    Hi Eric!

    Thanks to anwer!

    I did the following things:

    1. Open smcf.php in my the simplemodal folder in my computer.

    2. I added at the end of the file:

    add_filter('wp_list_pages', array($smcf, "page_menu_list"));

    Add:
    add_filter('wp_nav_menu_items', array($smcf, "page_menu_list"));

    4. I saved it in my hosting > plugins > simplemodal

    3. on my Appearance > Menus page, but something rare appear, please look at the link:

    Right below:
    add_filter('wp_list_pages', array($smcf, "page_menu_list"));

    You should be adding:
    add_filter('wp_nav_menu_items', array($smcf, "page_menu_list"));

    So that section of code would end up looking like:

    // Look for a contact link in the page menus/list
    add_filter('wp_page_menu', array($smcf, "page_menu_list"));
    add_filter('wp_list_pages', array($smcf, "page_menu_list"));
    add_filter('wp_nav_menu_items', array($smcf, "page_menu_list"));

    It appears that you put that code at the end of the file, which would explain the issue you are seeing.

    In looking at your screenshot, the fix I mentioned may not even resolve your issue.

    If it doesn't, try this:

    On the Menus page, click the 'Screen Options' link on the top right. In the "drop down", select 'CSS Classes' under 'Show advanced menu properties'.

    Now, for the link you want to use to trigger SimpleModal Contact Form, enter smcf-link under 'CSS Classes (optional)'.

    Now the menu should trigger SimpleModal Contact Form when clicked!

    Hi Eric!

    Thanks to answer me!

    I really want to have your plugin in my website but I'm really confused, the reality I'm not an expert. so, please explain to me step by step.

    Thanks so much in advantage to understand me.

    so, I'm going to start again.

    - My wordpress version is 3.0.4

    - My theme is widescreen of graphpaper

    - My simplemodal contactform version is 1.2.5

    - My website is: http://www.martagaviria.com

    so, for the error that I showed you before: http://s675.photobucket.com/albums/vv112/MONVELARDE/?action=view&current=provi.jpg
    I deleted the smcf.php and put the origina file which came with the plugin without change anything

    so, I've done the following:

    1. I "Activate" the "SimpleModal Contact Form (SMCF)" (worpress - plugins - add new - SimpleModal Contact Form - active)

    1. I set the desired options (Admin Dashboard > Settings > SimpleModal Contact Form)

    2. I created a new page called: Contact and paste this code inside:
    contact

    But it does not work! :S

    3. I DON'T KNOW HOW CAN ENABLE ON MY WEBSITE SMCF.

    Please Eric Help me!!!!

    Thanks!

    You don't need the contact page. The following should get it working:

    1. On the Menus screen, click the 'Screen Options' link on the top right. In the "drop down", select 'CSS Classes' under 'Show advanced menu properties'.
    2. Now, for the link you want to use to trigger SimpleModal Contact Form, (Contacto) enter smcf-link under 'CSS Classes (optional)'.
    3. That Menu item should trigger SimpleModal Contact Form when clicked!

    Hi Eric!

    I know it's easy for you, but for me it's difficult.

    1. If I don't need the contact page... I decided to delete it.

    2. I already found the 'CSS Classes' under 'Show advanced menu properties'

    3. I saw in the menu of the simple modal contactform a link: Contact Link URL: http://martagaviria.com/index.php/contact/

    Eric! please I seem like it's easy but I think I'm lost. I don't undertand your points # 2

    Please help me!

    On the screen shot you are showing, "open" the Contacto section (click the down arrow) and enter smcf-link under 'CSS Classes (optional)'.

    I only need my simplemodal contactform working well. Because when I fill the form I don't get any email from my website.

    Like I told you above, I'm showing you my screem:

    On my menu:
    http://i675.photobucket.com/albums/vv112/MONVELARDE/Untitled-1.jpg

    On my symplemodal contactform:
    http://i675.photobucket.com/albums/vv112/MONVELARDE/Untitled-2.jpg

    What is the thing i'm missing?

    From the FAQ:

    Make sure PHP's mail() is installed and working. (You can also open smcf_data.php and remove the @ from @mail. That will echo out any errors that it throws while trying to send mail.)

    If that does not expose any issues, check your spam folder. If you still can't find the email, check with your server host.

    Hi Eric,

    I installed your pluging in my freind's website:

    http://www.nicolasbetancourt.com/

    This one is working well, but i'd like to change the colours and typography.

    I added to "style.css" the following code but it didn't change:

    #smcf-container h1 {color: #000; font-size: 1.2em; margin: 0; padding: 0 0 6px 12px; text-align: left; }

    in this website, where can i change the colours and typography of the SimpleModal Contact Form?

    Thank you!

    Hello Eric

    I just used your plugin I found impeccable. I would like to know if There's possibility to assign a link directly to a category page or a menu without using custom menu
