New Contact Form 7 external package for Frontity

We’re happy to announce that Imran Sayed and Smit Patadiya have released a new package for Frontity that adds support for the popular Contact Form 7 WordPress plugin.

By default, the Contact Form 7 plugin adds a number of fields to new forms, including name, email, subject, message and send. These fields are all included in this pre-release and a few extra will be supported in the final release.

Useful resources:

Installation guide

  1. Do npm install frontity-contact-form-7 in the root of your project.
  2. Add the package name in frontity-settings.js .
"packages": [
  "frontity-contact-form-7"
  // other packages ...
]
  1. Run npx frontity dev again.

That’s it! The package doesn’t need any settings. You should be able to see the form in any page or post that contains one.
