Support » Plugin: Contact Form 7 » Great for confusing your site visitors.

  • Like most I started with this plug-in to support my site’s contact page. It works well enough for that if you don’t mind confusing your site visitors.

    The number one issue with this plug-in is the author’s refusal to build in support for redirection after submit. There have been requests for this feature dating back several years. The support website states 99.99% of the time a redirect is not needed. That is 100% wrong.

    After submit the form page replots with empty fields. There is a success message displayed at the very bottom of the page. Everyone I have asked to look at that behavior says the same thing; “it looks like the submit failed and I should try again or just give up.”

    You can force a redirect after submit if you don’t mind digging into the footer code of your theme. That is totally brain dead.

    I’ve uninstalled it and replaced with a fully functional form plug-in.

  • What new form plugin did you install? Contact form 7 isn’t good in my opinion too. Thanks!
