  • This plugin not only gave me garbled resuts, when I de- activated it errors appeared on my live site on each page. I had to reinstall and reactivate it to get rid of the errors. Now I have to figure out how to kill it without trashing my site. Well done guys.

    Hi @pauldavids

    If you deactivate the plugin then the shortcodes you added to your form will no longer execute, and will instead show up as text. This is the case with any plugin that adds shortcodes.

    Rather than post a 1-star review with no detail, why not post a support request including your error messages? I will be more than happy to help.


    Hi Angus,

    I deleted all of the shorcodes before I deactivated the plugin. Still many many errors on deactiation. Eventually I had to (1) Install and activate your plugn. (killed the errors) (2) go into the backend via FTP and delete your plugin (3) on restarting word press your plugin was finally GONE and no errors.

    ie – deactivation of your plugin caused the errors

    Hello again Angus,

    I would love for this plugin to (1) Actually work well and (2) to be user friendly on deactivation. Fix these problems, let me know via [moderated] and I will retry it and re-rate if apprpriate. To 5 stars if all works!

    Hi Paul,

    Do you remember anything about what the errors said? I can’t reproduce this behaviour.
