Works, but has a very serious flaw

I run a site for a client. We used this plugin until we found out that when you get to larger (50k+) number of submissions, then it causes Contact Form 7 submissions to slow or fail completely. The request stalls, millions of calls get made to the database, and the user gets no feedback.

Uninstalled it, and saw an immediate drop in submission time from 30-40 seconds to basically no time at all.

Beware until this is specifically addressed.

Time saver and simple install – Just what I was looking for

The Flamingo WordPress plugin is a very valuable time saving plugin. As a PHP programmer with knowledge of the MySQL DB I used to hand code this kind of stuff. It’s not difficult to code this kind of stuff but there are many manual steps to make it all work together.

This plugin allowed me to do a 1.5 hour job in 30 mins. And this was the first time I installed it. Next time it will be a 10 min job!

Thanks, I5

Works for me

It works out of the box and has saved my hide when the mail forward wasn’t working right.
