No longer works
By , for WP 4.4.2

I discovered this doesn't work anymore. The forum showed some issues and obviously they aren't solved.

Outdated, does not work
By , for WP 4.4

The "Detailed Integration Instructions" packaged with the plugin are horribly out of date. The screenshots appear to be from WordPress 3.0 and don't match up at all with the actual screens you get when configuring the plugin.

You can map which fields you want to send to Constant Contact, but there's no way to select the list you want to add the user to when they submit your form.

Despite all this, I mapped my form fields and submitted a test. I received the submission via email, so the form works, but Constant Contact did not capture any of the data submitted.

About the only thing that did work was entering the credentials for Constant Contact.

Plugin doesn't work!
By , for WP 4.4

This plugin does not work with WP 4.4. The opt in checkbox doesn't show up and when I finally tweaked the code to get it to show up, it sent all information to Constant Contact whether the user had clicked on the 'opt in' checkbox or not. Not good. It also marked all the contacts as 'implied' even if they had opted in (they should be 'express' if they've opted in).

Does not work with WordPress 4.0+
By , for WP 4.2.2

As the headline says, does not work with 4+, which was released 9 months ago. Plugin developer is silent on the threads requesting help with this issue on Github:

https://github.com/katzwebservices/Contact-Form-7-Newsletter/issues/45
https://github.com/katzwebservices/Contact-Form-7-Newsletter/issues/38
https://github.com/katzwebservices/Contact-Form-7-Newsletter/issues/30

And this 7 month old thread with has crickets:
https://wordpress.org/support/topic/contacts-not-being-sent-to-list?replies=5

Will write new (5 star) review when/if developer decides to respond, as plugin worked great prior to 4.0.

Plugin fails to deliver.
By , for WP 4.0

Plugin fails to add entries (email, name fields) to Constant Contact. There are no error messages or warnings of any kind. CF7's core functionality is not compromised.
I followed the developer instructions, yet no luck. I did not open the thread on GitHub since it seems to me the previous support questions had not been resolved.

I will gladly change the rating if the issue with Constant Contact is resolved.

Spam Issue

Cant seem to get this plugin working
By , for WP 3.8.1

During the installation when I click on constant contact nothing is loaded on the settings page other than the constant contact logo

Doesn't work
By , for WP 3.8.1

Don't bother with the plugin, it's not working for me either. It's not consistent and there is no developer support. It might work for a few tests, and then you will notice that you won't get anything. I've left a message on GitHub but it was never resolved.
