How can we get forms from the MailPress Forms Add-On to work?
I'm running 5.3 and I see that all the options exist in the MailPress Forms Add-On to create a form that adds users to a particular mailing list, complete with opt-in notification.
The form I created works great in MailPress "Preview" but when placed on a page (by shortcut or PHP code) it doesn't work -- pressing Submit just results in an eventual redraw of the screen and form, with no effect on the mailing list.
Meanwhile, the [mailpress] widget shortcode DOES work, always, even on the same page with the malfunctioning custom form.
I've already tried switching to the default theme and disabling other plugins.
Is the Forms Add-On feature for mailing lists supposed to be working? Or is it still in development?
Please let me know; thanks.
(P.S. Meanwhile, after many hours I finally found out that you can use the standard widget with [mailpress mailinglist='##'] when you know the number of the mailing list, but we still want to acquire more data, at least a comment field.)
