All field names should be unique
Even though your fields might never show up at the same time, it is still important to realize that WPCF7CF will not remove the fields, it merely hides them. So all fields will be submitted when the form is sent. Because of this no two fields can have the same name.
Incorrect form (2 input elements having the same name “a”):
[group group-1][select a "1" "2" "3"][/group] [group group-2][select a "1" "2" "3"][/group]
Correct form (all groups and fields have unique names):
[group group-1][select a "1" "2" "3"][/group] [group group-2][select b "1" "2" "3"][/group]
All my groups show up all the time and never get hidden.
Before reaching out to the support forum try to determine which plugin or theme is causing the problem, by gradually disabling plugins and changing theme.
Reason #2: wp_footer() isn’t loaded
Check if your theme is calling the
wp_footer() function. Typically this function will be called in your theme’s footer.php file.
<?php wp_footer(); ?>
How do i show fields based on multiple conditions? (AND, OR, NAND, NOR)
if a=1 AND b=2 then, show [group x]
You will need to create nested groups for the number of conditions, so your form might look like this:
[select a "1" "2" "3"] [select b "1" "2" "3"] [group x-1][group x-2]TADA![/group][/group]
and use these conditions
if [a] equals "1" then show [x-1] if [b] equals "2" then show [x-2]
if a=1 OR b=2 then, show [group x]
This is more straightforward, as OR conditions are assumed. Giving this form:
[select a "1" "2" "3"] [select b "1" "2" "3"] [group x]TADA![/group]
You can simply use these conditions:
if [a] equals "1" then show [x] if [b] equals "2" then show [x]
if a=1 NAND b=2 then, show [group x]
Same form as OR, but just use “not equals” instead of “equals”:
if [a] not equals "1" then show [x] if [b] not equals "2" then show [x]
if a=1 NOR b=2 then, show [group x]
Same form as AND, but just use “not equals” instead of “equals”:
if [a] not equals "1" then show [x-1] if [b] not equals "2" then show [x-2]

- Removed some debug code
- Updated readme file
- Added import feature
- Added support for nested groups in email

- Tested on WP 4.7.1

(https://wordpress.org/support/topic/activation-issue-5/ and https://wordpress.org/support/topic/http-500-unable-to-handle-request-error-after-update/)

- Removed anonymous functions from code, so the plugin also works for PHP versions older than 5.3.
- Suppress errors generated if user uses invalid HTML markup in their form code. These errors could prevent form success message from appearing.
- Added support for required conditional fields inside hidden groups. A big thank you to @stevish for implementing this.

- Added @stevish as a contributer to the project 🙂

- If extra attributes are added to the group shortcode, this will no longer break functionality (even though no attributes are supported)
- Make code work with select element that allows multiple options.
Fixed bug with exclusive checkboxes (https://wordpress.org/support/topic/groups-not-showing)
