Contact Form 7
Add httpvars module to pass variables from other forms (1 post)

    Sometimes you want to make multiple page forms because they are too long, such as a questionnaire. CF7 does not allow to make multiple pages, it would have been nice if it allowed to send action of a form to another page that contains another CF7 and have the variables passed to it... and then send email containing all variables.

    Anyway, there is a module called httpvars which I got from here:
    http://www.globedesignstudio.com/blog/wordpress/pass-your-post-or-get-vars-through-contact-form7/

    It allows to pass variables from a regular html form to CF7. This module is working fine, but there are several things that makes its usage not perfect.

    - Every time I upgrade CF7, the module gets deleted and I will have to upload it again.
    - it doesn't seem to be very well coded. When I pass checkboxes to email, it may pass the httpvars tag if a checkbox is not selected. However, it always passes the value correctly for checked checkboxes.
    For Example:
    if you have ch1, ch2, ch3, ch4 as the variables of the choices, and ch2, ch3 were selected. what would appear in your email is this:

    [ch1]
    Food
    Beverage
    [ch2]

    Sometimes is just leaves them as Blank

    Food
    Beverage

    - the other problem is that the variables show up as blank in the contact form 7 page (one line for each variable). They should be hidden completely. A workaround is to contain the variables in a CSS Class, and set the class to display:none.

    I just hoped that this module be developed by CF7. (or make some sort of paging the forms).
