  • You already have links on your header and you want to add one more?
    Go into the theme files and find those links and add a new one.

    Hello Carlos,

    You should be able to just add the Contact link to your theme. Just make sure to add the smcf_link class to the code:

    <a href="/contact" class="smcf_link">Contact</a>

    Also, it looks like you are using an older version of jQuery. You’ll probably need to include the version that comes with SMCF for the effects to work correctly.

    emartin24,

    I tried that, but it didn’t really work. When you say I have an older version of JQuery, does that mean I have to upgrade the WordPress template?

    I know I eventually have to do that but I’ve been avoiding it because it sounds like a real pain in the ass for someone who is not real good at these technical things.

    “I tried that, but it didn’t really work.”

    – What part of it didn’t work?

    “When you say I have an older version of JQuery, does that mean I have to upgrade the WordPress template?”

    – No, it just means that you need to make sure to include the version of jQuery that comes with SMCF, by selecting jQuery on the options page.

    emartin,

    I need to know what coding, if any, that I need to write in the actual contact page to make this work because that is where my issue lies.

    I think the intent is that the contact link itself would trigger the contact form and not go to a contact page.

    You might want to have a contact page for non-javascript users, but the contact link itself (in your menu) would open SMCF. To make that happen, you just need to add class=”smcf_link” to the contact link.

    If I delete the contact page and just try to go with the link itself, I get the following, extremely annoying page:

    Easy, tiger. This is a 404 page.

    You are totally in the wrong place. Do not pass GO; do not collect $200.

    Instead, try one of the following:

    * Hit the “back” button on your browser.
    * Head on over to the front page.
    * Try searching using the form in the sidebar.
    * Click on a link in the sidebar.
    * Use the navigation menu at the top of the page.
    * Punt.

    You don’t need to delete the contact page. You just need to make sure that the link to the contact page looks something like:

    <a href="/contact" class="smcf_link">Contact</a>

    If the plugin is activated, it should work.

    I’ve activated the plug in and put the code in and the contact form is not there. This is the code I used. I’m really new to this and still learning so bare with me. I put the code on the manage page, changed from visual to code and put the code in there, is that right?

    <?php if (function_exists(‘smcf’)) : ?>
    <?php smcf(); ?>
    <?php endif; ?>

    Thanks

    If you use that function, all you should see is a “Contact” link wherever you placed the code.

    Do you see that?

    Do you have a link I can view?
