"website" module default contactus template  createde and "website_crm" module contactus inherited.

In Odoo try to update the website and  website_crm module (using setting --> Modules search website module and upgrate) after that you get default website.contactus page.  If you have contactus page edited using odoo interface i think after updating the website and website_crm module issue will fix.

This method worked for me.

I'd recommend going to the runbots:


and logging into an 8.0 instance. Just go back to the contact us page once you've logged in (login: admin passwd: admin). You should just be able to go where you where before and copy paste the original back in place.

For editing using the HTML editor, please note you are using a mixture of XHTML, and QWeb markup.

For any customisations if you are on a localling installed instance rather than an Odoo.com hosted instance i'd recommend building a simple module that inherits the view and changes the parts you would like to change. Using this method it is much easier to roll-back changes, you simply uninstall your simple custom module that has applied the changes to that view.
