Hi everyone,   This website has been up a while and I went to test the form after fixing an issue with the emailer WP SMTP and I noticed the text field doesn't accept spaces.  Here's the link: https://oakandinktitle.com/contact/   I'm out of ideas...

Using the debugger tools, I disabled Javascript for that page and I was able to enter spaces for the "Your Full Name" and Message fields. So it's some Javascript that either you or your theme have added somewhere. You can start disabling some suspects and refreshing the page to find the culprit.

For "fun" I tried to hunt down the culprit, again using the debugger tools. Honestly, I'm not even sure what to do with this info, however, if I removed the listener from the Your Name field seen in the screenshot, the problem goes away. The problem is that you can't just decide to not include the jQuery library.

Thanks for looking, I will have to reach out to my theme support.  If I change themes, the problem is resolved.  Thanks!

Another solution is to only market your site to people with one name such as Cher and Madonna. No spaces.

Lol, I wish I could get Cher and Madonna on my websites!
