Booya! The contact form is fixed!!!
Ahem. Don’t mind me. I’m just feeling way too smug about this right now. (The fix required a manual tweak of a php script in the plugin. Since I don’t know PHP and this is, as far as I can tell, a completely undocumented issue, I think I’ve earned some smug points.)
So, way too many hours fighting with this plus more hours getting through another chapter of the book means it’s time for ice cream!
Real post coming soon, I promise.
