Contact Form 7 Shortcode Enabler

Description

Many themes, as well as other plugins, provide shortcodes for layout options like multi-column-layouts, tabs, etc.

By default, Contact Form 7 forms can not include shortcodes provided by WordPress or third-party-plugins or -themes.
It only processes its own shortcodes used to generate form elements.

This plugin enables the usage of external shortcodes inside Contact Form 7 Forms.

Simple, Effective & Brilliant – just get it!

How many of you love the simplicity & reliability of contact form 7? Well, I believe millions of people do – and I’m one of them.

For me the problem with CF7 was its lack of styling, I know this has been an issue for you too. “Too hard”, I’ve seen many of you comment.

Like many of you, I opted for other forms which include drag & drop builders. Recently, my drag & drop form builder cost me, probably, thousands of dollars. It told me all was working well and even sent test emails OK. However, it wasn’t working on the website – for weeks!

To this end, I turned back to the most dependable, efficient & lightweight contact form I know, CF7.

Not being able to live with the lack of styling available for CF7, I searched the web for a simple solution and came across this plugin.

It has a long, but descriptive title. It only had 900 downloads and just one review, but I gave it a shot anyway.

The result? The most efficient, reliable & dependable contact form on the planet now looks great on my websites.

If, like me, you have spent too much money on several different contact forms, this is fantastic news for you.

Implementing the short-codes is easy once you get your head around it. The shot-codes used are those that already exist within your theme. If you’re using the Avada theme, then you use the Avada short-codes. If using the X Theme, then you use the short-codes generated by that theme.

It’s pretty simple. However, if you get stuck, I’ll be happy to assist. If you’d like a really attractive effect when clicking inside the text fields, I have some CSS to share with you which will do this.

Check out my forms on boyd-design.com.au & archiimage.net and I’m certain you’ll agree that this plugin is one of the most valuable around.

I can’t simply believe this plugin only has 900 installs and just one review. Hopefully this review will help change this.

Many thanks, Tobias – absolutely love this plugin and I thank you for taking your valuable time to make it available.

Cheers,

Boyd.
