Editing messages

You can edit messages used in various situations in the Messages tab panel. Some messages are notifications to the submitter of the status of the contact form, such as:

  • Thank you for your message. It has been sent.
  • One or more fields have an error. Please check and try again.

Other messages are notifications that there is a validation error in the input field:

  • This field is required.
  • This telephone number is invalid.

HTML tags or entities cannot be used in a message, so use plain text only. You’ll see a warning when you insert HTML into a message.

On the other hand, you can use Contact Form 7’s mail-tags in a message. This may be useful when you want to embed a user input into a message, like the following example:

  • Thanks [your-name], your message has been sent!

This [your-name] is a mail-tag that will be replaced with an actual user input through the your-name field.
