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.

Installation

  1. Upload the entire cf7-enable-shortcode folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.

The Plugin requires no additional configuration.

I’m missing some feature in the plugin

I’m pretty sure you are missing a feature in Contact Form 7 itself, not in this plugin. Otherwise, please drop me a message and I’ll see what I can do.

Reviews

Nice plugin but…

I’ve created a shortcode that shows a number ID of a product,
It’s like: Codice Corso: [acf field=”CodiceID”]
It shows correctly in the form side.
But on the email side shows the shortcode itself..

Show the shortcode in the email, can be a great improvement to the plugin!

Simple and Effective

This plugin does exactly what it says on the tin, no complicated set up.
I can now use shortcodes within my contact forms, and with a bit of extra effort, I can use them in the Email Body using wpcf7_special_mail_tags filter as well 🙂
