Support » Plugin: Contact Form 7 Style » Worked for 1 fomr but not another

    I spent about 2 hours on this plugin, going back and forth, looking through settings options over and over, refreshing over and over again, but after all that time, the plugin worked on 1 form but did nothing on the secondary form. I tried selecting other formats, other designs, tried selecting them so they’d show as “active” multiple times and then refreshing, cleaning my cache, on and on and the second fomr just will not take the plugin or changes made within it no matter what. So, ultimately unless there is some bizarre step that isn’t working, it doesn’t look good to have 1 form that looks modern and 1 that does not and can’t be changed. Very discouraging. It’s a great idea for plugin that is much-needed (CF7 is still a great plugin but looks very outdated and basic) and there simply are no other styling plugins for it that seem to work reliably so back to square one trying to find another plugin.I mean it’s nice that 1 form looks current but the second form that cannot be changed kind of throws a monkey wrench into the mix.

    Update:

    I was able to get the plugin to work on two different forms on two separate site pages so that the designs would look the same, but it just took several instances of going back and forth and tweaking and resetting the two different areas of settings that control the layout and look of the form. It works, just requires patience and going back and forth several times and clearing caches and retrying a few times.

    Greetings @affordablewebsitesdenvercom,

    We made this add-on to be customizable on multiple forms. Was your form on the same page?
    Can you send us an example?

    Best Regards,

    Lethel, I found out what happened. Basically, the plugin seems to do what it sets out to do, but the UX/UI is a little wonky in that there are 2 places to set the customization of the appearance and you have to go back and forth between those two settings areas. In some cases you have to go back and forth several times, to get the designs to match with separate forms on different pages. So, if I change my review I’d probably say that it’s a needed plugin in theory, but the interface could use simplification and clarity.
