What does "not work" mean?  No datepicker?  If so, this (again) most likely due to a javascript problem/conflict between themes and plugins.

I don't follow you.  Where are you proposing to enter code?

No, I didn't try datepicker for the reasons you said before.

I just tried to use the form field type "date". According to Contact Form 7 that works; it does nothing, just works like a text field. So I'm giving up on that.

See attached. I mean where is says Option 1, etc.

As a further extension, If I could just do my own custom php, I would have had this done days ago.

Can I build my own Contact Form using 100% Custom php?

A date field is a text field, it's just that the form should validate the entry as date before sending it on.  So I'm still not sure what "doesn't work" means in this case.

Can I build my own Contact Form using 100% Custom php?

Sure.  Build it as a plugin, shortcode, or custom page template:

Custom page template might be the easiest for a simple form.  Just copy your theme's existing page.php to page-something.php and add your form code to that file.
