Every time that you post a problem, PLEASE add the Joomla and the extension's versions and revisions (for example: Joomla 3.3.6, Contact Enhanced 3.3.5), PHP version and Server's Operating System. If you only manage only one site it is easier if you edit your profile and just add that information to your signature. Don't forget to add a detailed description of the problem. If possible, write down all steps to simulate the problem.

Before submitting a new post, PLEASE make sure you are running the latest version, test in different browsers (IE, FF, Chrome,..) and clear Joomla and browser's cache after every change you make.

Also, most questions are already answered in our FAQ and in iFAQ and Contact Enhanced documentation pages.

× Contact Enhanced is a contact component manager created to replace Joomla! core contacts component and add lots of advantages and new features (see Features ) and it offers many plugins and modules for several different purposes,

According to the documentation I should be able to add icons for the following


  • Address Icon. Icon to use for Address. Select an image file in the drop-down list box. These images are located in the 'images/M_images' folder.

    E-mail Icon. (Hide/Show/Use Global) Whether or not to display a button to allow a link to the Article to be e-mailed. This displays a form that allows the user to send an e-mail with a link to the current Article.

    Telephone Icon. Icon to use for Telephone. Select an image file in the drop-down list box. These images are located in the 'images/M_images' folder.

    Mobile Icon. Icon to use for Mobile phone. Select an image file in the drop-down list box. These images are located in the 'images/M_images' folder.

    Fax Icon. Icon to use for Fax. Select an image file in the drop-down list box. These images are located in the 'images/M_images' folder.
etc.

But there is no 'images/M_images' folder. Do I need to reinstall?

Dear tmichel,

Thank you for contacting us today.

This has changed and I'll update our documentation with the correct wording.
Contact Enhanced tries to inherit the CSS styling as much as possible, therefore these images are now loaded by your template (using CSS classes), or alternatively, you can choose which icons OR CSS classes to use in the Component Options under the Icons tab.

If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

My template doesn't seem to have a set of standard icons. What size/dimensions are you normally looking for. I can make these png or svg.

The icon size is really up to you (usually around 16px to 24px), however I don't actually recommend you to create your own icons. Instead, you can use CSS Icons, if your template already loads a Font Icon such as Font-Awesome. Go to Components -> Contact Enhanced -> Options and under the Icons tab, set the Settings option to CSS Icons and then enter the CSS class or classes you want for the icon.

Best wishes,

OK, I used the Joomla IcoMoon icons, but that isn't very satisfying. The better solution is to install FontAwsome Icons and use something like <span class="far fa-address-card"></span>. Would I add this as "far fa-address-card" using the ContactEnhanced interface?

Is it preferable to use a Joomla FontAwsome plugin, or is it preferable to just add the FontAwsome libraries and then reference the classes like "far fa-address-card" in ContactEnhanced?

I would just add the following to index.php after copying the libraries to /your-path-to-fontawesome/css/

<link href="/your-path-to-fontawesome/css/fontawesome.css" rel="stylesheet">
