Support » Plugin: Contact Form 7 » Recent Update Removed V3 – Very Bad Practice

  • A plugin is not only about its features, but about the people behind them.

    The recent update to Contact Form 7 has shown me not to trust this developer at all.

    The recent update just removed Google ReCaptcha V2 instead of just allowing it as an option. So ALL our sites using V2 (~50) broke. Very embarrassing and a lot of unnecessary urgent man hours to put to fix it by using this plugin to re-instate V2 https://wordpress.org/plugins/wpcf7-recaptcha/.

    I cannot trust this developer now, I will not be using Contact Form 7 just in case of other major changes in the future are rolled out.

    PLUGINS WITH MAJOR CHANGES SHOULD NOT BE RELEASED AS UPDATES, BUT RELEASED AS NEW VERSIONS. This is fundamental I am sorry. Do not mess with functionality people rely on to make their websites work.
