How do I add additional fields to the Contact Information widget?

Adding additional fields to the Contact Information widget is as simple as adding a WordPress filter.

Here is an example:

add_filter( 'wpcw_widget_contact_custom_fields', function ( $fields, $instance ) {

  $fields['cellphone'] = [
    'order'       => 2,
    'label'       => __( 'Cellphone:', 'YOURTEXTDOMAIN' ),
    'type'        => 'text',
    'description' => __( 'A cellphone number that website visitors can call if they have questions.', 'YOURTEXTDOMAIN' ),

  return $fields;

}, 10, 2 );
How do I add additional fields to the Media Profiles widget?

The Media Profiles widget requires a different set of options but follows the same principle as above.

Here is an example:

add_filter( 'wpcw_widget_social_custom_fields', function ( $fields, $instance ) {

  $fields['scribd'] = [
    'icon'      => 'scribd', // See font-awesome icon slug
    'label'     => __( 'Scribd', 'YOURTEXTDOMAIN' ),
    'default'   => '',
    'select'    => 'username',
    'sanitizer' => 'esc_url_raw',
    'escaper'   => 'esc_url',
    'social'    => true,
    'target'    => '_blank',

  return $fields;

}, 10, 2 );

If using Font Awesome v5, ‘solid’ & ‘regular’ icons require a ‘prefix’ value when defining the custom icon. If excluded, the default prefix added to icons is ‘fab’, for the Font Awesome brand icons. If you are adding an icon that is not a brand icon, you will need to add a prefix. For example, if you wanted to add a graduation cap icon you would need to add 'prefix' => 'fas' to the attributes array.

Here is an example of adding a ‘fas’ (Solid) icon to the profiles.

add_filter( 'wpcw_widget_social_custom_fields', function ( $fields, $instance ) {

  $fields['lattes'] = [
    'icon'      => 'graduation-cap', // See font-awesome icon slug
    'prefix'    => 'fas', // See font-awesome icon prefix
    'label'     => __( 'Service Name', 'YOURTEXTDOMAIN' ),
    'default'   => '',
    'select'    => 'username',
    'sanitizer' => 'esc_url_raw',
    'escaper'   => 'esc_url',
    'social'    => true,
    'target'    => '_blank',

  return $fields;

}, 10, 2 );
Where are the Font Awesome files served from?

Out of the box the Font Awesome files are bundled in Contact Widgets and served locally. However, we have included a filter to allow Font Awesome files to be loaded from MaxCDN.

To force the plugin to load the files from MaxCDN you can return a true value in the filter wpcw_social_icons_use_cdn.

add_filter( 'wpcw_social_icons_use_cdn', '__return_true' );

No settings. No errors. Doesn’t work for me. Godaddy Support no help.

I installed this plugin as part of a very very basic 2 page wordpress site.

I installed WordPress through Godaddy C-panel app install and picked one of the 7 default themes. This plugin came with it. I configured the site and then tested the contact form. It goes nowhere. I googled and googled and checked and re-checked settings. Could not find any settings for this plugin. No documentation how to troubleshoot this. I downloaded a plugin called check email to test whether the site could send e-mail. It passed. I tried filling in 3 different e-mail accounts. 2 Office365 and 1 gmail. It showed up nowhere. I installed a mail test plugin. It was able to send me a test. The form still doesn’t work. I tried installing a 3rd party smtp plugin. I twas able to send me a test. Contact form still doesn’t work.

Have been on 90 minute chat session with godaddy support. Form still doesn’t work. They claim that they ran a script test and it works. The contact form still doesn’t work. They seem to have no ideas about how to troubleshoot it.

My frsutration is the lack of functioning and the lack of any useful info for troubleshooting or settings or anything. I can see if I was doing massive customizing but I’m not. I simply installed WordPress using Godaddy isntallers, picked one of the default themes and ended up with this contact form that is of no use to me.

Also, this whole experience has devalued my opinion of Godaddy support.

This is really cool plugin
