i always liked the plugin and it was the best for me. but i think many mambers did not know and did not try the date block

THE DATE CODE DOES NOT WORK IN I.E !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

for those who use chrome and firefox they just dont know
the worst thing is that this bug is old and wel known by the creator they made a fix for it but thats something you will have to find out the hard way

bda thing they should warn you in advance
for me a 0 star only thats something i can not give

Quick and easy to use and the plugin author is very active in responding to support queries. Now to make some cash and send a bit his way.

Install this one rather than any other form plugin!

Not all it's cracked up to be
By , for WP 4.1.1

I installed this plugin because it got very high ratings. Boy was I disappointed.

My biggest complaint about this plugin is that once you created a field, there's no way to edit it. You have to create it again and with your minor corrections.

It looks robust at first, but the end user is left with a lot of experimentation to figure it out. And no, the documentation did not help. I found it basically useless.

With all the drag and drop functionality that's out there, this plugin seems a little archaic.

Sorry to be so negative, but I really don't understand why this got such high ratings.

Too difficult to configure with recaptcha

The only instructions to activate the Simple Recaptcha for Contact Form 7 read:
Configure plugin from Settings => CF7 Simple Recaptcha.
This makes no sense whatsoever, as the settings for the Contact Form 7 are nothing but the page where your forms are listed. There is nothing on that page to configure. I am intermediate coding experienced and the word "Simple" belongs nowhere with this plugin. Though I am grateful it is "Free," the time spent trying to figure out plugins with inadequate instructions cost me more in time and aggravation than could possible be considered non-gratis.

Great but not perfect

The set up is so simple in comparison to others - other plugins have gone OTT with their form creation tools and features, this is nice and simple. Since all I wanted was a simple contact form, I was glad not to have to go through all the fluff that the other plugins made me go through. I can't see this being easy to set up for many (if any) of my clients, the backend would confuse them, but for me, it was exactly what I was looking for. No fancy flashy drag and drop, click here, click there, just, nice simple codes. And my clients will never need to go back into the contact form plugin to change anything anyway.

This plugin adds its styles correctly! BONUS POINTS. Which means I was able to use wp_dequeue_style in order to remove the stylesheets it added in order to completely take control of the form styling without having to battle with another stylesheet.

However, the HTML it output seems mad. For starters, why are all the form elements wrapped in a paragraph tag? Secondly, why is there a line break between each input field, anything this achieves can be achieved through styling and keeps more control in the hands of us designers. And a few other things. Would be nice if this was cleaned up a bit.

Would also be great if we could control the html that it outputs.

I have got some concerns about the fact that there are several reports of contact form 7 having a security problem that allowed hackers access to the website, so will be keeping an eye on that, and will definitely put this down to 1 star if I experience any problems with that.
