Contact Form 7

Just another contact form plugin. Simple but flexible.

Too difficult to configure with recaptcha
By ,

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.

Not safety for me

Installed contact-form 7, 8 weeks ago, suddenly some hackers tried to get in my webspace 30 times in 4 weeks. Then I removed the plugin.
Now, it is all good again.

I would like to rate 5 stars, because I like the simple integration. But it is too dangerous for me. There are many entries in google about hacked contact form 7. :-(

Works really well

Great plugin - thanks!

Excellent Contact Form
By , for WP 4.1.1

This is one of the best and most solid contact forms on WP. You can easily add Really Simple CAPTCHA from the same developer. I also often add a database plugin to save all form data.

There are many good forwarding features, such as sending to PayPal or opening a second form. Lot's of customization options. Good online documentation.

I love this form.

Very Useful - Will Donate When I Have Some Cash

Couple things I would do differently (if I knew how!). Still a 5-star plugin.

All in all, this is a GREAT FREE PLUGIN. I will be making a donation to the author as soon as I have some cash!

The best plugin form

Works like a charm.

Wouldn't use any other contact form for WordPress

Takayuki, I don't know if there are better plugins out there and I don't care. I will not switch anytime soon. I like what you're doing, especially with Flamingo -- I recommend everyone install this add-on ASAP. I've got 10 sites running CF7 and have no problems at all. It's great for lengthy and very complex forms. I also like that I can easily add descriptive copy and instructions between the fields and apply my theme's input css to your contact forms. Really, really great plugin! Another donation sent.


So useful for a real estate company

This plugin is amazing,

No more problem of asking to our prospect clients : "what property reference number are you interested?" because when they contact us via email (with the contact form 7) we receive the URL of the listing/property page from which they contacted us! We simply added the shortcode of the "Contact Form 7" plugin on every listing pages.

So fast and easy to set up and the support technique is amazing!

Thank you Takayuki
