Understanding API integration

I will show you the process to send (GET or POST) form data to remote API’s (with API integration) such as Active CampaignZapierSockets and other remote API’s using POST/GET.  For this, you just require Contact Form 7 version 4.2.0 or later. It is supporting XML and JSON too.

Install the required plugin from here

You will have to install plugin Contact form 7 TO API. It is available on the WordPress plugin section. “Contact form 7 TO API” is an open source software.

Contact form 7 TO API can be installed in two ways

  1. Searching for “Contact form 7 TO API” via the “Plugins > Add New” screen in your WordPress dashboard,
  2. or by using the following steps:
    • You can Download the plugin from the repository of  WordPress.org.
    • then Upload this Contact form 7 TO API ZIP file via “Plugins” > Add New > Upload .
  3.  Now Activate. ( Must be easy for you 🙂 )
  4.  Now go to the settings area and configure the plugin, as desired.

USAGE

  1. Chose specific form which you want to use with API integrations
    Simple API integration
  2. Type the API url
  3. Select the method (POST/GET)Post Contact Form 7 data to any API with Simple API integration
  4. Now map your form fields (then save to check them)
  5. Now Go back to your page where you are showing your contact form.
