I really want to use these two plugins together to make an awesome pop-up contact form, but I am having some issues. I followed this tutorial. Everything works fine until the last few steps. The author uses the term “new page” several times and I am having difficulty figuring out if he/she means an actual new page or the page I just created. So, after looking at the images along with the tutorial, I decided that you make one page with the Contact Form 7 shortcode and then you place the rest of the HTML given in the tutorial on the page that you want the pop-up to appear on. Do I have that right? If so, then I am still getting an error:
[contact-form-7 404 "Not Found"]. So, I then brought the Contact Form 7 code onto my contact page and now the form is appearing directly on the page without the pop-up. Not what I wanted. I hope this all makes sense. I would appreciate anyone who could help me out with this. Thank you!
Edit: Also, here is my website, so you can see what is happening. Thanks again!February 2, 2013 at 9:05 pm #123116mlangleyMember
>Could there be something wrong with my jQuery?
Yes, it’s an old version of jQuery – 1.4.4, in the example JoshWhite gave he’s running 1.8.3. That is most likely the issue.February 3, 2013 at 3:33 pm #123236SenffParticipant
Maybe the name of the form was changed from “Contact form 1” to something else? The message you’re getting is a standard Contact Form 7 error that appears when the “name” value is incorrect.
What do you see when you put that particular shortcode in the contents of a (test) post (and not in a popup)? Same error?February 3, 2013 at 3:59 pm #123238SenffParticipant
Right — the tutorial might have been old enough to use an older version of CF-7, which would explain the differences.
However, in one of your posts above you pasted the shortcode you said you used on the Contact page (that doesnt open in a popup), so it was easy for us to assume you used the same (correct) code for the popup.
Anyway, glad it’s solved.June 14, 2013 at 3:40 pm #138740Jason73Member
Thank you for this information! I was having the same problem and following the same tutorial.September 24, 2015 at 12:35 pm #208651
