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?
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.
