Beside the google maps api and jquery mapped contact form uses jquery.validate for fancy offline validation. Jquery.form is used to send and ajax request with the entries to a simple php backend. The backend php script just sends an email with the input.
It was a bit tricky to make the form and the jquery plugins playing well inside the map info window. But finally i found a nice solution. Thats how it looks like:
[mcf id=”map_canvas” width=”640px” height=”400px” map_center=”48.6909283, 8.939690299999938″ map_zoom=”10″ listener=”mouseover” locations=”(office, 48.6909283, 8.939690299999938, house_blue, firstname.lastname@example.org);”]
Mapped contact form works really well if you have multiple offices or stores and offer a user friendly way to contact each of them.
It’s available in different flavours for some dollars:
