Simple application, that provides customizable email form tempalte tag.You can specify form fields and optionally enable dedicated view to render feedback page.

Latest Version: 0.4.1

Quick start

In code

Add feedback to INSTALLED_APPS


Example urlpatterns:

(r'^feedback', include('feedback.urls'))

Synchronize your database models run django syncdb

In templates

Load tags library:

{% load feedback_tags %}

Insert template tag in your template

{% show_feedback [key] %},

where key is feedback form key. Default key value is default.


Note that feedback uses ajax form based on jQuery, so you need to include jQuery in your page. You can install it from Google hosting:

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>


When True, application will show default feedback form with template feedback/feedback_page.html where feedback urls were included. If you set this setting to False you should display feedback form manually, by including {% show_feedback [key] %} tag into template.
This parameter sets attachments maximum file size in megabytes. Default value is 2 MB.
Registry for custom feedback forms. See Customize section.
A dict with feedback forms as keys and lists of exluded manager emails as values. All the keys are defined in FEEDBACK_FORMS setting.


If you want to customize default feedback form, or add your own, you have to create an application with your forms. All feedback forms should be subclasses of feedback.forms.BaseFeedbackForm. Here is an example of custom feedback class:

from django import forms
from feedback.forms import BaseFeedbackForm

class OrderForm(BaseFeedbackForm):
    name = forms.CharField(label=u'Your name', max_length=200)
    email = forms.EmailField(label=u'Your Email', max_length=200)
    phone = forms.CharField(label=u'Phone', max_length=200)
    address = forms.CharField(label=u'Your address', max_length=200)
    date = forms.CharField(label=u'Date and time', max_length=200)
    file = forms.FileField(label=u'Attach the file')

    response = forms.CharField(label=u'Comment', max_length=500,
        widget=forms.Textarea(attrs={'cols':'30', 'rows':'5'}))
    subject = u'Custom order form'

    serialized_fields = ('name', 'phone', 'address', 'response')

subject attribute appears in email subject.

serialized_fields attribute contains names of fields, those will be stored in DB.

Than, you need to put feedback forms in your

FEEDBACK_FORMS - dictionary object, describes feedback forms on your site. Every key-value pair stands for feedback form object. For example:

    'default': 'feedback.forms.FeedbackForm',
    'order': 'mysite.custom_feedback.forms.OrderForm',

Now we can include {% show_feedback order %} in template and get overriden form.

Custom templates

You can create custom templates if you have custom form class. Application search them by first. Template names are:

feedback/FORM_KEY/feedback.html, feedback/feedback.html
for rendering form itself
feedback/FORM_KEY/thankyou.html, feedback/thankyou.html
for rendering success response
feedback/FORM_KEY/email.txt, feedback/feedback_messages.txt
for rendering email text
