Vantage - email not working
I have been setting up a site for the last couple of days and this morning added the plugin Contact 7. But when I try to use the form I get an error message. So next I tried to register a new user – the registration goes thru (i.e. user is added) but no email is delivered to either the user or admin. Using WP
1. So I went to an unused domain and installed wordpress 4.7 and installed the theme twenty sixteen and registered a new user. It was successful. The email was delivered to the user and admin
2. Then I installed the theme twenty fifteen and registered a user. Success. The user and admin got an email.
3. Then I installed vantage – changed nothing – just tried to register a new user. The user gets registered but NO email is delivered to admin or user.
SO I deleted 4.7 and went back and reinstalled wp
4.6 and redid the TEST exactly as above. Steps 1 to 3. EXACTLY the same results.
Clearly there is an issue with sending email that is being affected by the Vantage theme.
