    how do I change the email recipient for those messages sent using my site’s contact form? I would like a different person to receive the emails, and for the life of me I can’t figure out how to do this.

    The blog I need help with is coyotebackbonetrail.com.

    If you go to the “edit” view for your Contact page, you can see the code for the contact form. Change the address listed here:

    contact-form to='(email redacted)'

    Let me know if you have any trouble.

    Hi thanks for your help. I did edit the code for the contact form and replaced the former recipient with the new, intended recipient and the hit “update”. However, when I sent a test message, that test message came to ME, the site administrator, at the general notifications e-mail address that I established when I set up the site. Very strange, any thoughts?

    Am going to try deleting the entire form and creating a new one. Will let you know if that works.

    Think that did the trick. Don’t know why the changes didn’t “take” originally. Thanks again.
