Support » Plugin: Flamingo » My form submissions are showing up in public feeds

  • Resolved Carrie Koehmstedt


    How do I stop this?

    Flamingo is storing the data from each contact form submission as a post, similar to a blog post, and these form submission posts are showing up in the public “feed” of new posts for my site.

    I have customers submitting private information that should never be made public, it’s intended for my eyes only.

    Please help me make the contact submissions on my site not public.

    If you need my URL, can we do this off-line so that no additional information is violated?

    Flamingo doesn’t store the form submissions as Posts. It stores them as Custom Post Type records with post type flamingo_inbound. The flamingo_inbound post type is not public so they are not shown up in the public feed.

    I guess other plugin or theme is interfering. Try deactivate all other plugins and switching to the default theme to see if it could fix the issue.

    No, it’s Flamingo. Solely and Completely.

    The custom posts are/were showing up in feeds. I deleted Flamingo and it resolved the issue. Except the internet doesn’t forget and there are still instances of the posts being shown.

    So thanks for that.

    I’ve been doing some test with this on my local server and I can tell the information is showin on the public rss
    If you go to all the information stored in this custom post type appears.
    Can’t figure out why is this happening.

    is this being fixed? I’d like to use this plugin

    As far as I know the Flamingo plug-in has not been fixed. I’ve been using Conact Form DB and have absolutely no problems with it – it’s great!
