Last update: 2022-06-20 15:54:56 UTC


Provides a simple but powerful contact form built onto the Observer Pattern. Plug any listener you want to your contact form's submission


  • Add mongodb configuration files
  • Add unit tests
  • Comment methods and attributes
  • Cleanup

(Quite the same as for GithubBundle, we are sorry for that methodology but we'll correct that soon).


  • Compatible with Doctrine ORM and ODM thanks to a generic repository.
  • Model is extensible at will
  • Observer Pattern designed for more flexibility
  • Every class is customizable


Using submodules If you prefer instead to use git submodules, the run the following:

$ git submodule add git://github.com/rz/ContactBundle.git    src/Rz/ContactBundle

Using the vendors script

Add the following lines in your deps file:


If you want to connect the email listener, install SwitfMailer and configure it

$ git submodule add git://github.com/swiftmailer.git    src/vendor/swiftmailer

or via deps file


In your config, add :

    transport:  smtp
    encryption: ssl
    auth_mode:  login
    host:       domain.tld
    username:   name@domain.tld
    password:   your_secret

Add the Rz namespace to your autoloader

// app/autoload.php
    'Rz' => __DIR__.'/../vendor/bundles',
    // your other namespaces

Add ContactBundle to your application kernel

// app/AppKernel.php
public function registerBundles()
    return array(
        // ...
        new Rz\ContactBundle\RzContactBundle(),
        // ...

Update your schema

app/console doctrine:schema:update --force

Adding the form to your templates

In your template, you just have to add (if you are using Twig)

{% render "RzContactBundle:Contact:form" with { 'method': app.request.method }, { 'query': app.request.request.all } %}

Since version 2.0.13 of Symfony you must send your form "POST" data using "query" parameter. That's because "render" tag is being processed as a sub-request. And since that version all sub-requests are forced to use "GET" method therefore your embedded ContactController will loose all "POST" data if you miss it. As well you should explicitly specify the request method in "method" parameter to let the embedded ContactController recognize that your form is submitted.


In your app/config.yml (given you are using YAML for your configuration file)

            type:               rz_contact_contact
            handler:            rz_contact.contact.form.handler.default
            name:               rz_contact_contact_form
            validation_groups:  [Contact]
    form: ~                                 # (optional) class managing the contact form
    model: ~                                # (optional) class managing the model
    connectors:                             # the list of "listeners" (or connectors here)
        email:                              # connecting the email listener
            recipients: contact@rz.net    # giving him the recipient(s) email(s)
        database:                           # connecting the database listener
            db_driver: orm                  # giving him the database driver
        file: ~                             # connecting the file logger listener

If you want a simple contact form only sending an email to you contact mailbox, then you just have to add to your configuration file

            recipients: cont@ct.me

It you want to use a custom template/view instead of the default one (RzContactBundle:Contact:form.html.twig), you can add the view parameter with the name of your view. Example:

			view:               CompanyExampleBundle:Contact:form.html.twig

Using Akismet for Spam Detection

skip the step if you dont want to check for spam, by default no spam will be detected. Install the OrnicarAkismentBundle and configure it properly. see the docs for more information.

define the service in your service container

        service: ornicar_akismet

now all your Contact Request will be checked by Akismet.

if you want to implement your own Detector simply set the class for the detector

        class: My\Bundle\MyDetector

note that the class should implement the SpamDetectorInterface

or if you want a whole new service:

        service: my_detector_service
