Hi,

I set up a menu entry in joomla 2.5.4 with menu type "single contact". I can select the contact in required parameters and comfirm my selecten.

However when i klick on my new menu entry to show the contact form the only thing I see is a joomla message "contact not found". This is very very confusing since I was able to select the contact from a list in joomlas admin interface.

Whats going on here? Does someone know any solution thats working better than what I tried? i only want to provide a way so users visiting my site can contact me by email.

Another related thing I do not understand is that I can add more users to joomla and also can log in as such a new user, but when I try to create a contact link by "single contact" menu entry the only user on the list shown is admin, no one else none of the users I created. I would have expected to see all the users I created on this list as well as admin?

Have a nice day
Rainer

Just in case someone else has the same problem ....

I found a solution without actually knowing what was wrong. What I did to get rid of the problem was:

Go to Components->Contacs, open the contact I wanted to use, then in Publishing Options I selected a user to be used for the "Created by" field. Next i saved the contacs settings and since then the contact is found when selected via "Single Contact" link.
