Heres a different response to an uncompleted form with required fields...
Thats it nothing more nothing less. Every user message that should appear doesn't only the "h"(in red) appears. I have updated the contact form 7 plugin and checked that the messages are not set to "h" in the tools.
The odd thing is, is that the other contact form (written in short code on a page) works fine. Could the fact that I used the "do shortcode" command in my page template be the reason the form breaks like this?
If it is the "do shortcode" command does any one have another way to include a contact form 7 form using php.
