I uploaded the Contact Form 7 Plug-in to my blog, and unzipped and activated it, then followed the instructions to generate the code for all of the form fields. I had used Contact Form 7 successfully on another blog. Once I got all of the form fields generated, I copied and pasted this code into a post on my Contact Form page. It said you could put it into a post, text widget, etc.
Here is the code with the generated numbers for each field:
<p>Your Name (required)
[text* text-815 50/ id:name] </p>
<p>Your Email (required)
[email* email-183] </p>
[text text-441] </p>
[captchac captcha-132 bg:#FFFFFF size:m]
I also uploaded and activated the Really Simply Captcha. Then I got a message that said it would not work unless I had GD and FreeType libraries installed on my server. I guess this is a question for my hosting company, but my most important question here is why the generated code when copied and pasted into a post, does not show up as a "form" on the page? It just shows up as the code. Did I miss something when I created the code? Should I put it someplace else?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Maybe I can't use the Contact 7 Form, if so, does anyone have a recommendation for another WP contact form?
thank you in advance!
