Me. Too. I use simple facebook connect on a site and the new contact form won’t work. Of course, I already have another solution for a contact form that came with the theme I’m using; but I hope future versions of Jetpack don’t conflict with simple facebook connect, or vice-versa.
Thanks for pointing this out, @shellnick2003. We’re looking into this to see if it is something we can fix from the Jetpack side or if SFC needs a patch. No ETA yet, but I’ll try to keep you updated here.
I also experienced the same problem where the form would not appear. I disabled the “Simple Facebook Connect” plugin and the form appeared. I was only using it to add the Facebook “Recommend” button, so I’ll probably manually add that.
This notably happens a lot to contact form plugins. I link to a thread from there where somebody found that using SFC with a different contact form caused emails from the form to be sent 3-5 times each. Same underlying problem.
FYI: I Just wasted nearly an hour troubleshooting because I updated Jetpack and inadvertently activated the new Contact Form portion. This caused the short codes to not expand on my home page (will not work in Widget Areas only on Pages/Posts) for my Contact Form 7 plugin, hence both my client home page contact forms were dead during this time, replaced by visible un-expanded short code from Jetpack Contact Form. Be fore Warned the Jetpack Contact Form will conflict with Contact Form 7 (my testing was with Contact Form 3.1.1 and 3.1.2, WordPress 3.1.3 and Jetpack Contact Form 1.3 released April 23 2012).
@cozbaldwin – I’m having the same problem as dgPehrson where I add the contact form onto a new page (Contact Us) and click on “Update” and it disappears. I do not have the SFC plugin and have changed themes and am now filtering through my limited plugins already installed and active. Can you help?
