Hey guys i just have the question how i could remove the name, subject or Message field at the contact form.

i know they are located in /templates/.../html/com_contact/contact/default_form.php but when i remove the fields just in the layout i couldn't send the form cause of the required fields.

Here you can find some more information where i got it from "How can I completely and safely remove the subject field in com_contact?

The probem is the file components/com_contact/models/forms/contact.xml doesnt have anymore the code for contact_subject. so anyone know how i could solve this with joomla 3.8?

  • Welcome to Joomla Stack Exchange. Just out of curiosity, why would you want to remove these fields? – Lodder Oct 2 '17 at 13:24

    Have you considered using a 3rd party extension which may be a little nore flexible? – Lodder Oct 2 '17 at 13:39
  • Yes i could try another extension but than I have to rebuild all contact forms and that would be lots of work :/ i thought it would be easier to remove the default fields – Strika Oct 4 '17 at 8:42
