Add contact form to Trac site

Notice: This plugin is unmaintained and available for adoption.


How often did you have a question about a software project and had no way to contact one of the developers? This is where this plugin comes into play. It provides a contact form to allow users to contact the project team members. The contact form is very basic: it consists of the necessary fields (name, email, subject, message). It is supposed to be a simple contact form for small (or new) projects that didn't have the time (yet) to setup a more advanced contact form. Other fields are currently outside the scope of this plugin.

The contact form is available through an entry in the main navigation or under /contactform:

There are two configuration settings that drive the behavior of this plugin. Both can be found in the [contactform] section in your trac.ini file:

  • recipients - a comma separated list containing all users that shall receive the contact mail. This list may contain usernames as well as plain email addresses.
  • intro_text - a text that is displayed above the contact form.

displays a list of all users that will be informed about ticket changes of a certain ticket. Additionally it informs the user about the current notification.

Both settings can also be set using the webadmin interface.
