    I had the same problem. The plugin has always worked for me, but I now installed it on a new blog. (On my other blogs, I didn't even realize that the options page didn't work.)

    The solution is simple, because it's basically a little bug, which only in newer WP versions causes the loading of the page to fail.

    In the file wp-contactform.php, almost at the bottom, replace

    add_action('admin_head', 'wpcf_add_options_page');


    add_action('admin_menu', 'wpcf_add_options_page');

    and you're done.

    Btw, you might also want to set the plugin's version number to 999, elsewise it will always suggest an upgrade ... however, if you upgrade, you'll get a different plugin than WP Contact Form III.


    Still a fan of WPCF III -- simple and does the job.
