Support » Plugin: Contact Form 7 Confirm Email Field » Great when fixed, but poorly maintained

  • I submitted below comment on an open support request that is about 2 months old:

    This seems like it would be a really nice plugin if the author would maintain/fix it. I am NOT a coder, but I waded into this because I really think this sort of validation is valuable.

    I found the comment by aswitahidayat to be correct. There was no message in the code for invalid_confirm_email. Digging back into a much older support thread, I found this:

    add_filter( ‘wpcf7_messages’, ‘confirm_email_messages’);

    function confirm_email_messages($messages) {
    $messages[‘invalid_confirm_email’] = array(
    ‘description’ => __(‘The email addresses do not match.’),
    ‘default’ => __(‘The email addresses do not match.’),

    return $messages;

    After some fiddling around, I determined where to insert the “add_filter…” and “function…” pieces. Plugin seems to work now with WPv4.5.2. What I don’t understand is why the author says he fixed this some 8 months ago, but the above fix is not in the plugin I installed today. And the same problem is reported 2 months ago.

    I would love to up this rating to 5-stars, and I will if I become convinced that the author is properly responding to issues and committing fixes he says in support are done, but in fact are NOT in the plugin when downloaded.
