Contact form and message field

Hey, I was wondering, is there a way to make the “message” field not required? I want to hide it, but obviously can’t submit the form if the message is required.

Why would you want to remove the message field? If you just want the name/email you could use the subscribe form.

Main reason is that the Contact Form module is able to connect with ACF. I tried using shortcodes to connect the subscribe form to ACF, but that didn’t seem to work.

I realized I could however just use javascript to pre-populate the message field in contact form, even if it is hidden. That works as a workaround.
