    Hi Mike

    Just wondering what's the current status with compatibility with SFC plugin?

    I can see your message in the plugin options saying that I should disable the SFC - but then I saw your post here:
    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-fast-and-secure-contact-form-simple-facebook-connect-causes-captcha-to-error?replies=1

    I've tested it and it all seems fine, however, the only issue I can see now is that when submitting a comment via contact us page, I don't see the message "Your message has been sent, thank you" and I don't get redirected...

    Appreciate your response.

    The link you referred to is a year old, much has changed since then.

    See this help page:
    http://www.fastsecurecontactform.com/error-message-sfc-like

    Is there an alternative plugin suitable for Facebook Like features?
    Yes, I found a plugin that works, Share and Follow. I use it on my site.

    Hi Mike

    Appreciate your time and reply.

    The only issue I have is the page redirect not working. I understand this is a JS conflict with SFC. Is there no way around this?

    The problem is, no other plugin offers the FB activity feed widgets that I need - except SFC.

    Thanks

    PS the captcha and everything works fine - it's just the redirect that's not working (and no thank you message)

    Iamhere,

    SFC plugins try to scan the page content prior to WordPress showing it (looking for the pictures to include with "Like"). This interferes with proper posting of the form.

    It would be nice if Otto, the author of SFC, would make a page exception feature so pages can be excluded from the SFC Like and SFC Share features. You might want to ask him to do that. There is no reason to "Like" a contact form page anyway. It would be simple for him to make a feature to exclude like and share buttons on specific pages or posts.

    Hi Mike

    OK Agreed there should be a way to exclude the like from a page.

    I have used the following code that was posted on the SFC forum, to exclude the like functionality from the contact us page (I put it in a template and assigned the contact page to that template)

    So - according to your theory, this should remove the issue? Or is there something else interfering?

    <?php 
    
    // prevent facebook like buttons on this page
    remove_filter('the_content', 'sfc_like_button_automatic', 30);
    
    get_header(); 
    
    /*
    Template Name: Contact Us
    */
    
    ?>

    Thanks

    Hi Mike

    Yes I've tried it and it does remove the SFC functionality from the page, but it si-CF still not redirecting correctly

    It is fairly straightforward assuming you know how to make a page template and assign it to that page in your WP admin?

    You simply create a page template for the contact us page in your theme directory, then add the code above at the top of the page, and in admin, select this template for the contact us page.

    If you don't know how to make a page template - you could learn here;

    Best of luck

    Fast Secure Contact Form version 3.1.7 will have the proper fix, it is not available yet.
