[resolved] [Plugin: Contact Form 7] With Multiple Forms, Messages and Additional Settings are not working (3 posts)

    I would like to report a possible bug when you use Contact Form 7 with multiple forms.

    With multiple forms created, when I change the messages and the additional settings, they do not save under the right form. Instead, the form uses everything from the first form.

    For example, I have changed the messages and additional settings for my second form. When a user submits the second form, the additional settings code from the first form is triggered. Whereas, the additional settings code for the second form did not trigger.

    This will also happen if you create more than two forms.

    Is there a possible solution to this?

    I tested this on TWO websites and both websites are showing different results.

    In my first website, I am encountering the issue described above. However, in my second website, I am not encountering this.

    I don't know where to start to diagnose this issue.

    Any suggestions?

    This was not a bug, but a mere user misconfiguration.

    In the shortcode, the number determines the messages + settings that the form will use and the word between the quotes " " will determine the form content.

    Without realizing this, I had copied the shortcode and ONLY changed the title and not the number.

    For example:

    [contact-form 1 "form 1"]
    [contact-form 1 "form 2"]
    [contact-form 1 "form 3"]

    After changing it to the proper number, everything is working fine now.

    [contact-form 1 "form 1"]
    [contact-form 2 "form 2"]
    [contact-form 3 "form 3"]
