    Hi,

    Your theme is really impressive, congrats! (I’ve done many themes in the past, yours is very powerful…)

    I only have problems with inserting a contact form and some questions, thanks a lot for your help!
    (the contact page with the 2 forms is there http://www.culturesenior.org/contactez-nous/)

    ​1/ ​I understand there are 2 sorts of contact forms, why is this ?
    [contact-form-7 id=”5548″ title=”Invent Theme Contact Form”]
    [contact_form mail_to=”receipient@mydomain.com” phone=true web_url=true subject=true button_color=”default”]

    I have tried both and I have difficulties with both :
    ​​contact-form-7​ (I do​ not​ receive messages using this form)​
    ​2​/ I can’t get the emails to be sent. I always get an error message​ (see http://i.imgur.com/EDo0ReY.png)​
    3​/ Why are there 2 emails ? ​(see http://i.imgur.com/lkXPARH.png)​
    ​4​/ How can I style the form ? (actually, I just need to center it without the left side stuck to the margin​) (see http://i.imgur.com/nNG8LM5.png)​
    5​/ Is the data I collect with this form saved somewhere ? Where can I see it ?

    contact_form​ (I do receive messages using this form)​

    ​6/ Where do I edit the wording of the red sentences that appear below fields (see http://i.imgur.com/FoR6xLc.png)
    7/ Where do I edit the number of required characters/digits ? (right now if my name is shorter than 5 characters, I get the message, se http://i.imgur.com/QSp2ZnS.png)
    8/ From the code “phone=true web_url=true subject=true”, I understand I can deactivate these 2 fields. But what about adding fields, and deactivating other fields ?
    9/ Where do I edit the wording of labels ?

    1,2. One is contact form 7 and the other is using the theme’s contact form shortcode.
    Have you set mail to address properly?
    Can you check if the following plugin is able to send you emails?

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/check-email/

    If that does not work, pls contact your hosting. If that does work and contact form is not able to send you emails, then it is more of a configuration issue and pls get back to us on the same with a temp login to your site.

    4.Pls include the form in a segment shortcode.Kindly go through the segment shortcode in theme documentation.

    3.5.No it is not saved.Actually we are setting the messages in contact>edit page (pls see the attached screenshot).If you visit contact > edit page as in screenshot everything will be self explanatory.And if you need to save the contactformdetails in db you can try this plugin –

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/contact-form-7-to-database-extension/

    6,7,9.You can modify it in framework/scripts/sendmail.php

    8. Pls go through the file framework/shortcodes/contact-shortcodes.php.
