    This plugin couldn't be any easier to use or work any better. Upload, activate, insert tag on page...and that's it. Thanks!

    Just downloaded and installed your si-contact-form on my WordPress site
    running the Thesis theme. Not only was it incredibly easy to use and
    make simple alterations, the help screens were so very practical and
    easy to understand. I wish all the plug-ins were so well designed!

    rich235,

    Did you look at the first entry of the FAQ?
    Did you try it?
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/si-contact-form/faq/

    I just installed this and do not get any email from it, what could be wrong?
    Make sure you have the correct "E-mail To:" set in options. If that is correct, then this setting in the contact form options might help you.... "E-mail From:" ... Normally you should leave this blank because the email will be from the sender. If your contact form does not send any email, then set "E-mail To:" and "E-mail From:" to an email address on the SAME domain as your web site. This fix works for web hosts that do not allow PHP to send email unless the email address is on the same web domain. They do this to help prevent spam.

    Tried this several times with different email addresses. With and without the two.
    could it be my theme? Lightword?

    It is probably not the theme.

    Do you get any email at all from your blog, like when comments are posted?
    It seems to me a server issue.
    Some web hosts disable the PHP mail function.
    You may have to make a trouble ticket with your web host.
    Let me know how it goes.

    Support at my Host (BlueHost) said the PHP mail is on and offered to try to duplicate the problem for me. I said I would try again myself. I went in to the WordPress Admin and noticed the update for the SI contact form and updated it. I then noticed the test mode which did send an email to me when I tested. The update apparently fixed it! thank you very much.

    Problems still?
    I visited my page to test the contact form outside the internal test and I do not get a reply, http://www.aerochamp.com
    Is there something I am doing improperly? is there still a problem?
    I thought it was fixed but not sure now?

    I got rich235 working. He had an incompatible plugin called "WPMU Super Captcha". Removed that and installed "SI CAPTCHA for WordPress", problem fixed and he still has spam protection.

    SI Contact Form
    SI Captcha
    Both clear and crisp.... In installation, in looks, and use for user.

    I,ve swapped from another contact-form plugin to use yours. much appreciated.

    I decided a while back that a captcha for the registration page would be fair/simple solution to help prevent auto spam... when I saw your captcha plugin (with options (including registration page)... I figured you were double neat! both great, thanks again

    Ive been trying to pop a 5 on each of your ratings... at the moment it just says try again... but will come back and keep tapping, untill it registers.

    cheers :o

    The form works wonderfully for sending the email.
    http://www.sansepolcrovilla.com/inquiry.html
    However, I am having difficulty with the path to captcha. In my installation for this site wordpress has its own directory (wordpress) above the root directory. When captcha is enabled, I do not see the captcha image; when I hover over the links for audio, I notice that the path is incorrect, and is missing the wordpress directory reference. I also have permalinks and html in pages plugin activated.

    Where is the best place to indicate the correct path so that the captcha folders are correctly referenced?

    It is a wonderful, straightforward and well documented plugin.
    With thanks ...

    Check the WP settings in Admin - Settings - General
    WordPress address (URL)
    Blog address (URL)

    This is how it knows the correct path.
    If that is not working for your unusual install you have to edit the plugin php code

    Great plug-in, thank you very much for your efforts!

    Since I try to use it for a membership form, I wish to make some changes to the default settings. Can the following be implemented without editing the plug-in code?:

    1) to replace the default "Name" by two fields "First Name" and "Last Name".

    2) to reorder fields so "E-mail" would be the last field before the "Submit" button.

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    1) well almost, all the text strings can be changed in advanced options. You can change Name to First Name, then add another field for Last Name. But the Last Name won't be next to it.

    2) no sorry.

    You are free to custom edit the PHP though.

    I installed the si contact form and I got it to work for the most part. The only problem I'm having is whenever I use a gmail.com, msn.com, hotmail.com or yahoo.com accounts I get this error: "The e-mail could not be sent. Possible reason: your host may have disabled the mail() function."

    If I put in a different email domain, like yahoo3.com or nebraskamed.com, the form works fine.

    Do you have any idea what I'm missing?

    The site is on IIS 7.0 hosted by godaddy. The URL is http://www.janitorialsolutionsinc.com. I unchecked all the DNS options.

    Maybe your web host has banned those addresses? Ask them.

    This is the wrong topic to post problems. This thread was started to by the OP to say thanks for the plugin.
