Hi

First post so Hello World! Really enjoying this site.

I was just wondering what people consider to be the best way to build a Contact Us page.

I don't need to store the entered data, just email it to a couple of people.

I would want validation on the input.

I found this tutorial - is this broadly the correct approach?

Thanks

Simon

Table-less seems like the way to go for contact forms.

The only part missing from a quick look is the set up of an Email service. I can recommend , really easy to integrate in your Rails app: https://www.mailgun.com

As a bonus, I highly suggest you implement a captcha. There is a gem for googles recaptcha which is easy to install. Spammers will send you junk. They still get through recaptcha but less often.
