borbole submitted a new resource:

Contact Us Enhancements (version 1.0) - It enhances the contact us form with a few extra options

I coded a similar mod for another forum and converted to xenforo at the request of a client.

Anyway, this mod will enhance the contact us form at your forum with a few extra options. It will create a new thread at a forum of your choosing anytime an user uses the Contact Us form. It will also send an automated pc to the users whenever they will submit a contact form.

After installation go to Options->Basic Board Information and configure the mod options to your needs/likings.

For more...

Can I request some additional functionality to this addon please?
In our contact form, we have a number of different recipient types: Admin, Sales, Editorial etc., and each of these has a number of email recipients set up. A number of main, cc and bcc recipients. Usually it's one person, but could be more.
So that when the contact form is submitted, an email is sent to those recipients. Is it possible to set that up, at all, maybe, please?

I'm interested to know also.
Yes, it works with 1.2 as well.

Can you please post the link to your forum so I can have a look at your contact form?

Thanks for the quick reply.
If people then want to contact us, they use this form:
http://www.avforums.com/sendemail.php
And I call that page with a couple of parameters - e.g.
http://www.avforums.com/sendemail.php?person=Forums Admin&subject=I have a question for AVForums admin
And depending on what is in the 'To' field, the email gets sent to the appropriate recipients.
So for example, messages sent to 'Sales' go to the sales guy and are cc'd to me.
If the 'To' field does not match an entry in our list, the form throws an error saying the recipient is invalid.

A drop-down list of recipients would probably be better. Like Admin, Sales, PR, Editorial etc.
This provides a bullet proof way to email the right person in the organisation.
As a forum grows, it's very unlikely that a single person will want to get all the emails, and for many it's most convenient for our staff to have the enquiry drop directly into their mail inbox.

This looks like something quite different from what my mod does. It would be better suited as a separate add on.
