Version 3.0
Compatible with MyBB 1.2.x
Feb 7th 2007

A complete form allows visitors to customize and send you an email.

Upload contact_act.php to ./inc/plugins
Upload contact.lang.php to ./inc/languages/YOUR LANGUAGE
Upload contact.php to the main board’s directory
Go to Admin CP > Board Settings > Plugin manager > Activate

Setting-up settings
In Admin CP > Board Settings > Change > Contact+, there you have 3 settings
  • Message subject: You may edit the subject of the message that will be sent to you, {visitor} will be replaced by the visitor’s name that was input in the field.
  • Email address: the email which the messages will be sent to. By default this email is the admin email setting unless you edit it.
  • Verification image: turn on Captcha verification image on/off. new

The link to the contact page will replace the default one of the board at the footer, the form looks as the photo below.


Email address is a required field, an invalid entry will result an error notifying the user to correct or input a valid email address.

The captcha verification image is a new feature which will help a lot in reducing mass contacting.

Upon sending the email, a friendly redirection message will appear, however this message is subject to be disabled in case the friendly redirection setting of the board was set to off.

Some problems that you might face actually are only a single one.

In case you have deactivated the mod, and you found that the link at the bottom haven’t been reverted to the default, that could be a result to some early modification the footer template had.
For that reason, what you are requested to do, is to go to Admin CP > Templates > Modify / Delete > Expand > footer

Over there find

<a href="$mybb->settings[‘bburl’]/ contact.php">

Replace with

<a href="$mybb->settings[‘contactlink’]">

To translate the plugin, you will need to edit the contact.lang.php.
And please submit them here.

No previous version is compatible with 1.2.x.
