cform hangs

Please replace the ??? with your data!

_ H, I'm using cform II ver. 6.1. Have to say this is the best contact form plugin i've ever seen for wp. however, there's a problem. my form still hangs after clicking submit. i've changed uri in the cform.js to point to the page where the form is inserted…downloaded phpmailer v2.0 and uploaded class.phpmailer.php and class.smpt.php to my wp includes. changed smtp server setting in the cformII 's global setting but still no luck. did I missed out something? thanks in advance!

I can't see the form at the given URL.

Re: SMTP settings, do you really have to use those, doesn't the default mail() work? Just asking because it's usually better to use the standard mailer.  The SMTP option generally bears some limitations.

Glad it works again.

The issue with the SMTP support is that it builds on the default WP phpmailer feature – which lacks a lot of functionality. Encryption and proper user/pw authentication for one.

If you can live without the latter, then the cforms SMTP feature should do just fine of course.


PS: Just noticed two CSS issues with your form that stem from your WP theme, this will fix it (add/modify):

.cforms { display: block; } li { background-image:none; }
