Support » Plugin: Contact Form 7 » Endless Submitting Icon keeps circling.

  • I have seen this post before, but the solution posted did not apply to me. When the form is submitted there is just an endless loop next to the submit button. The form does actually submit each time submit is pressed, but nothing tells the user that the form has been submitted. As noted before, this leads to multiple submission since there is no confirmation that the form submission worked.

  • I am having this same problem and would LOVE to hear the answer. I did note that the form works fine in IE7 but not in Chrome. Is there a Chrome specific fix?

    My form is at:

    I disabled my plugins and the form still would not work. I had previously created new pages for my form, and just tried again. The still do not work.

    Hi @rjohnson2,
    You have issue with the server for captcha plugin. Deactivate it and test the form, it will work…

    i don’t think I am using that plugin. is it a part of a different plugin?

    I had the same issue and tried several of the solutions listed including deactivating all my plug-ins, disabling my theme, etc. These solutions worked for others, but did not work for me.

    I finally completely uninstalled the contact form 7 and reinstalled it and it worked after that. Don’t know if it will work for you, but its an easy thing to try.

    SOLVED! I had this issue too, and it’s one of several ways that Contact form 7 can break. In this instance, it’s a javascript conflict, perhaps with a plugin or the theme itself, and that’s keeping the user from seeing the success message, even as the admin gets the note. To solve it, add the following function to your theme’s functions.php file:

    // De-register jQuery from Contact Form 7
    add_action( 'wp_print_scripts', 'my_deregister_javascript', 100 );
    function my_deregister_javascript() {
        wp_deregister_script( 'contact-form-7' );

    Worked like a charm for me, hope it helps somebody else. Feel free to contact me if you need help implementing.

    JimBoom, you are my HERO!!! Been fighting with this since upgrading last week. Thank you!

    Awwww…. thanks. Glad it worked out for you. FYI if the form ever fails in a way that doesn’t send the email out at all, then it’s usually a totally different issue, having to do with the wp mail settings. Ah, but that’s for another post.

    @jimboom & blniko

    This not a solution I would recommend to anyone. The PHP code you supplied simply disables all of Contact Form 7’s Javascript.

    It does stop the arrow spinnning but it’s a purely cosmetic change which achieves nothing. You might as well let the arrow spin.

    Disabling Contact Form 7’s Javascript will mean that you don’t have any field validation amongst other things.

    Importantly it doesn’t deal with the core issue which is a Javascript conflict in your theme or one of your other plugins.

    You do have my sympathy, Javascript conflicts can be very difficult to solve – see Solving CF7 Javascript Conflicts for some guidance.



    i’ve the same problem, only if i use the captcha field, in chrome and iexplorer.
    so with the captcha fields, if i leave all the fields blanks and i click on submit it seems that the form start to send the email, but i can’t see any error messagge (all the fields are compulsory) and there ise the infinite circular arrows.

    i noticed that the form has the same behaviour if i fill all the field icluded the captcha.

    if i remove the definition of the input field (response field):
    [captchar captcha-686 4/4]
    and i click on submit i recevive the error message “There was an error while sending your message. Please try again later or contact in another way the site administrator.”

    so maybe the problem is in the validation function??

    here is the definition of the form:
    <p>Il tuo nome (richiesto)
    [text* your-name] </p>

    <p>La tua email (richiesto)
    [email* your-email] </p>

    [text* your-subject] </p>

    <p>Il tuo messaggio
    [textarea* your-message] </p>
    <p> Inserisci il codice di verifica:
    [captchac captcha-686 size:m] [captchar captcha-686 4/4]</p>

    <p>[submit “Invia”]</p>



    i receive the error message if i remove the response field because inadvertently i’ve closed the mail server demon.

    so with the mail server on the mail starts.

    some other test:
    i use one of the default theme “twenty twelve”, i’ve tried to use the others: twenty ten, twenty eleven-> same bug, spinning arrown, no missing fields message or wrong code message



    solved 🙂
