Form detected but no submissions

Hello I have a simple contact form that says it has been detected however I have not received any of my test submissions. I have checked spam folder as well.

My site is (

Here is my form for reference:

<form name="contact" method="POST" data-netlify="true"> ... <button className="button" type="submit">Send</button>

Any help is appreciated!

Hiya, sorry you are having trouble getting your forms to work.

This Support Guide is the first port of call to debug any forms issues. There are also many other Support Guides for forms - you can find them here: #Netlify-support:support-guides

We also recommend trying to search the forums or look at topics tagged Netlify forms if you haven’t already - it’s likely your question was already asked by someone else!

If you are still having problems, please provide more information such as what you have already tried, and a link to your live form. :slight_smile:

Hello Perry thank you for the reply. I have followed the Support Guide and dug around for the answer and can’t understand what I have setup incorrectly.

The live form is here:

When I inspect the page I see that the “Netlify” has been removed from the but I do not see the expected hidden input that is suppose to have the form name added to it.

Additionally, when I submit the form the page just refreshes rather than leading to the expected Thank You page.

Any help here is greatly appreciated.

Please consider resolved. I figured out what the problem was.


Please how did you solve it?

May not apply to you as I was building the site using Gatsby and so found what I needed by comparing the Gatsby documentation to the Netlify Support Guide.

The Support Guide mentioned that a hidden field would be dynamically added to the DOM with the same name as the form name but I was not seeing it.

Gatsby’s example added the hidden field in the actual React component which I tried and it then worked.

Hopefully that helps.
