  • Resolved xmpi


    Here comes a temporary solution on hiding input fields of Contact Form 7 plugin after input data is sent.
    You may see some replies on this subject on, but the hacks mentioned are not working for version 2.2.1 of this plugin.

    So, if you want to hide all input fields including submit button after data sent success:
    1) Go to “includes” folder of plugin and edit the “classes.php” file.
    Add the following line right after $class .= ‘ wpcf7-mail-sent-ok’;
    echo “<style type=\”text/css\”>.showhide {display: none;}</style>”;

    2) In the admin panel of contact form 7 plugin, add the following line in the beginning of the forms description: <div class=”showhide”>
    Then close this tag in the end of the forms description: </div>.
    Just for example:

    <div class=”showhide”>
    <p>Your name
    [text* your-name] </p>
    <p>[submit “Submit”]</p>

  • Thanks, I was looking for exactly this solution. Would love to be able to do it without a hack!

    Hi, I tried your hack with no success, but actually figured out a way to do it without any hacks.

    Do the same thing you did in your step #2 – add a div wrapping the entire contact form in the admin panel. I used

    <div id="hideform">
    ... contact form fields here ...

    Then at the bottom of the admin page under “Additional Settings” put the following:

    on_sent_ok: "document.getElementById('hideform').style.display = 'none';"

    Obviously if you named your div with a different ID other than “hideform” then put the ID you chose. That should be it!

    Thanks a lot, chembro303! It works like a charm!

    I would like to hide the form after submission for the logged in user forever. So he can only submit the form once.
    Any idea?

    Great work chembro303. Thanks. It works, and it isn’t a hack!

    @calutateo: That’s most likely not something you can do with this contact form. I would imagine you’d have to save that info to the user’s account somehow.
