[Plugin: Email Before Download] [contact-form-7 404 "Not Found"] Error

    Hi derrickabram,

    Can you send over the url for your download (from Download Monitor) along with:

    1. the shortcode and a link showing the download monitor shortcode working successfully
    2. the shortcode and a link showing the contact form 7 shortcode working successfully
    3. the shortcode and a link showing the email before download shortcode failing

    Download monitor working
    Shortcode was [download id=”1″]

    Contact Form 7 working
    Shortcode was [contact-form-7 id=”1287″ title=”Download Request”]

    Page failing
    Shortcode was [email-download download_id=”1″ contact_form_id=”1287″]

    I too am having this issue, and am hoping that it can be resolved fairly soon.

    I’ve also tried using the contact form ID# and Title with no avail.

    My goal is for Email Before Download to send an email with an attachment once the user has filled out the form.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    yeah for sure.

    I’d like to get our new site up and running asap but am waiting to see what the issue is with this plugin!

    I’m having the same problem:

    Download monitor working
    Shortcode was ‘[download id=”1″]’

    Contact Form 7 working
    Shortcode was ‘[contact-form-7 id=”93″ title=”Time Tools Download”]’

    Page failing
    Shortcode was ‘[email-download download_id=”1″ contact-form id=”93″]’

    Same exact issue here. Is this a bug with the most recent release of Email Before Download? Contact Form 7 and Download Monitor appear to be working fine on their own.

    I’ve narrowed it down to either being a buggy plugin or a mod_rewrite issue… Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Hi All,

    I’m not sure what would have started causing this as the plugin hasn’t been updated recently. So, the only thing I can guess is that perhaps another plugin’s update has caused some sort of conflict. We will need to check into this.

    Thank you!! That was it! It’s an issue with the new version of Contact Form 7 – just came out a few days ago. It forms the shortcode differently now and it’s breaking Email Before Download. I rolled CF7 back to version 2.4.6 and everything is working again. Phew!

    What’s the easiest way to get the older version – 2.4.6 – of Contact Forum 7 installed. I have 3.0 and am experiencing the same problems as others in this thread. I’d like to try older version and see if that works. Thanks for letting me know.

    If you can’t find it anywhere online, shoot me an email and I’ll send it to you as a zip file. Fortunately I still had it on my computer from a previous project. steve-at-exclaimweb-dot-com

    Older version still on wordpress.org
    Fixed the “Not Found” Error issue for me too.

    Hi All,

    Thanks for confirming the change in Contact Form 7. We plan to implement a fix in an emergency release, as early as tomorrow.

    Hi guys,

    The problem is with the shortcode formatting which is changed on contact form 7 version 3.0.

    You need to change the format of do_shortcode to be following:

    $contact_form = do_shortcode("[contact-form-7 id=\"$contact_form_id\" \"$title\"]");

    thanks for that,
    but can you tell me where exactly to amend the code…

    Hi All,

    I was not able to reproduce the 404 error, even after upgrading to Contact Form 7 v3.0. Nonetheless, we have released a new v3.0 version of Email Before Download with an update that will hopefully help you in this issue and also contains some other improvements.

    Please let us know if the latest Email Before Download v3.0 release resolves the problem or not.
