I very much resent the fact that the latest update has wasted so much of my time. The developer of this plugin must be planning to abandon it in the near future. I am certainly abandoning it NOW.
Terrible upgrade with unneccesary configuration errors and terrible feedback and documentation so solving is a hassle. Used to be the best contact form.
I always prefer this plugin. I love it.
This last update was awful, it has rendered all my forms unless. I do not have the time to read pages of posts on how to fix this issue, when it should not be here in the first place. The plugin was fine before this update, why even bother?
I shall be uninstalling this, and finding something else - way to ruin one of the best form plugins going.
With the recent update, I'm hounded by an error message on my dashboard claiming that my contact forms all have errors now. Nothing is wrong, however, as the emails still send (and I set my fields up as described by the documentation anyway).
I do love this plugin, but this annoying bug needs to be fixed before I'll change my rating back to where it belongs.
You want users to contact you from your website right?
This is a must have.
Absolutely dead simple to setup and configure and powerful enough to use for nearly every use case.
This is one of the few plugins that I use on virtually every site.
There is no need to try any other form than this one. It's so easy to use.
Slowed down my website to a crawl. I finally deleted it so I could speed up my website and now my websites loads within 2 seconds.
To solve the syntax problems you have to:
1- Go to your form or create a new one and add the tags that you have there (text, email, text area, etc). It should be something like this:
[text* Name placeholder "Your name"]
[email* Youremail placeholder "Your Email"]
[text* Subject placeholder "Subject"]
[textarea* Your-message placeholder "Your message"]
2- Go to the tab "Mail" and fill the input fields as follow:
- To: the email where you want to received the messages.
- From: the email of your website, be sure it has the same domain, like: firstname.lastname@example.org. Don't worry about this, you will received the emails of the people who write you, this is just to avoid messages going to the spam folder.
- Subject: Your subject tag, if you take a look to the point 1, in this case will be [Subject]
- Message body: this is a matter of using the same tags you created in the point 1. So what you should have here is something like:
From: [Name] <[Youremail]>
I hope you find this helpful. It took me around 20 min to figure out how is working now, and so far after making these changes it works perfect for me.
