Support » Plugin: Contact Form 7 » Remove auto-check from newsletter sign up box

  • Hello,
    I’m working on GDPR compliance for my site, and have a couple of related questions:

    1. How can I change the checkbox to sign up to the (Mailchimp) newsletter, so it’s not ticked by default? I can’t seem to control where this setting is controlled. The checkbox also appears on the basket page.
    The text accompanying the checkbox seems to perhaps be pulled from a central source for these two pages, as if I remove my custom text after [mc4wp_checkbox] on the contact form, it replaces it with the same text as seen on the checkout page. I don’t know where this default text comes from. I assume the default ticked checkbox belongs to this somewhere? Could it be from MailChimp, or MailChimp for Woocommerce? I can’t find it in the settings for these though.
    I can’t find where or how I added the newsletter sign up box and sign up text to the basket page. Are you able to help please?

    2. The spacing looks very odd by the tick boxes. How can I edit the appearance please?

    3. I added an acceptance checkbox regarding storing information and you can’t submit the message without ticking this. However, if you don’t tick it, there’s no notification to say you’ve missed this. Is it possible to add this? Only that box is required, the newsletter tick box can be left blank.

    Thanks so much!

  • Hello
    Update on this: Query 1 has been resolved, it was part of the MailChimp for WordPress setup for Contact Form 7.
    But I’d love to hear from you on points 2 and 3, as this seems to relate to Contact Form 7.
    Thank you!

    2. Try to put

    .wpcf7 input {
        width: 20px;
    }
    span.wpcf7-list-item {
        display: inline-block;
        margin: 0;
    }

    or

    .wpcf7 input {
        width: 20px !important;
    }
    span.wpcf7-list-item {
        display: inline-block;
        margin: 0 !important;
    }

    in style.css. Preferably in the styles.css of your child theme or in any option of the theme for extra CSS to avoid loss of style after a future update of wp/plugin. That should improve a lot.

    Maybe for 3. this explanation about “Acceptance as validation” is what you’re looking for?

    I hope this helps!?

    Regards,
    Monique
