With CFDB+, secure your forms and get stats, quickly and easily!

Contact Form 7 Database + is a fork of the old plugin CFDB (contact-form-7-to-database-extension). If you have this old plugin, update quickly and easily!

By simply installing the plugin, it will automatically begin to capture form submissions from (and more):

  • Contact Form 7 (CF7) plugin
  • JetPack Contact Form plugin
  • Gravity Forms plugin
  • Form Maker plugin
  • Formidable Forms (BETA)
  • Quform plugin (BETA)
  • Ninja Forms plugin (BETA)
  • Caldera Forms plugin (BETA)
  • CFormsII (BETA)
  • FormCraft Premium (BETA)
  • Enfold theme forms

Other form submissions can be saved with the addition of the [cfdb-save-form-post] shortcode 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 four administration pages in the administration area under the Contactic submenu.

  • OVERVIEW to view and export 100 last form submission data (all forms)
  • CONTACTS to view and export form submission data (by form)
  • SHORTCODES to generate shortcodes and exports
  • OPTIONS to change configuration parameters
  • WEBHOOKS Add your Slack Webhook Url to get notifyed by a message in your prefered channel, when someone submits a form. Once your webhook url save you will be able to create slack bots. (More to come…)


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 shortcode options.

Is there a tutorial?

Refer the Plugin Documentation Site (in progress)

I installed the plugin but I don’t see any of my forms listed in the administration page

Nothing will show until you have actual form submissions captured by this plugin. The plugin is not aware of your form definitions, it is only aware of form submissions.

Where can I find documentation on the plugin?

Refer the Plugin Documentation Site (in progress)

Where do I see the data?

In the admin page, “Contacts”

Can I display form data on a non-admin web page or in a post?

Yes, go to Plugin Documentation Site on shortcodes [cfdb-html], [cfdb-datatable], [cfdb-table], [cfdb-json] and [cfdb-value], etc.

What is the name of the table where the data is stored?


Note: if you changed your WordPress MySql table prefix from the default wp_ to something else, then this table will also have that prefix instead of wp_ ($wpdb->prefix)

If I uninstall the plugin, what happens to its data in the database?

By default it remains in your database in its own table.
There is an option to have the plugin delete all its data if you uninstall it that you can set if you like.
You can always deactivate the plugin without loosing data.

I have used CFDB since the original by M Simpson and have found it the best way (for me as a non-PHP MySQL expert) to access database tables for forms. The documentation is good I used for a web based noticeboard via the shortcode builder. I have used with CF7 and Jetpack Forms with no issues. The new version has good new features though now branded as Contactic which looks a little less obvious as a flexible DB management plugin name I am sure this method of inputting and retrieving data has loads of uses in addition to contact dababases. Last update looks quite some time ago so hopefully it is still supported. I did have some issues with the old CFDB and later PHP versions but no longer an issue with this plugin.
