The form should be here: http://newvantagephotography.com/blog/#/blog/contact/

I can see it on my computer, but everybody else seems to be getting a 404 error.


(username: ShanaIrwin; form name: New Vantage contact form)

Good Day,

Whatever software you are using to build your website is altering the myContactForm.com code to the point that it will not function. If you look at the actual code that is on your site you will see the following line:

Code:
<form onsubmit="bda.postForm(this); return false;" id="bda_908" name="contactForm" method="post" action="http://www.mycontactform.com/sendform/sendform.php">


This is significantly different than the similar portion of code we have provided:

Code:
<form method="post" action="http://www.mycontactform.com/sendform/sendform.php">


The 'onsubmit' portion is being added on your end and is basically hijacking the form so that it doesn't send the data to the actual script that processes the form.

I'm very confused!

I just went and looked at the code for that page, in my Wordpress dashboard, and it shows the code that it's supposed to have.

<form method="post" action="http://www.mycontactform.com/sendform/sendform.php">


Is there anything I can do about this??

The other bizarre part: on the computers that I CAN view it on, I'm able to submit the form, and she receives it, even though the website gives me an error after submitting.

I've used this form without issue on three other websites, but this is the first time I've tried it on a Wordpress blog.



sigh....

Well, that didn't take long!

Of course, I can't tell if it works or not, because it has always looked right on my computer, for whatever reason....

Off to FB to beg all of my friends to check it out for me!

Thanks for the help! Very Happy
