    I loaded Contact Form 7 a month ago and it used to work. Now it only show the tag as text on the page. In an html viewer I can see that it is not picking up any HTML code, only showing as a text line:

    107<p>To contact us or submit a question to The Obvious Expert, please complete the form below.</p>
    108[contact-form 2 "Contact Us"]

    URL: http://www.obviousexpert.com/contact

    I have tried to uninstall any plugin that I had installed after Contact Form 7, but have not been able to resolve this.

    Any ideas?

    what has happened to me before 2 times in 2 different sites, it's that it automatically disappears when it's outdated, so you have to have the latest version of the plugin. After i upgraded it, it began to work fine in both sites!

    I have the latest version, and just completely uninstalled the plugin and reinstalled and it still isn't working. Any other ideas?

    I just installed it on my website, http://www.bmedreport.com/contact-us and the fields do not show. The form works, but the fields are invisible in both Firefox 3.0.10 and IE 8.

    I just removed this plugin and tried Enhanced WP-ContactForm... same result. No borders around the text fields... weird. Apparently it is not the plugins since it happens on 2 different ones.

    eenhtx, are there any possibilities of conflicts with other plugins or theme?

    I don't have a solution but I'm thinking it could be a version problem perhaps? I just started a site and am running wp 2.8 on it and just installed the plugin and it's working for me.


    Here is the exact html that I pasted onto the page as recommended by the plugin.

    [contact-form 1 "Contact form 1"]

    It's the standard form that the plugin has created for me.

    Here is the code that makes up the contact area that I am running.

    <p>Your Name (required)<br />
        [text* your-name] </p>
    <p>Your Email (required)<br />
        [email* your-email] </p>
    <p>Subject<br />
        [text your-subject] </p>
    <p>Your Message<br />
        [textarea your-message] </p>
    <p>[submit "Send"]</p>

    I don't know if it helps or if I'm on the right path as I am new to this but are you editing the html in the tools > contact form 7 area? Like I mean your not just pasting all the code into the html area of your page or post?

    I would say to edit the html how you want in the tool > contact form 7 area and then paste the code it gives for your custom form into the html area of your page or post to call in the plugin.

    I hope I help a little.

    The problem has been fixed and the forms returned after the latest plugin update from Contact Form 7 came out after 2.8.

    Thanks to all that tried to help!

    I'm having the same problem - but on only one of my websites! When i put in the code: [contact-form 1 "Contact form 1"] it just shows as text - not the Contact form. Weird that it works on my other sites. Any ideas, anyone?
