I have decided not to use a plugin to create a simple contact form on my site and used some php code to do the same job. This was so i could style the form exactly how I wanted to. However when I test the form and submit it, the user is sent to the 404 error page despite the url at the top of the browser indicating the contact page that exists. I'm not sure why that would be the case.?
I followed this tutorial to create the template page on my site http://wpmu.org/how-to-build-your-own-wordpress-contact-form-and-why/
Here is the form on my test site http://sandpit.jonathanbeech.co.uk/contact-2/
