Contact form

Goal: ease the task to the site admin to create a custom contact form adapted to the specific case of that site. New fields can be added asking questions specific for the site.

A contact us form is one of the most obvious uses of trackers in Tiki. They are very simple, and yet they take many steps to configure. This profile will enable the tracker feature and create a basic "contact us" form to which you will be able to add additional fields.
