Resource hog -- P3 scan indicated 85% of plugin load time came from Contact Form
By , for WP 4.3.1

As the title says, I've been trying to troubleshoot what's been slowing down my websites since I upgraded my test environment to WordPress 4.3.1 and updated all plugins. After a few days of digging I ran the P3 (Plugin Performance Profiler), which indicated 85% of my plugin load times were caused by this plugin -- about 2.5 seconds extra on every page load. The thing is, my test environment is on a subdomain that isn't live, and this plugin was still slowing down both of my other live sites on the same domain. As soon as I deactivated it the issue went away.

This may be a conflict with one of my other plugins, so I'll list them below. However, I hope my review helps others who are running into the same issue. I'm giving three stars because we've used this plugin for years because of how simple it is. I'll have to find a new plugin for our purposes, or at least until this issue is resolved.

I like it just fine. I don't know a lot about the world of wp contact forms, but this plug-in gets the job done for me, so I'm happy with it.

This is my Favorite Contact Plugin!

After trying some other plugins with their complicated settings, I discovered this BWS plugin which was a pleasure to work with. I tested it by sending a message to myself and it arrived within seconds. I am hooked!

A most excellently featured plugin especially as in the basic form free it has more going for it than some of its rival premium counterparts have.
Installed and set up with no problems and works faultlessly.
A professional product from a professional outfit .

Used a few times now. Works every time. I really like how the BWS plugins integrate with each other according to the needs of various websites.
