Support » Plugin: Custom Contact Forms » overwhelming

  • I took 2 different attempts at setting up a form. Followed the quick start, and read the basic manual.

    Pressing default settings, and adding the shortcode to the page did not do anything for me. I tried to save some fields, and a form, but could not see any of them listed in the managers.

    I prefer to work on something self-explanatory for a feature so minor in a ‘blog’ site.

    Have you tried Contact Form 7? I find it quite simple and it has good documentation.

    While I do think that this plugin has a great potential, its admin interface is just getting worse with every new version. A huge list of confusing options that are all placed under one long page with no classification at all.. I’ve just changed my rate from 5 stars to 3.

    I completely appreciate the advanced functionalities that the plugin developer tries to integrate, and I’m not asking for dropping anyone of them. It’s just a matter of interface tweaking: organization, advanced options hiding, etc. and it would be great for normal users. Maybe he can split the options page into tabs and create help buttons for showing instructions when needed instead of showing them everywhere in the page.

    Just my 2 cents..
