Just getting introduced to this nice and simple CMS. Here is a simple Widget site. I have more to do on it visually to dress it up a bit but I think it is working okay except got the contact form.

I'd like to show it to those I think could be potential users of this system.

BTW How do I get rid of the Admin Link?

Very nice! Put a showadmin="0" in your dhtmlmenu tag and the admin link will disappear.

Thanks Wishy

Refer my bug report thought - keep losing the tag in the content when I save the form which messes up the code and consequently you can't get to the Contact Page on this site.

For now, turn off the WYSIWYG in the User Preferences when editing that page. I'll see if I can fix this, though, it starts getting tricky when you have to mess with htmlarea's internals.

I have realised that I can user the Contact plugin already supplied and modfiy function.contact_form.php to build the form and of course this solves the problem.

I can add as many fields as I like with that though I have not worked out yet how to do get the checkboxes to send the values.

I got those checkboxes - nothing wrong with them - just a stupid error my end.

Here is the code I used to extend the fields on the existing plugin (naturally thanks to Brett Batie who originally put this together).

function smarty_cms_function_contact_form($params, &$smarty) {

if (empty($params['email'])){
echo '
A email address to send to must be specified in order to use this plugin.
$to = $params['email'];

$style = true;
if (!empty($params['style']))$style = $params['style'];
$name = '';
if (!empty($_POST['name'])) $name = trim($_POST['name']);
$email = '';
if (!empty($_POST['email'])) $email = trim($_POST['email']);
$subject = '';
if (!empty($_POST['subject'])) $subject = trim($_POST['subject']);
$phone = '';
if (!empty($_POST['phone'])) $phone = trim($_POST['phone']);
$circle = '';
if (!empty($_POST['circle'])) $circle = trim($_POST['circle']);
$pentagon = '';
if (!empty($_POST['pentagon'])) $pentagon = trim($_POST['pentagon']);
$hexagon = '';
if (!empty($_POST['hexagon'])) $hexagon = trim($_POST['hexagon']);
$cross = '';
if (!empty($_POST['cross'])) $cross = trim($_POST['cross']);
$message = '';
if (!empty($_POST['message'])) $message = trim($_POST['message']);

$extra = "From: \"$name\r\nReply-To: $email\r\n";
echo '
echo ($style)?' style="font-weight: bold; color: red;"':'';
echo '>';

if (empty($name)) {
echo 'Please Enter Your Name.';
}elseif (empty($email)) {
echo 'Please Enter Your Email Address.';
}elseif (empty($subject)) {
echo 'Please Enter a Subject.';
}elseif (empty($message)) {
echo 'Please Enter a Message.';
}elseif (!validEmail($email)) {
echo 'Your Email Address is Not Valid.';
}elseif (@mail($to, $subject, "
My interest is in\n
$circle - $pentagon - $hexagon - $cross\n\n
$message\n", $extra)){
echo "Your message was successfully sent.
echo 'Sorry, the message was not sent. The server may be down!';

echo '';

Your Name:>
Your Email Address:>

Are the links at the foot of the page static or auto-generated? If so what did you use? I see the css for botmenu but when I do a google search all I find is endless links to botmenu.htm.

Nice work, very good colors.

cross || pentagon || hexagon || circle

I would like to say I was extremely clever - but I wasn't - they are manually created -I naturally would set it up for a client that there was ageneric to top button so site could be as automated as possible..

unless I knew someone cleverer than me..if that is possible :>

Thanks for the comments.
