JESSIN created the topic: Add a contact form for each K2 item
I'm using Joomla 2.5.11 + K2 v2.6.6.
I was searching a way to add a contact form for each k2 items.

In my case, the recipient must know from what items the form was sent.
As Fox contact sends in the email's footer, the link from what page the form was posted, it's good for me.

So here is a way to add a form in K2 extrafields fields.

Using this extension : Fox Contact
and this Tips: 'Show a form within an article'
http://www.fox.ra.it/forum/22-how-to/1403-show-a-form-within-an-article.html

Just create a specific module position
(for example : formcontactbienen}

Be sure to enable the "Content - Load Modules" plugin.

Back in K2 extra fields, insert a new text field : for example 'contact'
and in the default value field, insert :

{loadposition formcontactbienen}




That's work great.

Hope this tips will help someone :)


Note to the Fox contact Developer:

I spent a lot of time looking for a way to send one or more k2 extrafields automatically in the email.

I did not find a good solution. There are one or two extensions k2 only, but the form fields are limited and not as flexible as Fox Contact.

Maybe you should think about adding this option.
There are many webmaster who seeks such an option, for example site that presents product catalogs

Thank for your contribution. It has been moved to the "Documentation" section.

About K2 extra fields, I don't have a deep knowledge of K2.
Can you please create another post on "Feature requests" section, adding a couple of screenshots describing your "extra fields" request?
Thank you.
