If you have any questions or recommendations regarding the functionality of our plugins (existing options, new options, current issues), please feel free to contact us. Please note that we accept requests in English only. All messages in other languages won’t be accepted. If you notice any bugs in the plugins, you can notify us about this and we’ll investigate and fix the issue then. Your request should contain URL of the website, issues description and WordPress admin panel credentials. Moreover we can customize the plugin according to your requirements. It’s a paid service (as a rule it costs $40, but the price can vary depending on the amount of the necessary changes and their complexity). Please note that we could also include this or that feature (developed for you) in the next release and share with the other users then. We can fix some things for free for the users who provide translation of our plugin into their native language (this should be a new translation of a certain plugin).

  1. 1. Upload the Contact Form or Contact Form Pro folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. 2. Activate the plugin using the ‘Plugins’ menu in your WordPress admin panel.
  3. 3. You can adjust the necessary settings using your WordPress admin panel in “BWS Panel” > “Contact Form”/”Contact Form Pro”.
  4. 4. Create a page or a post and insert the shortcode [bestwebsoft_contact_form] into the text.

Instruction on Installation

Where can I find the settings to adjust the plugin work after activation?

You can find the link to the Settings Page in the Plugin menu.

After the plugin installation I haven’t adjusted the settings. What is the default email address used for a contact via the form?

The address specified during WordPress installation will be used by the Contact Form plugin as the default one.

How can I add Contact Form to my website?

You should put the shortcode [bestwebsoft_contact_form] into your page or post.

I chose a user via the plugin settings and got this error: “Please enter a valid email address. Settings are not saved.”

This means that you made a syntax error.

How to add the contact form not in English?

  1. 1. Add a language in the block “Language settings for the field names in the form” on the plugin settings page.
  2. 2. Mark the check box (if it’s not marked yet) in the block “Change the names of the contact form fields and error messages”, choose the necessary tab, click the twistie to expand the list of the fields and fill in the fields. Choose the necessary tab in the block “Action after email is sent” as well and fill in the field. Save the changes.
  3. 3. You will see the shortcode under the tab with the necessary language. Please paste that shortcode to the page or post.

I’m not receiving messages from Contact Form OR The plugin does not send an email – “Sorry, email message could not be delivered.”

Please follow the instructions below:

  1. 1. Please check the plugin settings => ‘What to use?’ => change the lines from wp-mail to mail and vice versa.
  2. 2. Email messages can be marked as spam on the server. Please choose another email instead of the admin’s one (‘Use this email:’ block) – for example, gmail or similar. If the message is sent, it means that email filtering is set on your server. Please contact your hosting provider.
    3. Perhaps email sending is not set. You should install an extra plugin called SMTP by BestWebSoft and configure it. Afterwards you should open the “Send A Test Email” tab on the plugin settings page, check an option “Display log”, send a test email and you will see if the plugin logs have errors.
    Note: If the Contact Form sends letters, but you don’t receive them, you can install our plugin Contact Form to DB in order not to lose the sent letters for the time the problem is being solved.

Why the contact form is displayed in one column, if I’ve chosen two columns displaying on the plugin settings page?

This happens when there is not enough the minimum width of the parent block where the contact form is located.

I have some problems with the plugin’s work. What Information should I provide to receive proper support?

Please make sure that the problem hasn’t been discussed yet on our forum (http://support.bestwebsoft.com). If no, please provide the following data along with your problem’s description:

    1. The link to the page where the problem occurs.
    2. The name of the plugin and its version. If you are using a pro version – your order number.
    3. The version of your WordPress installation.
    4. Copy and paste into the message your system status report. Please read more here: Instruction on System Status

    Great plugin. Thank you.

  2. Leonid

    Really geat plugin, since it allows to send attachments from a widget area (functionality that other similar WP plugins seem to lack)!

  3. judy

    I am trying to add more space to the contact form. I have it set to center but it is far left. Can you help me determine what to do to correct this?

  4. bws_com

    Please add strings below to the’style.css’ file of your theme:

    #cntctfrm_contact_form {
    text-align: center;
    }
    #cntctfrm_contact_form div {
    margin: 0 auto;
    width: 320px;
    }

  5. Joshua Thompson

    I would like to have the contact us form serve two purposes. One is to allow users to submit requests for information or support…but the other purpose is to allow users to submit LOGOS they wish to use for their orders.

