Contact Form 7 Controls


This plugin enables simple controls for some of the advanced features of the Contact Form 7 plugin:

  • Disable AJAX form submissions
  • Disable default form CSS
  • Disable automatic paragraph formatting
  • Disable HTML5 input field types or enable the HTML5 input type fallback
  • Track form submissions, errors and completions with Google Analytics and Matomo (formerly Piwik)
  • Redirect to URL on form submission
  • Specify the Google Recaptcha language

Please note that some settings work on per-page level and will inherit for all forms on the same page. For example, disabling AJAX form submissions for one form will disable AJAX submissions on all forms on the same page.

How to save Contact Form 7 submissions in the WordPress database?

The “Storage for Contact Form 7” plugin stores all contact form submissions (including attachments) securely in the WordPress database. It also provides a CSV export of the form entries.


Great addition to CF7

Following the removal of the on_sent_ok hook from CF7, I’ve tried several plugins to perform redirection following form submission, and this is the only one I’ve found that works reliably with all browsers. And it has other useful features. 5 stars.

Fixes the ReCaptcha language issue

Works great! Only working solution I could find to properly set the ReCaptcha language (as auto-language detect is generally useless on a multi-language site).

Works Great!!

Works Great!!! Having issues with the Contact 7 Form sample code. Found this plugin which creates easy functionality. Thanks for making our lives easier!!
