Darn
By , for WP 3.9.1

I don't know what everyone likes about contact form 7! I installed and removed it several times.. just don't like it, no preview, too much coding.

Fast Secure Contact Form has alot of potential: They don't hound you to buy their "pro version" and only ask for a reasonable donation for support. Great preview and lots of settings. Seems totally customizable with no limitations I have found yet (unlike webdorado's form maker and others)!

Cons:
>You cant delete the sample forms and fields, I like to start from scratch (you can change them somewhat tough).
>You can choose to display checkboxes "inline" but how the heck do you align them?! I have like 20 checkboxes and they display as a conglomerated mish mash, I would have like them to display like in columns or be able to center or align left or right EASILY without coding.
>The biggest issue is that I have literally tried everything and emails keep going to spam. I have tried like ten contact forms and although most of them have more cons than pros, they ALL send emails properly except this one. Too bad, I kinda liked this one.

1st Contact Form plugin that does not send
By , for WP 3.8.1

I have yet to use a contact form plugin on either Joomla or WordPress that does not send mail. This is the first. Tried all suggestions on FAQ and nothing. Use 2 different WP contact form plugins for other sites on same server and no problems there.

Good until you update

AND LOSE ALL YOUR FORMS YOU'VE SPENT HOURS WORKING ON!!!!!

Never got it to work.
By , for WP 3.8.1

I'm sorry to say that we were never able to make this plug-in work for us. I can only speculate as to what the trouble was, possibly relating to our own setup. We may revisit this at some later date if our other anti-spam solutions do not work out.

Upgrade 4.0 - Don't do it - run like hell instead
By , for WP 3.6.1

Is one star the lowest review I can give?
Same thing as the last guy - Rogue input fields for email, name, etc. Then there is the constant reporting of error codes for Captcha cache,
Added:
wp-content/plugins/si-contact-form/captcha/cache/5LWlQZGwSKATUJpN.php
Removed:
wp-content/plugins/si-contact-form/captcha/cache/FeEnlOlZ4bixExeG.php

Confirmation emails won't send and the list goes on and on. My Web developer has worked the entire day trying to straighten this thing out, and what is most maddening? The old version worked with no drips no drools and no errors. This release should not have been made public with this many problems. I can't begin to guess how much money web owners are going to spend with their tech people try to replace this form and/or resolve the issues. I give zero stars.

Upgrade installed scheduling with rogue links
By , for WP 3.6.1

I am using this plugin on a couple of sites. Recent update by default enabled a rogue button and a direct link to some scheduling crap. I am rating this as one star, will replace with something else as soon as I can. Don't trust the developer anymore, how do I know the next thing he decides to do is to install some malware on my site?

Version 4.0.6 wiped everything
By , for WP 3.6.1

Had been very happy with this but upgrading from a v3.1.9.2 to 4.0.6 has wiped all my settings. Lovely. Will have to be more careful hitting that Upgrade button.

Others considering this upgrade - you have been warned.

keeps shutting out my site
By , for WP 3.5.2

Several times now, I have gone to my site and all I see is code from this plugin. Can't get to my site. Can't do anything until I delete all the files for this plugin. I then have to deactivate and delete the plugin.

Once I had to completely begin again - new WordPress installation - to get rid of it and get things working again.

I tried the plugin several times now. I'm done! No more!

not as fast as it claims
By , for WP 3.5.2

The worst plugin in terms of speed, see the link I provided, about 45% impact

Too many errors for me
By , for WP 3.5.1

This is a great plugin until you get a redirect problem. I got an error and had to totally reinstall WordPress to get rid of it losing all my hard earned SEO along with it.
Foolishly I chose this plugin again because I liked it so much, but now I have the same error again. The support for this error puts the blame on your server which is not true as I set the new site up on a different server. But if you want proper support or explanation from this guy, guess what, you have to pay him.
