Support » Plugin: Contact Form 7 » Unwanted Blacklist

  • I’m having an issue with the form, where a client is getting an error (orange border). I and other clients have been using this form with no problems at all. I was able to re-create their error by filling out the fields as they did. After some trail-and-error, I realized that it has to do with the cleint’s name: Cockburn.

    When I remove all mentions of the name, the form submits and re-directs as usual. I saw in the plugin documentation that this might have to do with the WordPress comments blacklist. My blacklist is empty, and I’m not sure how to ‘whitelist’ certain words.

    The Discussion tab of the WordPress settings allows you to set a “maximum rating”. It’s set to G by default, and I’ve changed it to X, but it’s not fixing the error. Any help would be appreciated!

    If your comment blacklist is empty, the blacklist has nothing to do with the issue.

    Thanks fort the quick response! There is definitely an issue there — I went through all the fields and the problem is for sure the “cock” in the client’s last name. Any suggestions on how to fix it? Thank you again!
