What happens if I don’t renew my license?

If you do not renew your license, you will:

  • Be able to use the plugin with your current version.
  • Lose access to all plugin updates.
  • Lose access to premium email support.

CF7 Skins will not be disabled, but we cannot guarantee that your old plugin version will continue to work with future versions of WordPress and CF7 Skins.

While we actively maintain our plugins to be compatible with current or recent versions of WordPress, we do not maintain compatibility with older versions for a variety of reasons. One of those reasons is that the use of older versions of WordPress can pose considerable security risks.

Form Tab – Visual Form Editor

The CF7 Skins Form tab provides a visual editor for your form. It is to help you create the form you want without knowing or having to type the form tag syntax required by Contact Form 7.

You can drag and drop, add, remove, copy, and edit fields quickly in one area.

How does CF7 Skins differ from Contact Form 7?

Contact Form 7 provides the platform to create forms. CF7 Skins provides the building blocks to quickly and easily produce beautiful, advanced forms.

Contact Form 7 is one of the most downloaded, free WordPress plugins. It allows you to create and embed forms into your WordPress powered website.  While basic forms are easy to create and implement – creating complex forms and getting them to look how you want does require a high level of skill.

CF7 Skins provides pre-built form Templates and visually aesthetic Styles that are customizable through a drag-and-drop Visual Form Editor.

In a few minutes, you can go from the basic Contact Form 7 contact form (left) to a customized CF7 Skins contact form (right) without being an experienced WordPress user, skilled at using HTML and CSS.

Your license is valid for one year from the purchase date. An active license key is needed for ongoing access to plugin updates and email support. You will need to renew your license to continue receiving updates and support (discounted renewal rates are available.) Check out which licenses and discounts are available.

After purchasing, you’ll receive a Licence Key via email (or you can visit your Account.) The key can be activated from within the plugin or via your account.

An automatic updater is included with the plugin. In order for the updater to work, you need to have a valid license key linked to the website where the plugin is installed. You can also upgrade or include add-ons before an update.

You will receive notification of plugin updates just like you’re used to with plugins available from the WordPress Plugin Repository. We provide identical update support, although the plugin will be updated from our website instead of wordpress.org.

Note: If you move your site after you activate your license, you will need to change the site location in your Account to receive update notifications. Learn more about how to check if your valid license is connected to the correct site location.

However, local URLs (such as localhost, 10.0.0.0/8, 172.16.0.0/12, 192.168.0.0/16, .dev, and .local) do not count towards the activation limits of the license. For example, http://yoursite1.com and http://yoursite2.com counts as two sites since they are hosted URLs. http://dev.yoursite.com and http://yoursite.com counts as only one site.

Can I use the Personal license on multi-site?

Yes – you will need a license for each website on a multi-site on which the plugin is used.

Can I deactivate installs?

Yes – you can get a list of your currently active installs and deactivate them anytime at your Account.

Does deactivating an install free up a space on my install limit?

What are the Fieldset and List boxes on my Form tab?

Fieldset, legend, and list items are the foundation for all CF7 Skins Templates. They are a key part to the structure and style of your form.

  • The FIELDSET item groups together related form fields.
  • The LEGEND item helps provide context to each fieldset by adding a title.
  • LIST-OL items act like a group of related LIST-LI items.
  •  LIST-LI items act like containers for a form’s field tags (Contact Form 7 Tags), such as Checkbox, Text, Date, etc.

The fieldset at the top provides a title (legend) for the entire form. The list-ol groups together list-li items that are related.

Tip: If you duplicate a LIST-OL, it will duplicate all of the LIST-LI and tags inside. This can save a huge amount of time if you have similar sections on your form.

The main advantages behind using this syntax are:

  • Customization and options for the form layout is both easier and more versatile.
  • Contact Form 7 form tags are visually less cluttered and easier to tweak.
  • Advanced and detailed CSS styling is much easier.
  • W3C compliant.
  • Accessibility such as tabbing navigation for visual user agents and speech navigation for speech-oriented user agents.

Tip: You don’t need to fully understand these items in order to use CF7 Skins. We recommend selecting a Template and following it as a guide.

What is the Form section?

The CF7 Skins Form Section

CF7 Skins adds a drag-and-drop visual form editor to the Contact Form 7 plugin interface.

Also known as the Visual Editor, Visual Form Editor, or Form tab, this is where you can edit your form’s content and layout.

The tree diagram is an interactive, visual representation of your form’s structure. When you select a Template, the form section is populated for you. Each template acts as an easy to follow guide, which you can then customize in this section.

The Fields section has all of the Contact Form 7 tags needed to create your form plus the CF7 Skins items needed for our templates and styles.

Drag and drop fields up and down the tree to re-arrange the order, minimize sections that you are not focusing on, and click or drag and drop new fields onto your form. You can choose to edit, duplicate, or delete any of the fields.
