    How soon should we expect to (or will we) see all of the Avada Demos CF7 forms updated to add checkboxes/info label (so they have the same general feel as the internal Avada form with the Theme Options>>Contact Form>> Display Data Privacy Confirmation Box and label?

    It’s still confusing to me (after close to 2 years) that the contact form in the Avada contact page template is stand alone, BUT seems to exactly follow the CF7 plugin format, AND the CF7 plugin is required to install any of the demos. Maybe it’s just me, but seems disconnected…

    revans0636, the forum is not a way to contact ThemeFusion. If you want to contact us directly about something then do so via the contact form. I know that you are aware that this is possible due to the fact you have already sent us multiple emails. What is the purpose of posting this on a community forum exactly? I have already asked this in another thread and yet here we are again.

    If you want flexible forms you use CF7. If you want a simple contact page you use the contact page template. There is no disconnect there. Is installing a free plugin with its own documentation so bad? Regarding the checkboxes, there is a built in method for adding that to CF7 if you want. Depending on the form set-up that is not necessary anyway, so is unlikely to be added by default. However if you deem it necessary then there is nothing stopping you from adding it.

    If you want to request a new feature then you can submit that via the contact form like is intended (there is even a specific drop-down for it) https://theme-fusion.com/contact-us/

    @Michael C – TBH I was really looking for other Avada user input from the COMMUNITY on this question, and wondering if my peers are seeing it as I do. You (clarification, theme-fusion so I don’t make this appear as a personal attack) adjusted the internal simple contact form to add privacy option toggles for displaying notification in the form under the heading of GDPR tools. The timing for the change indicates it’s apparently as a response to the new requirements for your EU users. but you (again, theme-fusion) did not make any adjustments in the Avada provided demo themes… that’s the “disconnect” I mentioned, (and it’s simply my opinion). Maybe just a different department (Developers and Designers?)

    Yep, you did ask about my purpose in another thread as to some agenda I might have (#444275) and I did respond via email to support@theme-fusion.com, to Michael B, and ask him to forward my response to you.

    Multiple emails? That borders on funny – responding to a personal slap from you in a forum thread (that post referenced above), a properly formatted request for GDPR disclosure about personal data that theme-fusion maintains in the dataset which apparently was incomplete. (FWIW, there’s a miss-match in total number of registered purchase codes displayed in your site under my account, and the total number of purchase codes on my themeforest.com page for your theme.) Or are you referencing the 2-3 suggestions I’ve made the past YEAR sent to support@themefusion.com. Humm, IIRC the last “suggestion” was for a bug report link to help users report possible theme issues that were past the 6-month support window (which is now included in the contact form, so thank you kindly for that). Suppose that could be considered “multiple” emails, but I’m unsure what threshold you set with multiple… possibly you’re confusing me for another registered Avada user that’s blown up your email system?

    I’m certainly unclear about what you’re suggesting should be submitted as a new theme feature. Contact Forms as a separate item on incremental demo imports? Humm, did that during the GitHub public beta testing, when the incremental feature was added. (IIRC was told by you or Marcus that the stand alone contact form incremental option was in the works.) Now we’re up to v5.5, and it’s still not there. Maybe I just have a different perspective regarding what a complete demo should include, or expected an author provided demo to showcase what could be done using the theme options… guess not? (Not sarcasm, just observation).

    So pointed question – is this the Community Forum for Avada fanboys? Do our posts require filtering to be politically correct to avoid your perception of bashing the theme (and apparently offending a Senior Developer)? Should I just restrict my questions to Support Tickets, since I still have +/- 4 months of support remaining on the last license purchased, or will you respond in a professional manner to your customers) posts? Or just deflect if as in this response if you’re personally offended? Note: IMO you could have just responded as the Avada Senior Developer, if you chose to respond at all, that no plans were in the works to update any of the existing demo contact forms, but it would be considered for future demos. OTOH, your immediate response, and the tone of the response, makes me wonder if your perception of the post is I’m borderline violating the “otherwise objectionable” section of Rule#6 of your published TOS.

    Or leave it, and see if anyone else considers this topic helpful…

    @revans0636

    Multiple emails means multiple emails (more than one). Clearly you know how to contact us, yet in this case decided to post in a community forum. You say you wanted community feedback, yet your question is clearly aimed toward ThemeFusion. Would a community member be able to answer this?

    How soon should we expect to (or will we) see all of the Avada Demos CF7 forms updated to add checkboxes/info label (so they have the same general feel as the internal Avada form with the Theme Options>>Contact Form>> Display Data Privacy Confirmation Box and label?

    Hence why I asked on the purpose for posting this in a community forum where it is a question towards ThemeFusion and not something that is going to end up in any worthwhile community discussion.

    My response and tone of response is down to a couple things:
    1. You are choosing to post in a community forum when really your question is just for ThemeFusion.
    2. Its not the first time you have done this.

    Regarding the actual query of the ticket with form consents. That is because we do not deem that necessary. Others may, which is why we provide the option in the theme. We are a theme developer, we provide the tools – which we have. The demos already come with full content and working forms.

    Yes, you may have been told in beta about an upcoming feature with contact forms. That is because you were a member of a closed beta. You have early access to the information and plans for the future – not all of which are confirmed and therefore ready for public release. Which is another reason why posting such things in a community forum is not appreciated. Especially when you already have a direct line to our staff if you want to ask a question or lodge a complaint.

    Complaints are expected and often lead to positive changes (as with the bug reporting feature). Nobody is saying that nothing negative can be posted on the forum. What is not positive is forum threads where no worthwhile discussion will take place – which is what I perceived this and the other thread to be about. Both of these I perceived to be complaints against ThemeFusion and discontent about the new company site rather than real complaints or questions.

    Note, this is me responding as an individual. I am not a spokesperson for ThemeFusion and do not pretend to be, as I am sure you can tell from my responses.

    Thanks

    @Michael C – On further reflection, I’ll grant that you are correct that my frustration with the current theme-fusion.com website is at a very high level given the amount of time its been in the works. Call it my expectations exceeding the delivered product, and that frustration has been bleeding over here as have yours towards me. Our exchanges in the Community Forum are not serving the best interests of the Avada Community… they will stop.

    Note (FWIW) I absolutely DID NOT understand that your responses were made as an individual, and not a spokesperson for ThemeFusion.

    Peace Out
