    New Contact Form Questions

    Github says "
    <mvt:comment> <!-- By default, this form is designed to send to the store email address. You can change this by replacing g.store:email with '[email protected]_domain.com' -->"

    1. Regarding the above: Should I replace every instance of g.store:email with [email protected] within my new CTFMnewpagename page template?

    2. I make no changes to contact.js, correct?

    3. Within CTFMnewpagename, if I want a custom subject, not located in the form, I edit <mvt:assign name="l.mail:subject" value="'[' $ g.store:name $ ' Edit this to insert custom subject line? ' $ g.contactSubject" /> only, correct?

    1. Only edit that one instance in <mvt:assign name="l.mail:to" value="g.store:email" />
    2. Correct
    3. Correct

      Poop. Updated #1 to
      <mvt:assign name="l.mail:to" value="[email protected]" /> and got the following error:

      Error compiling template: Line 33: Expression compilation failed: Found additional argument '@' while looking for operator

        Try:
        Code:
        <mvt:assign name="l.mail:to" value="'[email protected]'" />

          Okay, that fixed my error, but I cannot click the submit button on the page where the form exists

            Hi Jamie,

            Make sure you assign the "contact" JavaScript Resource to your new page.

              I must be getting bleary-eyed. On CTFMnewpagename, the form in the Content Section of Readytheme Components, or the actual page template the form will display on?

                Hi Jamie,

                The JavaScript Resource will need to be assigned to the new contact page like it is to CTUS.

                  I still haven't figured out how I am "assigning" the "contact" JavaScript Resource to my new page.

                  I feel like I am taking you down a rabbit hole with me Matt. I'm so sorry.

                  Won't let me add the code to the forum, so I'm going to private message you. I hope that is okay

                    Hi Jamie,

                    To assign the resource to the new page:
                    • Navigate to User Interface -> CSS/JavaScript Resources -> JavaScript Resources
                    • Select the "contact" resource
                    • Click the three dots next to In-Line Edit and select Pages
                    • Scroll to the new page, click assign, and then close

                      Bless you Matt!! And, thank you for holding my hand. That was simply too easy and I should have known that!

                      You are indeed the best and most patient!

                          I followed Matt's instructions above to add a bit of custom css for category and product pages (thank you Matt - those 3 dots are easy to overlook.)

                          Is there possibly something I missed? Or a cache that's causing me grief? I even changed my css file to one simple and visually obvious rule (yellow background for one div's id) - saved then reloaded category and product page - no yellow. Used devtools to see if something was overriding it - it's not even in there.

                            ksechrist Can you post a link to the page in question? If you are using a service like ClourFlare, you may need to clear your cache there.

                              Thank you Matt - I was already suspecting caching but didn't think this site was using cloudflare. Your reply made me dig deeper and realize it is!
