  • No, it appears that the developer has moved on to other things. We have tried to communicate with him here and at Github but he is not responding. It is a disappointing and frustrating loss.

    is there an alternative plugin?

    I also want to know about alternative plugin

    Although the plugin is not listed on WP.org it can be found on GitHub. But you will need to do a couple things to make sure you can always update to the latest version.
    * Download the lates release from GitHub https://github.com/mdsimpson/contact-form-7-to-database-extension/releases
    * Uninstall the one you have
    * Install the new version plugin via your WP plugins page by uploading the downloaded file
    * Similarly install a plugin that will track updates from GitHub: https://github.com/afragen/github-updater/releases
    When the plugin is updated, you will see a notice in the plugins page like normal, except it will be updated from GitHub.

    Wonderful to see the update. I am glad to see that the concept is not dead. To celebrate I made a long overdue donation. Thanks for this great software. So, what I understand is that you are done with WordPress and are just going to work through GitHub from now on. The updater is a nice compromise.

    Just a security question before I update the plugin according to Your description

    What about the CF7 data already already save by the plugin – won’t it be lost ????

    if so – do you have a workaround for saving that data so it won’t be lost??
