Problem with "send_mail.php" and WordPress

Hello guys,

My name is Paula, I’m venturing on WordPress and I am creating my own website. I take this opportunity to apologize for my English because I am Brazilian and my English is not perfect yet. But I think you will understand me and help me :)

I bought a theme on ThemeForest, i’m installation normally, but the contact form is having problems with the variables used.

Let me explain: the form has 3 fields (Name , Email and Message), the visitor fills out and submits, however, get only the name and email address of the visitor, but the message that I do not get visitor wrote.

I am in contact with the support of the theme for almost 10 days and are not solving. Perhaps because of problems with their language (french).

I’m not a programmer, but I decided the little I know, I see clearly wrong in the formmail code (refer to fields / variables used).

See if you can help me solve:

If you need any more information or file, I can post too.

Well, the file “send_mail.php” 'm finding strange line 6 ( $ msg = " ). Such is not the variable that should be written with any value or different?

I’m getting emails like this below:

    Name: Test João

    Message sent from website on date  Friday, March 14th, 2014, hour: 07:42 PM.


Sorry, as I said, I’m not a programmer, I went by instinct and curiosity even. If you can help me, I am sooooo thankful.

Thanks in advance to all.

Paula Viegas
