Support » Plugin: Contact Form 7 Multi-Step Forms » [multiform Shortcode outside the Form? And a little suggestion

  • Greetings from Germany,

    thanks for your plugin, it does a very good job in breaking up a big form into more conveniant smaller steps. I also like the concept that you use different pages for displaying the different form parts, this gives a grat flexibilty in general, like diplaying pictures and other stuff not relating to the form itself.

    However, I found a slight disadvantage regarding the [multiform shortcode. Wouldn’t it be possible to parse that shortcode in the page content as well? So I don’t have to mix up the form itself with output I only use for presentation? Plus, could we get a sort of “Steps” Shortcode as well?


    Thank you for filling out the form so far, [multiform your-name]. You filled out [multiform steps-done] steps of [multiform steps-total] total steps. Only [multiform steps-left] steps more and you get a nice present.

    I hope that I could explain myself well enough. Thanks again for the effort in that plugin.

  • Another nice thing would be to add the $form_id to the filter wh_hide_cf7_step_message, so one could have different messages for different multistep forms. In my case I wanted to add a link to the first step of the form, of course that does only work if there is only one multistep.

    Others than that: Works like a charm!

    Those are very good suggestions. I don’t have time right now to add the shortcodes in, but will think of doing so in the future. I have added the form_id to the wh_hide_cf7_step_message filter which is available in 2.0.5 now.
