    Please move back the menu to a lower position (i know i could make it by myself via hook, but...). Usually it should be placed right under or within "tools". such a high position (under comments right now) means creating forms as many as articles or pages or comments or some custom post types.

    No. Forms are custom post types so it's now in the correct menu position.

    i like this plugin and technically it is okay using custom post types for the forms. but usually forms are not created in that amount compared to other post types - and a lot of templates use about 5-10 custom post types with a higher menu-priority than forms. maybe you could think about replacing the menu to position 58 (right above the separator before appearance)?
    A known bug traced here is preventing add_object_page() from appearing on the last position. In my case I use 6 addt. custom post types and add_menu_page(...,$position). It would be a solution, if CF7 also uses add_menu_page(...,58) in admin.php - i just tested this and it works perfect!

    i have to bring up this topic again.

    remember: due to the add_object_page bug described above, cf7 doesn't appear on last position. this causes menu-position conflicts with other custom post types. why isn't it resolved yet as i suggested?

    This also affects me. Several of my sites use multiple custom post types. I usually install Contact Form 7 by default, but cannot use the latest version, as it breaks the other post types. I have to downgrade to CF7 v3.1.1, which is not ideal.
