How To Enable Contact Form 7 on Specific Pages Only

Snippets by IsItWP

Are you looking for a way to enable Contact Form 7 on specific pages only? This snippet will let you enable Contact Form 7 on certain pages only to avoid loading the plugin unnecessarily.


  1. Add this code to your theme’s functions.php file or in a site-specific plugin.
  2. Edit the IDs in lines 3 and 9. Currently the IDs are 8 and 10.
add_action( 'wp_print_scripts', 'deregister_cf7_javascript', 100 );
function deregister_cf7_javascript() {
    if ( !is_page(array(8,10)) ) {
        wp_deregister_script( 'contact-form-7' );
add_action( 'wp_print_styles', 'deregister_cf7_styles', 100 );
function deregister_cf7_styles() {
    if ( !is_page(array(8,10)) ) {
        wp_deregister_style( 'contact-form-7' );

To deregister Contact Form 7’s CSS style sheet on all pages, use this snippet:

add_action( 'wp_print_styles', 'wps_deregister_styles', 100 );
function wps_deregister_styles() {
    wp_deregister_style( 'contact-form-7' );

    Do you have one for wpforms

  2. Don’t forget to issue wp_dequeue_style( ‘contact-form-7’ ) and wp_dequeue_script( ‘contact-form-7’ ) after wp_deregister_style( ‘contact-form-7’ ) and wp_deregister_script( ‘contact-form-7’ ) respectively!

    1. Is dequeueing really necessary after the script or style has been deregistered?

  3. For a few years we were using this plugin on clients sites and this was very annoying. In fact it’s the main reason we stopped using it. Anyway, glad there’s now a ‘fix’ for this issue, I’m sure many people will be thankful for it

    1. No problem glad to help,