    If I adjust the settings I get the same behavior on both forms. Is there a way to make one contact form show the “attachments” field while the other one does not?

  6. zkizzik

    I need change this text: “Thank you for contacting us.” for “Gracias por contactarse con nosotros” but from admin panel. Thanks.

  7. bws_com

    Unfortunately we don’t have such kind of option in our plugin.

  8. bws_com

    Unfortunately we don’t have such kind of option in our plugin, but we are working on it.

  9. Geoff

    Is there a code to change the font color for the text entered into the boxes? My site theme uses a default font color of white… and the boxes are white. i need a fix ASAP! (i need black text.)
    thanks

  10. bws_com

    Please write the following line in your theme in the style.css file

    #cntctfrm_contact_form input.text,
    #cntctfrm_contact_form textarea {
    color:#000;

    }

  11. Ryan

    What is the CSS code to change the label colors (i.e. “Name”, “Email Address”, etc)?

  12. bws_com

    Please write the following line in the style.css file of your theme:
    #cntctfrm_contact_form label {
    color: white;
    }

    You should write a required color instead of the word “white” ( http://www.w3schools.com/cssref/css_colors.asp ).

    This is just GREAT……….Thanks for making it possible for use it….FREEEEE….

    Thank you

  15. Christos

    Hello,

    Is it possible to change the “Submit” text to anything else I want? If yes, how can I do it?

    Thank you

  16. Ben

    Hi I took a look inside contact_form.php and tried to change both instances of “Thank you for contacting us” to “I’d like to thank you for taking the time to contact me, should your message require a reply I’ll respond as soon as my busy schedule will allow.”

    I’ve then reuploaded the file to the server but it seems to have no affect at all. Could you help?

  17. alri

    I would like to change the “Submit” text on the submit button, how is it done? Thanks in advance =)

  18. bws_com

    Everything is depending on which plugin you are using for contact form.
    Please follow the instructions below:

    = I would like to add Captcha to custom form on my website. How can I do this? =

    1. Install Captcha plugin, activate it.
    2. Open file with the form (where it is necessary to implement captcha).
    3. Find the place where it is necessary to insert code to display captcha.
    4. Insert lines to display captcha

    `if( function_exists( 'cptch_display_captcha_custom' ) ) { echo ""; echo cptch_display_captcha_custom() } ;`

    If the form is html it will be necessary to insert the line with tags php

    `< ?php if( function_exists( 'cptch_display_captcha_custom' ) ) { echo ""; echo cptch_display_captcha_custom(); } ?>`

    5. It is necessary to add the lines in the function of check of the entered data (where it is checked what the user enters and if everything is correct the mail will be sent)

    `if( function_exists( 'cptch_check_custom_form' ) && cptch_check_custom_form() !== true ) echo "Please complete the CAPTCHA."`
    or
    `< ?php if( function_exists( 'cptch_check_custom_form' ) && cptch_check_custom_form() !== true ) echo "Please complete the CAPTCHA." ?>`

    It is possible to enter this line in variable and display this variable in required place instead of `echo “Please complete the CAPTCHA.”`. If there is a variable (which is answered for the displaying of the errors) in the function of check so this phrase can be added to this variable. If the function returned true then you have entered captcha properly. In other cases the function will return false.

  19. bws_com

    Please find the string below in the ‘contact-form.php’ file:

    <input type="submit" value="'. __( "Submit", 'contact_form' ). '" style="cursor: pointer; margin: 0pt; text-align: center;margin-bottom:10px;" />

    And change word “Submit” to the necessary one. Don’t forget to leave the quotes.

  20. bws_com

    You can find current option on the plugin settings page. Don’t need to edit it in the file.

  21. bws_com

    Please find string ‘submit’ in the ‘contact-form.php’ file and change text to the necessary one.

  22. Peter

    Does your plugin allow for CC’ed email addresses? I’ve tried comma separating addresses in the ‘Use this email:’ field to no avail.
    Great plugin, simple and robust.
    Regards, Pete

  23. Neon

    Please tell me how can I add more custom field?
    Thanks

  24. evelyn rennich

    HI,
    I’ve got the contact form installed but it runs too far off the screen to the right. Is there a way to move it a little to the left to make sure it doesn’t go off the screen?

