Hi Crisses,

ZAP uses PmWiki standard PmWiki input form elements, (actually any
forms input types/markups you want).  It does not supply any CANNED
forms so it's all about flexibility (exception ZAPcart).  ZAP simply
process the $_POST var on submit.  So yes, you can certainly customize
zap input fields.

Also, ZAP has a built in conditional that allows in essense you to say
if field subject != "", do not submit the form, or send to a different
email account, or even (perhaps) add to blocklist, delete user
account, whatever.  No extra coding required, unless you do something
really fancy for this.


PS.  No offence to mailform, but if you want to do anything more
creative than a simple email forms, ZAP is the way to go.
