My forms won't work in Wordpress

My forms won't work in Wordpress

Hi,

I'm trying to set up a contact us page in my wordpress site: contact-us but it resolutely refuses to work. I've added the form in its entirety to the contact template that I've set up, but it just produces php errors every time. The first are just locational errors for the webassist/email folder, but when I sort that one out the errors just keep coming thick and fast.

Does anyone have experience of using Universal email on WordPress? I'm using version 3.1.1 of WP and 4.0.0 of UE. Help!

Cheers,

Dan

WodPress code doesn't take kindly to PHP input - although there are some plugins that can enable php compatibility (in certain areas). But the nature of Universal Email php code and directory structure would make it difficult and frustrating to try to implement successfully across the entire UE file stucture.

I'm not sure why you wouldn't want to build your custom form with a native WodPress plugin - Search (from the plugins page) for 'Fast Secure Contact Form' - you can configure multiple unique forms that include the standard contact fields, plus up to eight other custom fields - all options are highly configurable, and guaranteed to work with WordPress3.1.1

Hi neilo

I didn't want to bother with a plugin as I've paid good money for UE and don't want to have to just give up using it. Plus, I'm comfortable using it and the plug ins I've looked at so far are a bit (well, OK, a lot!) clunky to use in comparison.

But I'll try your search advice and see what I can dredge up. Thanks for the tip.
