I am having trouble getting this thing working. I have been trying for hours!

The site is a parallax site

For some reason I cannot get this to work. I have the contact from working on other sites. It posts to /fdc/home/ContactForm which does not exist and I never receive any emails.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Page.php (just the bottom bit)

class Page_Controller extends ContentController {
   public static $allowed_actions = array(
function ContactForm() {
// Create fields
$fields = new FieldList(
         new TextField('nameContact','Name','Name'),
         new TextField('urlContact','Website','Website'),
new EmailField('emailContact','Email','Email'),
new TextareaField('obsContact','Message','Message')
// Create action
$actions = new FieldList(new FormAction('SendContactForm', 'Send'));
// Create Validators
//$validator = new RequiredFields();
//return new Form($this, 'ContactForm', $fields, $actions);
      $form = new Form($this, 'ContactForm', $fields, $actions);
   return $form;
   function SendContactForm($data, $form) {
//Set data
$From = $data['emailContact'];
$To = '';
$Subject = "Website Contact message";
$email = new Email($From, $To, $Subject);
//set template
//populate template
//send mail

<% loop getPages() %>   
   <div class="slide" id="slide$Pos" data-slide="$Pos" <% if $ParallaxRatio %>data-stellar-background-ratio="$ParallaxRatio"<% end_if %>>
            <div class="container clearfix">
            <% loop getGridContent() %>
               <div class="grid_$Columns alpha omega">
            <% end_loop %>
            <% loop $MenuCategorys %>
               <% if $PreColumns > 0 %>
               <div class="grid_$PreColumns alpha omega">
               <% end_if %>
               <div class="grid_$Columns alpha omega">
                        <% loop $MenuItems %>
                           <li>$ItemName <br /><% if $Description %>$Description<% end_if %>$Price<br /><br /></li>
                        <% end_loop %>   
            <% end_loop %>
            <% loop getCP() %>
               <% loop $Up.Up.ContactForm %>
       <form name="contactForm" $FormAttributes>
<h2>Contact Form</h2>
          <div class="inputsrow clearfix">
             <div class="inputicon">
             <div class="inputicon icon2">
             <div class="inputicon icon3">
          <div class="commenttext">

<input type="hidden" name="SecurityID" value="$SecurityID" class="hidden" id="Form_ContactForm_SecurityID" />

          <input type="submit" class="btn5" id="contactSmbt" />
          <div id="msgContact"></div>
          <div id="contactLoader" class="loader">
<% end_loop %>
            <% end_loop %>
<% end_loop %>

It looks like the code was correct but it needed flushing a few times!
Let me know if anyone needs to see more of the code to solve their problem.
