Close/Open Popup and Create Cookie After Contact Form 7 Submission

Note: Popup Maker version 1.9 introduces the Form Submission trigger and cookie. Recommended good practice is to use the new trigger and cookie together when using a Popup Maker form or integration-supported WordPress form plugin inside a popup.

See:  Popup Maker Integration with WordPress Form Builder Plugins

Trigger: Form Submission

Popup Maker integrates directly with the Contact Form 7 (CF7) plugin to allow plugin users to set a browser cookie on form submit. The cookie prevents a popup that contains the form from displaying again after the form is successfully submitted.

Follow these steps to set a Popup Maker 'Contact Form 7 Success' cookie:

  1. Within the Popup Editor, scroll to the Popup Settings box; 
  2. Select the 'Triggers' option tab; 
  3. Select the 'Triggers & Cookies' option category; 
  4. Select the button labeled 'Add New Cookie'.

The option settings box labeled  'When should your cookie be created?' will open. Select the drop-down menu options to view the cookie options. Select the 'Contact Form 7 Success' option and then select the 'Add' button to set the option. Follow the remaining prompts within the option settings box to either add or update the cookie option setting.

The example videos in this section demonstrate the link between a trigger and a Contact Form 7 Success cookie.

Close a Popup on Form Submit

Popup Maker Actions Following Form Submit Success

The Contact Form 7 plugin allows users to set and display a success message after form submit success. The success message is set and managed within the form plugin itself, not Popup Maker.

Popup Maker adds 'Close Popup' and 'Open Popup' options on the Contact Form 7 'Popup Settings' option tab. These options allows plugin users 2 ways to display a confirmation message after form submit success. See the related article link below for details.
