Does NOT work with SSL & developer won't fix
By , for WP 4.3.1

This plugin does NOT work with SSL. There are many support requests to this issue which just get closed with no resolution.

Crashed my site...

Was a big fan of this plugin, but today's update crashed my site!
Mad about it...

golden lollipop award for mad support
By , for WP 4.2.2

i got the worsest experiences with non-robust codewriting, documentation and customer support ever!

on his website the author describes how to set up an upload directory. but in a very poor way. if one does not use relative paths but absolute ones, it immediatly deletes e.g. the whole wp-content folder.

for heavens sake!

telling him, that his function is badly written and his documentation doesn't say anything, he just answers the ME myself would have "misconfigured" something.

THE EVIL LOLLIPOP AWARD 2015 FOR fake support goes to Takayuki Miyoshi.

plugin sended only first mail, from there doesnt wanted to send any email, no fixes worked....this plugin is total carbage

From the moment I installed this plugin, I started to receive about 2-3 emails every day from all kind of "SEO experts". It is extremely upsetting and annoying because those emails don't even have an unsubscribe link and they are coming from different addresses each and every time. I have no idea how to make them stop.
So I had to uninstall the plugin and I don't want to ever hear about Contact Form 7 again. Sorry, but you shouldn't allow this to happen.

sorry to say so

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


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.

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. :-(
