Contact Form 7 is an excellent plugin for creating and managing forms in WordPress but some of its advanced functionality is hidden away under complex control variables which cause a lot of frustration for many of its users.
Therefore, I decided to create an “Extras” add-on for Contact Form 7 (also on GitHub) which adds a simple user interface with only checkboxes and input fields for most of that complex functionality. Here is what I mean:
Currently it has support for:
- disabling AJAX for form submissions,
- adding custom redirects on successful form submissions and
- tracking form submissions with Google Analytics.
I built it as a free complimentary plugin for my Storage for Contact Form 7 plugin which keeps copies of all contact form submissions in the WordPress backend in addition to them being sent via e-mail. This ensures that you never loose a single business inquiry or lead due to e-mail failure.
I am currently waiting for the plugin to be approved for the official plugin repository. It is now available from the official WordPress plugin repository. Please let me know if there is any other functionality that you would like to see added to this plugin.
