#489 closed enhancement (fixed)

Adding text to Rosetta contact forms

Description

I get a lot of emails via http://ru.wordpress.org/contact/. Most of them are lost password requests, some are copyright infringement reports, and the rest are other support requests.

See also the thread on Polyglots, which suggests introducing an option to disable the contact form.

I would like to add some text to the form with links to FAQ pages in Codex (the same pages we generally link to in forum replies).

When I open the page for editing, I see this as the content:

The contents of this page are filled automatically, you don't need to spend time here. Just change the title.

There should be a way to replace this with a text that would be displayed on the front-end.

Rosetta theme: Allow admins to customize the Contact form introduction.

If they change the page contents, the new contents will be displayed instead of the default introduction.

Since all of the sites currently have the "The contents of this page are filled automatically, you don't need to spend time here. Just change the title." text in post_content, just adding the_content() to the template was undesireable, because then all the sites would be displaying that message until each one was manually changed (which will probably never happen for many sites).

So, I thought the simplest transition would be to display the_content() if the admin had changed it from the original message, but otherwise leave the default introduction.

So, admins can now replace the current introduction by changing the post content to be whatever they'd like.

This works great, thanks.

Apparently some sites had an additional sentence in the default content. Some examples:

They all currently display default content instead of a proper introduction:

Please, neither delete this page, nor change its slug!

The contents of this page are filled automatically, you don't need to spend time here. Just change the title.

I'd suggest using strpos() instead of string comparison, see meta-489.patch.

In 720:

Rosetta theme: Make the detection of default content less strict.

There are a few sites with variants on the default contact form introduction (e.g.,
http://en-ca.wordpress.org/contact/) and the previous method was too strict to include them.
