[resolved] Cannot change form name? (3 posts)

    How do I change the form name to something friendly? Am I missing the option somewhere?

    Currently my form names look like this:

    Contact form 1
    Contact form 1_copy
    Contact form 1_copy_copy
    Contact form 1_copy

    When I click "Add New", the URL changes from:




    but nothing seems to happen. I have to click "Copy" to make a copy of the existing form, and then edit it to create a new form.

    Is there a way to change the names of the existing forms?

    I love this plugin, but this is the only non-intuitive feature. If you hover over the title "Contact form 1" (in grey above the code you need to copy), you should see a yellow block on hover - click, and you have an editable field.

    Thank you, I never would have guessed that! Hopefully the plugin author will update his docs with this information.
