    I wonder if it is possible to transfer the data that the user filled, i.e. name, email etc. into a databade?
    I use the contact form for event registration and I get users' information to my email but I want it also in a database or excel file and not to do it manually.

    I'm the official answerer for this, I think, as it comes up every week. The answer is, no, it's only for email. It's a very simple application, and highly effective.

    I believe CFormsII has some of that functionality, but it's been awhile since I've used it.

    On another subject, I did read something where a guy was going to take a stab at multipage forms for Contact Form 7. He's in for a massive amount of work, but it will be fascinating to see if he pulls it off.

    I'm pleased to say that YES it is possible to have data submitted from a Contact Form 7 form stored into a database. You have also use Contact Form 7 to create posts with the submitted information!

    There is a plugin to store the data in a database: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/contact-form-7-to-database-extension/

    It is also reasonably easy to write the code to do this. Check out some of my other posts or search for 'wpcf7_before_send_mail'.

    I'm glad to hear that... I had hoped that some coders would take that up. This could be very useful.

    I hope the developers are ready for the onslaught of questions that Takayuki gets! Maybe he'll get a little break. :)
