Contact Form 7 AJAX stops working when BP enabled

  • Profile photo of corrocks


    The AJAX of my Contact Form 7 forms (version 3.4.2) stopped functioning after I upgraded to the latest Buddypress. The forms still submit, but the page reloads instead of using AJAX. Disabling Buddypress solves the problem. I disabled all plugins except CF7 and tested then individually with every other plugin, and the conflict is only happening with Buddypress.

    Any advice on how to get AJAX back online?

  • So to recreate this: I install CF7, make a basic form, and when I post with that form, it should use AJAX? And when BP is active, it POSTs the form instead of AJAX, etc?
