Contactify Plugin for DocPad

A fully customizable DocPad contact form plugin.


npm install --save docpad-plugin-contactify

Or add it to your package.json file

Usage (more coming soon)


Configure the path to be intercepted on your server and the email details for sending out form data in the DocPad configuration file (aka

            path: '/contact-form'
            transport: {
                service: 'Gmail',
                auth: {
                    user: '',
                    pass: 'password'
            redirect: '/'
            to: ''


  • path: should match the POST action on your site's form.

  • transport: configures an SMTP transport instance using nodemailer (any email account should do, it is where the mail is sent from)

  • from: you can here force a value to put in the 'from' field in the sent email. By default the from value is the email of the person who send the contact form.

  • redirect: options that will be overwritten by the hidden input called redirect in your form (if it exists)

  • to: list of destination email addresses for sending form submissions (comma separated)

Then create your contact form:

<form action="/contact-form" method="POST">
        <legend>Contact form</legend>
        <input type="hidden" name="redirect" value="<%- @document.url %>?formSent=1">
            <label for="name">Name/company</label>
            <input type="text" id="name" name="name" placeholder="Name/company" />
            <label for="email">Your email adress</label>
            <input type="email" id="email" name="email" placeholder="" />
            <label for="message">My message</label>
            <textarea id="message" name="message" cols="10" rows="10" placeholder="Your message..."></textarea>
            <button type="submit" value="Send" name="contact-send" id="contact-send">Send</button>

Note that here the hidden input 'redirect' will redirect to the page where the form was sent from, you can hard-code any other url you want in there
