Hello. Love this plugin .. used it successfully for many years.
This latest update, however, is throwing errors on numerous config entries that were otherwise previously working and without error.
Fortunately for many of my websites, and despite the red, ominous errors, the configuration gets saved AND continues to work without issue.
Notwithstanding, I noted within this forum the "FROM" issue and have since adopted the suggested config to use:
[your-name] <email@example.com> and set ADDITIONAL HEADERS as such:
However, I prefer to use the following as the TO config and this, too, is throwing an error now. While it seems to be working regardless, what is the issue with this advanced config?:
_raw_ as discussed here: http://contactform7.com/selectable-recipient-with-pipes/
One other issue I now have was the "Sender's message was sent successfully" config; I was using a
<br /> and it WAS working. Now, it's obviously stripped out and throwing an error in the config. Why was this ability removed?
I am certain these changes were made in everyone's best interest. That said, perhaps a clear and visible warning on the update disclosure page was in order .. as this 2016-FEB update certainly has frustrated many admins.
Please fix the known bug:
"This email address does not belong to the same domain as the site."
for this right entry:
Contact Form 7, as it is today, is not intuitive plugin. Unfortunately, this is not for beginners. While it can be with a good explanation. I was a year ago switched to this plugin with Gravity Forms. The reason: the author of the Contact Form 7 plugin gives priority to Plain Text and knows the value of it. I'm a web developer with experience. However, my migrate to this plugin was not painless. After several days of research, reading and studying my form started to work perfectly. And this is my favorite.
- Forcing plain text, not HTML
- Clean code
- Nothing unnecessary
- No precise instructions
- Instructions not easy to understand
- Instructions are not in one place
- Instructions are lumped as with a shovel
- There are no screenshots
- Screenshot (currently on WordPress) does not mean anything
How to improve this plugin
- Make more screenshots (here on WordPress). Images are worth more than words.
- Create ready-made forms. They can be imported in XML format.
- Make instructions for quick start. PDF can also.
This plugin is not bad but can be much better. My rating is 4 out of 5.
This update is needed because of new changes in mail handling
If you get the error
'This field can be empty depending on user input."
place in subject section of mail configuration in plugin setting
If you get error
"the email doesn't belong the same domain"
I suggest to place in future a more clear advice in plugin configuration section so people can see more easily the reason and importance of latest update.
Thank you :)
I always prefer this plugin. I love it.
You want users to contact you from your website right?
This is a must have.
Absolutely dead simple to setup and configure and powerful enough to use for nearly every use case.
This is one of the few plugins that I use on virtually every site.
There is no need to try any other form than this one. It's so easy to use.
I couldn't make the plugin work in the previous version, but when I update it the plugin told me where were my mistakes.
