Just another contact form plugin. Simple but flexible.
Downloaded this plugin as I had used it previously on another site last year (site no longer running). It got rave reviews across a number of sites so I installed it.
Created my first contact form and saved, refreshed to see the changes and -- my entire site is messed up! Zero formatting, just plain html. Tried to clear cache, every little trick, read a bunch of forums before ended up removing plugin. Even without it the site remained strange so ended up reinstalling my theme (luckily a child-theme!). Won't be doing that again, ever.
Way too many people opening tickets with us because the form fails to work, unexplained validation errors. It all happened at a critical time. Felt completely helpless. Will never use Contact Form 7 again. Avoid.
Does not work with version 3.6 of WP
The worst thing is to receive email from your partners saying that contact form is not working... Searched on forums - zillions of same issues - Validation errors, Fails, ... And no information on how to fix this. The only answer on developer's site is: "There are really various reasons for server side problems, so I can’t explain exactly what yours is. But experiences of other users who solved their problem might be helpful for you."
CAPTCHA does not work on my installation even though I have GD and Freetype installed and enabled. The plugin does not appear to have any anti-spam settings that I can find.
Edit: lowered rating even more after arguing with mods and wasting more time trying to get the plugin to work. It does not work and the documentation provided has typo errors in critical spots and does not seem to adequately apply to the latest wordpress version.
simply randomly does Not work when you need it most

and no it's not the SMTP problem or the "to email address" problem.
This plugin has compatibility issues with a multilingual CMS plugin. If you need to create a multilingual website you cannot use CF7. I've posted my problem in the support forum but the answer was quite rude. So no solution at all.
It doesn't collect information from all the fields filled by users.
If you want some incomplete contact information, then this the perfect plugin!
why does it not send emails when it seems that it is working for everyone else.
CF7 mails do ot work on many hosting providers and this bug is oooold :(
