Contact Form 7
[resolved] Since Contact Form 7 3.3.3 update, Submit fails with error (8 posts)

    Since the 3.3.3 and WP 3.5.1 update (either or both could be implicated, because they were updated at the same time) all Contact Form 7 forms return "Failed to send your message. Please try later or contact administrator by other way."

    These forms have all been working on this site for several years without problems. No change has occurred to the AMP stack on the server. There has been no change to the theme, pages, plug-in settings or other content. There is no site cache enabled.

    Contrary to the FAQ, there is no colored box around the message. It appears with no border, so that's not providing any useful information.

    Maybe your theme changes the border style or sets the background color same as the border. You should fix it first.

    It really makes little difference. The forms worked. There were updates. The forms no longer work. Nothing else changed. CSS is not the reason the forms no longer work.

    Of course CSS is not the reason the form fails. But you need to fix the CSS first to know the reason of failure, right?

    Not really. All I need to know is that it's broken because of an update (which is certain), there are others having the same issue after the same update (visible in the forums) and it's not being fixed. I don't have time to dig into the code myself so I replaced it with a similar plug-in that does work. Not very satisfying, perhaps, but practical.

    Every time WordPress updates, I see someone saying "WP update broke my contact form" on the forum. In most cases WP update is just a trigger, not the cause of the issue. You should remember that same situations happen with other contact form plugins.

    Can I add to the thread please. I'm also experiencing this issue and can see no mail errors in the log. I have also tried the WP to SMTP plug fix - unfortunately it didn't work. My server is also configured to use phpmail() so that wasn't an issue.

    Are there any develops to the thread to address the issue? I use your plugin on all my sites, it works perfectly (usually) and would rather not use another plugins if possible.

    I am having this same issue. I get a red box around the same phrase above, and it won't work properly. I got this plugin in a templatemonster template. What is the solution to this issue?

    Thank you in advance.
