Contact form in Pages (5 posts)

    I was trying to create a contact form in Pages (http://codex.wordpress.org/Pages)with the dagon form mailer plugin (http://www.dagondesign.com/articles/secure-form-mailer-plugin-for-wordpress/).
    I installed the plugin just like they said and configured the form instance.

    Usage

    To show the form on your page, simply add the trigger text (followed by the instance number) to your page, just like you would any text:

    <!-- ddfm1 -->

    (http://www.dagondesign.com/articles/secure-form-mailer-plugin-for-wordpress/#usage)

    But the problem is when i create the page, anything I typed in there is enclosed in the pre-tag. So instead of the form, I see <!-- ddfm1 -->.

    check it out at http://clickafricana.com/contact/

    What am I doing wrong, guys? Please help me out.

    Are you using the wysiwyg? If so you'd be better disabling it and trying again.

    Sorry, I'm already taken, but I appreciate the thought.

    Hey! I see you have a captcha image with your form. I think that's new, so I'll have to check and see if there's a new version.

    On a personal note, my daughter's from Ethiopia, so I wish you luck with the site.

    Oh, and keeping the wysiwyg switched off will save a lot of problems.
