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.
a. Login to myContactForm.com
b. Click the Edit Button
c. Click the Basic Form Information Button
d. Enter all variations of the URL where the form will appear. Typically this is the full URL of your web form with and without the www subdomain. You can also use wildcards (*) in this setting.
