Flamingo is a message storage plugin originally created for Contact Form 7, which doesn’t store submitted messages.

After activation of the plugin, you’ll find Flamingo on the WordPress admin screen menu. All messages through contact forms are listed there and are searchable. With Flamingo, you are no longer need to worry about losing important messages due to mail server issues or misconfiguration in mail setup.

For more detailed information, please refer to the Contact Form 7 documentation page.


  1. Upload the entire flamingo folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.


Thank you so much!!

Thank you very much for your very useful plug-in !! 😀
I felt that it is very convenient when combined with Contact Form 7!😍

Best regards

Good start….

Lack of support and functionality downgrades this from a potentially-great plugin to only so-so. Better than nothing, I suppose.
