    The bloh linked to your username has bo blogger created content. Please post an active link starting with http:// to the blog in question. What do you mean by a custom form? Are you referring to a contact form?

    many thanks

    My hunch is that can place text above the [contact-form] shortcode but you cannot place text after it. Please try placing the shortcode below your text and see it that works.

    Also note the reason one contact form is provided is to keep your email address secure from email address harvesting spam bots. Posting it in the form you have done on that page guarantees it will be harvested.

    thanks for the advice re email.

    still no dice with the form – i have removed all text and even removed and reinstated the page but the code comes through as though written all on one line and written over itself.

    if you have any other ideas would love to hear them, thanks again.

    Sadlym I don’t have any other ideas. The shortcode has always worked for me. I just type [contact-form] click publish and there it is. I’m afraid you will have to use the Help button on the top right hand corner of your dashbaord to contact Staff.

    hi again – got around this by pasting in manually in HTML tab and all ok, thanks

    [contact-form]
    [contact-field label="Name" type="name" required="true" /]
    [contact-field label="Email" type="email" required="true" /]
    [contact-field label="Comment" type="textarea" required="true" /]
    [/contact-form]
