SimpleModal Contact Form (SMCF)

SimpleModal Contact Form (SMCF) is an Ajax powered modal contact form. It utilizes the jQuery JavaScript library and the SimpleModal jQuery plugin.

How do I change the output of the smcf() function?

You can modify the link URL and link title on the SMCF WordPress options page.

How do I change the elements in the contact form?

  • Go to Plugins > Plugin Editor > SimpleModal Contact Form (SMCF).
  • Look for function footer()
  • Edit the HTML in the $form variable.
  • Note: Be careful not to enter anything that would cause PHP errors. =)

How do I change the styling of the contact form?

Open simplemodal-contact-form-smcf/css/smcf.css and modify the CSS to fit your needs.

Note: There are some browser specific CSS values that are set in the JavaScript (simplemodal-contact-form-smcf/js/smcf.js).

What does the "Unfortunately, your message could not be verified." message mean?

Starting in SMCF v1.1, there is a new "security" feature that attempts to ward off unwanted spam. A "token" is created and placed in the contact form. When the form is submitted, the token is verified and if the token does not exist or fails verification, the user will see the "Unfortunately, your message could not be verified." message. If this is happening for legitimate users, please let me know!

What does the "Unfortunately, a server issue prevented delivery of your message." message mean?

It means a server issue was encountered. See the last item in the next FAQ:

I've followed all of the instructions, but it doesn't work...what gives?

Here are some troubleshooting steps to follow:

  • Use Firefox and Firebug or if you must use IE, turn on JavaScript debugging and install the Developer Toolbar (search Google if you are unsure of how to do any of these)
  • Make sure the footer.php file in your theme, contains <?php wp_footer(); ?>
  • Make sure all of the JavaScript files are loaded (jquery, jquery.simplemodal and smcf)
  • Make sure no other plugins are loading an older version of jQuery (SMCF requires jQuery 1.2.4 or greater)
  • Make sure PHP's mail() is installed and working. (You can also open smcf_data.php and remove the @ from @mail. That will echo out any errors that it throws while trying to send mail.)
