Technical support

Dear users, our plugins are available for free download. 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 Plugins” > “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

          Kind regards

  4. 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?

    • bws_com

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

  5. zkizzik

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

    • bws_com

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

  6. 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

    • 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;

      }

  7. Ryan

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

    • 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 ).

  8. corvusmile

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

  9. Zoran

    Hello,
    I want to customize your captcha plugin for your’s custom form. Please can you help?
    Thank you

    • 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.

  10. Christos

    Hello,

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

    Thank you

    • 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.

  11. 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?

    • bws_com

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

      • Rash

        is it possible to stylize the text “Thank you for contacting us” and how?

        • bws_lvp

          Hello,

          You should to make the plugin update to the last version, then write the following line in the style.css file of your theme:

          #cntctfrm_thanks {
          border: 2px solid white;
          color: white;
          padding: 10px;
          }

          You should write a required color instead of the word “white” ( http://www.w3schools.com/cssref/css_colors.asp ).
          Also change the values 2px -thickness of the frame, 10px – indent from the frame to the text.

          Kind regards

  12. alri

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

    • bws_com

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

  13. 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

    • bws_com

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

  14. Neon

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

    • bws_com

      The only way is manually customize the plugin.

  15. 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?

    • 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;
      }

  16. 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,

    • 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).

  17. rajan

    nice plugin, thanx for providing….,

    • bws_com

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

  18. 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

    • 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.

  19. sman

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

    • 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;
      }

  20. Savas

    I’m trying to send an email but nothing happens.
    No skills in development.
    Somewhere I read about adding WP to SMTP plugin. Nothing happened (don’t know if this have to be intalled).
    Any suggestions?
    Thnx in advance

    • 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.

  21. mindy

    I am buildign a site and using you contact form plugin. Can I change the date format from day/mth/yr TO month/day/year1

    • 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.

  22. John

    I have sucessfully installed Contact Form on my site. It works fine in IE9, Chrome & Safari but does not work in FireFox v15.0.1. Is this a known issue?

    • Anton

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

  23. Richard Jones III

    Really nice plugin.

  24. Kristel

    after uploading the form with the code the first fields you can not fill in…it highlights the field but you can not put your name etc.

    • Anton

      There are the following lines in the file style.css of your theme
      textarea, select, input[type="date"], input[type="datetime"], input[type="datetime-local"], input[type="email"], input[type="month"], input[type="number"], input[type="password"], input[type="search"], input[type="tel"], input[type="text"], input[type="time"], input[type="url"], input[type="week"] {
      -moz-box-sizing: border-box;
      ...
      }

      This line does not allow to display what is written in the inputs. You should remove this feature and everything will work correctly.

  25. warren

    captcha doesn’t display in contact-form.
    workaround?

    • Anton

      Please check that you selected the checkbox Contact form and that you saved the changes on the page of captcha settings in the admin panel. And also, please check that you are using our plugin of the contact form.

      • Arthur

        Captcha is not showing up next to your contact form. I did check “Contact Form” in captcha settings. Both are your plugins. Any ideas? Also when I try to change Thank you for contacting us message to anything else and then press on “Save Changes” button, it never updates. And when I deselect “Subject” in options, the checkbox stays deselected but it still shows up on the form.

          Hello Arthur,

          What the version of the plugins + the version of wordpress?

          Waiting for your reply.

          • Rich

            I’m not arthur, but I have the same issue in that I un-check “subject” and it still shows on the form. WP 3.5.1. 3.45 version of your plugin.

          • bws_lvp

            Hello Rich,

            The functionality to disable the subject field doesn’t exist. Perhaps, you just turned off the setting of compulsory fields filling.

            Kind regards

    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.

    • Anton

      Yes, you can change this on the page of the plugin settings in the block Additional options -> Change FROM
      fields of the contact form.

      • Jackie Gengler

        I see the place to set the “FROM” field, but I don’t see an option to use the name of the person filling out the form. Is there a particular coding I should use so that it takes the data from the “Name” field and uses it as the “FROM” when sending the e-mail.
        Thank you for any assistance.

        • bws_lvp

          Hello Jackie,

          In this case you don’t correctly understand the “FROM” field. When sending email, there is a header, where it is specified who is this email from – site or user. And there is a field “FROM” write in the email message. So the text “FROM” field is for the header – there is not be the user’s name, it is write in email message in the field From.

          Kind regards

          • Jamie

            When I attempt to change the FROM field, it reverts back to the original entry? We are finding that the emails are not being sent even when the form submits successfully. Any ideas?

