Poppy Error: Could not instantiate mail function.

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I keep getting the following error when testing out the Poppy mail function on my site at: 59sp.mparkerdev.com/work

 

 

I've used Poppy previously on other sites with no problem, so not sure what the issue is.  I've tried different emails, deleting and reuploading plugin, and the usual steps.  Based on some of the other forum threads, I'm wondering if this is something on the server side that I need to fix (permission issue?). Any help is greatly appreciated, and if there's an alternative to Poppy that anyone recommends, please let me know!

 

Thanks!!

That error is PHPMailer reporting the fact it cannot get any mail functions to work with PHP.

PHPMailer is part of WordPress Core.

 

So yes, more than likely PHP is not configured to send out emails.

      Hi 
      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date

      Hello,
      I've been having trouble unlocking the template section for past couple of weeks. When I try clicking nothing happens. 
      I've deleted my custom css and removed plugins. Im down to having only the following plugins:
      Akismet
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      WooCommerce
      It was working fine before i have no idea what's going on with it.

      My DMS 2 site http://www.heart-stone.com/ will not save any new custom css... I can still edit templates and publish those but any custom css that I enter never saves.
      All WP files, themes, and plugins are up to date. 
      Any thought about what might be causing this?

      Is there a way to edit the custom CSS via FTP? I know I can edit the custom code in the Chrome editor but is there a file path I can use to find and edit the CSS directly from our FTP?
      Thanks in advance for the help!
