Questions/ issues with Perch forms
Hi, I have got a contact form basically working in Perch, but am still running into a few issues. It seems to me that I've run into some bugs here, but you'll have to let me know what you think about that.
When I log in to Perch, and go to the Forms page (title: 'Listing Forms'), I see 3 forms, all called the same thing ('ContactForm'), and all with an identical number of responses listed. Why are there 3 identical forms listed here? My intention is to have one contact form available across the website, the form submitted from different pages on that site, but with all submissions coming together in a single place.
When I then click on one of these forms to see the responses, I seem to hit a bug. Hitting 'view response' for any message displays the same message - one sent 11/07/2018, a seemingly spammy message (it's in Russian script, with a web url). What's going on here? Possibly related, the response numbering is weird - it lists multiple messages as #0. However - clicking 'download csv' does return the correct responses, so the form responses are being stored in Perch, just not output properly via the Form Responses screen.
Finally - I have had trouble with spam submissions. I want to check: in order for Akismet to work on my Contact Form, I need to put the Akismet key in the Blog settings of Perch - is that right? i.e., I am checking there is no Form settings of Perch somewhere that I need to add the Akismet key to. As I understand it, I also need to add "antispam=..." to the perch input tags on the Contact Form. Then is that sufficient to get the antispam working? Is there then any way that I can check Akismet is working, or test it out?
Thanks for your help. Let me know if you need screen shots or any additional information on the above.
