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.


Installation Instructions

As a long-time user of custom contact form, this is a nice addition.
But – and this is why I gave only 4 stars – I would like to get a notification on new submissions. Like the update-notifications for plugins.

Keep up the good work, I really like it!

not so good

Needs manual addition to show fields + mail body does not opening on some servers, “Cannot load flamingo_inbound” message.

Excelente herramienta lastima que no dejara responder desde alli mismo.

Excelente herramienta con todo lo necesario para identificar quien te envio el mensaje, desde que canal, desde que ip, desde que navegador y sistema operativo, y demas informacion basica com para saber con quien esta mas o menos tratando uno, pero lastima que no deja que uno pueda responder desde la misma interfaz el mensaje usando la configuracion al menos de nuestro servidor. bueno quizas algun dia le agreguen esta opcion para no tener que usar otro plugin adicional para este tipo de interaccion.

Casi perfecto por…

Es casi perfecto por falta de poder almacenar también los mensajes enviados. Para mí eso sería lo ideal y de momento no he encontrado ningún plugin que lo haga.
