CF7 Skins Logic allows you to add Conditional Logic to Contact Form 7 forms.
With CF7 Skins Logic you can
- dynamically change the form fields displayed based on user input
- show or hide form elements depending on the values input in other form fields
- display selected form items in response to options chosen
- Show or Hide – fields
- Criteria – field, user and post info
- Value – equals, not equals, contains or changed
- Compare – numeric or text values
- Multiple logic statements – if all & if any
- Multiple fields with varying logic
CF7 Skins Logic works right within the Contact Form 7 plugin interface – it adds an extra tab where you can configure each Contact Form 7 form to show or hide fields based on user selections.
Conditional Logic for Contact Form 7
Using CF7 Skins Logic
1. Select & Add Field
2. Choose “Show or Hide” plus “All or Any”
If you have some hidden fields in your form, be careful when using this feature to make sure you do not hide required fields. Contact Form 7 tests if all fields marked as required have suitable values regardless of whether the fields have been hidden by CF7 Skins Logic.
So, if a required field is hidden & not completed by the user, Contact Form 7 will show an overall validation error but the individual field & associated validation error will be hidden. This is typically very confusing for form users.
So it is generally better to not hide any fields which are also required fields in Contact Form 7.
3. Select Criteria, choose Comparison & add Value
4. Add Additional Statements & Fields
- Requires at least Contact Form 7 Skins v1.2.1
- Each CF7 Tag needs to be within a < li > statement to be detected in CF7 Skins Logic
- You’ll get more comprehensive styling if you select one of our CF7 Skins Templates (rather than the default Contact Form 7 layout) to work together with one of our CF7 Skins Styles
- Requires the CF7 Skins Pro plugin to operate – you will need to also purchase the CF7 Skins Pro plugin to use the CF7 Skins Logic Add-on
- Conditional Logic can also be added within CF7 Skins Multi forms
