Feedback Action

This action displays a form for sending user feedback to the site administrator email, as specified in wakka.config.php.
It first validates the form, then sends it using the mail() function and displays a "thanks for your feedback"message

To use it you will first need to save the code below in a file called feedback.php in the actions folder.
Then simply add {{feedback}} in the page in which you want the feedback form to be displayed.
