Support » Plugin: Contact Form 7 » Datepicker stopped working in Firefox Mozilla 20.0

  • Resolved tihon


    After recent update appeared a new date-picker within CF7. An old plugin “Contact Form 7 Datepicker” v. 2.2.1 was deactivated and subsequently deleted. Nevertheless, the new integrated datepicker fails to work in any form under Firefox. It doesn’t even appear their, just a blank field, nothing more. I have to admit, it does work in Chrome and Chromium (though in rather strange way). So, what happen? Is it a bug in CF7 or just my unlucky day to present a new form to my customer?
    Please anyone help if you can!!!

  • The same issue under Internet Explorer (which doesn’t come as a surprise though). But I swear, there’s a BUG. Help needed asap. Thanks!

    At this moment not all browsers support date type of input element to provide date-picking UI. As far as I know, even the latest Firefox doesn’t support it, and shows usual text input field instead of date-picker. It is not a bug.

    Dear Takayuki Miyoshi,

    If it’s not not a bug, what is it? Unsupported feature? No disrespect. You plugin is GREAT! But this was a bummer, just before I had to deliver my work to a customer. Very disappointing, but still very grateful for your plugin. So, don’t get me wrong. HTML5 & CSS3 still have a long way to go to be supported be all major browsers.
    I had to go back to your previous version of the CF7 with additional datepiker plugin. Otherwise, no delivery – no money. You know that.
    Anyhow, thank you for you reply! Keep it up, I support CF7!

    I am already fixing the problem with the new version of contact form 7. Please contact me if you need. [email removed – please keep help on these forums]

    @khmercms – please keep help on these forums.

    Unfortunately when I type in a date in the date field in Firefox, the form won’t validate. Keep getting “date format seems invalid” even though I am using the right format. Any idea why that could be? It does validate in Chrome where I use the datepicker.
    It is a live site so unfortunately I can’t keep it up for you to try out. I will replace it with a text field for now.

    Refer – DD-MM-YYYY format is not supported.

    The new CF7 date tag is a HTML5 date input type which currently has only limited cross-browser support. See for the low down on this new HTML5 form element.
