The “CFDB” plugin saves contact form submissions to your WordPress database and provides and administration page and shortcodes to view and display the data. Video tutorial on the CFDB Plugin Site
By simply installing the plugin, it will automatically begin to capture form submissions from:
Other form submissions can be saved with the addition of the [cfdb-save-form-post] short code on the target submission page.
Contact form plugins are great except for one thing…the ability to save and retrieve the form data to/from the database. If you get a lot of form submissions, then you end up sorting through a lot of email.
This plugin provides three administration pages in the administration area under the “Contact form DB” submenu.
- “Contact form DB” to view and export form submission data
- “Database Short Code” page to generate shortcodes and exports
- “Database Options” to change configuration parameters
Displaying Saved Data in Posts and Pages
Use shortcodes such as [cfdb-html], [cfdb-table], [cfdb-datatable], [cfdb-value] and [cfdb-json] to display the data on a non-admin page on your site. Use the short code builder page to set short code options.
