Support » Plugin: Contact Form DB » Quotation marks in form title break CF7DB's ability to view responses

  • I made a form with quotation marks in the title, only to discover that when trying to select this form to view the responses, it “thinks” for a moment, then just goes back to the “* select a form *” option of the select. I renamed the form without quotation marks, submitted a new entry, and now there is a viewable record for that version of the form in the CF7DB. However, any old submissions are “trapped” in the records with the quotation marks, since the records are identified by the name of the form. I’m going to go into my database and manually fix those.

    I am using WP 4.4.1, CF7 4.3.1, and CF7DB 2.9.13 .

    Quotes does work for me in form names. I wonder if there is some issue with character encoding or mixing straight and curly quotes in the theme.

    I suggest going into the DB and if your form’s name was “My form’s old name” then execute a query like:

    update wp_cf7dbplugin_submits
    set form_name = 'My form new name'
    where form_name = 'My form\'s old name'

    Notice you have to put a backslash in front of the quote in the form name

    I did run some SQL already to fix it all, so I’m alright there.
    I wrote the theme myself; I just use <?php the_content(); ?> to output the post/page content.

    I had the same issue with quotes. I just changed my form names to remove the quotes instead of resolving the root issue.

    Arcade Basic (theme by c.bavota off of WP site)
    WP 4.4.1
    CF7 4.2
    CFDB 2.9.11

    I’m not looking for the developer’s time (since this isn’t my thread), but I did want to pop on this thread to confirm the “glitch” on another setup.
