== Installation ==

1. Install automatically through the `Plugins`, `Add New` menu in WordPress, or upload the `si-contact-form` folder to the `/wp-content/plugins/` directory. 

2. Activate the plugin through the `Plugins` menu in WordPress. Look for the Settings link to configure the Options.

Click `Pages`, click `Add New`, add a title to your page, enter the shortcode `[si-contact-form form='1']` in the page, uncheck `Allow Comments`, click `Publish`. 

4. Test an email from your form.

5. Updates are automatic. Click on "Upgrade Automatically" if prompted from the admin menu. If you ever have to manually upgrade, simply deactivate, uninstall, and repeat the installation steps with the new version.

= Is this plugin available in other languages? =

Yes. To use a translated version, you need to obtain or make the language file for it.
At this point it would be useful to read [Installing WordPress in Your Language](http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress_in_Your_Language "Installing WordPress in Your Language") from the Codex. You will need an .mo file for this plugin that corresponds with the "WPLANG" setting in your wp-config.php file. Translations are listed below -- if a translation for your language is available, all you need to do is place it in the `/wp-content/plugins/si-contact-form/languages` directory of your WordPress installation. If one is not available, and you also speak good English, please consider doing a translation yourself (see the next question).

= This contact form sends E-mail with UTF-8 character encoding for US and International character support. =

English-language users will experience little to no impact. Any non-English questions or messages submitted will have unicode character encoding so that when you receive the e-mail, the language will still be viewable.

If you receive an email with international characters and the characters look garbled with symbols and strange characters, your e-mail program may need to be set as follows: 

How to set incoming messages character encoding to Unicode(UTF-8) in various mail clients:

Evolution:
View > Character Encoding > Unicode

Outlook Express 6, Windows Mail:
Please check "Tools->Options->Read->International Settings". Un-check "Use default encoding format for all incoming messages" 
Now select "View->Encoding", select "Unicode(UTF-8)"

Mozilla Thunderbird:
Click on Inbox.
Select "View->Character Encoding", select "Unicode(UTF-8)"

Gmail:
No setting necessary, it just works.
