Track which page a user was on when they filled out the form

If you have a contact form in the footer of every page of your website, you might want to know which page someone was on when they filled it out so you could send them a tailored response.

To do this with CF7:

1. Install and activate this plugin:

2. Add [dynamichidden page-url “CF7_URL”] to your form.

Redirect to another URL after submission

By default, Contact Form 7 redirects to the same URL as the form’s URL after submission. You can, however, make it redirect to another URL, such as a “thank you” page, after submission.

The simplest way is utilizing Contact Form 7’s custom DOM event to run JavaScript. The following is an example of script that redirects you to another URL when the wpcf7mailsent event occurs:

document.addEventListener( 'wpcf7mailsent', function( event ) {
location = '';
}, false );
  1. Embed this snippet into your theme’s template file.
  2. Replace the in the code to the URL you want to redirect to.
  3. After the code has been added, run a Full Publish to your live environment.
