Dagon Design Form Mailer Plugin – Version 4!

  • Version 4.0 of my secure form mailer plugin for WordPress has been released! For those of you who have used previous versions, this is a massive update.

    (I also have a non-plugin version of this script available for those of you who want a highly customizable PHP form mailer for your non-WordPress sites.)

    What’s New:

    I have completely revised the form creation system. You can now customize your form any way you like, with any number of text fields, textareas, checkboxes, radio buttons, drop-downs, fieldsets, custom text boxes, and more. You can assign everything it’s own class for easy customization, setup required fields, max input lengths, choose from verification methods, and much more.

    The best part is that you can custom make any form you like – without writing any code whatsoever.

    Here is an example form structure:


    And here is what it generates (my contact form):


    While the system may look a bit complex at first, it is really easy to use. Each line represents a field/item and they are all documented on the web page.

    Of course, that just shows a tiny bit of what the form can do. It only shows a few field types used. You could have 10 of each type of form element if you wanted, in any order, etc.. 🙂

    And just like the last version, you can send to one recipient, multiple recipients (cc or bcc), or let the user select one from a drop-down menu.

    Of course there is image verification as well, and too many other things to mention 🙂

    Let me know what you think!

  • I have not tried the plugin, but I looked over the PHP, and it looks great on your site! Keep up the good work 🙂

    Thanks 🙂

    I was happy even with the former one 🙂 – but I’ll take a closer look to this update. Thanks!

    Captcha still not working in the new version. Empty image. It’s accessing the verify file, since I changed the color of the image bg and that’s showing fine. No other plugins are interfering.

    Also, instead of plopping all that css into the header, why not make it a separate stylesheet and call it from the script? Make life a lot easier on front enders. I’m going to try to set this up that way if I ever get the working– or ripped out entirely.

    There are several reasons why the image verification might not be working on your server.

    One common reason I see is that not all versions of PHP support PNG creation through GD very well.

    To test, replace ‘png’ with ‘gif’ in the verification file. There are two instances to change.

    Then see if it works for you 🙂

    Thanks for the plugin but I can’t get the verify image to appear either. I have tried changing the png to gif but still shows no image. Any other ideas? Thanks.

    Did you specify the full path to the contact page and verification script in the options?

    Yes Aleister but still no image.

    I managed to shut down the captcha (didn’t get it working)– but the script doesn’t mail, just sends you back to the post page– with all the info gone. FYI, the server is PHP as CGI. Most things written in php work, some don’t. This one doesn’t.

    Can I see a link? (if you prefer, you can email it using the form on my site)
