Field Text Settings
The Divi Contact Form module has some major flaws when it comes to the input field options. There are no options to show, hide, or customize the field label or placeholder text. And there is no description field like is found in other form plugins. Thankfully, our Divi Contact Form Helper plugin now solves all of these issues! We hope you enjoy these exciting features, which give you all the customization you need for the form field text!
Setting To Show/Hide Label
Choose to show or hide the field label on the frontend.
Custom Placeholder Text
By default, the placeholder text in the Divi Contact Form fields is the same as the label text, which meant to edit the placeholder text, you needed to edit the label text. This is all pretty strange, and quite poor. So we did something about it! You can now enter custom placeholder text for each field, and thankfully it can be totally different from the label text.
Setting To Show/Hide Placeholder
Without our plugin, the placeholder text is permanent and cannot be edited. But now that we can show labels separately above the fields, you may want to show the label text and hide the placeholder text. This setting gives you that option to hide the placeholder text in the field.
Field Description Text
For the first time ever, you can now have features like other popular WordPress forms and enter custom description text for each form field! Write whatever you want in the input field to help explain or describe the field.
Design Settings For Label Text
To go along with the field label text feature, we also included a new Field Label Text settings toggle in the Design tab with all the standard font and text setting used to customize the field label text.
Design Settings For Description Text
The new field description setting is amazing on its own, but we took it a step further by providing a new design settings toggle in the Design tab to customize the field description text with all the standard font and text settings.
Admin CC And BCC Email Addresses
You now have the options to add carbon copy (CC) and blind carbon copy (BCC) email addresses for the admin email! Multiple email addresses can be added, separated by a comma.
Support For Merge Tags In The Subject Line
This is significant! Now you have truly unique email subject lines by using any of the merge tags in the custom subject line! This means you can say things like “New Message From [Form Name]” or “New Email From [Name]” or “New [Entry #]” etc.
Referer URL Message Pattern Merge Tag
Now you can know which page the person used to get to your form! This is really great data to know how your call to actions are converting the visitor into taking action. Just use %%dcfh_referer_url%% to get the URL of the page visited before reaching the page with the contact form.
Custom Date And Time Format Settings
You now have complete control over the date and time formats in the date/time picker. Our new input fields allow you to enter a custom date and time format using your preferred PHP parameters. This will override and take priority over any other date format you have selected.
Weeks Start Day Setting
Some countries have a different standard day of the week that is considered the start day, so this setting allows you to choose the first day of the week in the date picker calendar.
Message Textarea Minimum Height Setting
By default, the textarea to write a message is not very tall, and this can be a small nuisance for people filling out your form. So why not solve this with a simple setting to choose to adjust the height of the message box to make it taller by default.
Checkboxes And Radio Buttons Layout Options
This new setting appears in the field options when using the Checkboxes or Radio Buttons field type. It gives you the option to choose how you want the checkboxes to display, either inline horizontally or as columns.
Checkboxes And Radio Buttons Column Settings
If you decide to show the checkboxes and radio buttons as columns, then a new setting will appear to select the number of columns.
Set a minimum or maximum number of characters in the message textarea field and/or limit symbols to only letters or numbers, or alphanumeric.
Change Attachments Custom Message
Choose to enter custom text for the message that automatically displays in the footer of any email with files added to prompt the recipient to view the attachments.
Submit Button Wait Text
Enter custom text for the submit button which will show while files are being uploaded.
New Allowed File Types
The first version of the plugin has many file type options for the admin to choose to allow for the visitor to upload to the form. We got requests for more, but there was a technical reason we couldn’t allow more. Now we have created a solution, and you can now upload a huge list of file types.
As with all of our products, every setting and feature of the plugin is well documented! Go check out the plugin documentation area for a full list of the settings, guides for all the settings, and all the other usual resources like FAQ, changelog, and roadmap.
