My contact form is not working. Please advise!

Radar uses wp_mail to process the contact form, which may require you to change a few settings on your server before you can use it. According to the WordPress codex, you will need the following. If you don’t feel comfortable changing those settings, you may need to contact your host!

  • Settings SMTP and smtp_port need to be set in your php.ini
  • Also, either set the sendmail_from setting in php.ini, or pass it as an additional header

Configure SMTP Plugin

If you use Gmail there is an even simpler fix. To override the contact form’s default settings, you can use a plugin like Configure SMTP to send the email via SMTP instead. If you use Gmail, it’s a super easy setup.

  • Download, install and activate the Configure SMTP Plugin.
  • Go to SettingsSMTP.
  • Check the Send via Gmail option.
  • Enter smtp.gmail.com in the SMTP Host setting.
  • Enter 465 in the SMTP Port setting.
  • Set the Secure Connection Prefix to SSL.
  • Check Use SMTPAuth.
  • Enter your Gmail username and password in the SMTP username and password fields.
  • Save changes.

Your settings should look just like this: Settings Screenshot. You can use the Send Test Email button to test your settings. Be sure to check the contact form on the template as well! If setup correctly, the Radar form will now use the Gmail SMTP settings instead of the default wp_mail settings.

How do I change the language?

Radar comes with .mo and .po language translation files. Check out the Language Files section of this great article about translating theme and plugin files. You can also check out this great video that walks you through the process of translating a file.
