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.
Beta testers, please share your feedback on the plugin

Please post them in this support forum.
I really need users, who wanted the external CSS feature, to test it thoroughly before the Beta ends

Please put BETA with your subject line, give specific details about the issue, steps needed to duplicate, and include a URL to your form page.
Version 4.0 Beta 3 09/16/2013
Changes since 4.0 Beta 2:
added more ID tags to form HTML.
More work on the Styles tab:
added new setting to “Select the method of delivering the form style”:
“Internal Style Sheet CSS (default)”
“External Style Sheet CSS (requires editing theme style.css)”
By default, the FSCF form styles are editable below when using “Internal Style Sheet CSS”. The style is included inline in the form HTML.
CSS experts will like the flexibility of using their own custom style sheet by enabling “External Style Sheet CSS”, then the FSCF CSS will NOT be included inline in the form HTML, and the custom CSS below must be included in the style.css of the theme. Be sure to remember this if you switch your theme later on.
Premium themes can now add support for Fast Secure Contact Form style in the theme’s style.css. (probably should wait until beta ends though). Select “External Style Sheet CSS” when instructed by the theme’s installation instructions.
Note: if you use the setting “reset the alignment styles to labels on left(or top)”, or “Reset the styles of labels, field inputs, buttons, and text”, then the custom CSS below will reflect the changes. You would have to edit your custom CSS again to see the changes on the form.
“Required field” will also be set when double email is enabled in the Email Address field settings.
added Save Changes button to field details on the Fields tab
added (standard field) note next to standard field names on the Fields tab.
added note “Standard field names can be changed on the Labels tab.” to the field details on the Fields tab
added standard field note will indicate if a (standard field name was changed on the Labels tab).
added a couple more filters.
If you have changed a standard field label, it will display the changed label in bold on the Fields tab.
Optimized code for email from name when name field is disabled.
Fix bug: date validation failed if date field was emptied, even if date not required.
Added “After form message” setting to the “Advanced’ tab, you can use this to add any HTML after the form.
Adjusted CAPTCHA difficulty down slightly.
Fix bug: now uses correct Return-path address setting for the confirmation email
Fix bug: confirmation email might send to admin if email field is disabled
Editorial changes to field instructions.
