined per form. This allows to cover a lot of use cases with a single and simple plugin.

cmsplugin-contact-plus is licensed under the MIT License.

## Quickstart

1. To install from [PyPI]( in your virtualenv run

pip install cmsplugin_contact_plus

or to get the latest commit from GitHub,

pip install -e git+git://

2. Put ``cmsplugin_contact_plus`` in your INSTALLED_APPS `` section and verify that the [ADMINS]( setting is set as well.

3. Don't forget to migrate your database.
4. Configure Django's [e-mail settings]( appropriately.

## Configuration/Settings


Specify ``DEFAULT_FROM_EMAIL`` ( in your projects settings to send emails from a specific address. Otherwise Django's default 'webmaster@localhost' will be used.


To set the reply-to header for the email automatically, specify ``CONTACT_PLUS_REPLY_EMAIL_LABEL`` in your project settings. If the label is "your email" for example, then set ``CONTACT_PLUS_REPLY_EMAIL_LABEL='your-email'`` - basically it's the slugified field label that is used to look up the reply-to email address.


Defines the required CSS class, default is `required`.


Specify ``CMSPLUGIN_CONTACT_FORM_VALIDATORS`` in your projects settings to one or more [validator functions]( that are used with the CharFieldWithValidator field. Expected is a list of strings, each string should point a validator function by its full path. For example:



To make the reCAPTCHA field type available to your users, add `'captcha'` to your `INSTALLED_APPS` and define your `RECAPTCHA_PUBLIC_KEY` and `RECAPTCHA_PRIVATE_KEY` as described in [django-recaptcha's README]( A single reCAPTCHA instance per page is supported.

## Templates

If you are not using the default template settings of Django, make sure that ``'django.template.loaders.app_directories.Loader'`` is added to the [`TEMPLATES.OPTIONS.loaders`]( list in your `` file. Likewise, if your Django version is < 1.8, make sure that the above-mentioned loader is in your list of [`TEMPLATE_LOADERS`](

Using the lable name, the ID for the input field will be 'id_object-description', the name 'object-description'.
