It has by deafault 4 fields Name, Email, Telephone and Comment box where as Name, Email and Comments are the required and Telephone is not required fields. Since it is by default functionality of the Magento so all the message and fields are predefined. Some time we need to change Success and Error message of the magento Contact Us form, it is very easy and you can change it by using the steps given below:
Magento Contact Us Default Success Message
Magento Contact Us Default Error Message
Step 1. Navigate to the app/code/core/Mage/Contacts/controllers and open IndexController.php file in the editor of your choice.
Mage::getSingleton('customer/session')->addSuccess(Mage::helper('contacts')->__('Your inquiry was submitted and will be responded to as soon as possible. Thank you for contacting us.'));
In the above line the Success message is “Your inquiry was submitted and will be responded to as soon as possible. Thank you for contacting us.” You can replace this Success message with your new Success message.
Mage::getSingleton('customer/session')->addError(Mage::helper('contacts')->__('Unable to submit your request. Please, try again later'));
