How do I add another field to the contact form?

Under name, email and subject, I'd like to add another text field for phone number. In the future I may need to add another couple of text feilds. I can't see a quick way of doing that..?

Any ideas welcome :)

Thanks!

The contact form is fixed, but Joe Audette has a great product that you can buy for exactly this case: Form Wizard Pro. We have bought it and our webmaster is very happy with it. The only thing it's currently missing is the ability to add instructional text within the form. That's something that Joe may be addressing in a future version.

Alternatively, if you are a developer, you could make your own custom feature using Visual Studio.

Hi Jamie - thanks for that, although $99 is pretty steep for a contact form. I downloaded the mojoportal source originally to see if it dynamically picked up form elements - it doesn't (obviously), and then thought I could just hack in my changes - but didn't want to lose them every time I upgrade.

Guess I'll have to make it from scratch. Bit disappointed really because Drupal and Joomla have this sort of thing built in, but I have to use a .NET solution. Cheers though.

Hi,

You don't need to do this from scratch. Really, you could put your form into an ascx and install it as a feature on your site. You could also copy the ContactForm code, modify it and install it as a feature. See "Cloning an Existing Feature" for more information.

HTH,
Joe D.
