Hi. Thanks in advance for your help!

You have a great plugin here but for some reason I'm having difficulties with redirects, admin email and confirmation emails – meanwhile tracking works great!

I was having issues with the form hanging. After much troubleshooting I found that once I disabled (and then re-enabled) ajax the hanging issue stopped. 

I am currently having no success with redirect and have not had one successful admin or confirmation email sent. 

Site has not been promoted/published so I would prefer to send you and email separately if you need that information. 

Here's what I have tried:

  • Default theme
  • Isolating cforms plugin (deactivating others)
  • Re-installing cforms
  • Clear browser cache, restarting browser/compter
  • Toggle various options (show entries on dashboard, Ajax enabled, Hide form on successful submission, etc)
  • WP SMTP test (worked)
  • Checked SPAM/Trash folders in email client and webmail
  •  Set redirect to popular site (
  • Change admin and from addresses
  • Toggle enable/disable: tracking, admin email, redirect, etc..)

What I have not tried (successfully)

  • No success setting up external smtp
  • Have not checked whether provider (zippy kid) mail() function has any limitations

I'm using cForms ii 14.5+
and Wordpress 3.6.1
Wordpress is installed in the root directory. 

any help is much appreciated!!

Issue has been fixed!

I contacted the host provider outlining the same problem and steps I have taken. They wrote back saying the mail() function was disabled. After enabling mail the forms work perfectly.
