Support » Plugin: Contact Form 7 » Frustrating… Thinks that it is spam.

  • It was working fine before. But lately, all contact form messages sent were marked as spam so it couldn’t send emails through my contact form. I searched a lot in internet to figure out why this was happening. I spent hours to fix it. I closed all other plugins to see if there was a conflict. I colsed ReCaptcha… it didn’t work whatever I did. Then I found a website suggesting this:

    “If your contact from 7 plugin treat a form submissions as spam and it failed. Add the following line in your functions.php file

    add_filter(‘wpcf7_spam’, ‘__return_false’);

    I put this line in the functions.php and it started working again. But it took 3 hours to find this solution. (Faster than the “support” reply though.

    I write here if you’re having the same issue with it. I don’t know why this happens but it is ridicilous. My other website with same plugins work fine. This might be a bug, I don’t know. I don’t know what is the disadvantages to put this line in the functions.php but it started to work properly. I think I will use another plugin for my contact form because I don’t trust these kinds of modifications even if it solved the problem.

  • UPDATE: After writing that line to the “functions.php , it started working fine and now my clients can send me emails using the form in my contact page. HOWEVER: even that I use the ReCaptcha in that form, I started getting 4-5 spam emails sent through that form in my contact page. If I delete that additional line I added, then nobody can send emails so spammers also can not. But when I add that code, then I get 4-5 spam emails from some ridiculous sites. This problem was never happening before. I think I’ll have to switch to another form plugin. Any advices?
