  1. Create a Model
  2. Create your FormType
  3. Add to configuration
  4. Create your HTML

Create a Model

Create a new model in your project with all the fields you want to add to have. This new model could extend from the base contact model. But it's up to you, if you want to create your own, just do it. But make sure your class implements the ContactInterface.

namespace ProjectBundle\Model;

use Enhavo\Bundle\ContactBundle\Model\Contact as BaseContact;

class Contact extends BaseContact

Create your FormType

Create a new FormType for your model and add the fields, for example we use here firstname and surname.

use Symfony\Component\Form\AbstractType;
use ProjectBundle\Model\Contact;

class ContactType extends AbstractType
    public function buildForm(FormBuilderInterface $builder, array $options)
        $builder->add('firstname', 'text', array(
            'label' => 'Firstname'

        $builder->add('surname', 'text', array(
            'label' => 'Surname'

        //... other fields from parent class

    public function configureOptions(OptionsResolver $resolver)
            'class' => Contact::class

Add to configuration

To tell enhavo which classes we use, you need to define your new form and model to the enhavo.yml. In the enhavo_contact section under forms you can define your new form. The type name could be any name defined be you. It's good to name it like the contact model, so if you have more contact forms in your application, its better to find which config is apply.

        contact: #this is the type name
            model: ProjectBundle\Model\Contact
            form: ProjectBundle\Form\Type\ContactFormType
                form: ProjectBundle:Contact:form.html.twig
                recipient: ProjectBundle:Contact:recipient.html.twig
                confirm: ProjectBundle:Contact:confirm.html.twig
                page: ProjectBundle:Contact:page.html.twig
            recipient: '%mailer_to%'
            from: '%mailer_from%'
            subject: Contact Form
            translation_domain: ~
            confirm_mail: true

Create your HTML

In your html, just add a form that use the route enhavo_contact_submit as action. Don't forgot to add also define the type.

<form action="{{ path('enhavo_contact_submit', { type: 'contact' }) }}" id="contact_form" method="post">
    {{ form_row(form.firstname) }}
    {{ form_row(form.surname) }}
    {{ form_row( }}
    {{ form(form.message) }}
    {{ form_row(form._token) }}
    <button class="submit" name="sendfeedback" value="Send Message">Senden</button>

You probably also want change the recipient mail text. Just make sure you have defined your own template under recipient in the form configuration in the enhavo.yml. In the template file you can write your own text now. To overwrite other mail text, just configure all to your benefits.

    New Message!<br>
    Firstname: {{ data.firstname }}<br>
    Surname: {{ data.surname }}<br>
    E-Mail: {{ }}<br>
    Message: {{ data.message }}
