What does it do?

This extension provides an ajax based feedback form. Options include “Yes / No / Yes, but.. comment”. When i saw this feedback form the first time on the internet, i knew that's what i wanted for my web projects. so why not make one for TYPO. Enjoy :).

  • CSS themesWhite, White Classic, White Solid, Silver, Red, Green, Blue, Beige, Pink
  • Multilanguage supportIncluded: English, German - extensible via locallang.xml
  • Custom hover areaDefault hover area is the basic form - a second custom area can be defined via class-attribute (“feedback_area”')
  • Animation optionsYes/no - if the form should fade-in on mouseover or always be visible
