    This Add-on creates a Thread when somebody sends the contactformular, instead of sending the mail.

    After you upload the library directory into your xenforo directory, you have to go into the options ->Basic Board Information. There's now a new option "Contactthread Forum ID" where you can choose your forum.

    Changehistory:

    1.0.1
    use now Forumchooser Option instead an input field
    1.2.0
    now the mailadress is also shown in the thread
    new option: send also the mail (this means, that the thread will be created and the admin will also get the mail)
    1.3.0
    Including IP in the message
    Using a phrase for the thread.
    If you want, you can customize it (Phrasename: ragtek_contactthread_message )

    This add-on requires my add-on helper framework!

    (Donations are welcome, if you like my add-ons and want more of this great stuff for free in the feature^^ paypal )

    Use the PHP Callback function. I have yet to get it to work, but there are some good examples in /library/XenForo/Options/. Use the PHP build the select menu.

    Yea, that's really handy.

    I use this in all my boards, because i'm admin in over 20 boards, my mail is set as the contact mail, but why should i get all this messages, when i have other admins/mods which could answer/help the user^^
    So i have a "secret board" where the crew have access to it, and they can decide what to do, discuss there, etc...

    i've seen it, but i didn't find any place in the code, where they use it, so i couldn't get it to work^^

    I attempted to use it to get a drop down until I figured out it was "1 = Something 2 = something else" etc. I am still getting the hang of it, so I failed. Miserably. :)

    Great work ragtek, but I'm wondering is it possible to have the contact us go into the ticket system similar to reported posts?

    Hadn't checked the "reported elements" system so i don't know.

    Very nice ragtek. Only issue I found is that when a guest submits a contact message, their email address isn't passed for chance of response to them, as the ACP contact a user can be used to then reply to a guest message by staff, all the while using a noreply email address as the boards default.

    Does this need updating to Beta 3? I installed it fine,but the options menu is missing.

    There is no Options Menu.
    You have to go to the XenForo options "Basic Board Information"
