Follow this tutorial: www.ssbits.com/creating-a-simple-contact-form/

Instead of creating a ContactPage.php add the code to your Page.php and your footer template.

This is just the sort of thing that I would like on my personal site but I'm having issues -- when I add form code to Page.php I can't rebuild DB. Don't think there's anything deprecated as it looks like fairly standard php expressions -- but then again I'm really a graphic designer, not a programmer per se.

Can somebody please advise:

1. What is the difference between 'private static' and simply 'static'

2. Has the expression 'static' become deprecated in SS3?

3. Do I need to 'thread' (concantenate) form code into code already on Page.php (below)

TIA

<?php
class Page extends SiteTree {

   private static $db = array('SidebarHTML' => 'HTMLText'
   );

   private static $has_one = array(
   );
function getCMSFields() {
      $fields = parent::getCMSFields();
      $fields -> addFieldToTab("Root.Sidebar",new HTMLEditorField("SidebarHTML"));
      return $fields;
   }
   
   
   
}
class Page_Controller extends ContentController {

   /**
    * An array of actions that can be accessed via a request. Each array element should be an action name, and the
    * permissions or conditions required to allow the user to access it.
    *
    * <code>
    * array (
    * 'action', // anyone can access this action
    * 'action' => true, // same as above
    * 'action' => 'ADMIN', // you must have ADMIN permissions to access this action
    * 'action' => '->checkAction' // you can only access this action if $this->checkAction() returns true
    * );
    * </code>
    *
    * @var array
    */
   private static $allowed_actions = array (
   );

   public function init() {
      parent::init();
      // You can include any CSS or JS required by your project here.
      // See: http://doc.silverstripe.org/framework/en/reference/requirements
      
      // Note: you should use SS template require tags inside your templates
      // instead of putting Requirements calls here. However these are
      // included so that our older themes still work
      
      Requirements::javascript(THIRDPARTY_DIR.'/jquery/jquery.min.js'); //include jquery 1.7.2 bundled with ss
      //Requirements::javascript('http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.7.2.min.js');
      Requirements::javascript('themes/'. SSViewer::current_theme() .'/javascript/navscript.js'); //link to js file in current theme folder
         
      //Requirements::themedCSS('reset');
      //Requirements::themedCSS('960-12-col');
      //Requirements::themedCSS('Layout');
      //Requirements::themedCSS('Typography');
      //Requirements::themedCSS('form');
   }
