Support » Fixing WordPress » Contact Form 7 – After “Submit” get “Not Found”

  • I have CF7 on 2 sites, both set up the same. However, on my 2nd installation, when I hit Submit on a test form, I get “Not Found
    Sorry, but you are looking for something that isn’t here”. The form is processed properly except this error. This is not one of the listed errors for CF7.

    How do I get around this?

  • Can I see the pages?

    I am also having the same problem. One one site, I’ve got the CF7 form on a page and it works correctly with AJAX submission and feedback.

    On the other site, I’m using the exact same template for the page with CF7, but the form does not even attempt to process with AJAX and goes redirects to the action address of the form, which is “/contact/#wpcf7-f1-p8-o1”.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    same here. i have it on a page, form gets processed properly and email is sent, then #wpcf7-f1-p137-o1 gets attached to url and “Page not found” error comes up.

    i’m also having this problem. it is fine on other wordpress sites. is this a wordpress 2.8 bug?

    I have found this issue is related to the javascript. Apparently contact form 7 doesn’t work without javascript so i will no longer be using it.

    The fix is to manually paste in the javascript files it fails to place in wp_head.


    Having the same issue here. And it doesn’t matter if the plugin JavaScript is included or not. Also it’s not any URL rewrite problem, tried it without rewriting. The funny thing is that if I copy the resulting URL from the address bar and paste it into another tab/window it works.

    The URL I’m testing this is

    @mawe it seems that you are using a broken theme. Look into your footer.php. I guess you can not find <?php wp_footer(); ?> in it.

    Hello I had “page not found”(Error 404) error on form submission.

    I rectified it by adding


    line in footer.php of my theme.

    Now it is working fine.

    I’m having the same problem as a few other members in this thread:

    got an URL that ends with #wpcf7-f2-p2-o1
    and a page the says:

    “Sorry, no posts matched your criteria”

    after trying to send an email using the contact form.

    I tried adding the javascript in the header template, but it doesn’t seem to help.



    @mindfuckx: you need to add wp_footer(); at the bottom of footer.php inside your theme folder. it should work then (it did for me) 😉

    I was having a similar problem with my own custom form & theme:

    • Ruled out javascript involvement
    • Ruled out <?php wp_footer(); ?>

    The solution ended up being the form field names:
