[resolved] Contact Form 7 (v.3.2.1) Required Fields not working properly (3 posts)

    I was using v.2.4.6 on one of my client sites and had problems with required fields being submitted successfully with no input so I upgraded to the latest version (3.2.1) and I am having the exact same problems. There are also reports of lots of spamming coming through.

    The shortcode I am using for my form is:

    <div id="enquiry">
    <p>Send us your details and we will get back to you.</p>
    <p>[text* your-name id:name "Name"] </p>
    <p>[email* your-email id:email "Email Address"] </p>
    <p>[text* telephone id:telephone "Telephone"] </p>
    <p>[text* postcodeContact id:postcodeContact "Postcode"] </p>
    <p>[textarea* enquiry id:enquiry-field "Your Enquiry"] </p>
    <p>[submit class:cta_send "" ]</p>

    Has anyone else had this same problem? Or any other problem related that might fix this in hindsight?

    Try deactivating all other plugins and switching to the default theme.

    Thanks Takayuki.

    I managed to figure out what the problem was. The 'Default Value' was being considered as a value, therefore passing the validation on all but the Email Address. A simple fix but it means I have to amend the design of the site for labels where I had not intended to use them in the first place.

    Major problem IMO when using this plugin, despite how useful it can be at times.
