Support » Plugin: Redirection for Contact Form 7 » Redirect data remains after plugin deleted

  • Resolved MisterZookeep


    This issue came up while trying to debug another plugin that sends API data after CF7 submits. While going through a “delete all plugins” debugging exercise, it was apparent that the redirect page selected for a particular CF7 form was selected by default for that form after the redirect plugin was deleted then reinstalled.

    I’ve not drilled deeper to see where CF7 redirect might store settings but it could be that they are stored along with individual CF7 form layouts, and not removed when the plugin is deleted. This is probably not what is causing our other plugin issue, but one would expect all settings for a plugin to be gone after the plugin is deleted with a promise to “delete all data.” Verifying that all conflicting plugin settings are gone might be an important step in a debugging process – if another plugin somehow misreads or trips over those settings. Or something?

    Am i missing something? How can I clean all CF7 redirect settings from database?

    Hi @misterzookeep,

    The form data is stored as meta data in wpcf7_contact_form post type. We believe it should be deleted when Contact Form 7 plugin is deleted, since this is an add-on plugin. This is our approach for now.

    What plugin are you trying to use? perhaps there is another fix.


    Hi guys. For your information, I thought I had the same problem – I removed the plugin, but redirection was still happening.

    But I think the problem was related to caching of my website. I cleared my browser cache, but the redirection continued. I cleared my wordpress site’s cache plugin and it continued. But then after a few minutes it stopped. I use amazon web service cache and I think it may have something to do with that.
