Support » Plugin: Contact Form 7 Multi-Step Forms » Back button no longer working

  • Resolved fijisunshine


    Great plugin!

    On page 2 of 2 of my CF7 multi-step form, I have a Back button and a Submit button. Here is my code for the buttons:

    <button class=’wpcf7-form-control wpcf7-previous’ type=’button’></button> <button class=’wpcf7-form-control wpcf7-submit’></button>

    However, when I click the Back button nothing happens. There are no javascript console errors. If I remove the “type=’button'” code in the Back button, then when I click the Back button it submits the form as if I had clicked the Submit button.

    I believe this CF7 multi-step form used to work great but no longer. Any suggestions? Thank you

    One thing to make sure of is to have the next url from step one be exactly the same as the url which step 2 is on. Sometimes not having the trailing backslash might mess it up.

    If you post a url to your form I can take a look.

    Thanks for your response. Yes, that was the issue. It’s now fixed. I was aware of that url issue from other support posts so I had already checked that my url’s were correct, but I had made a small mistake.

    I just noticed that the format for your [multistep] tags has changed. It used to be something like:

    [multistep “1-2-”]
    [multistep “2-2”]

    Does this old format still work? Or is the new format using “first_step” and “last_step” required? Thanks again

    Great news. glad it’s fixed.

    The old format still works, but I would recommend using the new format with “first_step” and “last_step”. The old format will eventually be phased out and only the new format will get feature updates.
