Problem: Getting Contact form running ?

Hi

I'm using Version 1.6

Installed first "Orchard Messaging" and "Email Messaging - Version: 1.6".
Then as described by J. Zablocky selected "Contact Form by CyberStride"
After enabling this module, a new content type of contact Page should be autmatically added to the site. Clicking New--->Contact Page will open a form for creating Contact Page items.

In this case I can't find any items to continue.

Can somebody give me a hint ?

Thank you

That module has been broken for several versions. Good news is, you don't need it and can use custom forms instead.

Hello

Thank you very much for your quick response.

I've an additional question. Before I  changed to the Orchard product I used WEB ASP.NET. 
My Hoster requested to integrate about 10-12 lines of Code  Including a "ASP Mail" component.
Do I need to create an own Module when I use the initial position under Orchard MVC ?

If ASP MAIL can send emails, then the Custom Form module together with Email module can.

If your hoster wants you to use a specific component you'd better find a new one, there are so many good ones out there which don't force you to do anything.

+1 run from those guys, they apparently have no idea what they are talking about.

I've just created a fork named ContactForm16 with fixes for compatibility with release 1.6. Hope this help.
