Weird way of dealing with CSS
By ,

The technical part of the plugin is great. The way it deals with CSS, however, is appalling, making it extremely difficult to tailor-make your Contact Form.

Awkward Interface
By , for WP 3.6

I've only tried this out for a little while but I thought I'd comment on it anyway. The admin panel structure is really awkward. I can't remove the field titles without creating ugly and unnecessary CSS. The code produces its own IDs and inline CSS that override my code which means I have to go into my stylesheet and make changes. Overall, I'm not impressed. I suggest doing something like Nivo Slider and allowing for themes so that we don't have to deal with your default inline CSS. There is probably more I can complain about but I'll end it here.

I really have to submit some content to give a plug-in a rating? I guess I'll be rating plugins less often less often! I was only trying to help not get sucked into an argument ...

Inline CSS is a deal breaker.
By , for WP 3.5

This plugin can probably be configured to generate any form you can possibly imagine, but the result is a long (long, long, long) page of settings that each have to be configured separately.

(Srsly, the administrative interface of this thing is a nightmare. I mean, I understand how it happens: you start with a nice, clean, simple interface, and over time and the addition of many, many features, it turns into spaghetti. The plugin is apparently undergoing a major overhaul. Hopefully the interface will get a workover in the process.)

And yet? Out of that endless array of options? There is no single checkbox or button for disabling the plugin's default stylings completely and allowing you to style the form via your own style sheet. The plugin itself does not use a stylesheet. It uses *inline CSS* (??? so bad!!!), with the reasoning that this way the stylesheet doesn't get overwritten with every update. Okay, here's how you overcome that: let me use my own stylesheet. *One* setting to give the location of that stylesheet. Or even no setting -- there are lots of plugins that will check for a standard CSS stylesheet name in the current theme directory before defaulting to its own stylesheet. Gigpress comes to mind.

If you want to use your own stylesheet, you have to define your own classes in the form setup for every. single. element. of every. form. OMG.

I'm out.

Has to exist on its own, can't design around it
By , for WP 3.4.2

I like the plugin in that it works and the tools and instructions are easy. But I can't put this form into the middle of a page with a sidebar and other text content and design elements. I can't really use it that way.
