Hi there –
I’ve been trying to use the Paradise Hotel theme but am having issues with the Reservation and Contact form – when the form is filled out it’s not sent out. I’ve installed an SMTP plugin to help with this (which I have had to do with other themes) but for some reason the forms here don’t work still.
I’d use Contact Forms 7 but I cannot figure out how to add an item in the Page Builder. I thought perhaps I should put the short code for the form in the content area and use “This page entry” for the item to be added to the builder but I am just getting the text from the Contact Forms 7 form I created and not seeing any text boxes or ways to input text. I’d manually edit the page layout with shortcodes if I knew how to so see if that would work.
So my questions are:
a) How can I use SMTP to send email from within the theme using the built in forms?
b) If I have to use a different plugin like Contact Forms 7, how do I use it within the Page Builder?
c) How can I see the shortcodes for all items within the Page Builder so I can layout everything within the page markup if need be.
Additional info: I am using BlueHost and it’s on a Linux server, WordPress 4.3.1. Email addresses that are being used are the same as the domain that the site is on.
