Support » Plugin: Contact Form 7 Database Addon - CFDB7 » _url / “Referrer-Page” removed? Why were special mail-tags removed?

  • Resolved krdevio



    I noticed that “Referrer Page” field in CFDB7 has stopped working. I do see in the change log that any tags with underscores were removed: is there a particular reason? The special mail tags available in Contact Form 7 are very useful and functional, it seems to not make any sense to deliberately remove these forcing the use of another plugin or implementing custom tags.

    Please install dynamic hidden field plugin. Then add referral page url.

    [dynamictext name value=”_shortcode”]

    change _shortcode. Add above shortcode in cf7 form after installation.

    Hello Arshid,

    The point was that it seems ridiculous to have to use another plugin to support a tag that is already in Contact Form 7.

    Anyways thank you for providing filters though, I just re-implemented it myself.

    For anyone else with the same problem, as long as having Referral-Page on all of your entries is ok, you can add the following to your functions.php:

    add_filter( 'cfdb7_before_save_data', 'cfdb7_add_url', 10, 1);
    function cfdb7_add_url( $form_data ) {
        // Get submission first
        $submission = WPCF7_Submission::get_instance();
        if( empty($submission) ) return $form_data;
        $form_data["Referrer-Page"] = $submission->get_meta( 'url' );
        return $form_data;