          • bws_lvp

            Hello Jamie,

            Please follow instructions below:
            1) Please check plugin’s settings ‘/wp-admin/admin.php?page=contact_form.php’
            2) It is possible that email messages are detected like a spam on the
            server. Instead of administrator ’email’ choose another ’email'(‘Use
            this email:’ block) – for example, gmail account or similar. If the
            message will be approved (it will be sent), then you’ve an email
            filtering configured on your server.
            3)Have you get notifications about new users registration? If not,
            perhaps you didn’t configure email sending. Then You need to install
            an extra plugin called WP-mail-SMTP and configure it.

        • A Boy & His Dog

          Hi Jackie,

          Did this resolve things for you? We’re having the same problem. If we delete the text in the ‘FROM’ field it puts ”wordpress” as the name of the sender. Whereas we want the actual name of the sender.

          • bws_lvp

            Hello,

            Unfortunately, this opportunity doesn’t exist.

            Kind regards

  28. 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!

    • Anton

      If you downloaded BWS Contact Form plugin, then, it is necessary to go to setting page of captcha and set the check next to Contact Form.

  29. Buger Joe

    Hi!
    i use the following code to display you captcha at the bottom of the register form supply by “profile builder” plugin:
    if( function_exists( 'cptch_display_captcha' ) )
    echo ""; echo cptch_display_captcha();

    ‘got the captcha’form at the right place but i can submit the form without filling it!???? do i miss something or should i add some lines in the function of check???
    thks for your help,
    best regards,
    Joe ;o))

    • Anton

      Yes, it is necessary to call the function of captcha checking, except the call of the function of captcha displaying.
      The instruction can be found in readme file or on the plugin page on WordPress website.

  30. Teri Ross

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

    • Anton

      Captcha does not work with Contact Form 7 because this contact form has its own Captcha and it cannot be changed.

  31. Yard

    I was install this plugin on this site and working great, but translation into Slovak is problem.

    I was generate .mo file from Project-Id-Version: Contact Form Plugin v3.25 | File: languages/contact_form-sk_SK.po using Code Styling localization plugin, but in form haven´t still translated Labels, only button Submit was translated correctly…

    Where I am doing mistake ?

    • bws_lvp

      Hello,

      Please use the program “poedit” – it works with our files and files work (received in the result of the work) in WordPress correctly.

      • peter

        I tried use poedit on your contact form pomo files, save with poedit and getting both the .po and .mo saved, transfered the .mo to the languages folder… and the translations does not change…
        pressing F5 on the site, seeing no change…
        What is wrong ?

        • bws_lvp

          Hello Peter,

          You should place both files – po and mo in the plugin folder “languages”.

          Kind regards

  32. andrei

    Hi! Is it possible to make Content Form form function as a pop-up window?

    • bws_lvp

      Hello Andrei,

      Unfortunately this is not provided in the standard plugin Contact Form but we can adjust it according to your requirements – this service is paid.

  33. Christophe

    Hi,

    I would like to ask the feature to set default the “copy to me” to “yes”. So it is an action less to take for the viewers.

    Question: where do you get the translation from to be set in the email. I would like to use the phone field for an other perpos but dont find it.

    • bws_lvp

      Hello Christophe,

      it is difficult to say what will be easier for you: either set the checkmark if you want to get a copy or remove the check mark if you do not want to get a copy.

      You can set the check mark by default – please open the file contact-form.php of the plugin and find the following lines 511-514:

      $content .= '


      ';

      and change them as following:

      $content .= '


      ';

      As for your question – in the translation file in the folder language in the folder with the plugin or in the code of the plugin find the necessary line and change it but these changes will be lost when the plugin is updated.

  34. rooh

    i have installed this form plugin for my website but my hosting is from godaddy and this form is not working there, why is that ?

    • bws_lvp

      Hello,

      Please try to install the extra plugin called WP-mail-SMTP and configure it. If this does not help, then, it will be necessary to change the code of the email sending – write “from” on behalf of the administrator instead of “from” on behalf of the user.

      If you have any questions please let us know.

      • Jamie

        I’d like to know how to change the “from” as you suggest?

        • bws_lvp

          Hello Jamie,

          Please update the plugin to new version, then remove it and install again.
          It is necessary to remove all settings and reinstall them, because you have a conflict.

          Kind regards,

  35. Tony O

    I really like the plug-in, how do you remove the requirement for subject and message?

