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

After activation of the plugin, you’ll find FMPress on the WordPress admin screen menu,
and FMPress tab appears on the “Contact Form 7” setting screen.


How to activate FMPress Forms plugin?

After activating the plugin, you will see a note at the top of the Administration Screen asking you to add two constants, copy the values and paste the copied content into wp-config.php. Reactivate the plugin after editing wp-config.php.


define( 'FMPRESS_CONNECT_ENCRYPT_KEY', 'xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx' );
define( 'FMPRESS_CONNECT_ENCRYPT_IV', 'xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx' );

How to assign fields in the *FMPress* tab panel?

You must add fm_field- as a prefix to the beginning of the form-tag name in the Form tab panel. (e.g. fm_field-company_name)

It was an smooth experience and amazingly quick operation to setup this plugin to post data from a Contact Form 7-form to a FileMaker database table. And why would you do that, you might ask? Well, if you knew the many ways you can manipulate, automate and script data in FileMaker, you wouldn’t ask. 🙂 This is a beauty. Keep it up – and thanx!
