WordPress Contact Form 7 and SMTP Gmail API Integration – Definitive Guide and Complete training for Freelancers and WordPress Developers.

In this Task # 19 (Part 2 of Task # 18), we installed and configured SMTP plugin to configure Gmail API with WordPress Site.

In Task # 18, we practiced how to install, configure, edit, and set contact form 7 on localserver. In this task, we first answered a few questions asked by our subscribers (my #WPSpartans300).

First question was about memorizing long codes. This was asked by Farrukh Sajjad, one of my Spartans. I answered him to follow and understand PHP logic.

Second question was from Naveed, and it was about Autofill and Save Password features of Google’s Chrome Browser. I demonstrated how we can configure browser level settings to on and off such features. We also talked about email syncing feature.

Third question was from Mangal Singh Rathor from India. He asked how to add social media icons to Revolution Slider. We created a demo slider (Hero Scene). Uploaded an icon for YouTube. Linked it. Added animation. Boom.

Then we started our discussion about Contact Form 7’s mail tab.

It was detailed discussion. Hope this would help all.

We also discussed how to use Honeypot with CF7.

Then we configured SMTP plugin by WPForms. We created Gmail API. Got Client ID and Client Secret. Put it in the set fields. Boom. It was a success. Google sent an alert message that someone is trying to access gmail. It happens for security measures.

We sent a test email with the help of plugin and from contact form 7 frontend. I received both emails.

That’s it.
