Divi Contact Form Helper Plugin Feature Update 1.4 by Pee Aye Creative

Divi Contact Form Helper Plugin Feature Update 1.4

I'm so happy to announce another new version of the Divi Contact Form Helper plugin version 1.4 with even more new settings and features.

Please watch the video to get all the exciting details!

New Features

HTML Anything Field

Need to break your form into sections with headings? Now you can! Need to break your form into sections with a divider line? Now you can! What about adding a paragraph, image, link, bullet list, number list, or any other HMTL? Now you can!

We have added a new feature that allows you to display pretty much anything within your form! This is like a new field type, but of course it does not submit this data, but rather it is only for the frontend visitor.

And of course, we have added design settings for everything! Style the wrapper container, heading text, paragraph text, links, images, and dividers each with a complete set of design settings!

Entries Screen Dynamic Columns

Want to display the names in the Entries screen? Or maybe another field? Now you can! You can now enter any form field ID used in the contact Form module into our new setting in Theme Options. Any form ID that you enter here will show as an admin column in the Entries page. You can enter multiple field IDs separated by commas, and each will become a column in the entries list.

In the example above, I have entered “name” because the field ID in the Contact Form module was “Name” also. Now when I have form submissions, and I check the entries, I can see the new column is added and the name of the person submitting the form!

Show Asterisks For Required Fields

One of those odd missing features in Divi is asterisk on required fields. We have added them! Now whenever you make a field required, it will show a red asterisk on the label text (if you are showing labels) or in the placeholder text.

Error/Required Fields Message Location

Some of you asked if we could move the error message to the bottom of the form. The reason was because sometimes the form is long and when a person clicks the submit button, they get confused why it is not submitting because they cannot see the message, which is at the very top. We love making things better, so we have added a new setting to choose to move the error message to the bottom!

Error Message Design Settings

You asked, we listened! We added design settings to style the error message! We like to be thorough, so we added full settings for the message container, the message text, and the error list text!

Rich Text HMTL Editor For Success Message

Until now, you could only write a tiny little success message in one input field. But now we have opened up the possibilities by changing the input field into a text editor! You can now format your success message with headings, bold, italic, etc. and even use any HTML! Pretty nice upgrade.

Message Pattern Merge Tags In Success Message

Along with the rich text editor, now you can add merge tags in the success message! Take a close look at the result below! So you can say things like “Thanks Nelson!” by using merge tags like “Thanks %%name%%!” or any of our custom merge tags. This allows you to really personalize the message, but also to display the form fields directly here!

Honeypot For Spam Protection

We have added a honeypot field to the Divi contact form! Hurray! This is an invisible form field that is used to prevent spam bots from completing the form. You can enable this setting in the Spam Protection toggle.
