So I've tried two different contact form plugins, both have not worked so far. At the moment I have Contact Form 7 activated, as that seems to be the people's choice.
On the admin plugin settings page, I can send a test email, and I receive it immediately. BUT if I fill out the form on the site I'm working on, when I click 'submit' all the text fields clear and nothing happens. It's as if I hit refresh and the form is empty again. I'm not familiar with using wpmail. I also installed the plugin for smtp mail without finding a solution.
I should mention that I coded all the php files in my theme myself, so maybe I'm missing something in my functions.php that is standard in wp themes and templates?
Thanks for your help.
