Simple contact template
« on: July 22, 2018, 09:26:42 AM »
Today I was trying to get working a simple contact template, that automatically save its contents as a local .txt file. To apply this template, follow these steps:

1. Create a folder named, for example as: contact (add it as real folder)

2. Extract from the zip the "hfs.diff.tpl" of the version you've choosen.

3. Copy that file (hfs.diff.tpl) to the "contact" (or whatever name you choose) folder you made on the first step.

» Versions:

Macro-Method = Using Form + Macros (without needing upload permissions)
XML-Method = Using XMLHttpRequest (needs upload permissions to anyone)
EML-Email = Same as XML-Method, but it saves in .eml format instead of .txt

» Description:

Both version are currently functional, but still need to add some kind of field validation (to check if the fields are empty or not), and perhaps we can also show that the message was successfully sent using another methods than showing a simple 'alert' (getting some answer back from the server, at least in the v1.0b-XML-Method). The v1.0a-Macro-Method could have redirect to page like (after the form was submitted):

Code: [Select]
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">
<html xmlns="">
<head><title>Message successfully sent</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
</head><body><h3 style="color:black;">The message was successfully sent!</h3>

Thanks to dj for his help! :) (without him, this couldn't be done)
Any other enhancements/suggestions are welcome!
