For all of those waiting...
Here is the first public release of WP-ContactForm 1.0 for WP1.5
Bugs can be reported here:
You've trusted some user input, won't really harm the site using this, but could lead to some funky stuff sent via email.
The user might find him/herself quite uneasy as (s)he enters "dfgdfg" in the email field, and is then shown such a sentence: "Thank you for your comments. It's already sitting in my inbox waiting for me to read them".
I agree with Kitten: too much trust :-)
Maybe too much trust but he's gotta start somewhere - at least we have a plugin available.
I for one am really looking forward to using a plugin like this.
I'm sure over time, his plugin will only get better and more features will be added in (like an email address validator; return to the page that was being used prior to using contact form, etc) <--- hey sounds like a wish list LOL
Return to page was how I originally had it set up, I got voted away from that in the forums, I suppose I can change it. Whats the consensus?
Email validation was another issue, just not something I was about to deal with at 2am.
hey it would be useful if there was a way to submit a file as an attachemnt too.
any chance of modifying it to work w/ 1.2?
Personally, allowing attachments may pose a problem for some sites.
I travel a lot and many times I'm stuck using dial-up for my laptop. If someone wanted to screw around and send a me dozen emails all with large attachments through the contact form, it would tie up my internet dial-up connection for hours downloading all the bogus files, making it hard for me to check out my legitimate emails.
If this feature is added, there should be an option to turn it off.
yup of course it should be an added feature to the contact form. the items to be filled in, in the form iteself should be fully customizable.
and yes you're right about the possibilty of inbox flooding. but for those of use using web based email, especially gmail, this wouldn't be a problem at all.
but once again most importantly i meant it as an option for people who want, and are expecting, visitors to send photos for example along with their contact details.
Don't know if this has already been pointed out but this plugin does not play nicely with Markdown or Textile.
I'm having trouble getting this working. (WordPress 1.5)
I have installed it, activated it, and configured it in the options. It generates an error messages (ie haven't used a name, etc), and generates a confirmed sent message. However, I never receive an email message. I have changed the email address in the options to a different one with no luck.
Do i have to configure a mailserver or something somewhere?
Contact form can be found here
I like the plugin. It fulfills a feature that I had been searching for.
You have my vote for e-mail validation. And as for going back to the previous screen, I'd like it to be an option because I use the plugin only once to make a "Contact Me" page. When the user is done, then let them see the "Thank you" page.
Great plugin - been waiting for this one for a long while!
This plugin does not like WP Advanced Stats - and outputs a ton of errors...
The quicktag is in the Post section (next to all the html tag buttons).
edit: I fixed my problem. I use Everyone.net on my primary domain name and the emails were being stored on my server instead of being sent to my account with Everyone.net
Something I never knew I always wanted!
I'm playing around with it at the bottom of the page here:
I'm not getting emails from it, and instead of getting a success message after sending, I get a page with no content. Anyone have a quick hint of something I forgot to do?
Monkeynotes already said it, but its worth repeating if you're having the same problems that I'm seeing: WP-ContactForm does not work when Markdown is active.
I get a 404 error when attempting to view my "contact form" page. All looks well when viewing it on the "manage page" screen. I tested it out on existing pages and the form appears fine. But when creating a new page, I get a 404.
Does your newly-created page include The Loop? If not, then that is why you are getting the 404. I can attest to this myself, as I learned that the hard way recently. (Thanks, Ryan Duff, for all the help!)
The excluded Loop was the problem. Thanks!
Does anyone know what causes the form to jump way down to the bottom of the page? Does it look for a certain <div> id? Should it be in a certain div id?
I discovered I could change the inline styles and get rid of
clear: both; in ".contactleft", but when I do that, I also have to remove the <div style="clear: both"> at the bottom of the form...which I can do...but, that doesn't make it very plug-n-play...
Am I confusing anyone yet?
1.1 is out.
I am simply beside myself with glee. This is one great little plugin. Thanks, Ryan!
Now, can someone suggest a way for me to not be beside myself any more and re-integrate? < shudder >

I'm having the same problem. What is "The Loop" you are referring to?
Is it possible to include a visitor specified subject field to append the end of the admin's preferred subject line?
For example, if I have the plugin configured with a subject of "[philpeeps.com] - contact form" there could be a subject field that the visitor enters to make the subject line read "[philpeeps.com] - contact form: Cool Site!"
The reason this would be helpful is that gmail groups emails with common subject lines as threads, so emails with the same subject line generated by this plugin, get grouped with unrelated threads of emails from other visitors.
I second Philpeeps request. I prefer to view emails as threads, which of course is based on the subject of the email. Any chance of that?
You can look forward to user subject lines in a soon to come version
I think this plugin is awesome, but I'm having trouble getting it to work. Here's the scenario:
I have a site that has two domain names. the first name is the primary, the second name is a domain pointer I think. Anyway, I have my blog on the second name, but I'm supposed to use the mail server from the first domain to process mail. My question is: where does the contact form get the mail server info and would having a setup like mine conflict with the script?
any help would be greatly appreciated!
The mailserver comes from php. It just uses the built in php mail function. It might be a conflict with your server and you'd need to speak to your host about it.
