I've used this plugin for many years on many sites without any problems and would always have rated it 4 or 5 stars. However version 5.4 update caused a conflict with another plugin. When I raised this problem in the support forum I was given the blunt response to contact the other plugin provider for support and the author marked the problem as resolved. Very poor support attitude to try and pass the buck and forget about it. I will now be changing to Caldera Forms on dozens of websites I manage.

Fantastic plugin! BUT, the 5.4 update has an issue when using the recaptcha integration. In its current state, using rv3, forms will not submit at all, and an error is thrown in the console. In the meantime, I recommend sticking to update 5.3 to avoid this issue until a fix is in place.

Unfortunately updating to v5.4 yesterday was a mistake. The mail functionality appears to be working but I'm getting the "spinning wheel" problem when clicking Submit & no message is displayed - it just hangs. Site visitors won't know it's working, so I had to roll back to the previous version. Prior to 5.4 I've enjoying Contact Form 7 as a very lightweight replacement for my older WP Forms contact form. In both cases, reCaptcha's Javascript hurts page speed so I used a work-around: I used the Quiz feature in Contact Form 7 but instead of display a text question I use a custom-made captcha image of my own. Has been working great, and no page overhead! Hopefully whatever the problem with v5.4 is, it'll get resolved, but that's very disappointing. I get the feeling it wasn't tested. 🙁 **I'll be happy to update my review if it's resolved. Thanks.**

The latest 5.4 update allows you to use googel recaptcha shortcodes still but if the user doesn't tick the box you normally get a warning and a orange box stating there are missing fields ect, after this update the text is missing from the warning and only the orange border is shown.

I started using this plugin a few years ago based on the large number of installations claimed in the plugin repository. The plugin has been quite reliable for me, however, the issue with the reCAPTCHA 3.0 implementation causing 100% of messages sent to land in the spam folder has not yet been resolved to my knowledge. This is a long-standing issue that needs to be addressed. The good thing is that you can implement AKISMET spam checking in the design of your forms, presuming that you have AKISMET installed on your site. Overall I'm pretty happy with the plugin but like many other users, I'm frustrated by the poor/absent/slow support responses.

The support is very poor. In my case they neither properly read nor understood my support thread. Therefore they asked mostly useless question that were of no real help for the solution of the problem. If you follow up they only answer after 4-5 days or not at all. The problem is still unsolved! Thats extremely demotivating and annoying. I am thinking of switching to an alternative solution.
