Support » Plugin: Contact Form 7 » Fail on use accents in wpcf7_form_tag_data_option filter

  • Resolved brunonar


    I’m using the ‘wpcf7_form_tag_data_option’ (a great filter, btw!) with the following codes:
    For the form: <label Select: [select* menu-178 include_blank]</label>

    add_filter( 'wpcf7_form_tag_data_option', 'uniqueid_wpcf7_categorias', 10, 3 );
    function uniqueid_wpcf7_categorias( $null, $options, $args  ) {
        if (in_array('',$options)) {
            return array("Baba", "Pedreiro", 'Mecanico');
        return $null;

    Everything works fine, but when I change the code:
    return array("Baba", "Pedreiro", 'Mecanico');
    for this code:
    return array("Babá", "Pedreiro", 'Mecânico');,
    the result only shows the “Pedreiro” option.

    I tested a direct input of Babá and Mecânico (like bellow) and it worked out.
    <label Select: [select* menu-178 include_blank "Babá" "Pedreiro" "Mecânico"]</label>

    How could I solve it?

    Thanks in advance.

    I just tested your code on my testing environment and it worked. It correctly rendered the three Babá, Pedreiro, and Mecânico options. I don’t have any idea why the issue is seen on your side.

    BTW, the opening <label> doesn’t have >. I don’t think it’s relevant to the issue, though.



    Hi, I am using wpcf7 with great results until now.
    No idea why, but for some time a have the following error on the bottom of every webpage where contact form 7 was inserted:
    Additionally, a 400 Bad Request error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
    Apache Server at Port 80
    _1403″ name=”cf7ct_security_token” id=”cf7ct_security_token”>
    Could you please help on how can I resolve this issue?
    I use contact form 7 custom skin.
    I know this is not the topic but i hope you will still be so nice and give a hand

    Thanks a lot



    Takayuki, thank you very much for your quicky response!
    I figure out what was happening. My problem was the file’s codification. My bad.
    Again, thank you very much.
