This is a small mod I coded for a client of mine and thought to share it here as well for all those that might have a need for it too.

This mod will send automatically a pm to users whenever they will submit a contact form. You can also choose if you want the contact form to be posted as a thread automatically at a forum of your choosing. This can be handy if you want the other members of your staff to view the contact forms submissions. You can also choose to increase the post count of the user or not when the contact thread is automatically created.

After installation go to Options->Site Name / URL / Contact Details and all the way down you will see 6 new options. Configure the options to your needs/likings.

For more info, please have a look at the attached screenshots.

Well I had to play with it just a tad more, came home from taking the wife out to dinner, and found a whole bunch of emails from this that suddenly showed up.
Of course there were no threads made but I am left to wonder if they were delayed in a batch email or something, maybe preventing the thread to be made?

Dunno, cant dig into it right now, but thought I would mention.

It isnt my server, maybe my vb mail settings?

I have this setup on a not so busy website, so I tried some email settings,...

old vb options email settings :

Email Flood Check - 60
Use Mailqueue System - Yes (no locking)
Use Cron Based Sending - Yes
Number of Emails to Send Per Batch - 10
E-Mail Send Delay - None

new vb options email settings :

Email Flood Check - 0
Use Mailqueue System - No
Use Cron Based Sending - No
Number of Emails to Send Per Batch - 10
E-Mail Send Delay - None


Then I tried to do a Contact Us and got the email immediatly but no thread created.
Second try produced a thread.

Ok, I have been having issues with another mod here and the result of my problems has been the cron system.

I feel the same problem here.

I know I posted above that my email settings didnt change the faulty operation, but now it seems to be working properly.

My guts tell me that if these two settings in the vb email settings arent set to be off or "no":

Use Mailqueue System
Use Cron Based Sending


That the emailer doesnt release the thread creation as it is waiting on the email cron.

I am testing this as I speak, but these two settings may have to be turned off to make this setting work.

Ok with me as my board isnt a heavy usage board and my server can handle the load of shooting the emails out on the fly instead of every ten minutes.

These two might have to be added to the instructions of this mod.

borbole, can you verify this is the settings your client uses for email?



More as I test this....

Yes, the coder explained his client wanted it that way. And he posted the same mod here.

I hope to find a solution for that too as it work better for my needs too.

I will check about the email thing. But my client disabled that option for the contact form by leaving the email fields for that part blank and as far as I know there have not been any issues at all.

I found that if you were to leave the contact email blank, vbulletin by default loads the contact webmaster email and still ships out the email. We might be talking about something different, if so my bad.

Sure:



It simply uses text, rather than a link.
