Support » Plugin: PDF Forms Filler for Contact Form 7 » Workaround for CF7 Multi-Step Forms

    Hi All,
    Just wanted to share a workaround I found for using CF7 Multi-Step Forms and this plugin.
    The problem I had, was that at the last step of the form the PDF Forms Filler didn’t see all the fields from the previous steps. CF7 Multi-Step Forms uses special tag to access the previous fields.
    So what I did was using html code to add a hidden field in the form with the value from the previous step – using the multiform tag. I then added a commented out text field in CF7 – this makes the PDF Filler settings see the field even though it is commented out and will not show on the page. The name must be the same for both.
    Here it is in the CF7 form editor:
    <input type=”hidden” name=”my-field” value=”[multiform ‘my-field-previous’]” />
    <!–
    This for the PDF filler
    [text my-field]
    –>

    Hope this helps someone else.

    It sounds like he pasted that into CF7 form editor. Actually he pasted all of this,

    <input type="hidden" name="my-field" value="[multiform 'my-field-previous']" />
    <!--
    This for the PDF filler
    [text my-field]
