Support » Plugin: Contact Form 7 » [Plugin: Contact Form 7] Doesn't send with IE6

  • Resolved ScreenfeedFr



    I really love Contact Form 7, it’s very flexible.
    But I have a little problem: it doesn’t send anything with IE6 (and works great with other browsers). The ajax loader appears, then nothing else.
    I tryed with 2 websites: 1 with captcha and askimet, another without captcha nor askimet, it’s the same thing.
    I tryed to deactivate all other plugins (themes are “home-made”), not better.

    You can try it here :

    If you have any idea… Perhaps I missed something 🙁

    The page doesn’t load contact-form-7’s stylesheet. Perhaps a theme issue.

    Yes, it doesn’t load because I dequeued it in my functions.php. And I don’t think it’s a theme issue because I tryed with the twenty-ten theme and it doesn’t work better :/
    I’ll try tomorow with a fresh and clean wordpress installation, just to be sure.

    Hello again.

    So, fresh and clean local install of WP 3.0.1(fr) and CF7 2.4.1.
    Unfortunately, the email is never sent with IE6: press “send”, spinning arrows, and nothing 🙁

    And of course, the first person (after me) trying to send an email with, use IE6 =D (who said “lucky you”?! Jajajaja)

    EDIT: I tryed with the version 2.4, same thing 🙁

    Well, I made some progress.
    Now I know where the problem come from, it’s a javascript issue in my case.
    With IE6, the form works with javascript deactivated only.

    Stay tuned 😉

    EDIT: for those who want to test my contact form et don’t speak french, the fields are “name”, “email”, “message” and “captcha”.

    OK, I made it!

    I used the method snigger used here:
    It’s an “url-rewriting” problem.
    So, with a little bit javascript, I tricked IE6: once dom is ready, we have to replace the form action url “/contact/#wpcf7-f1-p40-o1” by “/contact?#wpcf7-f1-p40-o1” (the “?” is important).
    Here it is:

    var reg = new RegExp("/#", "g");
    var formurl = $('form.wpcf7-form[0]').attr('action').replace(reg,"?#");
    $('form.wpcf7-form[0]').attr('action', formurl);

    This little bit of code works if you have only 1 form in your page, because the selector targets the first cf7 form. If you have more than 1 cf7 form, you’ll have to make a loop (with “each” for exemple).

    I hope it will help.

    But jquery.form.js does remove fragment part (“#xxxx”) from URL before submitting form, so it shouldn’t be necessary for you to concern it yourself.

    Perhaps, I don’t know how jquery.form.js works exactly. It seems the real problem for IE6 isn’t “#XXXXXXX” but “/”. So in the end, I only help jquery.form with IE6 😉
    Anyway, this little script solves my problem 🙂
