        <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary dropdown-toggle btn-circle btn-lg" data-toggle="dropdown" aria-haspopup="true" aria-expanded="false">
          <i class="fa fa-bug fa-2x" title="Report Bug"></i>
        <ul class="dropdown-menu dropdown-menu-right dropdown-menu-form" data-html2canvas-ignore="true">
            <div class="feedback-report">
              <h2 class="text-center">Report Bug</h2>
              <form class="doo" method="post" action="report.php">
                <div class="col-sm-12">
                  <textarea required name="comment" class="form-control feedback-textarea" placeholder="Please tell us what bug or issue you've found, provide as much detail as possible."></textarea>
                  <input name="screenshot" type="hidden" class="feedback-screen-uri">
                  <span class="feedback-cam feedback-screenshot pull-right"><i class="fa fa-camera" title="Take Screenshot"></i></span>
                 <div class="col-sm-12 clearfix">
                  <button class="btn btn-primary btn-block">Submit Report</button>
            <div class="feedback-loading text-center">
              <h2>Please wait...</h2>
              <h2><i class="fa fa-refresh fa-spin"></i></h2>
            <div class="feedback-reported text-center">
              <h2>Thank you!</h2>
              <p>Your submission has been received, we will review it shortly.</p>
               <div class="col-sm-12 clearfix">
                  <button class="btn btn-success btn-block feedback-close">Close</button>
            <div class="feedback-failed text-center">
              <h2>Oh no!</h2>
              <p>It looks like your submission was not sent.<br><br><a href="mailto:">Try contacting us by the old method.</a></p>
               <div class="col-sm-12 clearfix">
                  <button class="btn btn-danger btn-block feedback-close">Close</button>

3. Include the jQuery Bootstrap Feedback's JavaScript and CSS files on the page. Done.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="resources/css/site.css">
<script src="resources/js/site.js"></script>

4. The example PHP to accept the bug report.

$comment = isset($_REQUEST['comment']) ? $_REQUEST['comment'] : ''; 
$screenshot =  isset($_REQUEST['screenshot']) ? $_REQUEST['screenshot'] : false;
/* convert screen shot to tmp file in current folder */
if($screenshot) $screenshot = base64_to_jpg($screenshot, time().'_'.rand(0,30).'.jpg');
* Since you have a lot of options for mail, and you're better off not using mail() 
* it will be up to you on how you want to send this e-mail, I use laravel, if not I use phpmailer directly - so attaching files is easy.
* $comment = what was typed
* $screenshot = the tmp file created for the screen shot.
* Be sure to unlink the screenshot after you send it.
echo json_encode(array('result' => 'success'));
/* comment out if you want to see the file */
//if($screenshot) unlink($screenshot);
/* function to conver base64 to jpg image */
function base64_to_jpg($string, $file) {
  $fp = fopen($file, "wb"); 
  $data = explode(',', $string);
  fwrite($fp, base64_decode($data[1])); 
  return $file;
