I recently bought a nice minimalistic Wordpress theme on Themeforest (https://themeforest.net/item/charm-portfolio-for-freelancers-agencies/11364023?ref=ThemeRain). It’s a nice theme, but there’s an issue with the contact form.
I’m getting an error message when I submit the form. The error message mentions “eregi”, and I’ve been advised by my webhost (1&1) that “eregi” refers to PH5.2, whereas 1&1 is now a 5.3 service.
Stepping back to PHP5.2 will incur a monthly cost. They’ve advised me to ask the author to update the contact form to PHP5.3. They claimed its should be a relatively quick fix.
However, I can’t get hold of the author. And the comments section seems full of people failing to get hold of the author too.
So I wondered what my next move here is?
Huge thanks in advance for any help. I’m by no means a coder. My site is almost ready now, and I really just need the contact form to work.
