Common Problems Encountered by Users:
I submit the form and get a form location error.
This typically occurs when you are testing a form that has not yet been published to your live website. If you are still having this problem once you have uploaded the file to the live website, please read below.
If you are using myContactForm.com, you will need to login and make sure that you've set the Form Location setting to the proper URL for your form.
