    Okay, so I'm having trouble getting the contact form on my site working. You can take a look here. I'm not sure of the problem, but I know almost nothing about PHP and HTML. When you try to submit the form, you get an error message. I'm almost sure it's the Contact.php file that's causing the issues, but I'm not positive. Anyway, here are the three files that make it possible...

    Configuration.xml
    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <!--
      --	Please read this information to learn how to set up the contact form integrated
      --	into the template.
      --	
      --	This readme file explains in details the meaning of the settings that can be
      --	done in the fcContactFormConfiguration.xml configuration file.
      --	
      --	It is recommended for you to use an XML editor to make changes to this file
      -- 	because it’s less possible to make an error in the markup which can cause to
      --	a not working contact form.
      -->
    <contactFormConfiguration> 
    		   
    	<!--
    	  --	An e-mail address which will be used to receive messages from your contact form.

    	  -->
    	<emailTo>sbaroni@servingresults.com</emailTo>
    	
    	<!--

    	<!--

    	  --	the form will be processed even if the user types in an incorrect e-mail address.
