Yesterday Michal "opened" after an important change the
MailForm Module to be publicly available to all sites! This module let you define a form, let others fill it and receive the forms via email ! The content of the submitted form is sent to a list of recipients: [[module MailForm ... to="user1, user2,..."]] means

  • A comma-separated list of Wikidot user names
    • Spaces in user names should be replaced by - or _ ( underscore)
      • Same syntax as for user: search filter
    • User names do not need to be members or admins of the site

There is a new CountPages Module !
If you want to count the total of pages overall or for given categories/tags/parent/date - this module produces %%count%%. Easier to implement and works faster than any ListPages trick (which got a limit of 250 pages for pagination for a performance reason).
