we are very interested in your plugIn.

We want use it for one of our clients and have a question, if there are sites that are automatic created by the plugin. Or if there is the possibility to display data over an short code, like in other “Contact Form Safe to DB” plugins.

The background is the following: We already made bad experience with an other plugin (not yours and not for data saving) that creates sites in background. Now we cannot remove that sites anymore, even while uninstalling the plugin. Unfortunately, the links are already indexed by search engines – so we are still searching for an possible solution to delete the unneeded URLs of the items and the categories created by the plugin :(

If this plugin now automatically creates sites (post, pages, categories ore something else) in background and posts some sensitive data from the input of the forms, we have a wort case scenario. Is there a possibility to avoid creating such sites?

Or is there maybe the possibility to “crypt” the stored data or to store it on a DB on an other server?

Best regards and thanks in advance!

if there are sites that are automatic created by the plugin

No sites are created.

Or did you mean “posts”? We’re storing entries in a private post type that is not accessible on the front-end. It is marked “private” similar to post revisions and other WordPress meta data that is not exposed to public.

Hey, I’m looking at buying this plugin. My worry is that it will only store items from the original “comment section” from Contact form section; and it won’t store the additional custom sections that I added to it. I tried a similar plugin that was free. It only store the original comment section—rendering it pretty much useless.

Please send me an email to and I’ll be happy to provide you with the plugin to check if it works with your setup.

Question about product:

In contact form 7 you can create check boxes. Will this save that data as individual fields when exported to excel or will it dump it all into one field when exporting? I need them separated out so I can sort by which options were checked by my users.

Hi! All fields have their own column in the CSV export. There is a column for the complete email message.

p.s. Sorry for the late reply.


Since the last update of the CF7 plugin the WPCF7_Shortcode class is marked as deprecated, see:

This leads to a PHP notice when a user submits a form. To resolve this, you need to change line 182 in the file /cf7-storage.php to ”$form_fields = $cf7->scan_form_tags();”

Thank you!

Thank you for reporting this! I’ll implement the suggested fix as soon as possible.

hi, support rtl?

Hi! Unfortunately, we haven’t yet added support for RTL. I’m happy to send you a copy of the plugin if you want to add that (please email

Great plugin! I love it!

I just have a few questions.

1. There a way to display the submission information in a table on the front end of the website? Not the end of the world if there isn’t, just wondering if I missed this.

2. Is there a way to only log submission information for one form in Contact Form 7? If not is there a way to exclude other forms from logging?

Thanks Matthew

Hi Matthew!

1. The plugin is mostly used by businesses and individuals who want to keep all the form submissions private and protected from the public which is why we haven’t added this feature. However, all submissions are stored in post meta of a custom post type so it should be relatively simple to build a custom solutions for your use-case.

2. Unfortunately, it isn’t possible to disable submission capture at the moment. I’ve added this to our list of to-dos and we’ll add a filter in the next release.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Ok, thanks for the quick answer. Neither of these are a must for me, I was more just wondering if the plugin had these features. Thanks for the help

hi there my clients site is showing

Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/easyloanz/public_html/wp-content/plugins/cf7-storage/cf7-storage.php on line 965

could you please help me to fix in need to export data via excel please? Thank you Kind regards mel


That error appears to be related to attachments during the export. Are you seeing that on the front-end of the site? It can be visible only when running the actual export.

Secondly, this is only a warning and should run the export just fine. Could you please email the resulting CSV file to

Secondly, are running the latest version 1.5.4 of the plugin?

Hi does the plugin retrieve entries prior the plugin installation?

Hi! Unfortunately, it can’t since that data wasn’t stored anywhere.

Want to know if your plugin can display data from a PayPal addon for Contact Form 7 ( Thank you.

Hi! Please send me an email to and I’ll send you a copy of Storage for CF7 to try it out.

Plugin sent. Please let me know if it works with the plugin you mentioned.

HI, one question. The Storage for Contact Form 7 can make that: 1) Give us one link for every area contact form? For example, we are 2 filter in our contact form. We need one link for one filter and another link for another filter. This because we want that one user see one filter about contact form, and another user another link with storaged contact. Can you help me? We can buy same addons or hourly ssupport for this. thanks

Hi! I’m not sure I totally understand what you mean.

one link for every area contact form

Can you please provide a screenshot of this?

We need one link for one filter and another link for another filter

What are these filters?

Thank you!

Thanks for the email with the screenshot. Could you create two forms instead of using that drop-down selector instead? That way you can filter submissions by the form they were submitted to:

Filter contact form 7 submissions by form

All the show/hide selector functionality is related to the actual form display and isn’t really related to the storage functionality, so I’m not sure I’m able to help with that.

Is this plugin still working with the latest wordpress version?

Sure, it works fine and has been tested even with the latest development version of WordPress. Are experiencing any issues?

Hello there,

I think my questions were answered through the comments. I am very interested in buying your product, but I want to make sure every field is saved since I have such a complicated form. You can see the form here with conditional logic. Will your product work with this form??


Yes, every field is saved and exported in its own column and should work with any amount of input data.

Will storage for contact form 7 work if wordpress is not installed in my root directory? For example, if wordpress is installed in

Yes, it should work just fine.
