• Once upon-a-time in land not too far away from here there once existed a beautifully functional contact form plugin for WordPress. But then came the Greed Ogre who jumped all over that plugin until nothing useful of it existed on wordpress.org…

    As many others have said since version 1.8.0 of this plugin was released, this really was great and useful plugin. I even looked into upgrading to the Pro version but felt the price to be unrealistic for a contact form so I was waiting for the price to drop before purchase. I certainly won’t pay a yearly fee for this plugin now that the developer has shown itself to be so unethical that it offered a feature rich free plugin from which the developer later removed useful free features to attempt to force people to upgrade to the Pro version.

    A lot of site developers, WordPress bloggers and review writers must feel uneasy about their previous boastful reviews, this plugin and its developer. I know I do.

    This plugin is impractical to use now that database stored form responses (‘feedback’), fields and other features have been removed from the free version.

    There are more ethical ways that Theme Foundry could have used to monetise this plugin. Instead Theme Foundry chose to destroy its own reputation and the plugin.

    I’ll soon be removing this plugin from websites. Will probably return to using the Jetpack form module or ACF + the ACF Forms addon.

    Sorry to say it guys, but we’ve been duped.

    So sorry you feel this way, @leehodson!

    We knew removing the Responses screen in version 1.8.0 would upset a lot of users, and you have every right to be upset. Truly, the only reason we were forced to make this change was to ensure the ongoing viability of the free and paid versions well into the future.

    Again, so sorry! Do know none of your responses will ever be lost — you can download all of them in a .csv spreadsheet.

    Let us know if you need any help switching form builders.
