Remove p and br tags from Contact Form 7

31st October 2019

Reading Time:

Contact Form 7 can add extra <p> and <br> tags into forms, but it’s easy enough to put a stop to.

Removing excess WPCF7 tags

The Contact Form 7 plugin makes forms in WordPress super easy, but depending on your layout you might see a few extra <p> or <br> tags thrown in there.

If CF7 does throw some stray paragraphs or line-breaks into your code you can either target them with your CSS to hide them, or throw this little snippet into your wp-config.php file.

define('WPCF7_AUTOP', false );

Make sure that this goes into your wp-config.php file – a few folks have tried to pop this into the functions file, but it won’t work as-is.
