I am having issues with the contact form. It does not submit. How do I get this working? kaleliawilson.com


Hello, from what I see it’s an error within the jQuery file. Something that has been around and created troubles for some people.

Upon inspecting the browser console we saw a 404 Not found error on this:
Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 404 (Not Found) http://your-site-domain/assets/js/jquery-1.10.2.min.map

It’s forcing the browser to look for a file that’s not needed, and when it doesn’t find it, it crashes the scripting. There are two pretty simple fixes for this, you can take whichever you feel more comfortable with (but I suggest you take the first one):

1. Update jQuery to latest found here: http://jquery.com/download/ Download the minified (compressed ) version to the ‘assets/js’ folder of the template and in the footer of index.html find <script src="assets/js/jquery-1.10.2.min.js"></script> and replace the file name with the newly downloaded file – most likely will be ‘assets/js/jquery-1.11.1.min.js

2. If you don’t wish to update the jQuery file, you can open the one you already have ( assets/js/jquery-1.10.2.min.js ) and you’ll notice the first three lines of code look like:
/*! jQuery v1.10.2 | (c) 2005, 2013 jQuery Foundation, Inc. | jquery.org/license
//@ sourceMappingURL=jquery-1.10.2.min.map
You can completely remove this line:
//@ sourceMappingURL=jquery-1.10.2.min.map

This should sort out the jQuery crash that prevents the form from submitting.

PS: We’ve also received your email but decided to post the solution here publicly so that if other users come across this issue, they have a working solution for it.

Hi Alex, Unfortunately that did not work. I’ve replaced the whole file “jquery-1.10.2.min.js” with “jquery-1.11.1.min.js”. The submit button still does not work. Is there anything else it could be?

Hi, indeed the error disappeared. Let’s try updating the Form and Form Validation plugins to their latest versions too, now that jQuery is up to date.

Please download them from the following links and simply replace the following JS files from the “assets/js/plugins” folder:

http://malsup.github.io/min/jquery.form.min.js http://ajax.aspnetcdn.com/ajax/jquery.validate/1.13.0/jquery.validate.min.js

After the update goes live, please get back to us and tell us if it solves the situation.

Kind regards, Alex

I love the theme though I noticed one thing…there seems to be an issue with the navigation being slightly off center when using the media query with a max width of 640px. It’s hard to notice with your live preview because there are four categories. But, if you have three or five categories it’s easy to notice it since the circle for the middle category is not lined up with the vertical line (repeated dot.png). It seems to be about 6px to the left. To keep it centered I changed

#nav ul li { min-width: 50px; font-size: 0.875em; }

on line 890 of style.css so the min-width is at least 63px.

Also, I was thinking of adding the Retina.js like ReagentX mentioned in the comments but when I look at his site on my iPhone I do indeed see the flashing he is talking about with the thumbnails of their work. It seems to be bouncing between the 1x and 2x image files. I haven’t actually tried implementing it on my site though. We will see how it goes.

Hi there, thanks for the purchase and the kind words! Also thanks for pointing out the issue, I’ll have a look at it and try to figure out what’s going on. We’re in the process of updating the scripts and plugins used with Circular so this could be a good time to have a look at other possible issues too. I have my suspicions about the flashing deal that it my be caused by the skills/testimonials slider, since it seems to also add a little blur on the nav items as well on each slide transition, but we’ll need to test properly and see how we can add Retina.js by default it it.

Once again thank you and have a nice weekend! Alex

Thanks for this beautiful template! It looks beautiful. I wonder whether you would like to help my by showing how to use a rotating picture instead of the ‘skills wrap’ on the about-page. The texts may stay on their place. Can you provide the code for this?

Thanks in advanche!
