Contact Form 7 is an excellent WordPress plugin, and the CF7 DTX Plugin makes it even more awesome by adding dynamic content capabilities.
While default values in Contact Form 7 are static. CF7 DTX lets you create pre-populated fields based on other values. Some examples might include:
- Auto-filling a URL
- Auto-filling a Post ID, title, or slug
- Pre-populating a Product Number
- Referencing other content on the site
- Populating with post info
- Populating with user info
- Populating with custom fields
- Any value you can write a shortcode for
There are many more case-specific examples, and since you can use any shortcode, you can add any text data to the form that can be generated on the server with PHP.
WHAT DOES IT DO?
This plugin provides a new tag type for the Contact Form 7 Plugin. It allows the dynamic generation of content for a text input box via any shortcode.
For example, it comes with several built-in shortcodes that will allow the Contact Form to be populated from any $_GET PHP variable or any info from the
get_bloginfo() function, among others.
