if not then i am sure a lot of members will help out...
remind me if this happens.....

My site is mobile friendly but I found that the menu does not appear. Can someone help me with some advice so that I can put the menu on my mobile as well. I mention that I use

I hope you get it sorted, Carmen!

I don't think I solved it. On the desktop when I look at the mobile it's ok now, but on the mobile it doesn't appear the same as on the desktop. I don't know where the problem is. I still dig lol.

Could it possibly be a theme issue, Carmen?

Hey Carmen,

Looks like you're not alone in experiencing this issue. Google searching your question, well... see screen print below...

So, if you are still struggling with this issue, you may find one of those tickets submitted to the theme developer will offer you a resolve.

Please, DO remember to BACK UP your website BEFORE making any changes... juuuuuust in case you need to restore your website.

Hope you find this helpful.

In the Contact Us section send comments to all kinds of people with all kinds of offers. And hackers too. Although I wrote to contact me if they have questions about cats or m

No, never delete the Contact Us page - Google considers that a required page on every site, so you'll hurt your rankings by doing that.

I would agree about the Captcha page requirement. At least that stops most bots.

Thank you.

Hey Carmen,

Here's what I did to stop the spam: Hope you find this helpful.

Why cats do things - my top ten tips as an ebook could be the answer and build your list is one way, offer them something of value.

You may have done this already through something like aweber... I love reading about why cat do things ... like why is the stomach so senstive, why do they sit on my chest and look away from me etc..

Often the easiest method is to simply create a "contact us" page, but add a message along the lines of "the best way to contact us is to leave a comment here on our website. Alternatively, you can reach out via our social channels".

You shouldn't remove your full contact page or not have one (as it shows a lack of care towards visitors) but you don't necessarily need an actual contact form.

Thank you

Hi, you can always put a Captcha on the form to stop being it abused by bots.

Also if you are providing services I would keep it.

Thank you

You're welcome.
