Problem With Mobile Contact Form
Share on: 
fb share twitter share gplus share more share

Can anyone recommend a contact form (name, subject, email and message) that works well on mobiles sites built on wordpress.

I have tried contact 7, clean contact and the visual form builder but the problem i get on all is this. As soon as i start typing the page starts scrolling up and down wildly with each new letter entered. this is a nightmare as even though the characters are entered i cannot see what i am typing due to the page moving all over the place.

Anyone else had this problem or can name a form that works.

Cheers

Worked ok for me too on iphone but notice a bit buggy on android. I did also do it from my site on the android and worked fine

I do notice you have some extra stuff in the form so check it.

Works fine on BlackBerry.

You can get anything you want if you help enough other people get what they want.
Losers fail and quit. Winners fail until they succeed.
Indecision is worse than the wrong decision. You can fix a wrong decision, you can't fix indecision.

Also, the mobile validator sometimes offers good suggestions as well...

I like JotForm a lot. But, watch out for using their default URL, it is https:. If you do this you won't be able to do many active form submissions (can't recall the limit but it is small). If you use http: you'll have tons more.

By the URL I mean the URL generated for you once the form you create is saved. It is what you pasted into your site.

If I look on mine at mobile magazine it is clean however if you look at yours it has a square above Please enter any two digits with no spaces (Example: 12)

And also above submit

WC3 is old and pretty weird when it comes to verification. It is virtually impossible to get a good ranking if you use any interaction at all.
