don't understand how it works

A long time could not understand the creation of the page contact.

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.

Loses Function after updates
By ,

I used contact form 7 for quite a while. But everytime the plugin or wordpress updated, I had to perform a check of all my associated forms, because there have been a lot of issues with the wordpress sendmail component. It wasn't adressed correctly, so I lost a lot of contact emails. I can't rely on this plugin anymore, also it has a lot of functions

Worked great, but CAPTCHA does not work
By , for WP 4.0

Used to worked fine, but CAPTCHA does not work for a long time. No support from developers on this. I switched to Fast Secure Contact Form which is more simple, easy and works!

Works on some of my sites, but not everywhere :(

I have disabled Super Cache plugin, but still arrows spin forever..

Causes spam problems for me
By , for WP 3.8.1

I tried to use it in 3 different projects and every single time it got me problems with spambot. Recaptcha was enabled and somehow it wasn't enough and I had huge problems dealing with bots sending thousands of emails from my domain every single day.
I switched to another solution, and spambot problem disappeared.

However, I appreciate all the configuration possibilities etc. Great work there!

Grundsätzlich gut ... ABER!
By , for WP 3.8

Nachdem das Plugin 'Contact Form 7' zwar grundsätzlich funktioniert jedoch vollkommen sinnloserweise 'https'-URLs erzeugt habe ich das heute spontan deaktiviert und unmittelbar danach waren die https-URLs im Quelltext verschwunden. Sodass ich dies eindeutig dem Plugin zuordnen konnte.

Nicht nur das Google diese fehlerhaften URLs indexiert - diese produzieren zwangsläufig auch noch Fehlermeldungen bei Besuchern, die über die Google-Suche herein kommen, da ja tatsächlich kein SSL-Zertifikat existiert.

Wer also dieses Plugin ebenfalls nutzt, sollte seinen Blog mal danach testen und sich seinen Quelltext anschauen und hierbei bevorzugt den Firefox als Browser nutzen, denn bspw. mit Chrome (OS X) ist wiederum alles in Ordnung.

not working on WP 3.7.1
By , for WP 3.7.1

Use it on several sites, but the big pain is that an up-to-date WP site experiences incompatibility with CF7.

Stopped working
By , for WP 3.5.1

It was working fine and now suddenly it stopped working. So I wrote my own contact form plugin now.
