    Download it here:
    http://www.fastsecurecontactform.com/beta

    After one year of hard work, Mike Challis and Ken Carlson have redeveloped the whole WordPress plugin.

    We’re looking for volunteers that currently use our WordPress plugin to test the new 4.0 Beta version. This is a beta build and could potentially have bugs that we don’t know of. Please stress test and let us know of any issues.

    = 4.0 Beta 1 Change log =
    - (15 Aug 2013) – All new code base with better use of class structure.
    - New user interface with tabs.
    - New ‘Fields’ tab where you can re-order the display sequence of all the fields via a drag and drop interface.
    - The standard fields (name,email,subject,message) can now be manipulated and re-ordered along with the extra fields in the new ‘Fields’ tab.
    - Forms are easier to add, remove, label, and select for edit or preview.
    - Fields are easier to add, remove, and re-order.
    - Easier to use field labels, tags, and field options. You no longer have to escape comas in form labels and options.
    - A ‘Reset Form’ and ‘Delete Form’ button has been added to the new ‘Tools’ tab.
    - Automatic import of settings from older version 2.5.6 and newer.
    - You can restore your backed up forms from version 2.8 and newer with ‘Restore Settings’ on the new ‘Tools’ tab.
    - Updated Meeting Scheduler – by vCita is still being developed for the new ‘Meeting’ settings tab.
    - Updated ‘Constant Contact’ plugin integration for the new ‘Newsletter’ settings tab.
    - PHP Sessions are no longer enabled by default allowing for best compatibility with servers, caching, themes, and other plugins. This should resolve many sessions related issues some users had.
    – Added filter hooks for 3rd party plugins.
    - Removed HTML before/after field DIVs.
    - Relocated some email settings from ‘Basic Settings’ to ‘Advanced’ tab.
    - Editorial change: E-mail is now Email, e-mail is email
    - Includes all the recent improvements from the 3.xx versions.
    - Many bug fixes and code improvements.

    Version 4.0 beta FAQ

    How do I install it?

    If you DO have version 3.xx installed now:
    Go to the form edit page, scroll down the settings until you find the ‘Backup tool’, select ‘All forms’ and backup your form settings. The 4.0 version will import your settings automatically. If you backup your settings before upgrading, you can restore them any time using the ‘Restore tool’ on the ‘Tools’ tab.

    The 4.0 version stores the settings in a different WP options name so it will not overwrite the settings from prior versions. Before you upgrade, please use the ‘Backup tool’ to save your form settings in case anything goes wrong. Caution: if you deactivate the plugin and click to “delete all plugin related files”, then the settings from either version ARE PERMANENTLY DELETED from WP. This is why using the ‘Backup tool’ to save your form settings is all ways a good idea.

    Before continuing, please be sure you have used the ‘Backup tool’ to save your form settings, as explained above.
    Since it is a beta, it is not available for automatic install yet. You have to manually install it.
    Download the zip file of the most recent Beta version (button on this page)
    Unzip the file you downloaded.

    FTP upload the new ‘si-contact-form’ folder from your unzipped download folder to the
    ‘/wp-content/plugins’ directory.
    Activate plugin via the Installed Plugins menu in the WordPress Dashboard

    If you DO NOT have version 3.xx installed now:

    Download the zip file of the most recent Beta version. (button on this page)

    Uploaded it as a ZIP file (of the subfolder) and I tested it on the multi-site with domain mapping.

    It WORKS! Can't wait until I can do automatic install and do the rest of my sites.

    Hi Mike, this version is really better but I had a problem with styles. When I define a color for the label of the form, the color is auto set to #333333. Here is the code auto generated:

    div.fscf-container label {
    color: #333333;
    }

    I found the code in the fscf-styles.css archive and comment it, so solved the problem:

    .fscf-field-left {clear:left; float:left; margin-right:10px;}
    .fscf-field-follow {padding-left:10px;}
    .fscf-clear {clear:both;}
    /* div.fscf-container label {color:#333333;} */

    Mike, I can't disable the information about sender, even if the button " Enable sender information in email footer" isn't marked.

    Mike, another problem, the backup tool isn't working. When I click it go to a empty page and nothing happens. If you need to test in my site let me know, I'll create a password for you. Thanks!

    Mike, I found a new issue, see in my site: http://eventoscorporativos.com.br/fale-conosco

    In the field "Escolha a atração" (means "choose an attraction") is appearing a empty checkbox. The field is exactly like this:
    Estátua Viva
    Realejo
    Repentistas
    Futebol Free Style

    I've checked and don't have any space below "Futebol Free Style".
    In the previous beta version wasn't appearing this empty field.

    Mike, I didn't find the link to HostGator to ensure your sales charge. Please send it to me earliest possible, I'm needing to start an reseller account.

    Thanks.
