Home Forums Back End WordPress self referencing form Re: WordPress self referencing form


In case anyone finds this via search…

I encountered the same issue, and it has to do with the form field names. I believe WordPress is interpereting either a POST or GET key value of ‘name’ as a post name to determine what wordpress page to show (resulting in a 404 error in most cases).

To verify if this is the issue, put in the slug of a post (like ‘contact-php’) in the name field, submit the form and see what happens (If it is a valid page/post slug, it should take you to that page).
