There are a lot of bugs in WP with the templates messing around with CSS and the W3 Total Cache messing around with it. It's a mess and a war but Fast Secure Contact Form went in pretty easily and worked. And get this.... they actually have tutorial videos for free plugins. Most of the one line snippet code plug-ins barely have text and rely on FORUMS.
Thanks, Instead of my usual frustrated and pissed off mood I was happily surprised and still am.
