Contact Form 7
[resolved] Contact Forms are in the DB but not in the Dashboard (3 posts)

    Just upgraded to WordPress 3.4.1 and Contact Form 7 to Version 3.2
    - The old contact forms are in the table prefix_contact_form_7 but:
    - The Dashboard -> Contact does not show any of the old contact forms
    - The page with the link to the contact form now reads:
    [contact-form-7 404 "Not Found"]

    - I added a new contact form and...
    - It is not in the table prefix_contact_form_7
    - The Dashboard -> Contact shows this newly created contact_form
    - The link to the new contact form works... Where is this form saved?

    Maybe auto data migration process failed for some reason. Search 'wpcf7' (option_name) in the wp_options table and remove it, then open the admin page again. You'll see the old data in the list. New contact forms are in the wp_posts table with wpcf7_contact_form post types.

    Thank you very much, that worked!!!

    Only one thing, a new form I had created after the plugin was updated was not displayed in the dashboard, even thought it is still in the wp_posts table. I do not care about this because it was just a test form, but FYI.

    After implementing your fix, I created a new form and it works fine.

    Thanks again, really appreciate your help,
