Support » Plugin: Contact Form Clean and Simple » shortcode conflict

  • Resolved everthus


    Hi, amazing plugin. Thanks for your hard work.

    The shortcode [contact-form] is fairly generic and may conflict with other contact form plugins. I noticed that your plugin wasn’t showing up on my site, and I figured out it is because it was being preempted by the contact form used by Jetpack, which comes preinstalled by default on many WordPress installations. I ended up getting Clean and Simple by using the editor to change your shortcode to [clean-and-simple-contact-form]. You might want to think about changing the default shortcode as well.

    Thanks again.

    Hi everthus,

    Glad you like the plugin. I use jetpack too, it’s a great plugin.

    What you could have done instead was to deactivate jetpack’s contact form module (assuming you didn’t want to have two on your site). This can be done without having to deactivate the whole plugin.

    When I named my plugin I realised it was a generic name but I prefered it because it is intuitive for users, and also (perhaps optimistically), that users will have only one contact form plugin installed at one time.

    What I might do is to implement an alternative shortcode such as the one you have suggested. That way, users can still have an intuitive name but the alternative caters for times when a conflict could occur.

    Thanks again for your feedback, and do let me know if you have any more suggestions as I intend to keep on improving.
