  • Resolved jfrenaye


    I am trying to do a contact form and have looked through here and cannot seem to get it to work.

    What I want is to have a user enter their name, email, select an option from a radio button list as a subject, compose a message, do the CAPTCHA and hit send. I want to receive an email with that information.

    The two issues are the Radio Buttons and the Message. The subject comes through listing the entire tag, and the message also displays the tag and not the message.

    Here is my form set up:

    <p>Your Name (required)
    [text* your-name] </p>

    <p>Your Email (required)
    [email* your-email] </p>

    [radio radio-124 “Advertising Inquiry” “Tip or Idea Submission” “Correction” “Writing Inquiry” “Other”]</p>

    <p>Your Message
    [textarea textarea-430 .5×5] </p>

    [captchac captcha-866 size:l]

    [captchar captcha-866]

    <p>[submit “Send”]</p>

    And here is m y mail setup:

    From: [your-name] <[your-email]>
    Subject: [radio radio-124 “Advertising Inquiry” “Tip or Idea Submission” “Correction” “Writing Inquiry” “Other”]
    Message Body: [textarea textarea-430 .5×5]

    The other fields are blank.

    And if anyone can tell me how to narrow up the message box that would be a bonus. Right now it extends all the way across the page and I would like it more square-ish than rectangular.

    Thanks so much!

  • in mail setup instead of having

    [radio radio-124 “Advertising Inquiry” “Tip or Idea Submission” “Correction” “Writing Inquiry” “Other”]

    just have


    similarly just have [textarea-430] in mail setup.

    to reduce width, try lesser value instead of 5 in form setup for [textarea textarea-430 .5×5]

    Thanks Ravi. Solved the first problem but not the size of the box, but not too big of a deal.

    Much appreciated!

    My contact form 7 will not route emails to me from my website. What and where do I enter to have the emails sent to my email???


    I discovered that my contact form plug-in was not working when someone told me she emailed me, that she got a comment saying her message was sent successfully, and yet I never got her email.

    I then tried to email myself and it did not work. I then upgraded to the latest contact form. It still didn’t work. I then de-activated the plug-in and re-activated it. It still doesn’t work.

    The person who usually helps me with WordPress issues is quite ill and barely online. She had emailed me suggesting either upgrading my plug-in for the contact form or installing a new one.

    So, I don’t know what else to do. All I know is that my contact form is not working anymore and it is very difficult to reach the person who usually helps me with WordPress problems.

    If you could possibly suggest anything I can do to get my contact form working properly again, I would greatly appreciate it.

    I can see from my blog traffic that a couple of people have viewed my contact form today. I hate the idea that people are sending me emails that I’m never getting… I worry that they will think I am ignoring them because they get no error message or bounce-back.

    They do get a message telling them the message did go though… when it didn’t.

    Thank you in advance for your help!

    You may have a similar problem to me that I fixed by installing a plugin called Configure SMTP; it routes your wordpress mail through your SMTP mail function rather than a server side PHP script.
    Hope it helps
