Multiple Contact Forms?

Post by Huhu » Fri May 08, 2020 9:38 am

The contact form plug-in is fantastic, since it saves a load of time with coding your own. Thanks for it!
Question: I would need a number of different contact forms for the same CMS. So not just one, but some specialised forms (for registering for events, for example).

How would it be possible to use the contact form plug-in more than once? Just installing the plug-in two times wouldn't work, at least when I tried the most simple solution.

I haven't tried this in a long time, but I seem to remember that you could at least have multiple instances of the contact for plugin installed if (and probably only if) just one (or maybe none) of them used the standard form and the others the so-called "dynamic form" (which offers different options for fields used in the form)?

The contact form plugin has the option to emit additional text in the backend, which is usually used to differentiate between multiple instances of the same plugin (see HTML nugget). That would also indicated that this is possible. I would assume that multiple instances of the contactform plugin need to have different permalinks and URL shorthand names as well.

You say you tried installing multiple instances of the plugin already. How/why did it not work, did you get some sort or error message?
