Hey Bob,

I configured a ChonroContact form. When I fill the form and hit submit I get the note "Mailer Error: Message body empty". I have tried another simple form with just one textfield and a submit button - same result!

Can you give me any recommendation?
Regards

Hi Matthias,

Have you put anything into the Email message body?

Hey Bob,

I just used a text label field. It is def. a prob. with the "Set up email". I double-checked the "from name" and "from email" setup in the configuration. The website is already uploaded to the web. Does it help to give you a admin-login?

Attached two screenshots

Regards Matthias

HI Matthias,

The one thing I don't see there is the Email Template ?

Hi Bob,
this message error is also displayed if Email Template field contains PHP code has syntax errors.

I hate to bring this topic back up but the solution was not clear at all. What exactly needs to go into the Email Template field? Also, is there a general set of instructions for ChronoContact?

Hi atoddvr6,

What goes into the Email template is the HTML you want to use to display in the body of the email. You include values from your form as {input_name} e.g. {first_name}, {email} etc.

I don't know of any specific documentation for ChronoContact :-(

Bob,

That's great. Thank you for your help. I started by putting {message} in the Email Template field, which got it working, and then I added more fields. Works great!

This is what I have now:
<strong>Phone:</strong> {phone}</br>
<strong>Subject:</strong> {subject}</br>
<strong>Message:</strong> {message}
