RFC for Contact Us module

Mindaugas suggestions

I don't know if it fits for Seagull in general, but for my installation I have changed line in !ContactUsMgr::sendEmail() from:
'fromEmail' => $oContact->email,
'fromEmail' => "\"{$contacterName}\" <{$oContact->email}>",
to see user name instead of email.

Some more things regarding 'contact us' emails:

  • There is no support for text-only 'contact us' emails. I hate html emails :-):-) Could be some option in configuration.
  • Hardcoded 'headerTemplate' and 'footerTemplate' variables should be moved from SGL_Emailer class to template(s) to make emails more customizable.
  • Even email title from ContactUsMgr class could moved to template or at least changed from: 'subject' => SGL_String::translate('Contact Enquiry from') .' '. $confsite?name?,


'subject' => sprintf(SGL_String::translate('contact us mail title'), $confsite?name?),

and using unique mail title label not used anywhere else (at the moment 'Contact Enquiry from' label is used in email body template).

Werners suggestions

I need to map an email adress to an enquiry type. Also i'd like to move enqiry types out of lang-file into ini file.
so my suggestion for ini enqiry syntax is file is:

enquiry1 = General Enquiry
enquiry2 = Special Enquiry
enquiry3 = Anything
enquiry1 = Allgemeine Anfrage
enquiry2 = Spezielle Anfrage
enquiry3 = Irgendwas

Now you can add email adresses or user-ids per enquiry or per enquiry and language:

default = default@bar.com
enquiry1 = foo@bar.com

So far coded in #448

Next step would be "Email Adress per enquiry type and language":

default = "foo@bar.com";
enquiry3 = user:1; // use email adress of user_id 1
  • If no email adress for a language is set, the default email will be used
  • If no email adress for a enquiry is used the default email for this language will be used.

This should enable a simple but fine grained system.
