[resolved] WP Contact Form: Can't Get It To Work (2 posts)

    Good morning!
    I have two WP blogs. I use Mike Chernim's Secure Contact Form on one (www.nappilyevahaftah.net), and I'm trying to use Doug Karr's WP Contact Form w/Spam Protection, at my other blog (www.neasoapworks.com)

    Well, Doug's doesn't work — I don't get the emails. If you use the form, and have a copy sent to you, you'll get the copy, but I won't get the original email. My webmail works fine, so it's not that. I got a one sentence email from Doug, stating that some webhosts don't allow PhP mail posting. Isn't Mike Chernim's program PHP? I believe it is. His works, so what's up with that?

    So, the logical question would be: Why aren't you using Mike's form? Well, it's because Mike's form won't display properly in my template. The text area for the message box is too big (it distorts the page), and I've tried to make it smaller and it doesn't work. I'm tired, and I'm not about to pay $50 for help — I paid it the first time, to have the form installed/customized.

    Now, here's an issue that MAY be the problem: My soap domain runs on PhP 5.5 (It's 5. something). My nappily domain runs on PhP 4. something. Could that be it? Maybe Doug's form doesn't work with PhP 5.whatever?

    Sorry if this makes no sense. I tried to be coherent. I'm a tad sleepy.

    For some unknown reason, it's working now.
