Contact Form 7: Terms of Service

I had a brilliant idea for a plugin: one that would allow you to add Terms of Service check box to Contact Form 7 fast, easy, and without any hassle. You know the kind, if you don’t check it – you can’t do something, in this case, send a message through the form. Little did I know there already is a tag doing exactly that.

Acceptance

Acceptance

That tag is called acceptance, and it produces acceptance checkbox. That checkbox will automagically, without you having to do anything special disable the Submit button of your form until it’s checked.

Contact Form 7: How to connect two forms

Let’s assume you have a client that wants a two-step sign-up form (each step is a separate form, and each form sends it’s own email). He wants the visitor to enter his basic information (name, email, phone) in step one, and all the other less important information like sex and address in step two “but with a twist” step two should also contain basic information from step one. If you’re looking for a solution for this particular problem, you found it.

Remove automatic p paragraph in WordPress

Most of us have encountered this annoying behavior, no doubt about that. For those of you who are not familiar with it, WordPress automatically adds p elements around, for example, your shortcode for inserting videos. And this more often then not adds unwanted white spaces and breaks your layout. Even though there are more then a couple of ways to fix it, the following is my new favorite one.

Paragraph settings

Paragraph settings

There were plugins that solved this issue before. However, they “solved” it site-wide, meaning, you removed your p tags from everywhere. And just maybe, you don’t need that; maybe you’ve solved it some other way on the rest of the site, and if you do this, you’ll have extra work to do (check the rest of the site, see if everything is OK, and if it’s not adjust).

WordPress allow guest users to write a post

I’ve been long searching for something that makes this possible, and while you certainly had options (four or five plugins exist for quite some time now), none of them worked as well as I hoped, plus, they always missed a couple of important features, at least for me. Well, that search has come to an end, meet Post From Site plugin.

Post From Site

Post From Site

In a nutshell, what you can accomplish with this plugin is to allow users to publish posts without having to register with all the standard options like default category, publish to a post or to a page and so on, decide whether you want to bring a form in a popup, or have it embed in your page. To top it all off, you can use the plugin through a widget, with a short code or with PHP code written directly to your template.
