Contact form plugin for Django CMS with spam protection and i18n.
If you want to use ReCAPTCHA you have to get a Public and Private Key from http://www.google.com/recaptcha. You can get them for free.
The Akismet spam protection method requires an Akismet API Key which is obtainable from http://akismet.com/ For private persons this is free, too.
If you decide to use the ReCAPTCHA spam protection method you need to install the python library "recaptcha-client" (package python-recaptcha in Debian).
If you use Akismet for spam protection "akismet" is needed. You also need to set your domain url in django admin "sites".
Both libraries can be installed by pip or easy_install.
It is recommended but not required to use South. Again it can be easily installed by or pip or easy_install.
You can simply type into a terminal pip install cmsplugin-contact or easy_install cmsplugin-contact.
You can download a zipped archive from http://github.com/maccesch/cmsplugin-contact/downloads.
Unzip the file you downloaded. Then go in your terminal and cd into the unpacked folder. Then type python setup.py install in your terminal.
Put 'cmsplugin_contact' in your INSTALLED_APPS section in settings.py. Don't forget to syncdb your database or migrate if you're using South.
If you don't want to enter the ReCATPCHA keys in the admin interface you can provide them through these settings.
The same as for ReCAPTCHA goes fo Akismet.
See examples/cmsplugin_custom_contact how to subclass cmsplugin_contact and add custom fields into it. You can override properties of the subclassed ContactPlugin and use your own templates and classes.
