Contact page and form Issues
It is suggested to use Contact/plugin Page template (which is added in recent updates), Instead of Contact form template, and then use https://wordpress.org/plugins/ninja-forms/ to create the form of your liking.
Above plugin gives you a shortcode, you can place that shortcode in Themeoptions/contact on the bottom.
When you do that, the contact form will be powered by powerful and popular ninja form plugin which provides you world of freedom and options unlike my tiny form. ( and ninja form works for most people as its downloaded over 1.5 million times !! https://ninjaforms.com/ )
This change was done because plugins can handle the Form better than theme.
