So the workflow is this:New user --> uses contactform --> contactform sends to email@example.com --> contactdetails will be added to the easysocial database. --> user gets a email, please confirm you're registrationExisting user --> use contactform --> contactform will sends to firstname.lastname@example.org --> user gets a email, hey user please login to easysocial.
A form to register a new Joomla user account and send an account activation email
I see, from what I test, I think this contact form process doesn't trigger this Joomla event "onUserAfterSave" so the Easysocial "User - EasySocial" plugin doesn't get triggered when the user register via contact form.If you create a new user account from the backend Joomla user page, the Easysocial will assign the newbie badge for the user account since the Joomla create new user process did trigger for this event "onUserAfterSave".Perhaps you can consult with the contact form developer and see whether the contact form submit form did allow to trigger this event "onUserAfterSave"?
