Wordpress Question

I recently helped someone move their wordpress site to GoDaddy.  Now we get an error message on the contact page although the rest of the site looks good.   It appears that the form is not found from the error message:

[contact-form-7 404 "Not Found"]

Note that the page itself is intact but the submission of the contact request is missing.  I tried to create the new form but, given my lack of familiarity with wordpress I am having some trouble.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Try disabling and then renabling the Contact Form 7 plugin.  Plugins sometimes need to write config data to the wp-options table on activation and that data can contain server paths.  Moving servers changes the paths and usually breaks the plugin until the data is re-written.

How do I do that?  I am very unfamiliar with WordPress

Login as the administrator, go to the Plugins section, locate Contact Form 7, click Disable. Clear caching (if installed), click Enable.
