Support » Plugin: Form to Post » How To…

  • Resolved Daniel Rivera


    I’m a little lost as to how to incorporate the plugin with Fast Secure Contact Form. Where exactly do I need to enter the fields?

    Under the tab Fields: I entered ‘post_title’ in the Subject field & ‘post_content’ in the Message field, but nothing happened after I posted & submitted the form, so I tried:

    Form – extra field 1 – Label- I entered: post_title – field type:text

    Form – extra field 2 – Label – I entered: post_content – field type:textarea

    Still nothin…

    Thanks in advance for any help for the most likely easy to answer/possible dumb question.

    You shouldn’t have to do anything except install and activate both plugins. Then, once a form as at least one submission, it should appear in the CFDB admin page.

    If that is not working, I’m not sure what is wrong. Try temporarily deactivating all other plugins and submit a form and see if it works then.

    Come to think of it, if you don’t get anything, I wonder if the plugin was unable to create its table during installation. I remember someone had this issue a long time ago. Something about the WP login to MySQL didn’t have permission to create a new table.

    If you can look into your database using PHPMyAdmin, see if there is a wp_cf7dbplugin_submits table. If not, you need to create it manually using the following SQL commands.

    CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS wp_cf7dbplugin_submits (
                submit_time DECIMAL(16,4) NOT NULL,
                form_name VARCHAR(127) CHARACTER SET utf8,
                field_name VARCHAR(127) CHARACTER SET utf8,
                field_value LONGTEXT CHARACTER SET utf8,
                field_order INTEGER,
                file LONGBLOB);
    ALTER TABLE wp_cf7dbplugin_submits ADD INDEX submit_time_idx (submit_time);
    ALTER TABLE wp_cf7dbplugin_submits ADD INDEX form_name_idx (form_name);
    ALTER TABLE wp_cf7dbplugin_submits ADD INDEX field_name_idx (field_name);

    I should also note that when the form is submitted it does show up in the Contact Form DB.

    Anyways, thanks for the quick reply. I’ll try deactivating some plugins and checking my database tomorrow and see whats what.

    Much appreciation.

    I switched over to contact form 7 and got it working.
