WARNING! 2.6.10 hides your forms

I’ve just updated to 2.6.10 form 2.6.9 and it killed my forms! Do NOT update to 2.6.10 if you are not prepared to recreate the forms and who know what else must be done after the update. I reverted to 2.6.9 and to a database backup.

EDIT on 01-07-2017-07
I give 3 starts instead of 1. I will add more, if they update not just the plugin but the plugin info here at WordPress.org, which still says “tested up to 4.5.9” even tough it works in WordPress 4.8 with some rare php notices sometimes in my log.

English message hardcoded in javascript file

Hello.

This is a very nice plugin, but I noticed something bad : in file js/mailin-front.js, there are two english message hardcoded ! I need to translate them.
Messages are :
— “Please fill out valid email address”
— “Please fill out required fields”

Very disturbing, right ?

Brilliant with WooCommerce

I have used the Automation and it is great, allows easy setup of workflows based on action within the website.

I also use the Campaigns, again great … but … the only downside appears that the web app and the WordPress Plugin do not sync their forms !

This means you create brilliant forms on the web app, and then they are not available within the plugin so you cannot get a shortcode !!!

Seems a little strange
