  • I receive emails sent by people using contact form 7 as having come from…this is not a proper address.

    It does not show the address of those who actually sent the e-mail

    It seems I must have wrong settings in Contact Form 7

    Can someone please give me a fix?

    Go to the settings pane in Contact Form 7, there, select your form.

    In the section “Form” you should see your settings for the form. For example, you could have:

    <p>Name:<br />
        [text* your-name] </p>
    <p>mail:<br />
        [email* your-email] </p>
    <p>Message<br />
        [textarea your-message] </p>

    The user fills these and sends you a message. Below that, you see the section mail. In the “From” field, change whatever you have in there for [your-name] <[your-email]>, then you should receive the message from: “The Name the User Gave <themailaddress@theuser.gave>.

    Hope that helps!

    please tell me how can i add this contact form in our site. coz i have add contact form 7 plugin now have no idea how can i add form in my page. please help me.

    To Nageen:

    From the directions…

    1. Upload the entire contact-form-7 folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
    2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.

    The control panel of Contact Form 7 is in ‘Manage > Contact Form 7’ (on WordPress 2.7 and greater, ‘Tools > Contact Form 7’). Please note that it has moved from the ‘Settings’ menu since Contact Form 7 1.8.

    For anyone that may know, I’m trying to use the CAPTCHA with this and they require that GD and FreeType library are installed on my server. I’ve also made sure the folder is writable. Still not working. I’ve written my server people to ask if these programs are installed.

    My question is are there any other options to help protect against spam using the contact form if I can’t use this CAPTCHA?


    To Nageen:

    Sorry, forgot to add that once you go into the Control Panel, you’ll see the code you have to post. Should be…

    [contact-form 1 "Contact form 1"]

    Make a new post, page, or whatever you’re wanting and post the code into that and then publish.

    Again, thanks to anyone who can help me with my question above.

    HI, Can someone please help me. I have the same problem as zedman. When someone fills in the contact form on my blog, I do not receive their email address, it just appears as a noreply email address. I have the same setting as julia.lasarte has quoted in her reply, but it still does not work. Can anyone help me, this is killing me as I am losing leads.
