    also this a temp build on a test site of mine in the hope that it all works so i can re-install on another server.

    when i go back into the theme settings it re-writes the shortcode as [contact-form-7 id=\'732\' title=\'Contact form 1\'] which is the same as as the contact form 7 settings apart from this has the backslashes and I dont know where they have come from

    404 means "Couldn't find the contact form with given ID or title". Make sure that you use correct contact form shortcode.

    please read my 2nd post. I have checked the shortcode and when I re-enter it exactly as it should be, then save changes. If i click off that tab and then go back to it, it has changed it to the shortcode but with slashes in it.

    Hi! I'm getting the same error...I went through all forums that I found and I tried almost everything and nothing seems to work. I tried renaming, changing "..." to '...', I was checking html code, etc. I think it happened after I updated plugin. I haven't done it yet on one of my websites so I still have version 3.1.2 and it's working perfectly. It's not working on my other website where I have new version 3.2. Could this be a reason?

    I just created a new page and put the correct shortcode in without the slashes and it seems to work, but in the theme options it renames it with the slashes so wont find the page.

    Isn't it just the theme's issue? I don't know about the theme at all. Instead ask the theme author about that.

    Don't ask me if that's theme issue;) I'm not a pro so I have to believe you. I have "cold stone theme" from elegant themes. So you suggest to ask them? What I can tell you that I'm using this theme all the time and I have that issue only since I've updated plugin.

    im on a different theme called automotiv and it also isn't working on the real estate theme.

    It is a strange one hence why I asked

    Obviously this tells that the theme does something wrong. You need to contact automotiv developers. It seems to be a tiny problem they can fix quickly. Is that a paid theme?

    Ok, but this doesn't happen in my case. I tried putting slashes, changing quotation marks and I still see the same ([contact-form-7 404 "Not Found"]). I also tried simply to change the theme but problem remains even on wordpress default theme called "Twenty eleven".

    I installed the last development version of Contact Form 7 (3.1.2) and it's working PERFECTLY again on the same theme. Maybe there is some conflict between version 3.2 and some other plugin?

    I downgraded to 3.1.2 because I also got this 404 error. On my main site I tested it with all plugins disabled and TwentyEleven with no effort...
    Tested 3.2 on my fresh testsite -> it worked??

    So what is causing this error?

    I am having a similar problem.

    I just installed contact form 7 version 3.3, and I am pasting the short code from my wordpress admin into a custom page.

    Here is the code I am pasting in:

    [contact-form-7 id="180" title="Contact form 1"]

    Instead of showing up as a form, I get this:

    [contact-form-7 404 "Not Found"]

    I have Contact Form 7 3.3 installed and wordpress 3.4

    Initially, I had 'Contact Form 7 - Customfield in mail' installed, but I de-activated that too see if that was the problem and nothing changed.

    I have also tried pasting this code into HTML, but had no luck there either....

    I looked for contact form 7 version 3.2 to see if I could downgrade to fix the problem, but I could not find it.

    Any ideas on what might be causing this? How can I correct it?

    I too having error when I click the Settings or the Contact on the menu it redirects me to the front end "page not found" page. What seems to be the problem?

    I have Version 3.2.1 installed and have tried everything in the last 20 days but nothing seems to be working. It is showing the same 404 error. This form is the main contact form for our clients to reach us. The theme that we are using is a commonly used JigsawWP 1.3.1. How can I resolve this at the earliest?

    I too am having this issue. I upgraded to WP 3.4.2 and Contact Form 7 3.3 (which claims to be 100% compatible with 3.4.2).

    However, the upgrade broke my Comment form and displayed an error: [contact-form-7 404 "Not Found"]

    I found the following article, and it appeared I wasn't using the correct short code, because I wasn't including the id. (Maybe that changed in this version?)
    http://contactform7.com/faq/#My_contact_form_doesnt_appear_instead_404_not_found_appears

    Anyways, I pasted in the correct short code -- now [contact-form-7 id="12613" title="Contact form 1"] instead of [contact-form-7 title="Contact form 1"] -- but now the plugin didn't display, and the error message disappeared.

    Here's several screenshots:

    This method worked to me for a while but stopped to work few days ago (I did some changes in my website). I updated wordpress to 3.4.2 and Contact Form to 3.3. To me it seems like some plugin conflict because I disabled few of them and guess what...IT'S WORKING!! Don't ask me which plugin exactly because I disabled simply some which I was not using any more like some galleries, videos and other contact forms plugins.

    For those who want to find previous version of any plugin (not only Contact Form) go here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/ choose plugin you like and click on "Developers". There you have all previous versions.

    I figured out that a plugin called "Grunion Contact Form" conflicts with Contact Form 7. I was getting the same error but when I killed Grunion it worked fine, using the last version availible. Probably a bad idea to use more plugins at the same time that do the same thing :)

    Just use the shortcode with no quotation marks, i.e:

    [contact-form-7 id=732]

    That works for me.