  25. Holly Lesmeister

    Hi, is there a way to remove the Twitter, Facebook, Stumble Upon and Digg buttons at the bottom of your contact form?
    Thank you,

  26. rajan

    nice plugin, thanx for providing….,

  27. bws_com

    Please go to the WordPress admin panel and write necessary email addresses using comma.

  28. bws_com

    The only way is manually customize the plugin.

  29. bws_com

    You can reduce form width. Just change strings below in the plugin’s ‘ style.css’ file (the best way is replace current strings from style.css plugin’s file to the style.css folder with your theme).

    .widget-container #cntctfrm_contact_form input.text, .widget-container #cntctfrm_contact_form textarea, .widget-container #cntctfrm_contact_message, .widget-container #cntctfrm_contact_name, .widget-container #cntctfrm_contact_email, .widget-container #cntctfrm_contact_subject, .textwidget #cntctfrm_contact_form input.text, .textwidget #cntctfrm_contact_form textarea, .textwidget #cntctfrm_contact_message, .textwidgetr #cntctfrm_contact_name, .textwidget #cntctfrm_contact_email, .textwidget #cntctfrm_contact_subject {
    width: 200px !important;
    }

    Replace it with strings below:

    .widget-container #cntctfrm_contact_form input.text, .widget-container #cntctfrm_contact_form textarea, .widget-container #cntctfrm_contact_message, .widget-container #cntctfrm_contact_name, .widget-container #cntctfrm_contact_email, .widget-container #cntctfrm_contact_subject, .textwidget #cntctfrm_contact_form input.text, .textwidget #cntctfrm_contact_form textarea, .textwidget #cntctfrm_contact_message, .textwidgetr #cntctfrm_contact_name, .textwidget #cntctfrm_contact_email, .textwidget #cntctfrm_contact_subject {
    width: 180px !important;
    }

  30. bws_com

    Our Contact form doesn’t generate any Twitter, Facebook, Stumble Upon and Digg buttons. Perhaps you have another plugin which is implementing current buttons in the page (the same page where our form is located).

  31. bws_com

    Unfortunately, there is no multi language option in our plugin.

  32. Mark

    Love the simplicity of this plugin the only trouble is I can’t figure of how to alter it’s look. At the moment there no space between each section, they are all very close.
    I want to change the font colour and size and to increase the spacing between say Name and Email input fields.

    Thanks

  33. sman

    The plugin is great! Is it possible to make it more narrow?

  34. Savas

    I’m trying to send an email but nothing happens.
    No skills in development.

    Any suggestions?
    Thnx in advance

    Hi, it´s possible to change the FROM field to show the name of the person who sends the message to me?

    Currently if I leave this field empty it´s shows “”wordpress” as a name from the sender.

    Thank you.

  42. Alison McIrvin

    I have been going around in circles to get the captcha to show on my contact form. I have downkoaded the suggested contact form in hopes that I will have better success getting the captcha to activate, but am having the same problems as I did when I had a previous basic contact form installed: the captcha will not activate. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

  44. Teri Ross

    Can I get this to work with Contact Form 7, and if so, how? Thanks for your help.

  45. Anton

    1) In order to change space, please add strings below to the style.css file in your theme:

    #cntctfrm_contact_form input, #cntctfrm_contact_form textarea {
    margin: 5px 0 !important;
    }
    p.cptch_block {
    padding-bottom: 0;
    line-height: 15px;
    }

    2) In order to change font colour and size, please add strings below to the same file:

    #cntctfrm_contact_form label {
    font-family:Arial;
    color:red;
    }

    Instead of Arial and red write necessary values.

  46. Anton

    You can add changes to the form’s styles.
    Please add the strings below to the ‘style.css’ file of your theme:

    #cntctfrm_contact_form input.text, #cntctfrm_contact_form textarea, #cntctfrm_contact_message, #cntctfrm_contact_name, #cntctfrm_contact_email, #cntctfrm_contact_subject {
    width: 220px !important;
    }

  47. Anton

    It is not enough to add SMTP plugin. You need to set up it on the plugin settings page and send test email in the debug mode. If you will get errors then it is better to contact to the hoster provider.

  48. Anton

    We are using the WordPress functionality for the date displaying.
    The function date_i18n and date_format and time_format settings from your website. The page wp-admin/options-general.php , blocks Date Format and Time Format.

    It was an issue with WP SuperCache & the FireFox cache. A corrupt file had been cached by the browser & took some clearing.
