Why am I unable to see the file which is attached to the letter?

Because the ability to save and manage attachments is available only in the PRO version of the plugin.

How can I download a file which is attached to the letter (using Contact Form to DB Pro)?

Two ways:

  1. 1. You can click on the sender’s name to slide down the message’s content, point to the file name and click on the “Download” link that appears.
  2. 2. Also you can mark the checkbox near the sender’s name, chose “Download attachments” from the dropdown menu at the top or at the bottom of the list of messages and click “Apply” button.

Why are the files with “.tiff” extension not displayed in the browser (using Contact Form to DB Pro)?

Browsers do not display images with “.tiff” extension.
To view these images the plugin converts “.tiff” to “.jpeg” into small thumbnails. But it does not work on all servers.

In what formats can the messages be saved?

You can save messages in “csv”, “xml” and “eml” formats.

Why does Contact Form to DB pugin not work without Contact Form plugin?

This plugin was created especially as an extension for Contact Form plugin.
It can receive messages ONLY from Contact Form plugin.
In case you used Contact Form plugin with Contact Form to DB plugin arlier and decide to delete or deactivate it, Contact Form to DB plugin will work as an archive for your old messages.

How can I remove the column “Send counter” from the list of messages?

Click on “Screen Options” button in the right top corner on manager page and deselect the item “Send counter”.

I have some problems with the plugin’s work. What Information should I provide to receive proper support?

    I need to populate the subject of the email with a value passed on as a query variable. The previous page has a link that will be pointing to the page that has the form. Depending on the selection made in the previous page I want the subject to populate with that value. Can the subject on this form be autopopulated with a value that comes from the previous page ?

    • Alina said:

      Dear Aleks,

      Thank you for contacting us.

      The case is, your issue primarily concerns Contact Form Pro plugin rather than Contact Form to DB Pro, as it is Contact Form Pro that is responsible for forming the subject. Only then this data gets to Contact Form to DB Pro. Either way, we are sorry to inform you that the functionality you’ve described is not available. However, you can request a paid customization if you want and provide all the necessary details on our support forum http://support.bestwebsoft.com/.

      Regards

    I purchased this plugin and it does not work. I’ve made no modifications, and can’t get the license to authenticate. I’m getting frustrated with this to be honest.

    • Anna said:

      Hi David,

      What do you mean here “it does not work”? How did you come to such a conclusion? Please provide a screenshot of the error and describe the circumstances when it occurs.

      Sincerely

    The CF to DB (free version) shows only a limited number of characters (message). Is this different (is the whole text visible) in the pro-version?
    I Have already the contact-form pro and have the intention to buy the pro version also.

    Hope to hear more,

    • Tom said:

      I figured it out already. You have to click on the name (from) and then it shows the whole text.
