    I just upgraded to the latest version, and now my front and back ends are totally whitescreened with the following error message:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function wpcf7_add_shortcode() .... in functions.php

    I'm on wordpress 3.7.1

    Mine too. Had to restore from a backup, delete 3.5.4 version plugin file, and recreate my forms on old plugin version. But would like to keep up to date. Any answers for us? Thanks.

    So it seems the plugin got deactivated after I did an upgrade. I was able to resolve this by manually activating the plugin through a php script - since I couldn't do it through the admin.

    Now, however, it is working but with my debugger on I am getting the following error message:

    Warning: Missing argument 2 for wpcf7_add_shortcode() in ....../wp-content/plugins/contact-form-7/includes/shortcodes.php on line 179

    Try deactivating other plugins and theme which extend Contact Form 7's tag set. If it solves the issue, you need update of the extension plugin or theme.
