Event tracking does not work
By , for WP 4.5.2

If you looking to track events in Google Analytics. I would not recommend this product.

Doesn't even work
By , for WP 4.5.2

I was recommended this plugin after i had trouble with numerous other contact forms... this form is not sending ANY email to the designated email even though it says it has been sent!

Have not received ANY help for this problem!

It works on other sites but not on this one!

Plugin broken and no support
By , for WP 4.4.3

Latest update to the plugin that enforces same-domain email addresses has broken it for me and many others, judging by the support forums.

Developer has provided ZERO responsiveness to these issues, other than asking to see the site and then never following up, or terse one-line links to pages in the FAQ or documentation that don't address the question being asked, and which suggests the developer either isn't reading people's questions properly or is simply too busy to care.
Either way, I got bored of the waiting and the frustration and installed Ninja Forms instead. Much nicer.

It's no fun to say this, but I can't recommend this plugin while developer is so unhelpful
Avoid!

BEST TO WORSE PLUGIN EVER - AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE!
By , for WP 4.5.2

After they updated their plugin to only able to send to domain email addresses this has now became the WORST plugin I have ever used, customers calling me constantly to complain about not receiving form fills etc.

Have switched to Ninja forms and works like a charm - I was using Contact Form 7 on 64 websites and have removed it from every one because the constant problem.

What a waste of a great plugin!

9% effect on load time,it's insane.
By , for WP 4.5.2

according to "P3 - Plugin Performance Profiler" this plugin has 9% effect on load time,out of 24 plugins that is a lot.does what it needs do.

New versions causing losing functionality
By , for WP 4.5.2

I've a serious problem with the CF7 and it's connected plugins, like the date picker and PayPal plugins connected too CF7.
It seems that after an update of WP, those key-issues were not working anymore. This is serious, especially when I've multiple websites with many of those forms working and suddenly all of them stopped working.

I think I go over to a commercial product or I build one myself. This is a very bad situation where an update can influence the working of so many plugins.

And their support is not helping and nobody clearly has anything useful to say.

Last update breaks everything, Uninstalling.
By , for WP 4.5

This plugin is useless to me and a lot of users since the last update, it forces you to receive emails only to your domains email, making it useless to me.

All of my forms are failing since last update!
By , for WP 4.4.2

Contact forms are too important for a plug-in that publishes updates with obvious functional bugs that any amount of superficial testing would have uncovered. I'm switching to Formidable.

"Contact Form 7. You have version 4.3.1 installed. Update to 4.4.1. View version 4.4.1 details. Compatibility with WordPress 4.4.2: 100% (according to its author)"

The worst support i had ever received
By , for WP 4.4.2

NO answers from this support team. Instead, they DELETE all my messages. Don't understand what the hell is going on with these "support" team, if you they be call like this. This is the WORST service i had ever had from a plugin or theme team.
