    How can we get forms from the MailPress Forms Add-On to work?

    I'm running 5.3 and I see that all the options exist in the MailPress Forms Add-On to create a form that adds users to a particular mailing list, complete with opt-in notification.

    The form I created works great in MailPress "Preview" but when placed on a page (by shortcut or PHP code) it doesn't work -- pressing Submit just results in an eventual redraw of the screen and form, with no effect on the mailing list.

    Meanwhile, the [mailpress] widget shortcode DOES work, always, even on the same page with the malfunctioning custom form.

    It seems pretty clear that the MailPress widget shortcode uses Javascript/AJAX but the custom forms just won't, no matter how I set them. (I even tried the css, js, and jq shortcode options.)

    I've already tried switching to the default theme and disabling other plugins.

    Is the Forms Add-On feature for mailing lists supposed to be working? Or is it still in development?

    Please let me know; thanks.

    (P.S. Meanwhile, after many hours I finally found out that you can use the standard widget with [mailpress mailinglist='##'] when you know the number of the mailing list, but we still want to acquire more data, at least a comment field.)

    (Another person wrote http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-mailpress-custom-field-for-subscription-form . Do you approve of that add-on?)

    1. So what is the purpose of the Visitor tab?

    (Mails, Forms, Add Form, Visitor, with "Subscription option" and "mail option")

    Again, it works fine in Preview.

    2. If that is a broken MailPress feature, are there any ways to integrate with other Form software? (We currently use "Fast Secure Contact Form".)

    3. Do you approve of the 3rd party add-on I mentioned above?

    Thanks in advance...
