Contact Form 7 Select Box Editor Button


Ever wanted to use one contact form for all your contacts? Yet be able to link to a specific contact?
And without modifying the Contact Form 7 extension?

This little extension guides you to set up Contact Form 7, enter the contacts there, and then adds an editor button by which you can link a specific contact form.


  • Email adresses are invisible to website visitors (no spam)
  • Adds Editor Button to the admin area where links to a contact form can be added or modified
  • Contact form links can by styled by CSS
  • Translation to German


  • Contact Form 7 (v3.3 or later):


  • Currently, only one form can be used (selectable at the settings page)
  • The URL could be detected (find all articles containing a contact form, and propose them in a select box)
  • When clicking on a link that has the form on the same page, should it scroll to the form? Currently, it only changes the selected value.

These are limitations that I may (one day, if/when I come to it) adress in future.
So if you’re a developer and want to adress them yourself,
go ahead and I will be happy to support you!


  • Form in action
  • Editor Button
  • Parameters
  • Popup Window to choose Contact
  • The Email-Adresses are in the Contact Form 7 Tag


  1. Install Contact Form 7 first
  2. Create a form containing a select tag:

    [select* recipient id:recipient «John Doe|» «Max Mustermann|»]

  3. Set Mail option «To:» to [recipient]

  4. Install and Activate this plugin
  5. Test it: Add this contact form to a page or post, and call it with #Max+Mustermann at the end. «Max Mustermann» should be pre-selected now.
  6. Configure the parameters:
    • The URL where the contact form resides (e.g. /contact/)
    • An optional prefix to the title attribute that will get created.
