Contact Form 7 – “Failed to send your message”

If you have been using the Contact Form 7 plugin within your website for quite a while now, or even if you have recently adopted the nifty plugin, you may or may not be aware that your form has suddenly stopped functioning as it used to. This is due to your configuration of the plugin.

The simple fix:

  1. Inside the form you wish to fix (To get here: select ‘Contact’ link in dashboard sidebar nav > click ‘edit’ link below the form you wish to edit)
  2. Once inside the ‘edit’ section of the form you will see a bar across the top like so, select “Mail”
    mail-tab
  3. Inside “Mail” next to the From field.. add [your-email] (which will be the persons email who is filling in the form, or the domain email address its being sent from, your choice. You simply must have an email in the from field, rather than just the name.
    from-field
  4.  Save and test your form – your form should be up and running again!

WordPress Updates

wp19While it is important to keep your WordPress website up to date, it’s also very risky if you update without precautions.

The wordpress team incrementally fix and tweak the overall CMS functionality all the time. But the Major ones are when the Big(first) number Increments. (Eg: 3.4.1 -> 4.0.1) These can cause your site to stop working completely if you have fallen behind in keeping your site up to date in general(Your plugins and the WordPress version).

Plugins

These need to be updated whenever a new update is released to ensure they do not provide loopholes in your website security and to ensure they are functioning at their best.

Sometimes plugins can conflict either with each other, or with your WordPress version. When they conflict with your wordpress version your whole website can appear as a blank page and you might not even be able to access your wordpress website login page.

Alternatively they can conflict with another plugin which may cause either one or both to stop working. Sometimes the use of these two plugins is necessary as their services are needed but there may be other plugins out there that can provide those same services if not better!

Conclusion

If you’re unsure about your website’s version and its plugin updates, I’m offering a FREE inspection to see if your website is in need of maintenance.
