Working around the Wordpress Go Daddy Inoperative Contact Form
Disclaimer: I am not an expert.
Here is how I worked around this issue.
I used my FREE WEEBLY ACCOUNT to create a Contact Us Page that is a reasonable facsimile of the Wordpress Contact us Page.
- Open Wordpress Editor in a window on the left of your screen and Weebly in a window on the right of your screen.
- Make a free Weebly account like yourdomain.weebly.com.
- Do your best to make a reasonable copy of your Wordpress Contact Us Page in Weebly. It does not have to be perfect, as long as the visitor thinks they are on the same website. Grab your logo and general format, use the Contact Form and Maps. Create something of a footer. Copy the top menu links from the Wordpress site and recreate them in a text line in Weebly, nicely spaced. For each menu item, link back to the corresponding Wordpress page, so when the user wants to return they are back on the Wordpress website.
- Test the Contact Form in Weebly that it sends email to your box. make sure you have the fields you need like Name, Company, etc.
- Once you know that the Weebly page will deliver the Form Mail (and it does so without the Go Daddy nonsense), go back to the Wordpress Contact Us Page editor. Go to the bottom and enter the redirection to your Weebly Contact page. Be sure yours has the correct name of the page you made in Weebly, don't just copy my example. Update your Wordpress page to go live. (see sample of redirection in image below)
- Now go to your Wordpress website and click on the Contact page link. It should send you to your Weebly page (the user will not know this unless they study the URL or have a really sharp eye). Test your links on Weebly back to the Wordpress site.
- Voila, you worked around Go Daddy Contact Forms, problem solved.
- I welcome your comments.
