Does anyone know how to get Display to work with the “wp-mail-smtp” plugin?
Do I need to modify the send.php file?
Thanks very muchNovember 4, 2010 at 7:54 am #36776
WP Mail Plugin should work with Display (no error reports up to now). As far as I know the plugin just changes WordPress Mail settings, and isn’t influenced by the theme settings.November 4, 2010 at 12:28 pm #36777
Thanks for the reply. It doesn’t seem to be working when I use the contact form.
I’ve set up wp-mail-smtp and successfully sent a test message. But I receive nothing when using the contact form.

The WP Mail SMTP plugin requires the mail function to be changed to wp_mail. Open up send.php and change it on (or around) line 71 and it should send mail fine. :)

I did try this, but I’m getting an error
Fatal error: Call to undefined function wp_mail() in /wp-content/themes/display/send.php on line 71
Sorry to keep bugging you about this!!November 4, 2010 at 5:25 pm #36780
What version of WordPress are you using?
wp_mail should work without any problems as it’s part of the WordPress core: http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_mail

Looking in the folder, I can see a wp-mail but not a wp_mail (with an underscore). Is that right?

What was the solution to this thread? I am using the Avisio theme, but this is the only thread I can find dealing with wp_mail.
I am having the same problem with the Contact Us page. I am using WordPress 3.0.1 and wp mail SMPT. In the wp mail SMPT plugin I can send test emails and I am receiving email notifications of comments. So I think the plugin is working.
I have changed the mail function to wp_mail in the send.php
Thanks!November 24, 2010 at 2:14 pm #36784
To get round this problem, I installed the Contact From 7 plugin.
Then I changed the contact page to use a default template (to remove the theme’s contact form), and pasted the new plugin code.
It works perfectly and was a really easy solution.
Hope that helps.November 24, 2010 at 2:21 pm #36785
That should have said Contact Form 7.
You can also use a Captcha using this method.November 24, 2010 at 10:47 pm #36786
Thank you very much!!
I tried Contact Form 7, which worked with wp_mail. When testing I was finding that our spam filter was catching incoming ‘contact us’ messages, whereas it wasn’t stopping general WordPress communications.
For the time being I am trying out the ‘contact us’ button from contactme.com. This has the advantage that now I have their email whitelisted, so that new contacts come into our email box.
Work in progress!!
Thanks for helping us out,