    • bws_lvp

      Hello Tony,

      It is possible to do with the help of the editing (changing) of the script of the plugin but this is not desirable because it will be necessary to make the same changes each time when the plugin is updated. Since, the goal of the writing of the email is that users want to say something – why do you want to make the fields “subject” and “message” as not mandatory? What is the sence to fill in the form if it is not necessary to write anything? There is no point to do this, sorry.

  36. Ankit Sharma

    HI, Your Plugin is good. Is there any way that I can restrict the upload filetype to doc and specify the size.

    Thanks

    • bws_lvp

      Hello Ankit,

      This can be done by changing the code of the plugin – there are no such settings in the admin panel.

  37. Chris

    My visitors cannot send any contacts to me. The red message “Sorry, your e-mail could not be delivered.” keep showing on the top of the form. How can I fix it?

    • bws_lvp

      Hello Chris,

      Please install the extra plugin called WP-mail-SMTP and configure it.

  38. Don

    Nice plugin. I really like this form. It seems to be more stable than another one I’ve tried.
    It works well for files under 8mb. I’m trying to sort that out with GoDaddy but in the meantime, when I do try to send file over 8mb (or the limit specified on my host), the process starts, I see the upload happening, but then I don’t get the “Thank You” response. The file is not received at the specified email address and nothing happens. I specify on the form page that if user doesn’t get a “Thank You” message, then the upload was likely unsuccessful but I think the experience would be better if an error message could be posted.

    Therefore, is there a setting that can tell the user about an error? Furthermore, can it specify what the error was? Any help would be great.

    • bws_lvp

      Hello Don,

      8Mb – this is the limitation of the server and this does not relate to the plugin; there is the limitation of the file upload, the limitation of size of transferring file etc. Please contact the hosting company.

  39. Ana

    hi,
    i need “phone ” as a required field, also with a *,
    how could I do it?
    Thanks, very nice plugin.

    • bws_lvp

      Hello Ana,

      here is the version of the plugin which includes the required field “phone”.

      • Jamie

        Hi, I would also like to be able to display a phone number field. I tried changing the ‘cntctfrm_display_phone_field’ => 0, in the php to 1 but it didn’t work. Can you please help?

        • bws_lvp

          Hello Jamie,

          The checkbox Display phone field’ exists for it on the plugin setting page ‘wp-admin/admin.php?page=contact_form.php’

          Kind regards

  40. Fame

    Hey, great plugin I really like that users can contact me through the website and all but I seem to have an issue with receiving any of the attachments, when users send pictures.
    When a user sends a picture, all I receive is a plain text message and code….
    Any suggestions as to what is going on?

  41. chrys

    How can you set which fields are required? I do not want them all required… thanks for your help!

    • bws_lvp

      Hello Chrys,

      You should manually remover * (star) in code and delete the check on the obligatoriness of the filling of each field.

  42. Francois du Preez

    Hi There. I would like to change the background color of the contact form fields to something other than white. How would I go about this?

    Thanks in Advance!

    • bws_lvp

      Hello Francois,

      please add the following lines to the styles file style.css that is in the folder with your theme or through the admin panel to the same file:

      #cntctfrm_contact_form input.text, #cntctfrm_contact_form textarea{
      background-color: #F9F9F9;
      }

      instead of #F9F9F9 you can write necessary color (here is the instruction http://www.w3schools.com/cssref/css_colornames.asp).

    Hello, great work!
    I have a small question: how can I change the color inside the fields from white to red for example?
    Thank you in advance for your time!

      Hello Polli,

      Please add the following lines to the files style.css that is in your theme

      #cntctfrm_contact_form input.text, #cntctfrm_contact_form textarea{

    when trying to access Settings from the Plugin menu in WP Admin I get “You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.” — this is a WP multisite network, and I have tried from the network admin and the subsite admin.

    any ideas how to correct permissions? thanks

    • bws_lvp

      Hello Todd,

      Please check that the plugin is activated on that website where you are trying to get (general admin panel or admin panel of sub-site). If everything is ok, please provide the admin panel access of the website in order to analyze the problem.

      You should go to the page wp-admin/admin.php?page=contact_form.php of your website, read the instruction and make necessary settings, and then everything will work correctly.

    Hi,
    I have used your plugin for a client and it works fantastically. I have been able to customise the Submit button to a new design, but I haven’t been able to do a hover state for it. I want to use CSS sprites for this as you can see below with the current code. Any help would be appreciated!
    Thanks 🙂
