Please replace the ??? with your data!

[desc]: Hi, I have enabled the database tracking for messages sent by cforms on my site and now I would like to insert list of the messages under the comment form.

 Is this possible somehow?

Please note I would like to avoid of using the wordpress commenting integration for the "contact" page. Why…?

- if I disable WP comments for this page, I can not comment

- if I enable WP comments, the WP comments form appears under my cforms form

- I do not want to replace WP comments by cforms – I only want to use cforms on my "contact" page.

All I need is simply table with list of previous messages containing author, time and text. While all these is now stored in database, it should work somehow, but I have no idea how to do that.

 Please advice if you can.

It's in fact quite easy, here is what I suggest (it will require some general WP knowledge & PHP/SQL skills):

  1. Either create a dedicated page template for your contact page or alternatively "make some room" in your general page.php template for a conditional "feedback list"
  2. The "feedback list" is essentially a loop that shows all form submissions and fields.
  3. The loop and the MySQL statement necessary to retrieve all data from the cforms tracking tables you'll find in cforms-database.php, little tweaking will be necessary.

The "feedback list" thus consist of a SQL call, a FOR loop, and small echo statement to print the data.
