  7. But how do you change where the "Thank you, message sent!" message will be displayed? After they contact you, they will get this little confirmation message on the screen. Right now, it just dumps that message right underneath the field where they enter their Name. You have to be looking for it to even see it, and it gives you this impression that nothing has happened. How do you change it to display another page that says "Message sent!" or something like that. Instead of what it does now, which looks bad.

  8. Dude thanks for the upload, but please get to the point!

  9. Hello, Please help me I have a problem in contact form 7. When I type in the section of "your message". The text is in white color. And is not showing because the background is white also. So I want to change it to the black color. Please help. Thank you

  10. This video is so much longer than it needs to be jeez!

  11. Thank you so much, Jordan Alexo! Very useful tutorial and explained in details.

  12. Dreadful instructor too much waffle

  13. Doesn't send the File when Up loaded why not can you help : ( : ( things never work like they do on videos : (

  14. Hello there, what is your favorite page builder ? I utilize quite a few though my builder of choice is Oxygen.
    Thanks for your time and effort with this video footage – wonderful stuff!!

  15. very short You should have told me 24 hours

  16. Where should i choose the Akismet options? (to prevent spam? All labels or ….?)

  17. How to Restrict Stop URL's being entered into the Message section on form ?
    This is good to stop the humans entering porn links into the forms!

  18. You didn't cover the mail tab sufficiently. All those optional fields you added on the form (birth date, where do you live?) don't get sent to your mail…because you didn't cover how to configure the mail tab to receive those. What a waste of time.

  19. This was really helpful thanks

  20. Hi, can we send mail conditional on the basis of db values change ?

  21. I tried it locally it didn't word it says: " There was an error trying to send your message. Please try again later." anyone can answer me? or i should host it first?

  22. Thank you for this video, Jordan. For the longest time I couldn't understand why my contact form was constantly telling me that I had invalid mail syntax. After watching your video, I was finally able to figure it out while working within the bounds of the theme my WebDev made for me.

    Thanks again!

  23. How do you set up the "FROM" email?!

  24. how can i make a conditional logic contact form ?

  25. CF7 is one of the best form generator.
    You made a great tutorial but haven't covered the most important part.
    You have to edit the Message Body under the Mail Tab in order for the CF7 form to work.

  26. Thank you so much Alexo I had accidentally deleted contact form,

    Error: Contact form not found.

    on my blog and this video has helped me greatly. Cheers!
