If I add a new page I expect a blank new page form to open
If I edit an existing page I expect it to be retrieved from the database
What actually happens the same page is pulled up in both instances. Its a page with a Contact Form 7 form embedded into it.
I was wondering is my database corrupted? or is there a problem with contact form 7?
Everytime I add a new page it retrieves the same page that has the contact form on. I tried deactivating Contact Form 7 and it made no difference.
I tried deleting the page that is pulled back from the database but it simply retrieved the next page in the list that had another contact form on. (The 2nd contact form was just another contact form to a different department within the same company)
When adding a new page I cannot change its Title, Slug, Permalink, Turn off comments etc. However I can change these attributes from within quick edit.
If I save the new page its given a the name of the old page with _copy appended on the end.
here is the permalink of the offending page:
http:// website name goes here com/?post_type=wpcf7_contact_form&p=1862
Anyone got any experience of something similar?
I have had "unable to establish a database connection" about 5 times in the last 4 months and each time I ran repair.php. the last time it happened I opened a support ticket with my server provider who said they had also ran the repair tables option and that their recommendation was to create a new wordpress database and move everything over to it. I have no idea what to do next
