Support » Plugin: Contact Form 7 » [Plugin: Contact Form 7] CF7 inserting P where there isn't one

  • Resolved sheabaker


    I am trying to have an address entered with the city/state/zip all on one line.
    However, a <p> keeps getting executed after the state field pushing the zip field into a new <p>.

    I have tried cleaning the code, reentering the code, copying the code from other sites where I have done this successfully. Nothing works.

    If someone could help me figure out why :

    Company Address (required):
    [text* companystreet 70/ watermark “Street Address”][text* companycity 20/ watermark “City”],[select* companystate id:companystate “MA” “RI” “ME” “NH” “VT” “NY”],[text companyzip 8/12 id:companyzip watermark “Zip Code”]

    outputs the following :

    <input type="text" name="companyname" value="" class="wpcf7-form-control wpcf7-text wpcf7-validates-as-required" size="70" /></span></p>
    <p>Company Address (required):<br />
    <span class="wpcf7-form-control-wrap companystreet"><br />
    <input type="text" name="companystreet" value="" class="wpcf7-form-control wpcf7-text wpcf7-validates-as-required wpcf7-use-title-as-watermark" size="70" title="Street Address" /></span><br /><span class="wpcf7-form-control-wrap companycity"><br />
    <input type="text" name="companycity" value="" class="wpcf7-form-control wpcf7-text wpcf7-validates-as-required wpcf7-use-title-as-watermark" size="20" title="City" /></span>,<span class="wpcf7-form-control-wrap companystate"><br />
    <select name="companystate" id="companystate" class="wpcf7-form-control  wpcf7-select wpcf7-validates-as-required">
    <option value="MA">MA</option>
    <option value="RI">RI</option>
    <option value="ME">ME</option>
    <option value="NH">NH</option>
    <option value="VT">VT</option>
    <option value="NY">NY</option>
    <p></span>,<span class="wpcf7-form-control-wrap companyzip"><br />
    <input type="text" name="companyzip" value="" id="companyzip" class="wpcf7-form-control wpcf7-text wpcf7-use-title-as-watermark" size="8" maxlength="12" title="Zip Code" /></span></p>

    I would be very grateful.

    I can’t have that zip hanging out all by itself.
    Thank you.

    It’s not Contact Form 7 inserting the <p> and <br>. Maybe another plugin or theme does. Try deactivating all other plugins and switching to the default theme.

    Tested the plugins. Not the issue.

    Which themes, and it did in fact go away. But when I go back to the theme it needs to be, the break happens again.

    Any ideas on how to track down the offending code in the theme? I wouldn’t even know what to look for.

    Thank you.

    How did you insert the Contact Form 7 shortcode?

    Yeah, right, plugin is not inserting paragraphs and spans… Then what is this: <span class=”wpcf7-form-control-wrap INPUT NAME ATTRIBUTE”> etc…??? I’m getting pretty tired with all the form plugins wrapping inputs…

    RE: Takayuki
    I just placed it on the page:

    [contact-form-7 id=”95″ title=”General Contact”]

    Does anyone have any tips on how to track down the offending <p> tag and eliminate it?

    OK. What theme do you use? Can I see the contact page?

    Well, I actually have the same problem with a new site..
    On an other site using the same WP, Plugins (more or less) and Theme it works okay.

    See the first select on

    All fileds have this problem but I can solve that with
    .wpcf7-form-control-wrap br { display: none; }
    .wpcf7-form-control-wrap p { display: none; }

    But on .wpcf7-form-control-wrap.wpcf7-select.vhv_titel (etc.) I can not get this to work.
