Support » Plugin: Contact Form 7 » [Plugin: Contact Form 7] Contact form not working in Widget

  • Resolved magnetik



    I’m using latest wordpress 3.3.2 and latest Contact form 7 3.1.2.

    I have a form in a Text widget which was working fine for a while, but now in the sidebar it shows :
    [contact-field label=”Nom” type=”name” required=”true” /] [contact-field label=”e-mail” type=”email” required=”true” /] [contact-field label=”Site” type=”url” /] [contact-field label=”Message” type=”textarea” /]

    Only the field “Submit” is correctly replaced, and shown as a button

    In the widget area, I’ve put : [contact-form-7 id=”890″ title=”new rappel small”]

    Whichis a valid ID etc.

    Everything was working fine until recently.

    Something went wrong with the plugin ?

    Thanks !

  • Could be a bug related with latest Jetpack update which include a way to create contact form too.

    I concur with you, magnetik. I just asked support about this very same problem. I tested this by creating a textwidget CF7 form and then installing JetPack 1.3, plus authorizing it…and the textwidget CF7 forms all began to show untranslated shortcodes for the default form, not even the shortcodes for the CF7 form I had added.

    I hope that Contact Form 7 developpers will find how to address this quickly 🙂

    That’s an option. 🙂 But in this case, it seems that JetPack’s the one with the problem. If I hear from them and if applicable, I’ll post their reply here.

    EDIT: BTW, the only workaround I have for now is, if possible, don’t upgrade to JetPack 1.3.

    EDIT 2: Or, I forget, deactivate the Contact Form in Jetpack 1.3 if you’ve already upgraded.

    Ho ! I had in mind that all Jetpack services had to be enabled.

    Works fine with Contact form of jetpack disabled.

    Thanks 🙂

    np, magnetik. Here’s the official reply from

    The Jetpack custom form module will automatically overwrite Contact Form 7’s. If you’d like to continue using Contact Form 7 instead, you’ll want to deactivate the Jetpack Contact Form module.

    You can do this via your Dashboard -> Jetpack page by clicking on the “Learn More” button under the Contact Form box. Then, click on the “Deactivate” button:

    If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.

    It looks like you’ve found out about the over riding of one to the other. Does this have to do with the shortcodes used between the JetPack Form and Contact Form 7?

    Maybe. Didn’t really use the JetPack Contact Form so don’t know for sure. But upon looking at the code it seems the shortcode ‘contact-form’ is common between the two.

    Guys? What if I’ve deactivated Jetpack’s contact form and it still doesn’t work?

    That’s happening to me, ATM. 🙁

    @wp_martin, you mean you’re still seeing a similar error as magnetik’s? Please give more details about the problem you’re seeing.

    Hi, not exactly, I’ve described my problem here:

    Thanks for your answer.

    Ok, thanks, I get it now…I’ll see if I get the same results as 19hansen86 in your other post.
