Support » Plugin: Contact Form 7 » Great Plugin

  • For me it’s the standard plugin everytime I need a form on my site. Awesome!
    I must say I feel that a lot of the bad reviews here are not justified. Often times they blame Google’s latest reCAPTCHA v3 because it comes with an annoying box on every single page of your site. Yes, I get that, but please don’t blame that on the plugin author. If you don’t like reCAPTCHA v3 (I don’t like it either) then don’t use it and implement a simple number quiz for your bot protection instead. The quiz is also explained in the CF7 documentation. And if you like, please criticise Google as well. I’m sure they have a form for that.
    As far as the CF7 is concerned it works perfect for me. Thanks!

    People are annoyed because the author deliberately forced thousands of sites onto Recaptcha v3 when there was absolutely no need. He could easily have let people choose between v2 and v3 as they are completely different implementations of recaptcha and Google will be supporting both for the foreseeable future.

    Criticising Google makes no sense as Google absolutely gives you the choice, Takayuki removed that choice for no apparent reason and has completely ignored the community feedback / backlash. Not to mention gave no indication that v2 functionality was being pulled from the plugin, not one mention of it being removed in the change-log.

    So everyone who was on v2 and updated, their forms were broken.
