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.

Good, but....

Discreet, but the request obsessive switch to the PRO changes your mood

Helpful and Intuitive

Lol, Nice, Just tried it and very happy.

Could do with improvements
By , for WP 4.1.1

The free version of the plugin could do with a bit of work and there are better contact form plugins around.

Приходится менять код, дописывая width:100% чтобы изменить длинну строки для наилучшего вида. У меня не работает символ "*" для обозначения обязательных строк.

Про-версия слишком дорогая!

Works well, but too many adds...

Everytime I go to the plugin page in the admin it asks to me upgrade. Every single time. It's annoying.

Now with the latest update it keeps telling me "Contact Form to DB" on the plugin page.

I can't use a plugin that populates the admin with banners.

However, with all that being said... The plugin does work well if you don't mind all the banners.

With no Captcha, it's a spam magnet
By , for WP 3.4.2

The plugin is easy to set up and use, but I receive a constant stream of spam through it. There's no Captcha or Akismet integration. I'm installing another plugin now...
