    Contact form not working

    I downloaded a Wordpress website as HTML for one of my customers as their host is terrible with Wordpress. ---The Wordpress website was using contact form 7 and I configured it before converting to HTML... can anyone tell me how to get it to work correctly when submitting the form? Right now it doesn't do anything.... see https://haybaleheights.com/contact-us/index.html

    Like most Web forms that one uses a php back end. Did you configure that as well?

    Said PHP in this case most likely being wordpress itself, being why the OP needs the full copy of wordpress that was running, and not just the HTML output BY wordpress.

    The entire first sentence:

    Itself being outright sketchy, since if what was grabbed is just the HTML then NONE of the functionalty that relies on server-side processing is going to work. That means no FORMS, nothing that relies on AJAX or REST... etc, etc.

    Of course it it was turdpress I'd just junk the whole mess and start over. It's likely riddled with the traditional laundry list of developer incompetence so common to that train wreck of how NOT to build a website.
