    This plugin works, but it’s very complicated to configure custom forms and it’s not beginner friendly. Also, I think the spam check (CAPTCHA) should be enabled by default.

    @sachajkhoward – I’m very interested to hear more detail on why you feel “it’s very complicated to configure custom forms and it’s not beginner friendly”.

    As an advanced user of CF7 it’s no longer practical for me to see CF7 from a by beginner viewpoint any longer. I am genuinely interested to hear your point of view.

    What would a more beginner friendly CF7 look like?

    I’m a more advanced user myself, but it’s always good to have beginners in mind. I think a drag and drop form builder would be awesome, along with better spam protection. Also, some additional styling options would be cool.

    @sachajkhoward – I’ve attempted to tackle the ‘additional styling options’ for beginners at https://wordpress.org/plugins/contact-form-7-skins/.

    I use https://wordpress.org/plugins/contact-form-7-honeypot/ for spam protection. I’ve found it very effective and easier to implement than CAPCTHA and more importantly it imposes no extra work on form users.
