This isn’t easy for me to explain, but I’ll do my best.
I was developing a new site on a sub domain using a new theme (couldn’t be certain I’d make it work or I’d like the finished product so it made sense). In the end I did like what I got and wanted to transfer the new product to my two existing domains. FTP is beyond my skills, so my host set up something they called a ‘mirror’ site (I suspect it could be their word for a clone). I was running contact 7 with few problems until about 3 weeks ago when I noticed that no one was contacting me
A cursory look suggests that for some reason the page id that appears in the URL is now one number higher than that which appears in the back end in the plug in manager on the WP control panel. The upshot is that the contact form isn’t working, and something appears to have altered the number (or is it called a permalink?). This alteration isn’t random though, on each form its been set one digit away from that which it should be
As you might imagine, this is pretty terminal to an online business. I’ve got to suspect it owes something to the duplicating of the site but either contact 7 doesn’t appear to be able to handle it. Is their a solution. Having coded Contact 7 in the first place, I’d prefer to continue using it, but my instinct at the moment is that I need a new contact form plug in that can cope with this
