Simple modal contact form not working on ie8 (4 posts)

    Hi my simplemodal contact form is not opening up on ie8

    Here is my website: http://tinyurl.com/yzz4zsd

    The simplemodal form is activated by clicking on the 'Newsletter' link in the footer.

    I would also like to know how to change the From field when sending an email. That is I would like the proper from to display the email of the sender but also I would like it to display a specific name in the From field when you receive an email, not the email address itself.

    Thanks for the help

    See my response to your sitepoint post regarding the IE issue.

    As for the other issue, you can edit smcf_data.php and change:

    $headers = "From: $email\n";

    $headers = "From: $name <$email>\n";

    Keep in mind that I've seen issues, mainly on Windows servers, with this type of format.
