Getting this form to work (5 posts)

    This form uses a script that calls upon a webformmailer.php

    The submit button functions when required fields are left empty and it provides a warning as to what ones need to be filled. However once everythiing is filled properly and you hit submit, nothing happens.

    The reset button also does not work.

    I'm moving a site over to wordpress and I was hoping to copy this form for the most part and restore it's functionality on the new site. I'm going wrong somewhere, anyone care to point it out?

    You can view the page the form is on here: http://www.caleblog.com/reserve/

    I would try the very popular Contact Form 7 plugin...'their' form mailer is poor at best...

    Can I rebuild virtually the same look of a form in Contact Form 7? I've actually already downloaded/installed it at the development location... and copied the code from this old form to the Contact Form 7 panel in WordPress. Right now the shortcode is working on http://www.caleblog.com/contact-test/

    While the form is displaying as it should, I can't seem to get it to work... do I have to rebuild the form from scratch within CF7? Is copying and pasting the code from the previous form not going to work even with some code doctoring?

    My guess is that I have to just start from scratch. Do you have any experience using it? I need to figure out how to get something similar, fortunately what I need to replicate in form and function is relatively simple.

    Review the accompanying documentation/links and yes, create a new form in CF7...
